    Depend on your skills, I mean for a beginner its fine. If you are already seasoned player you would not use this rubber. Go for tensor rubbers.

    World top 100 player William Henzell still use it (I think the AD version) on both sides..

    I used it and it is very balanced I switched to 1.8mm though..
    In all level of play I think it is still very versatile.

    Remember, Sir, technique over equipment.. That's my opinion..

    I mean when you need to deffense using some FH / BH Chops ... With yasaka mark v its too hard to make a successful chop with this rubber .

    I dont know the cause of this case . Is it the Max thickness or the rubber itself.

    I have used Mark V rubbers for years, both the standard and the Mark V M2, generally in 2mm thickness. Having not played for 15 years, I picked up my old bat recently and amazingly, after a good clean, the rubbers were in decent condition. The durability of Mark V is amazing.

    It is quite a fast rubber but still with lots of control by todays standards, but as a beginner (as I am once again) I find it too fast so have gone to something slower to help me redevelop my technique.

    It is a great rubber though, loads of spin, plenty of power and seems to just work for most people most of the time.

    As many Amature TT players there are in Korea, AND as popular a brand Yasaka is here, in three years I have yetto see ANYONE use Mark V, period. I have seen exactly ONE sheet of Sriver as well.


    OTH, we see a boatload of Yasaka Extend HS. ($40 USD) That is the standard rubber of choice for many coaches for beginning and intermediate players. Yasaka must have through Hanool Sports distributor sold a few million sheets in the 2010 decade already. Omega II is the overwhelming choice of those who refuse to pay for Tenergy, but now TAK9.com has made a lot of inroads in marketing Tibhar, Stiga, Euro stuff and that is getting on a roll.

    I have a Mark V, out of the box it performs beautifully, very spinny with great control. After a few months it loses about 20% performance-wise and settles into an above average rubber and it seems to stay this way for a long time. For me this rubber beats any other rubber on two counts: versatility and durability (just barely beating out Sriver). For me it does all strokes well with emphasis on control and not so much in speed. I use it on an ALL blade, great control, fantastic dwell, spinny serves and pushes, blocks well and I have not found problems chopping with it (although I'm not much of a chopper, but do so occasionlly). Would I buy another sheet? Definitely! for my 11 year old kid, just started playing for 6 months now.

    Hanwool Sports Korea sells Mark V M2 and a J-Pen blade as a set for $40 USD, so the market here for Mark V M2 (and Mark V) is pretty bleak. That rubber alone is supposed to retail for well over $40 USD...

    That is amazing considering how strong a brand Yasaka is and how well Extend HS sells like hotcakes...

    Also, the Yasaka T is a standard must-have item for Korean TT players.
