    I am in deep deep dilemma

    You guys remember i said i didn’t like the palio ak47’s? i eventually settled on buying rakza 7’s to replace the ak47’s. After ordering and waiting for my rakza’s to arrive, i developed really good feeling with the ak47’s, being able to topspin like i never was able to, backhand punch when i didn’t even know i could, and developing great confidence to attack like i’m never going to miss. So now i’m deciding whether i should stay with the ak47’s since they work for me or should i still stick to my plan of replacing them with rakza’s since they are way better rubbers and i should adapt to them for good.

    Just stop thinking about your equipment so much, it doesn't matter a tenth of what you think.
    Just go play! (and try to find a club and a coach)

    This falls into the category of "if you have to ask, it makes no difference"

    You only asked about the Rakza's recently, so I'm not sure just how much you feel you've improved in that short time.

    I would suggest you try the Rakza's when they arrive (there's no harm) - If you hate them, just switch back.

    But more importantly, find a club, find some good players, and just play as much as you can.

    R7 has stood the test of time. It’s a great rubber for any style. You can use it on fh or bh.

    Let me put it to you in more contemporary manner:

    You are going steady with Jennifer A and it is a great and steady relationship. However, you got bored and thinking the grass is always better on the other side of the fence, you started flirting with Angelina J.

    Now that you are with Angelina J, you reminisce about your happy days with Jennifer A and wishes to return to her.

    The good thing abt TT is that you can have all of them be it Jennifer, Alison, Phillipa, Sue, Deborah, Annabel too...

    AK 47 is the cheaper alternative to Mark V. But it is a good rubber for us, mere mortals. Considering the price, I would say it is a good bargain, compared to Razka 7, Fastarc 1-G or Vega Pro.

    i just need you all opinions on whether i should still switch to the rakza and adapt to it since it is realistically a better rubber than the ak47 and worth using

    Why don't you just keep the R7 in the package when they arrive, use the AK47 till it wears out and then put the R7 on after and let yourself take your time to get used to the R7 when you put it on.

    Probably part of what was going on with AK47 at first was: you simply were not used to using it.

    Now, stop messing with equipment, play with what you have, and when the AK47 wears out, then you can put the R7 on.
