Rubber type : inverted
Most players are looking for a rubber that fits them just right. Nittaku has introduced the Fastarc series which includes a variety to choose from. The Fastarc G-1 has the most power of the series. It's a very direct and to the point rubber. All offensive strokes from fast drives at the table to long-distance counter looping are executed with high precision. The hardest and fastest of all the Fastarcs.

02/11/2022 Love it Review by GEROGE MOURIKIS
Quality
I used Tenergy 05 &19 because there are amazing rubbers, but I didn't like that much in the short game because are really bouncy. I researched for an alternative and I bought from TT11 2 nittaku G1 2.0 for a test... after 2 months of playing I really like the control and the power that gives you when you play hard or soft. Amazing rubbers !

First time playing with this rubber, reminded me of Mark V but better. Good speed and control but excels in generating spin with the right technique. Prefer 2.00mm in black.

04/10/2022 A prefect overall rubber Review by utsav shaw
Quality
As this was the first time I was using a professional setup. I researched quite a bit on which rubber to get for my forehand. After much thought, I decided to go for Fastarc G-1. Given its high control rate. I am very satisfied with the performance of the rubber. Of course, when compared to MX-P(I used my friend's setup) the speed is a little slow but in compensation, you get better control and spin on looping and counter hits. I would highly recommend using this rubber if you are looking for an all-around rubber that gives you a professional feel without worrying about control.

Very heavy rubber. Less catapult, more control, very spinny. Hard feeling. One of the best rubbers.

21/09/2022 Needed 4 glue layers Review by S
Quality
First impressions were very bad, but I tried adding 2 more layers of glue and it made a huge difference. So if you get a dead feeling, these rubbers soak up a lot of glue when they are new.

After re-glueing: Medium-hard hardness and quite fast. Medium throw. Good spin in most shots, but does not try to maximize spin (like e.g. T05 or D09c) but rather gives a balance between spin sensitivity and offensive power. Will not be optimal if you like soft, spinny shots. Power loops are fast and with enough spin to put pressure. I use these on both sides on my Acoustic CI and on my Acoustic, but I feel the G-1 are a bit better with a wooden blade. The combo carbon blade+G-1 creates a long arch and requires a good touch.
19/09/2022 Reliable Review by Jon Gustavson

I use this in it’s thinnest version. It comes off the racket more directly than sticky rubber. On a defensive blade, it has fantastic control. I could imagine this rubber being good for all types of players and styles of play. Nothing really unusual about it - just very reliable and easy to adjust to.

31/08/2022 Best Non Chinese Rubber Review by Debashish Mitra
Quality
The Nittaku Fastarc G-1 is the best non-Chinese rubber in terms of spin, speed, control, value, durability - with the Tibhar Evolution MX-P a close second overall in terms of spin, speed and value (that one has more speed but is a bit more reactive to incoming spin requiring active blocking for slow spinny incoming loops). The Nittaku Fastarc G-1 is very unreactive to incoming spin making it great to return the slow spinny loops with flat blocking i.e. without the need of active forward wrist movement - where with other rubbers like Tenergy, MX-P, the ball would fly off the table unless it is an active block (i.e. having the quick forward wrist movement) even with a closed bat angle due to those rubbers reacting to the incoming spin. I like this way better than Tenergy, Dignics. This is very linear and you can produce good spin with proper action. The durability is better than the Butterfly or Evolution MX-P rubbers - only Chinese rubbers and possibly Xiom rubbers are comparable in durability. This is the best value and overall best non Chinese rubber by far for me. Over the table short play - great, opening backspin - good, power loops - very good, blocking - fantastic, mid distance play - very good, durability - possibly the best amongst non Chinese rubbers.

10/08/2022 1st Class in Grippiness Review by Lester Tabada
Quality
So far one of the best Japanese rubber I've tried. Great rubber. Its a hard rubber but with a really grippy surface. Note that this is not a tacky rubber, but its grippy. This one don't have the catapult effect like the Tenergy and Dignics series but this is a fast, controllable and grippy rubber. I came across this rubber because Mima Ito primarily use this on her dreaded BH game; flat hits, aggressive attacking style and tricky service game. And after using this rubber, I did have a considerable improvement of my game. There is a getting used to stage coming off the Tenergy 05 and Xiom Vega rubbers, and I think the rubber need to be broken in to unleash its full potential. Don't give up on this just because it comes out dull or slow at first.
The rubber is perfect for looping with its grippy surface, FH drives are sweet & fast depending on your level. Flat hits, of course its overkill man. G-1 rubber helped me a lot with service game. Hope to have more good times with this rubber.

04/07/2022 Classically great Review by Víctor Jiménez
Quality
I have tried some rubber trying to find the ideal one for my backhand, on this occasion, I wanted to try the Nittaku G-1 for its comments and recommendations, I can conclude that it has all the control you require in the backhand, excellent rotation, I like its controlled speed, it has a very rich sound in the strong blows, I will continue to use it, although if the comments are true, it must last me long, I won't have the pretext of wear and tear to change...

02/07/2022 Suitable for both FH and BH Review by Shrisan
Quality
I tried Fastarc G1 on FH after using Vega Pro on Primorac Off, this feels similar but without the catapult of Vega pro. The character of the Blade comes more clearly with G1. I need a couple of weeks to adapt to this more linear rubber. It's certainly worth trying for anyone trying to improve their own game. I feel it should work well with BH too.

16/05/2022 Good rubber with weird feeling and poor quality Review by Cristian
Quality
The rubber is spinny and fast when doing a proper stroke, on touch shots the hard topsheet makes it feel really stiff and strange. On stronger shots, it feels soft.

The main issue is the quality of the rubber, not only the superthick was heavier than the max but the edges of the rubbers keep disintegrating, and they started doing this from day one. There are always small bits of rubber left on the table during a session.

I would say this performance is very close to T05 at half of the price. The speed and pace on the ball beat many other rubbers I've used previously. It can be used on FH and BH. I would prefer FH. Mima is also using it as her FH weapon.

31/03/2022 Top notch, if it only was a bit faster out of the box Review by lcddi
Quality
Who tried it, knows. Great rubber, an evergreen quality in the sea of TT rubber sheets. And Xiom Zetro Quad has a special kind of effect on it, making it an immense spin monster. Tenergy 05 is normally a bit above in spin, but not on this blade. It is possible to produce a spin comparable to Chinese-style rubbers and it just needs a stroke to aim for more spin than speed; it definitely doesn't require a full brush stroke (which is something a naturally bouncier blade-like ZQ isn't good for). It is easier to produce good amounts of spin with T05, but it can't match the overall spin capability of G-1. G-1 also surely prevails with its relative insensitivity to spin and the low level of bounciness. It does require more effort to achieve good speed; also, to generate spin, you have to make more effort, but on the other hand, this fact helps when you need to play quickly and directly without spin - flicks, drives, smashes, blocks.
18/03/2022 Classic modern tensor Review by Alexander Dickens
Quality
Switched over to this after playing with the P-1 for two years, and the gears are immediately apparent. The ball just snaps off the rubber and drops quickly, unlike the softer P-1 which has a lower, longer arc. Might have even been too good for me, but adjusted my game accordingly. Good for fast strokes, and excellent on the backhand punches although it requires slightly more force and accuracy for the backhand loop.

One of the top rubbers of the modern game, but you may want a thinner one on the backhand.

This rubber has a grippy topsheet so great spin (although not in the same league as something like Hurricane 3), but has more speed like tensor rubbers. It is slower than Tibhar MX-P Hard / Tenergy 05 that I have used before but it has a lot more control than those two rubbers.

Quality
This rubber has a durable top sheet and good spin and speed qualities. Not as fast as T05 or MXP and more linear without a strong catapult effect. More suitable for blocking and short game than T05 and easier to play. I would highly recommend it. Just pair it with some hinoki top plywood to get extra bounciness if you like that feeling.

20/09/2021 European Style Review by Onur Kaplan
Quality
Even after reading a lot of comments about the linear arc of this rubber, I was still surprised about it. After using sticky Chinese rubbers for a time, I needed to adjust my game for both forehand and backhand. Surprisingly, I found this rubber perfect for my BH, FH still needs some time to get used to it.
Best: Perfect for passive blocks.
Worst: I can't gain short serve points as I did before with Chinese rubbers like H3.
16/09/2021 Maybe the best forehand rubber ever? Review by Marco
Quality
There's a reason this has been the number 1 selling rubber in Japan since before the dawn of time: It's brilliant! High spin (about the same as T05), easy to control (less catapult than T05), and lasts forever. For me, this is the best forehand rubber of its class (ie. rubbers around 47.5 degrees, and with a normal thickness topsheet). I can't understand why anyone would pay more than double the price for the 'other' Japanese rubber of similar spec! Note: I am not as impressed with it as a backhand rubber.

I have used this rubber for a few years now. It has a tenergy-05 kinda feel to it. Very spinny in the short game and more than enough oomph for smashes. There is a reason it's one of the most popular rubbers in Japan. The rubber has lasted well over a year of consistent club/league play and I am replacing it only because I managed to bang it against the table corner and punch holes in it.
Service and delivery from tabletennis11 is consistently superb - as I have come to expect over the years anyway :)

Other than the weight, it's perfect. Just three grams lighter per sheet would have been pleasant. Nonetheless, will purchase again as needed. The best property of the rubber sheet for me is that the throw of the ball is consistent in height both on drives and smashes. With other rubber sheets more smashes go in the net. Here, no problem. Using ZJ szlc blade, and Photino blade also. Thanks, TableTennis11!

02/03/2021 Excellent T05 alternative Review by Stanislav Demchenko
Quality
I have been using this rubber for almost 2 years and absolutely love it. It's cheaper than T05, lasts much longer, and has a very similar spin, speed, and arc. I use max thickness on Nittaku Acoustic (OFF) when playing offensively close to the table. Middle thickness works very well on DEF blades (Donic Defplay etc) when I fancy playing as a middle zone defender.
Comparing to other Fastarc rubbers, I also like C-1 for BH. It feels a bit slower but catchier. It adds stability to my backhand and helps me with the backhand flick. As to, P-1 and S-1, I feel like they are OK for less competitive play, but I don't use them in tournaments.
Overall, after discovering G-1, I stopped experimenting with offensive rubbers.
For FH, G-1 is my rubber of choice.
For BH, I am split between G-1 and C-1.

This rubber is great! Very easy to control, has a lot of spin and can loop everything with ease. The grip and ability to pick up low balls with this rubber are quite amazing. Flatter and more direct slap shots/ aggressive drives/ smashes are also quite powerful. Feels similar to Rakza 7 but has more spin, more speed, and a higher throw angle. Works well on forehand and backhand. There is a reason this rubber is the most popular rubber sold by TT11 at the moment.

This rubber is very close to Tenergy 05 in terms of spin but it is better than T05 in blocking and flat hitting. To me, this is the most durable rubber and I have tried at least 15 different brands of rubbers before. It seems that the black Fastarc G-1 is stickier and lighter than the red one.

G-1 and C-1 are great rubbers. I used both on FH. They play slightly differently but I can switch from one to the other effortlessly. What strikes me is the amount of spin they can generate. Must accelerate the paddle well to get the full benefit. Both are very durable and cheap!
p.s. I name TT11 as "best TT shop of 2020, 2019, and 2018!"

15/12/2020 slower than mx-p Review by Ardak Mirzakhmedov
Quality
A quality rubber. It has good spin and control. It is softer and slower than MX-P and goldarc8. Arcs of MX-P and goldarc8 are more straight compared to G-1. I bought this rubber also for my friends. A friend who plays with off+ carbons blade says that G-1 is excellent. A friend who plays with defensive blade Victas Koji says that this is weird and too slow rubber, he didn't like it.
Some people are saying that it is better than Tenergy, but I don't agree. Tenergy is much better. For me, even Xiom Vega Japan is better than G-1.

23/11/2020 Good attacking rubber Review by Dusan Pejanovic
Quality
I switch rubbers very often, my quest is finding slow and spinny rubber with good control, and this is very close. High arc, good spin-spin, and not very sensitive to incoming rotation. No more tenergy and Dignics for me.
Stalno sam u potrazi za sporijom, spinastom gumom sa dobrom kontrolom. Ovo je veoma blizu. Visok luk, dobar spin i nije osetljiva na dolaznu rotaciju. Posle t05 i d05, sve sto je islo preko, sad ide na stol

Накладки Nittaku Fastarc G-1 имеют очень хороший зацеп, топшит достаточно плотный, на основании
Nittaku Septear накладка толщиной 2.0 мм. не ощущается излишне
жёсткой , наверное из-за мягкого kiso hinoki, для вращения просто идеальный вариант, можно задавать дугу разной высоты, очень хорошо контролировать мяч на блоке, в короткой игре всё предсказуемо , без неконтролируемых выбросов, для атакующего стиля хорошо подходит как на бэкхенд ,так и на форхенд.Собранным комплект остался очень доволен.

All round to offensive options. Great intro tensor that works for Pros to the beginner. Insensitive to spin. Easy to create spin with the ABS ball. Easy to counter, push, block and open up. Best BH rubber I have had the pleasure to play with. Not as wicked fast as T05 but enough for 97% of your attacks.

11/09/2020 Interesting rubber Review by Ruslan Gunko
Quality
Using it with Donic Defplay Senso V3 for forehand and it gives interesting effect and very useful for the super spinny begging of attack and very surprise opponents during counterattacks. However, you need time to understand the effect of it in the beginning as the trajectory really different, especially after the Tenergy. I'm super satisfied with it and bought one more.
04/09/2020 Best rubber outside of dignics Review by Hoang Vu
Quality
in my opinion, this is one of the best rubber available. I think the Dignics series carry a little bit more spin and speed, but they are also twice as expensive.
Fastarc G-1 offers little catapult which makes the feeling very linear and easy to control. The top sheet is weirdly not very spin sensitive which helps with the serve receive or blocking. Looping is great with tons of spin, and if you hit hard enough, there is a nice clicking sound.
The feeling is similar to MX-S but not as hard, slightly faster, and higher throw angle. some of the comment said MX-S might offer more spin, but based on my experience with both, I don't think there is a big difference, might even be the same. MX-S might be better at short ball since its harder and more "dead" compared to G-1.

05/08/2020 Excellent both for FH and BH Review by Stanislav Demchenko
Quality
I play close to the table with a lot of topspin and less with direct hits. I love this rubber just as much as T05. I have been playing with G-1 for the past 6 months. I can notice a small difference only in direct comparison, e.g. by looping for a few minutes with G-1 and immediately after that with T05. But if I try one day G-1 and another day T05, there is zero difference to me. Absolutely the same throw angle, the same reliability in looping or blocking when playing against attack or defense. Besides, G-1 is at least as durable as T05.

01/08/2020 great rubber Review by Andrei
Quality
The Fastarc G1 - I haven't played previously with, and given its almost legendary status in Asia and Japan in particular, where it remains among top best selling rubbers for years, I expected a lot from it.
Nittaku rubber chart shows it as having the highest spin value and being just off the top speed. I come with the thickest sponge of 2mm. As I was intending it for BH, that removed my doubts as to whether to choose max or 2mm. The density of the sponge is good at 47.5 and I presume the rubber will feel even better with a 50-degree sponge. Excellent grip on the ball regardless if the sponge is engaged or not. Creates sufficient speed, power, and spin whether driving or brushing, while maintaining fairly high control. Compared to Rakza Z on the other side of Darker Synergy + blade, G1 has slightly less spin, but much more speed. The rubber surface developed a dark dot under pressing forefinger within 3 sessions. Otherwise, rubber appears very durable

Good for FH and Bh, I use it on OFF blade, and I'm very satisfied with good control if you have good technique you can get enough speed.
21/07/2020 exc Review by tcheesen
Quality
Fastarc G-1 is my best FH rubber compared to the many European/Japanese tensor rubbers that I have used (barracuda, Omega Asia, Rakza 7, zack) over the years. The drive is the most powerful feature of this rubber, from near and mid-distance, with a strong ball bounce at the opponent side, excellent trajectory enabled by the higher throw angle, and a nice clicking sound when hitting the ball. The other two positives features of this rubber are blocking and serving (able to generate strong spin). The rubber works very well in both my all-wood blade and 5+2 carbon blade. It is no wonder this rubber is the current choice of the top 2 Japanese female players and a male Japanese national player.
(P.S. The one rubber that I have yet to try for comparison with G1 is the MX-P).
17/07/2020 Superb Review by Zachariah Flowers
Quality
One key-point of this rubber is man must using 2-3 layers of glue for the first time. With one layer, the rubber feels very hard, dead, and not spiny. The max sponge is only 2.0mm might be the reason for this.
After enough gluing by good quality glue, it feels like a Hurricane 3 with 70% speed of Ternegy 05. All shots refuse to be out of the table.
Quality control is superb as usual.

Looping not as good as Hurricane but very powerful direct punching hit, Very direct return, lasting longer, short touch returns easily go high.
09/07/2020 Faster MX-S Review by Hoang Vu
Quality
A faster MX-S rubber, with similar spin and maybe better grip. Very linear and easy to control/block as the sponge is not bouncy like Rakza 7.
The sponge is 37.5 hardness which is not very hard in the modern era, however, the rubber doesn't feel soft and if you swing hard you can get the best out of the rubber easily not like Hurricane3, which makes this rubber very easy to use.
On top of that, this rubber is not spin sensitive (don't know why), so blocking and serve to receive is slightly easier.
Such easy to use rubber but still deliver top-notch performance, no wonder Mima Ito uses it on her forehand, and this rubber is also a long time #1 best-selling rubber in Japan. I tried to find other rubbers that can replace this but still ended up coming back to this one. maybe only butterfly Dignics has better spin but the price is too expensive. I would take this rubber over Tenergy for sure.

I've been using C-1 (max) on forehand for over a year and loved it, but the rubber is getting old, based on so many great reviews, I decided to try G-1 (black-max). At first, I thought I've made a big mistake, it's too bouncy, too fast and couldn't control the ball compare to C-1 (of course C-1 is a slower rubber) but I stuck with it and after a few weeks, once the rubber has broken-in, I got used to the speed, wow... the control is much better and the spin is amazing. I can place the ball anywhere on the table with a ton of spin, much more than C-1. I play close to the table. IMHO, all rubbers are good if you get used to them, but G-1 definitely will be my forehand rubber for a while.

23/04/2020 Drum roll please.... ta da!! G-1 Review by Mark Elert
Quality
I like having the option of creating problems for my opponents by having two different kinds of rubbers (on DHS 301 blade). Hurricane 8 mid-hard on FH, and G-1 on bh. But - I am now convinced if I could only have one kind on both sides, I'd pick G-1, and here's why... Take T-05, keep the spin, reduce the insane sensitivity to opponent's spin by 70%, lose the just past the end down-the-line bh unforced error, add easy, low short receives, add shorter serves, and a big spoon-full of control and (wha-la!)...you have G1. More ideal for close-mid than mid-deep play. Works great for both wings.

I use this rubber for my forehand. It helps me greatly with my loops and it produces lots of spins. I think it soft enough for me to feel the ball.
16/04/2020 Top quality! Review by Goran Stevanovic
Quality
I have been using G-1 2.0 since 2015 and I am very pleased. Even dissatisfied. Initially, I used G-1 on the backhand side, and on the forehand side of Tenergy 05. The blade is Timo Boll ALC ST 83g. My backhand was progressing very quickly, but I was still not happy with the forehand. Soon I put the G-1 on the forehand side too and made no mistake. The feeling is amazing. Everything is better with the G-1 than with the Tenergy 05. Now I manage to do everything I imagine. No limit. All you have to do is make the whole and proper movement. Everything else will be done by G-1, do not doubt it. The G-1 has a very strong grip, very powerful spin and very good ball speed control. Regardless of the strength of your kick, if you hit the ball properly, it will definitely fall on the table. Tenergy can't do that, also a Hurricane, which is too slow without busting. I also tried the Nittaku C-1 and P-1. They are not as good as the G-1. The C1 has a slightly less powerful spin than the G-1 and is a bit slower. P1 is not slower than G1, but I feel that the top shit is a little softer, so the spin is less powerful, which is why the ball sometimes: 1. doesn't switch the net, or 2. switches the table. Hurrican also has this under-controlled network switch, and Tenergy also has under-controlled full-table switching. The G-1 does not have these problems.
The G-1 is very long-lasting and also has no competition in that feature.
And in comparison price vs quality G-1 is the best.
Lastly, I wish everyone good health.
Take care of yourself and others.
And until we beat the CORONA virus, STAY AT HOME, please!

I use the G-1 rubber on FH and it is incredible! The amount of spin that I am able to produce is mindblowing. My strongest side is definitely my serves, and this rubber does a great at increasing the spin on my serve. I usually serve tomahawk BH or FH. I get more spin on BH tomahawk with mantra s but often win on serving FH with the G-1 too. If you are an offensive midrange player, then this will suit your playing style nicely. I love it and would recommend it as well!

Quality
For reference, I'm not USATT rated but my usual teammates have been telling me that I play around 1800. I have been playing with the Yasaka Extra Offensive Power 7 + the Rakza 7 for BH and FH (all from the excellent TT11 service).
I used the Fastarc G-1 on FH with the Tibhar Samsonov Force Pro and it was excellent: faster than the Rakza 7, bouncier and also I felt a bit less control. I also believe the Rakza 7 has more spin, but it might be related to the fact that it has more dwell time, in the sense that you can really feel the ball penetrating the rubber.
All in all, excellent rubber, I feel I need to play more with it to get used to it and adjust my strokes.
Thank you TT11 for the fast and excellent service, always at the best price!

I use this as my forehand rubber (and twiddle, since I play long pips on my backhand). I use it to chop, block, loop and hit. With a 1.4mm version of this rubber, I can do all those things to my satisfaction. Chops are very controllable and loaded with underspin. Blocks are also low and controllable. Due to the hardness of the rubber, hitting feels crisp and direct, and while loops (with this thin a sponge) aren't going to be Ma Long-level, I can still get plenty of spin and speed when I need to.

22/04/2019 Excellent rubber at a reasonable price Review by LD USATT Rating 9001
Quality
This rubber serves as a very stable high performance rubber in contrast to some of the modern tensor rubbers available on the market today which can change in playing characteristics in a relatively short period of time. In my experience, near daily usage for approximately 3 hours a day the topsheet and sponge provides a consistent experience for about a month. This includes multiball with some particularly dirty balls and not necessarily the most meticulous cleaning regimen. For a modern offensive game there's no particular field that this rubber is deficient in. If there's any nitpick then one could say the sponge is on the softer side lending to the rubber bottoming out more easily than others on flat shots or smashes. Whether looping at mid to long range or driving the ball close to the table, the rubber has a very linear feel compared to other rubbers in this class and is easy to understand from the get go.

In comparison to other popular rubbers, it feels more inert than Tenergy which allows for easier short-short play. It still does maintain a springing feel with a lot of incoming energy being conserved which make emergency shots and short strokes easier to perform than with Hurricane3. As alluded to earlier, G1 sponge tends to maintain it's characteristics longer than Tibhar Evolution rubbers such as MX-P or EL-P.

Having gone through several sheets of G1, one oddity to note would be that the topsheet for red and black sheets do not have the same surface feeling. A rough description would be that the red topsheet feels a bit more "plasticky" while the black topsheet feels more pliable. This doesn't seem to affect the ball characteristics too much in normal play, but it's divergent enough to be able to determine which sheet I'm touching in a blindfolded test.

Overall, G1 is an excellent rubber for players looking to develop a consistent attacking game and doesn't have any apparent deficiencies. I would call it a jack of all trades, but that would be doing the rubber a disservice as it performs on the same level of pretty much anything else on the

I use this on my BH and love it. Good speed, grip and control. Love the high throw angle because my BH is a more flatter shot. So the margin of error is higher.

Quality
I switched from Hammond and Hammond Pro Alpha and have been VERY pleased with both G-1 and C-1 Fastarc. I use the G-1 on the backhand and the C-1 on the forehand. The sponge on the C-1 is a bit softer and results in a tad more spin. G-1 is still excellent for looping but is also fantastic for quick, flat, pick hitting, which is my backhand game. I have enough wrist on my backhand loop to still generate a lot of spin but have the flexibility to pick hit with it as well. C-1 I need on my forehand to help me generate more spin. Both are fantastic and seem to last well.

12/02/2019 One of the best in Business Review by Kartik Anbalagan
Quality
This rubber is similar to Tibhar MX-P. No great difference. Low throw than Tibhar MX-P. Control is good. Speed is good for putting away winners. Block depends on blade, but low throw can cause you to fall inside your net.
I would rate it 9/10. No change after playing for 1 month, so I think it is durable.

08/01/2019 Best forehand rubber for developing technique! Review by Javier Martinez de Navascues
Quality
This is an excellent rubber for those intermediate players who want to improve their forehand repertoire. It sacrifices a bit of speed to gain control and as an off player I can say this rubber has made me improve all forehand strikes.
Recommended!
03/12/2018 Good Control Review by Jisthi Hassim
Quality
The feels just like Tenergy. Good for offensive play. Speed and spin is superb. Can control the game smashes and top spins. Once you get the grip of the rubber, it's just perfect. Just as the name says, it is fast and has a high arc. Can vary with just amount of spin and push.
12/11/2018 good for me so far Review by Vladimir Shastin

Totally agree with:

"Conclusion
Great rubber for intermediate to advance level players who want something like T05 but less speed more control and is useful for developing technique (particularly loops)"

One of the best rubbers in the market last a long time. Excellent spin, very good on plastic balls, not heavy; suits forehand and backhand and not bouncy as Tenergy. Higher throw then MXP and Bluefire better then new Aurus Rasanter and Joola.

21/07/2018 Excellent rubber Review by Pranot Mahabaley
Quality
I have pasted it on XVT ZL KOTO.
I have used Omega IV PRO and Rakza 7 with Carbo 7.6 in the past.
Hence I am comparing Fastarc G1 with these rubbers.
Throw angle of Fastarc is better than these 2 rubbers. Provides good clearance over the net.
Lifting underspin is easier.
Spin in slightly better Rakza 7.
Hardness is same as Rakza 7.
Control is very good.
5% slower than Omega IV PRO.
In short Rakza 7 + better throw angle + better grip = Fastarc G1.
It is only a week since i have started using hence cannot comment on durability.
Overall very very good rubber.
Just go for it.
Thank you TableTennis11.com :)

23/05/2018 Good spin, decent speed Review by Mark Hendricks
Quality
This rubber has high spin for a good arc and decent speed, however not as fast as the evolution MX-P that I use on my other side. It is overall a decent rubber however I had a lot of trouble dealing with incoming spin on my backhand because it reacts VERY strongly to spin. Backspins became much more difficult to lift.
23/05/2018 Great FH Rubber Review by Two H's
Quality
Solid feeling and control. Gives a very predictable and consistent feedback to the user. Well adapted to offensive topspin play style. Durability is also a strong point. Generally will end up replacing once a month playing around 15 hours a week. Have noticed that the top sheet for the red rubbers have notably less grip compared to the black sheets.

Поиграв несколькими тензорами, решил, что наверное это не моё. Мешала катапульта. Так и думал, пока не попробовал эту накладку. Очень контрольная катапульта, цепкий топшит, вариативна (можно использовать как справа, так и слева, у меня в основном слева), маловосприимчива к приходящему вращению, легко контролировать скорость, линейна и предсказуема. В общем, очень много плюсов. Менять буду наверное только на неё.

Love this rubber. I'm using Black Super Thick 2.0 on a Nittaku C-SZ. It has good grip for lifting. Not very spin sensitive. Excellent touch for the short game. Enough power away from the table. I'm simply landing more good quality shots on the table than ever before with it.
05/03/2018 Good quality for low price Review by Brian US Rating ~2000
Quality
The rubber is now my preferred forehand rubber. I've tried hurricane/skyline, tenergys, MXP, rakza, and some other popular rubbers, but this one is considerably cheaper (especially if on sale) and has the best qualities from all the rubbers mentioned above. It has a pretty tacky topsheet (less than hurricane, but definitely more than tenergy), powerful sponge (harder than rakza, softer than hurricane, similar to tenergy), and lasts around the same time as most tensors. It allows great spin when needed as you can feel the topsheet clicking with the ball and also shoots the ball out with great speed; it's really like a hurricane topsheet with a tenergy sponge. Great for both loops drives and softer spin loops. Smashing can also be performed with good technique. When the rubber gets too old, it still feels grippy when you touch it, but when playing the ball tends to slip a lot more and loses the spinniness it once had. I would recommend it to people with developed technique because it provides enough power/spin if you stroke the ball correctly and performs well in every field. You can't really blame this rubber if you miss because it does everything it should: lifts underspin, allows topspin loop drive, spin loops, pushes with good spin, short game is fine, flips are easy, serve receive is easy (much easier than tenergy imo), every ball clicks into the rubber/topsheet easily, etc. Overall a great offensive rubber that performs as it should and really allows you to swing into your loops because of its tackiness and springy sponge. Really love the price and quality! Can be a bit brittle around the edges and loses grip after a couple months, but it's still playable after this and shouldn't be thrown away. Boost it after it gets old and slap it on a spare paddle and it still plays pretty well.
22/01/2018 Nittaku rocks the tensor rubber department! Review by Vance Taggart
Quality
Samson Dubina recommended this rubber and I am pleased that I seriously considered his suggestion and bought the G-1 red and black rubbers in Max sponge. Plenty of tack to brush the ball back to your opponent, even from off the table and low. The grip is just insane. Love it! Spin is top notch. This rubber is also loaded with speed. When max sponge is activated, your opponent had better be fast to respond to your attack due to the immense speed created with this rubber, especially if you're using a carbon blade in combination with the G-1's. If you have a forehand rubber that you would rather use instead of the black G-1, please note that the red G-1 is stellar as a backhand rubber. I contend that the G-1 red is a better backhand rubber than the Tenergy 05. It has the same spongey feeling but there is just more to the feel of it than the T05. Personally, I will keep a blade with G-1's on both sides and another blade with Nittaku's (DHS) Hurricane 3 on FH with G-1 red on BH. All bases covered. One cannot go wrong.

Fast, spinny rubber with an acceptable short game. Performs most shots well. A little too hard and high throw for my backhand but great for the forehand.

02/01/2017 Nice offensive FH Rubber Review by Richard Levy
Quality
This was an upgrade on the FH side of my Xiom Vega Tour from Omega IV Elite. I was looking for more speed and spin, and this rubber delivered on both counts. It has a relatively firm sponge, but the rubber grips well and loops and drives were easy to execute. A good shot is accompanied by a nice click.
07/10/2016 Decent Review by CroneOne

Pretty nice rubber actually. It seems less springy than say T05 or M1. Maybe the sponge is harder. If you brush the ball finely it will be loaded with spin. It's also quite fast for flat hits or fast loops. Used on a carbon blade.

This is a phenomenal offensive backhand rubber.
I also durable.
I recommend!
For forehand I personally prefer Tenergy 05 or Tenergy 05 fx.
Use not much haevy and too hard blade (approximately 85 grams).
A good choice is Timo Boll ALC, Joola Markovic (the new name is Rosskopf Emotion), or for example in my opinion unjustly neglected Joola Sheik (75 grams).
Enjoy!

12/11/2015 superb Forehand rubber !! Review by Aditya Nand
Quality
The best forehand rubber I have tried out of the following : rasant powergrip , rasant, tibhar aurus, yasaka rising dragon, xiom omega 4 pro, xiom omega 5 tour, tibhar 1qxd, h3neo, skyline tg2 neo
fastarc G1 incorporates the best qualities of the above rubbers :
1. tackiness like 1qxd (this helps a lot over the table short game, server receives, pushes, lifting underspin balls in a controlled manner without overshooting edge of table, sidespin-hook topspins)
2. spin/grip like rasant power grip (provides great spin when brushing looping as well as when you engage the sponge in close/mid/far distance game)
3. med-hard sponge like aurus (not too hard, but not also medium like rasant... this allows you to start engaging the sponge relatively closer to the table, without fear of ball overshooting due to high throw of rubber, or ball rushing to the net due to med-low throw...... the med-hard sponge also ensure adequate power from all usual playing distances)
4. med-high throw angle like rasant (helps in clearing the net easliy from close/mid .... )
5. blocking is also good like xiom rubbers .. no issue in this aspect
From the look, feel, and daily playing experience, it seems pretty durable as well !! Totally satisfied !! Highly recommended !! I m using it as FH on DHS long 5 blade, with Fastarc C-1 on BH. Great combination.

In the last 10 years, i have played vom Butterfly sriver, over Butterfly Bryce an Ternergy. But now, this rubber is greatfull in quality, control, spin and speed. I use it in super thick on my forehand on a Joola Chen Wexing blade. The service, chop, and 1st ball are so controlled with so much spin, that i can open the game with a very good topsin. I have played the first rubber over 4 month and he is actually Ok. Butterfly Tenergy was over 7 weeks very weak.

My top spin far away from the table has always been low and it lands at the net frequently. with this rubber, the ball is now landing on the table more often. the throw angle is fantastic, and spin is great and the speed is just right.
27/05/2014 Great Rubber Review by rob
Quality
Tried this as an alternative to Tenergy 05 (which I beleive has a much inflated price). It has a better short game than T05 and there is less of a "bounce" feel, so you get the feeling of more control. I found that it doesn't generate quite as much spin on very thin contacts but is just as good on thicker contact loops.
In all I think I prefer it (though T05 is still a great rubber) and use it both backhand and forehand on my Nittaku Violin.
So... if you want to try a fast and spinney rubber thats not as pricey as T05, give this a try and you won't be dissapoined.
