I find it interesting 2 very similar flagship rubbers are coming out at the same time. Obviously people will be more interested in Butterfly  but I wonder which will actually be better.  I like that Rakza Z will have 2 different sponge hardnesses.

I have seen a few Japanese youtubers with reviews but not sure if any made a direct comparison.

Maybe someone with loads of time could translate Smile

Rakza Z  weighs 74g uncut and D09C weighs 73g uncut. Topsheet feel is very similar with RZ feeling just a little more "sticky".  I also have a sheet of RZ Extra Hard and it weighs 78g. Hopefully I  can test this week

If we are basing on the normal dimensions of Butterfly and Yasaka, then Rakza Z series is a quite a bit heavier despite being softer than D09c.

Butterfly is normally 
Length: 180
Width: 167/168

Yasaka Rakza series normally
Length: 170/169
Width: 170/169

I have decided not to buy the Rakza Z series yet, but looking at the dignics i have it seem like a promising rubber but it is not very tacky...i won't say much until i will try it once the clubs open up again
