A extremely fast and more spin rubber. Prefect rubber for the highest level players. Good topspin performance.

i have this rubber 1,9 mm.
the first time i smashed, the ball broke.
loopability is amasing ,if you know your teckniks - and that with more kontrol than hexer hd. that tells you alot.
close and far from table - = total control .
it is one rubber that can be placed on all types of blades and stil make great results for you. this is a keeper once you have tryed it.
butterfly ten 05 - 64 is very sentesive to its loopspin... and is as fast as you want it to be.. it is faster than all on the market today, including
It does not lack anything in the loop department.
Ballplacement is too good to be true as well.
so, go buy it ,,,, and renew your joy of the game.

Rasant is the first rubber that is clearly definable as better than Tenergy. Counter looping is so easy and the spin is so heavy it's ridiculous. Yet still maintains more control than Tenergy.
Thomas_Smith said this on May 2, 2012:
The Rasant feels and plays very much like a speed glued rubber. More than previous rubbers. It loops well and counter loops like a dream.
It's control is good for the speed, just take in account it is a fast rubber and to treat it like you would a speed glued rubber, ie. use it on an all+ 5 ply

This is unfair guys, who rated this rubber so low that it has such bad ratings ..???!!!
This is the best on the market to date. Tenergy can not compete. I used to love this side but not anymore, because Tenergy80 is not on the market, but already has inflated rating??

Someone keeps giving extremely low scores for a lot of rubbers on tabletennisdb, deliberately destroying real ratings. There needs to be a way to discard such ratings, or some idiots will make the data unusable.

Finally I found a perfect forehand rubber (Nittaku hammond pro beta on backhand).
Super spiny, fast, consistent. This rubber is for offensive player. Topspins are damaging for opponents. Blocks are easy and fast. One of the best rubbers on the market. If you like medium-soft rubbers, like I do, this rubber is for you.
santilohi said this on July 1, 2012:
No provada mucho tiempo un dia solo , pero mi impresion es que es una goma ofensiva, cara, muy rapida ,buena para el ataque y contraataque ,en cuanto a rotacion o efecto ,no tiene tanto como las gomas chinas u otros modelos europeos Donic Acuda -Hexer-Magna -menos que Tenergi-05. Para jugar en juego corto ,encima de la mesa no va tan bien ,ni para cortar ni para realizar Top Spin en juego corto ,pues es demasiado rapida .Prefiero otras gomas con esponjas verdes ,mas baratas,como la Reactor Thunder roja , mas control y efecto .menos velocidad y para mi mucho mejor la Ritc 729 Higher ,Negra ,con esponja verde estupenda,una de mis favoritas hasta la fecha,de derecha y de reves
Macheeste said this on July 11, 2012:
I am Macheeste, 59yrs old and playing since I was 12 yrs. old. I play from both wings but favor BH and close to the table. This rubber @1.9 is amazing I get the pop I need on the BH and can loop with low trajectory on FH. Flip on FH & BH is good without the big bounce of Tenergy 5. I couldn't chop right away but got the hang of it. Spin is very good too!

Very spinny rubber. Good control.
ersin001 said this on December 10, 2012:
i have used tenergy 05 fh and 64 bh for the last two years. Rasant is alot spinnier than 05 and speed depends on the racket angle and technique ofcourse but its faster the 05. at the backhand the throw angle is lower than 64 which is good for my game.
al1 said this on January 16, 2013:
This is really pleasure to play with. But in really short game it presumes really good reading of incoming spin, otherwise there will be places for offense from opponent's side.
clublevelplayer said this on January 26, 2013:
Pair this with Timo Boll Spirit and played this rubber for about 6 times in a 2 hour per day training session.
I started playing table tennis two yrs ago and play seriously 6 months ago. My style of play is an all around with a strong backhand flick wrist actions.
Appearance, has a shiny top sheet black rubber. the green sponge has a unique smell but attractive color.
Rasant as forehand rubber is a bit lack of something compare to Magic carbon and joola samba plus which i already tried with tbspirit when it comes to forehand control topspin but great in spin drive and top spin with full trust stroke. Attracts so much moist. need to clean with sponge every set. Its main strength is on its counter drive and counter loop.

julio_takeuchi said this on February 18, 2013:
Es una excelente goma, muy buena opci³n para no gastar gran cantidad de dinero en las Tenergys, tiene mucho potencial para juego a corta-mediana y larga distancia, buen efecto en los topspin, flips y para los golpes planos tiene una excelente velocidad, es muy buena para contrataques al principio un poco difcil de controlar las recepciones, supopngo que por el tacky de las mismas, los bloqueos son excelentes, el arco de la pelota cuando se roza es asomrbroso, la esponja verde es bantante llamativa.
En fin una excelente goma a un excelente precio, muy din¡mica para el tenis de mesa allround y ofensivo, excelente spin, r¡pida y un control increible, la uso en una madera Tibhar Karas de carbono y se siente excelente una gran opci³n para todos..... La recomiendo 100%
RNL said this on March 22, 2013:
Using the 2.1 on the FH of a Xiom V1 Quad. The spin is incredible. Players I couldn't out hit are now sometimes off the end of the table on returns due to the spin, and the side spin is very apparent. Very controllable, and most importantly, is not as sensitive to incoming spin as mant other spinny rubbers. I still prefer Rakza7 regular or soft for my BH.
uclranchi said this on March 29, 2013:
Bye Bye TENERGY.Evry thing about this rubber is better then Tenergy even its price.The best rubber ever in world TABLE TENNIS , lighter,faster,spinier,cheeper and handsom as well with the florocent green coloured sponge...........
phaddal said this on April 12, 2013:
better than the best
Lawrencee_ said this on April 12, 2013:
A very good rubber that excels in opening loop and power loops, it is good in short game, and comes to it right in the second position for topspin to topspin. Spin on serves is very good, but it is not easy to generate a lot, unless you use your wrist. Overall I am very happy with it and it has become my rubber of choice. Recomended for players whi have their force in their topspin play!
eduardo said this on April 21, 2013:
To me, at first, it was a big disappointment. It felt like a fast anti spin rubber. So I put it away in displease. After a few weeks it came to my mind that it might play different on another blade. So I put it on a stiffer blade and the difference was such that it could not just be because of the blade. So I put it back on my regular blade. The rubber had become very spinney by just "resting". And is still very fast. Although it's kind of hard sponge it is flexible enough to sink in the ball by hitting hard. And that is how you have to do if you want to get all its spin potential. Yet not the rubber for an average player like me. I would say a more trained player would like this rubber for f/h. Someone who has the proper technique for the short game. On the attacking game anyone can use it.
lester said this on May 4, 2013:
The green sponge is really cool, definitely makes you look like the coolest player on the court. I use this rubber on my forehand with ZLF and I love it. Whether its looping topspins and backspins or close table counterlooping. This rubber does it all. Very fast, very spinny. The only thing I would say negatively aboutthis rubber is that it tends to lack power once you get to the middle and far lengths of the table.

Wow! Top 5 all times rubber. Amazing in all aspects.
ernesto81 said this on May 24, 2013:
Reference quality rubber. Outstanding , perfect speed and spin, nice control. Can not find anything wrong with it, a true delight. I use Xiom and Tihbar Nianmor on my blade, but I tell you, the Rasant rubber is fantastic , magnificent. Buy it , I did!
hugolovesya said this on June 19, 2013:
I have this on a xiom aigis (def+ to all) and forehand chops are very easy to make. It is fast but very controllable. You can unleash loops powerful enough to win points even if you are using a defensive blade.
guybrush123 said this on August 6, 2013:
A very good rubber, and the first i test from Andro, but i hope, not the last. Its way up there with Tenergy, Rakza, Tenzone, Calibra, Bluefire, Acuda unt so weiter.
The spin is amazing, its easy to play with, the sponge is poison green, and the smell is caontagious for other people. What more do you ask for a tensor?
Innerforce_ZLC said this on September 15, 2013:
very good fh rubber,easy to survis,chop and block, a lot of spin speed is good too, loop on topspin is excellent... but a bit heavy on 2.1, I think this is the rubber that I was looking for... realy recomand, but not on 2.1 thickness, may be 1.9 or 1.7 is better ... on my bty Innerforce ZLC the speed is too muchhhh......
mattTT09 said this on October 4, 2013:
amazing rubber. i dont reccommend using water based glue with it. i had trouble gluing it but no touble playing with it. effortless spins and flat drives. amzing rubber
jrado said this on October 5, 2013:
Andro Rasant...in a world full of T05/64/80 etc.. it cuts through them like a hot katana through butter. It is the Godzilla with poise and precision of a ballerina. It is alive. You want speed and power? It shoots balls out at trans-warp speed with pin-point accuracy. It has more spin than the following rubbers I have personally played with; SpinArt, T05/64/80,Tibhar Grip S, Tibhar Evolution FX-P, Tackiness Chop/Drive, Hurricane 3 Neo, Yasaka Rakza 7, Haifu etc. and Adidas P7 which comes in a close second.
It has so many gears that I did everything with it today, from drop shots that just died over the net, to extremely wide angle touch blocks for outright winners, to lobs, chops and extinction level doomsday loops that go through USATT 2,000 rated players and powerful, precise and punishing punch blocks. I use it on my backhand in the 2.1mm thickness. It pushes exceptionally well and although it produces more spin than anything else out there, it is not as affected by incoming spin as many rubbers. It is like taking your 2014 Berlinetta out for a spin; it looks great and cruises nicely and comfortably down the streets of downtown. Then you take it to the track, put your helmet on and rip the asphalt off the track as you red-line the tachometer with every shift and carve through corners with the agility of a cheetah then create a wormhole as you fly through the long straights. Rasant will provide you with every chance to win the point. If you don't, it is because of user error.
geeza_1 said this on October 8, 2013:
This is quite possibly the best rubber currently on the market.
I honestly did not think I could find a better rubber than the Rakza 7, but this is it. The spin is absolutely insane and combined with excellent touch.
You'd be crazy not to try this one, especially at the price!
lisaehk said this on October 13, 2013:
Just as good as its brother "Rasant Turbo", but this is better for forehand i think!
Andrikos96 said this on November 19, 2013:
Was previously using T05. I find it better. Its speed is ridiculous, spin is awesome and the control is extremely balanced. Top quality rubber made by Andro.
ejb said this on December 7, 2013:
A new year a new bat; well new TT rubbers at least. I had been using Acuda S1 (FH) and Acuda S1 Turbo (BH) on a Boll ALC blade for over 12 months, nothing really wrong with either of them, but they needed replacing and I wanted something with a tad more power. After pouring over sites like this I eventually opted for Rasant (2.1 mm FH) and Tenergy 25FX (2.1mm BH) on the same Boll ACL blade (using Andro free glue). After three sessions of play, I am broadly satisfied with my new set up. Rasant has certainly not disappointed, it is noticeably quicker (but not uncontrollably) and my topspins still fizz with as much spin as they did with S1. Blocking is great too. In short, it has improved my game. Adjusting to T 25FX on the other hand has been harder. Off the bat it feels (and is) slower than the Rasant & the S1 turbo. Shots on I used to put away for winners on my backhand, now find the net. Not surprising perhaps the T 25FX is after all a softer rubber. You need to use you body (hip) rather than just forearm & wrist on the backhand to get the ball to go. But when you do and catapult effect kicks in this rubber is pretty cool, and offers a gear that others don't have. Where it is really exceptional, though, is in blocking. Just as other reviewers have said the control on the block is excellent and I find myself getting a lot more balls back than I used to. Overall, happy with the switch even if I haven't fully adjusted to T 25FX yet. Now if I could just find a better blade...the equipment whoring continues.
UPDATE: two months later it is still a great rubber for a European style looping game. But its short game lets it down, isn't very forgiving. Switched to Razaka 7, which so far, has been a better rubber all round.
JNBWA said this on December 25, 2013:
For me it's the best rubber for safe in many style of play.Very good speed, spin and control. I just would like that it would be tackier. It's cheapper than "T" butterfly family. At last, it lasts a very long time. The rubber stay almost the same after several trainnings many months later.

Mientras sigas practicando con esta esponja, le agarras mas el gusto es muy rapida y muy controlable que excelente, probada en 2.1mm
xVill said this on January 10, 2014:
I absolutely love this rubber from Andro. I use it in 2.1m on an off- blade and it's effortless to create heavy and I mean HEAVY tospin with this rubber. I do believe this rubber is the 'Tenergy Killer' it's more cost effective, more durable and in my opinion creates a hell of a lot more spin than the Tenergy series. I have one qualm with this rubber I find my forehand pushes hard to keep short, maybe it's to do with my offensive blade other than that this rubber is from the gates of heaven LOL.
tubelover said this on January 13, 2014:
This is the best rubber for me so far. I prefer this one to all the Tenergy series. It's not too fast but with a lot of spin and an amazing control, a very good balance overall. I use it on some blades: Butterfly Zhang Jike Super ZLC, Andro Treiber Z, and Darker 7p-2a.7t. And the performance of this rubber is always consistent. The green sponge is pretty too. Love it!
sto4i07 said this on January 27, 2014:
Attacking game is very good, it is not easy to generate a lot spin on serves,short game need to take care.2.1m rubber is a little bit heavy

Faster..spiny.. Awesome rubber
Philjones said this on March 22, 2014:
The reviews on this site regarding Rasant are scarcely believable.... Speed, Spin, Control, all as good as it gets. I bought the rubber but didn't buy the hype. And then I used it. The learning curve is steep, chopping and short game requires a deft touch... but I would say less than most Euro rubbers. Rasant is billed as faster than faster (pretty lame marketing but whatever) the speed somehow isn't anything crazy at regular hitting speed... but if you feel like it (as you should), just to drop jaws and destroy balls, there is some gears that reach above what is conceivably possible. How much speed? You can maim your opponents as they dive screaming in fear, and I'm only being marginally dramatic. After gluing it feels like they have a settling period, where the speed and spin becomes more linear and more predicatable. After they've settled down there is nothing to describe the feeling of effortless domination these allow your attacking game. So perfect, so so so perfect! I've used the full gambit of competing rubbers... This is the new benchmark for aggressive and technically capable players.
chaohero said this on May 7, 2014:
I use RSM platinum special (10.5 mm) pen-hold racket. The spin is good enough, while the speed is relatively not enough (it islower than the XIOM vegapro and sigma europe). The push is weak (may be due to a softer sponge). Its easy to do the loops in low and high speed. The block is weak (softer sponge for RSM 10.5 mm racket)
vanjr said this on May 12, 2014:
Fast, high spin, very high quality. It is not a high control rubber at all. I have used it both in 2.1 and 1.9 sponge. I prefer the 1.9 for blocking. The thinner sponge also packs plenty of spin and power. Very good for opening on all types of balls.
danlaabraten said this on May 18, 2014:
Wonderful to play with! It takes some time to get used to, but then...wow. great speed and extraordinary spin. poison green sponge.
smasher said this on May 24, 2014:
Spin is less than that of Adidas P7, The sheet yields a medium throw. The sponge is a bit soft that make the rubber not fast as claimed form statistics above which I expect more. Over all, Disappointed as the Donic's high end !
Loop_in_key_of_Bb said this on June 20, 2014:
I'm around 1600 rating and use Xiom Aria 5-ply all wood shakehand blade, typically with Vega Pro on FH, although I had recently was using Omega IV Pro which felt way too fast with a rock-hard sponge. I use a very thin application of Butterfly Free chack.
Rasant is reasonably fast, but not nearly as fast as I expected based on other reviews and compared to latest generation of tensors. Speed felt similar to Vega Pro.
Rasant has a sponge that feels medium hardness with an extremely soft topsheet. Somehow the whole setup feels softer when playing than when pressing it with your finger.
When looping the rubber really holds the ball a long time and produces a lot of spin with good speed. The feature I like most is the control. I felt like I couldnï¿½ï¿½t miss when topspinning, even when making less than ideal contact. It actually felt like the sweet spot on my blade was enlarged. Iï¿½ï¿½ve never experienced that simply by changing rubber. The sound is also really loud and satisfying, and reminded me of Acuda S2.
Hitting and smashing were less than average.Softer feel made it feel kind of sluggish.
Short game is extraordinarily good. Returning serves with a short push is easy, giving me opportunities to attack on next ball. The great control makes me feel confident.
Update: After 1 month, I went back to Vega Pro. Rasant plays well but felt too soft for me on FH.
ghazkull6 said this on July 5, 2014:
this rubber is a great backhand rubber it can generate great spin for loops and is quite fast. it is a great smashing rubber
after 4 months of playing with this rubber 6 hours a week. i have to say it still performs quite well even with temperature changes. in fact i think the rubber has actually improved over i think it may be more spinney then it was when i first got it. would really recommend the rasant if your looking for a fast and spinney non tacky rubber.
gogotop said this on July 16, 2014:
The rubber is fast, it has incredible spin and control. Blocks and serves with it are easy. It's a pleasure to be playing with it.
Josh20 said this on August 20, 2014:
Pros: Spin, speed, serves and loops.
Cons: Sponge design, top sheet tackiness and short control.
Good for offensive players. But that sponge though looks so bad it would put me off buying this rubber. Tenergy is better.
lineup32 said this on August 26, 2014:
smooth playing rubber with several gears, touch controlled spin.. Using it on a 5 ply custom wood kiso+rosewood blade. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a upper level off- rubber for carbon or wood blades.
gen2player said this on September 21, 2014:
Playing with it on a hard blade find that
it is a fast rubber but dwell time is minimal on backhand for topspin shots, excellent blocking. Overall do not rate it as highly as other reviewers.
zhan2133 said this on September 22, 2014:
This is no backhand rubber. Only God can bring its full potential on the backhand side. I couldn't loop or flick well where I could do with T64 easily. I have it (1.9) both sides on SPW blade. It's the best setup I have ever tried so far. My third ball attack is better than when I was using Chinese rubber. The spin on loops is no fake spin. They are real! It is not so good for blocking. A counter loop is much more preferred. Counter loops at mid distance is new experience for me. It has a low trajectory, but it clears the net and put your opponent under pressure even if you are farther away from the table. Also, it has so much control. It is very different from T05 in this property. Since it's a tensor, some shots tend to go long when you are too close to the table.
Jelmero said this on December 21, 2014:
i played always with hard rubbers on my bh like rakza 9 but this is better for me now. more control, much spin and when you hit it right a lot of speed
kayuhkuat said this on January 28, 2015:
For me, it was a good rubber to try. I cant give any ranking because dont want to damage another rubber ranking.
But just comparing to tenergy 05,,
T05 feel springy, more fast, more spin in close table game. Little tacky, can brush spin.. Euro style rubber with small chineese rubber feel.
Rasant feel slow close table, more control. Can brush spin but not spin as t05, feel non tacky, mechanical spin is better, far from table loop or topspin is good and fast. Euro style rubber.
Which one is the best?
Depends on ur skill. They are no winner between t05 and rasant, they are different characters. I love both of them..
Loose the game?
Its not the rubber fault, its u...
