FYI: This is a review of Yasaka Mark V racket. If you are actually looking for the Mark V rubber, you can refer to this link.
It is a Swedish made Yasaka table tennis blade with Sweden Classic. They construct the blade with 5 ply wood with 1 ply of carbon. The area of the racket that contacting with the ball which is known as the sweet spot is very huge. You can have a fantastic feel when contacted the ball.

Some players that playing in our area have this Yasaka Mark V rackets. Thus, I borrowed the racket from them and do a test myself.
I can feel the racket is great. It can offer me the good control and the grip is very nice and comfortable. When I try to use multiball and testing on the spin, it can give me a very nice and fast spinny.
I almost can feel the ball go into the sponge and stay there for half a second. This gives me the time I need to spin the ball. I can have sufficient time to choose either make a topspin or sidespin with the ball. This is not something that other rubbers can offer you with. With the rubber, I can generate more spin when playing the game.
The sound is fantastic when I click the ball, I can hear a clear and crisp sound. The blade and rubber combination can generate a lot of speed and spin. I tried to play topspin with a higher trajectory and it still can go just nicely close to the end of the table.
After using this Yasaka Mark V racket for some time, all I can say is this is a great racket you can consider buying if you want a quality racket. You will be happy with the purchase of this racket.
You can buy this blade at Megaspin where the selling price is about $92.
