Reviews of Butterfly Feint Long II (13)
Chopping is good, not the nastiest chops but enough to force mistakes... especially after chopping more than one topspin in a row it starts to shine. However the real hurt you can put on your opponent comes from the ability to also place the chops easily and consistent at the right spots.
On drives this pip is nothing to write home about. It doesn't produce anything special and your opponent won't be impressed with the horror that can be long pips. However you'll be able to place the ball where you please and smack a short high ball with easy as a change-up. Which is basically all you need if you are a chopper who rarely attacks with the long pip.
The pip is a bit faster than most I tried but it's not hurting the consistancy by much.
Flat hitting at awkward angle, sponge makes harder flat hitting, removed it
Good chopping, low throw and spins back to middle of table if chopped to long.
Mixed long pip/short pip feel, would recommend one or the other
Nonetheless, fun to play with and troll sometimes. Would not recommend to first timers that chop or play defensive
In comparison to other pips out there, I think this one is best for an all-around game, classic and modern defense. Many pros have used this successfully. There are better and cheaper pips for passive blocking games and people looking for "disruption."
PS: At first the rubber is really sensitive to spin and it's really hard to return a serve with much backspin for example but after you played with it for a couple of sessions the grip kinda wears off and the rubber becomes better. Kinda like a tacky backside rubber.
Overall a good disturbing rubber for close to table play with good controll and variation
It seems to have an effect on lower level players blocking their top spin drives at the table using the 90 angle even with 0.5 sponge. I put on my bbc all blade which is stiff and slow to give chop blocks which appear to just dip before the looper can loop over it. It generates enough spin for a loop! and it feels good at absorbing pace. Spin sensitive so better for the chop from far away and not for serve returns. Surprising results blocking at the table once again.
I had a friend who used this on his backhand really well. He was a chopper, and his chops with the Feint II were virtually impossible to loop back because of the spin.
If you want this kind of effect, try it out!
I highly recommend for any kind of players previously mentioned!
