I'd like to know what you're thinking about these rubbers. My blade is Yasaka Extra 3D SoftCarbon. I prefer an offensive/allround game with mostly forehand topspins.
Rakza costs in my country 145 PLN and Vega 110 PLN.
As far as I know (and one of the things I'd like you to is to verify this information) Vega is slightly lighter, and it has a minimally more spin, control and gears.
Rakza is more durable (harder sponge) and has a higher throw angle.
According to durability, maybe there are some people who play one of these for a long time?

I ask for your advice. Maybe it has some sense to buy one of these on forehand and second on backhand?

Thanks in advance for the reply,

Alois Rosario

Hi Mark,

I haven't seen Rakza but I can tell you I use Vega Pro and it is a great rubber.   Others that have used Vega Euro and Rakza may be able to give you more information.

I am using rakza 7 on YE extra 3d with MAX sponge, but the rakza has a higher throw than Mark V per say, since I haven't tried vega europe. Compared to mark v, rakza is much more elastic and speedy and spinny, but you have back up more or compact your stroke.
