I have been using Friendship 729-08 ES on my backhand for quite a while. I really love this rubber. With this rubber, I could loop every ball on my backhand regardless short or long ball. I could place the ball at any angle or corner I like with my backhand loop. I am using Butterfly Timo Boll Spirit blade with Andro Rasant on my forehand and Friendship 729-08 ES on my backhand. Friendship 729-08 ES rubber is very cheap however it is very controlled and very spinny. I will keep using this rubber on my backhand for a long time. My games have been improved lots since I use Friendship 729-08 ES rubber on my backhand. However I have to insist that Friendship 729-08 ES is only used for my backhand, I will not use it on my forehand.

On a Galaxy T8 blade with DHS G888 on the other side. Used for 3 hours against my robot. Medium tacky. Faster but less spin than DHS (not by much). More consistent and easier to control than DHS. I play a loop game and both these high throw rubbers loop easily. Currently prefer the 729 on my forehand. Will try this combination at competition this week.

A good offensive topspin rubber with good control (I have it on a fast balsa blade--Galaxy T-11+). Produces good spin on serves as well as on topspin drives. I bought it based on reviews just to try it -- turned out to be a keeper. I like it better than the commercial H3 Neo I also have which is similar. For me, the 729-08 ES is plenty fast, with more spin and more control. I'm surprised I haven't seen more people using it--very good rubber at a reasonable price.

Very good control in the short game. Spinny serves. Opens well against underspin. Pushes well. This rubber is really growing on me. Interested to see how long it lasts-especially since it is vacuum wrapped and presumably factory tuned.

firstly, this is an offensive rubber. It has a nice touch. It's faster than 729 cream transcend and hurricane 3 but it keeps a nice control and many gears for short game. Trajectories are specific to the rubber so the hand movement must change a little when you play with the rubber. If you do the good arc when you loop, it will be very hard for the opponent because the acceleration and sping is amazing. This rubber is for 729 lovers.
