hey, i used t05 as fh and changed it to rakza 7. they are quite similar, so i think soft version will be slower,softer and more controllable ;) u want to change it for backhand?

I am currently using R7/FH, R7S/BH, both max. The R7 is just as fast, but not as spinny as t05, but the R7S "feels" like t05 and just a bit slower than the R7.

I've got R7S on one of my setups. 2.0 on BH. Excellent rubber.

I have rakza 7 soft on backhand and non soft on FH. I'm thinking of going to non soft version on backhand aswell, but the soft version is a great rubber.

I got my Bandas set up with R7/R7s and the other has R7/R7.. All max..

I prefer the R7/R7.. Spin/speed ratio is great. R7s is a bit slower and Im not finding the extra spin in my setup. :(

Just glued the Rakza 7 Soft on my backhand today.
Slow? Yeah slow haha but pretty fast when the contact is thick.
Suits my backhand well. flicking, blocking,countering and a hell lot of punching :D
I can take spinny balls really early and my teammates are having a lot of trouble
figuring out what to do next after their attack was punched right back at em :D :D

I have tried both.

If you loop more with the backhand, then go for the R7. It has a tighter arc. If you block, counter and punch more, then go for the R7 soft. It's more insensitive to incoming topspin.

Can you compare it to the Rakza X and X soft?

I don't think Rakza 7 is similar to tenergy 05, Rakza 7 is slower and has a hard sponge, and the feeling is pretty different.

Im using Rakza 7, on my back hand, that's a hard rubber with a hard feeling, like i said before that's not q replacement for t 05, imo there's some similar rubers on the marked on terms of Speed, Throw Angle and spin capacity but not in feeling like t05..

t05 does not suit my backhand well and that is why I made a change
to Rakza 7 soft. much better in blocking and punching

Love 7 soft, use forehand on Stiga WRB 7.6 and Viscaria.. Tried 7 regular 9 regular and X regular. Perfer 7 soft better.. More control and spin. Good on flicks. and holds the ball a little long. more forgiving on errors. Tried Razka X on backhand, too hard for me.. Prefer a gripy and fast.... Found Tibhar EL-P... very tacky and good speed and spin combo
