The New Spin Machine!
No speed glue is needed! Trough continues testing it has been possible
to concentrate the "tension increase" on the spin factor. Until now ,
"tension rubber" concentrated on increasing spin and speed equally but
with the Yasaka concept the "spin tension" increase by 2/3rd and the
speed tension increased by 1/2.
XTEND does develop superior spin characteristics especially useful for
the 40 mm ball.
- Speed: 94
- Spin: 89
- Control: 78

Yasaka X-Tend Review
Excellent Rubber!! Plenty of spin, good speed and GREAT
sound. I use it on my forehand with Tibhar Rapid Dtechs on my backhand.
The Rapid Dt has more control but the Xtend is more spinny with higher
arcing loops and a little more pop.and it gives a louder, more
satisfying, sweet sound when hitting hard. JJS
I have tried out Butterfly Bryce/FX, Yasaka Extend and
Yasaka Mark V 30o on the Butterfly Schlager Carbon blade. With the Mark
V reglued and the others not. I believe that these combos’s setups are
very much of the same level of performance. With Bryce being expensive,
Extend is in the middle and Mark V being the cheapest. If you’re a price
conscious player and don’t like reglueing then Extend is a good option.
Mark V is a little bit cheaper and is slower than Extend. To increase
the speed of Mark V to match with the Extends you will have to use
“speed glue” but then the total cost will go up. I find the spin on the
Extend is not up to the level the manufacturer’s claim though. It is
very much similar to the Mark V. TTApprentice
This rubber is very similar with F1. But I will
rewrite My comment anyway. I think the spin is overstated in the
adniversary (but it is still awesome though) but the speed is definitely
more than 8.3 which is shown in the main yasaka rubber page. I admire
the glue effect , it is awesome and overally it is a great rubber. For
who doesn't use glue but like extra kick of speed and definitely
high-spin , this rubber is the way to go. All-rounder
