Several top players prefer the pure wooden blade construction, appreciating the special feel of pure wood. In Extra Special Yasaka combines harder inner veneers with a little softer middle veneer to get the right power without vibration. In addition the surface veneers are thin, selected hard walnut veneers, making the blade faster. Yasaka Extra Special is the ultimate pure wooden blade for demanding players who like hot power strokes.

the top sheet is the same as for Rakza 7. The sponge is softer which gives the rubber more sound and built-in speed glue effect. With Rakza 7 Soft the control characteristics are improved. After hitting the ball with top spin the curve of the ball is slightly higher, giving little bit bigger margins in the game. In the short return play, the ball feel is better.
