Can there be a better rubber... DO NOT AGREE WITH SPIN SPEED CONTROL RATINGS GIVEN HERE... my take is:
Control 9.7 (There is probably no other rubber matching to control offered by this rubber)
Through angle is medium-high
Durability of top surface is exceptional. 7 months old rubber acts like new.
Wonderful looping... I start using it on FH for its precision. WIll soon have both sides with the same rubber.
I played with Rakza 7 Soft on BH for two years until recently when I realized its wonderful grace on the forehand as well. This is the rubber which would overtake every other rubber in past and future. Very good for top spin play, blocks, chops or what you want to hear... this is a truly great rubber from Yasaka.
I have played with Rakza 7, Rakza 9, Tibhar Evo MXP, Mark V and many other rubbers... but trust me, Rakza 7 soft is one thing which cannot be compared with any other rubber. Its just so unique and awesome.

I have fh and bh max on nitaku acoustic blade, the combo is the best I found so far. Extremely spinny high throw and arc with excellent control. Suitable for strong looping game. Not that great if you want to smash all the time .but still does it well. I tryed rakza 7 but throw is much lower than rakza7 soft. R7 soft sponge is much livelier with nice sound. By the way new polyball seems to have not effect R7 soft performance, think due to the softness of sponge is in favour of the new balls which wraps around the hard polyball better.

Using (both sides) in 2mm with Tibhar Stratus Power Wood blade. Great combination to learn and practice technique. Rubber is much slower than the Xiom Vega Europe and Hexer+ I've tried on this blade. So I wouldn't say it's "fast" as others have said here. Throw angle is very slightly higher than both, with similar control to XVE. Makes up for lack of speed with higher spin, which is nice. Most players would probably like it on their BH, but if you want to improve technique it's great for FH also. Has a great sound with many blades due to it's softness. Reminds me of my first setup (in 2006) Primorac OFF- with BTY Flextra both sides, although that was way slower than TSPW with YR7S both sides.

I used Rakza soft for forehand 3 monts on samsonov carbon and there are few people that said that im very consistetnt and precise for all strikes.. "like im puting ball on table with hands" i changed it because my club buyed me pair of joola maxxx 450 .. witch have lower throw and its faster...
its very light rubber, and sponge is sensitive..
one of the best players in club (blocker) use it for forehand, and he have bad forehand tehnic - so its very forgiving rubber...
