a truly excellent orthodox rubber. a lot spinier than expected. also, it appears to be quite durable. works exceptionally well with the toni hold blade as a hardbat. maybe, because it is soft and provides long ball contacts. the ability to top spin with it is really welcome.
This is a good hardbat rubber. It is extremely slow without much spin. This is by design. It is meant for hardbat tournaments where sponge rubber is not allowed. This type of rubber cannot be used to hit very hard or very soft because you will lose control since there is very little dwell time: the ball bounces off quickly because there is no sponge to absorb the impact. It is best to use this with a defensive blade to get more dwell time. It is borderline impossible to win against a similar level player who uses inverted rubber because having more speed and spin is an advantage, but against another hardbat player it can be a lot of fun. And for once Butterfly is not charging an arm and a leg for it. Loop is certainly possible, but don't expect it to carry much spin. It will have a low trajectory.
