    Long V vs JM SZLC for Rakza Z and Fastarc G1

    Hi! I’m trying a new setup:
    Rakza Z and Fastarc G1.
    Both seem viable for fh and bh.
    That said, I’m debating putting them on my Long V or JM SZLC or Clipper Cr Wrb.

    Any thoughts?

    I have Long 5X, i was using T80 with it in the past until it is dead rubber from both sides, then i ordered DHS H3 rubbers only for this time, one is Prov blue sponge and the other is just commercial normal H3 both NEO version, i didn't test it yet but hopefully soon, if i have to choose another rubbers i can choose Fastarc G1 as one of them, but not Rakza Z, i like Rakza 7 normal and soft, i also tried Rakza 9 on a defence blade but not much good, Rakza Z could be better on Clipper blade than defence slow one, but very fast blade i don't know.

    I am testing many different cheap rubbers nowadays, for FH i prefer hard top sheet with average sponge, in fact i prefer sponge in 1.4-1.8mm for FH, for BH i can go with 2.0mm but not hard top sheet, but i want to give those H3 rubbers more test and try to see if i can adjust or suit my style somehow, and i want cheap rubbers, tired of buying BTY Tenergy many times.

    Another options are Tibhar MX-P and FXP, i don't like MX-P as i tested two rubbers and both didn't like on different blades anyway, but i tested FX-P of others blade not mine and it was better, a coach using it and for his students in one club i visit, he uses Tibhar rubbers since years, so choosing FX-P means a lot if he is a good coach, i also heard Donic rubbers are good but didn't test them yet.

    Rakza Z is better than G1 in short game. G1 is bouncier and faster than Z.

    Speed: SZLC>Long V>Clipper
    Flex: Clipper>Long V>SZLC
    Looping (spin ceiling) Long V>Clipper>SZLC
    Blocking SZLC=Clipper > Long V

    It really depends on your game. Long V is for FH-oriented power looper. SZLC is for speed, hitting and blocking. Clipper is very well rounded.

    Inner carbon blades are non linear when it comes to power. Meaning the carbon kick that you get can be a love or hate thing. I grew to dislike it while playing with my fang bo b2x.

    I have tried a pg7, a clipper clone... The feeling is pretty stiff compared to 5 plys.

    Awesome, this is helpful and makes sense. Been trying on the long v and feels a bit too soft. I might try razaka z on both sides of the Jm szlc next.
