am using 729 Faster on my forehand, replacing Bryce.
It is every bit as good as Bryce. Tt
has got german sponge(soft), and it is 2.2mm.
Even though it has got soft sponge, I feel it is still a little harder
than bryce. hopes that helps.
experience, you can easily stroke a fast, spinny loop from below table level
with the Faster. Now, it won't be AS spinny as the Geospin Tacky (black), but it
will jump with more speed.
don't use speed glue a lot, but I have found the Faster to be very consistent
both with and without speed glue. However, with the Faster, you can generate
substantial speed and spin without the re-glueing.
used it quite a bit. The most noticeable
thing about it is its weight. Quite heavy.
topsheet is sticky and the sponge is a springy, fast German variety. It lacks
touch at the table because it's so bouncy, but take a step or two back and it's
one of the best looping rubbers around. I tend to use more 729 Cream on MRS or
Japanese sponge now than I do anything else. But if I were more of a Euro-style
mid-distance looper, I'd probably still be using the faster.
Tacky (black) is about as spinny as a rubber gets. The red sheet isn't as tacky
or as spinny. The Faster will be, well, "faster" than the Geospin. It
will also be bouncier and heavier. I play a lot of defense, and I'm thinking
about putting some black Geospin Tacky 2.0 on a defensive blade for a tryout. This
is not something I would even consider with the Faster.
is a less sticky but still fairly chinese-like topsheet over a very german
sponge. It's probably the best looping variation of 729 from mid distance. It
lacks the touch of some other variants in close to the table. It also is
surprisingly heavy. But if you're wanting a german sponge it's more consistent
than the 40 series. It's a nice hardness at 40 and glues up wonderfully.
it's best for loopers who need power for a distance.
