 External Review for Butterfly Raystorm on March 1, 2019
I used this rubber for around 8 years on a singly-ply hinoki J-pen. It's the rubber I learned to play short pips with. I have moved on to other pips, but looking back, I couldn't have chosen a better rubber for learning the style. It has all the gears you need for a well-rounded offensive game, and it isn't blindingly fast like the new generation of high-tension pips. It can do all the essentials like hitting, blocking, and counter hitting, and it stands out from other short pips for its capacity to generate spin. One thing I miss about Raystorm (and that I haven't found with any other product) is the touch. This rubber is very responsive and if you have good touch, you will really appreciate it. Unfortunately, with the new poly ball, this rubber feels a little bit too slow... but otherwise, I recommend it highly!

Very good rubber, spin, blocking and smash. I use in the back hand, very easy to restore the heavy ball and top spin from the opponent. Suitable for use on hard wood ex. Tamca 5000 series. My recommendation is using wood butterfly Garadya Tamca 5000. Thanks

nice surprise... I thought, it will be too similar to inverted rubber, but it is not the case. It reminds me to stiga clippa...raystorm is a bit faster and more aggressive, but control is still pretty high...even in max thickness. SP rubber with perfect feeling in attack, it pushes me to a next level...

The problem with review is that we usually prefer to write review abouut the equipment we succed in using it. I played on bc with stiga all around wrb and tibhar aurus sound on fc (the latter is awesome combbination)
Buut on bc it was a disaster. It is a pimple for professionals not for time to time players. So if you go for European Chamionship gor for it if you play as I do not in the main stream of professional players forgetit. In another wordd good pimple for Timo Boll if he would like to change for a short pimple. It was 2.1 buy the way or sth like it bcause Iam still in shock. Great for play 3 meters away from the table.

 External Review for Butterfly Raystorm on January 6, 2014
First time using Short Pips. Used 1.9 mm on forehand, while researching sounded like a perfect match for me, after using I found that it was indeed a perfect match for 60% of my playing style. Great control, speed, spin (coming from inverted background), great for flat hits, spiny serves, push close to the table. The remaining 40% of my style was looping which I was unable to do using my old style, throw angle is very low. Someone had mentioned on their review that it is possible to loop with this rubber however one would need to re-learn how to loop, I did figure out the technique to loop while practicing with robot, but I did not want to change my style, this new technique used too much muscle. Have ordered Solcion, will see how that works. Using a Off+ carbon blade.

Switched to this rubber from inverted on my FH and jumped up from low 2100 to 2200. Did a lot of research to find a pips out that had a high spin rating, and this rubber didn't disappoint. As with a lot of players however eventually got a little bored and have tried some other short pips such as Flarestorm, Flarestorm 2, and TSP Spin Pips 21. Rating went back down to low 2100 level. Will probably go back to this rubber, but may try just a couple more hoping to find that magic short pips.

Mine is 2.1mm and Black.
Very fast rubber, soft sponge, and surprisingly very spiny.
Ideal for hitting, even through spin with the proper technique.
Has some gears, but you have to be very flexible with your wrist and watch out for the angle of the blade and height of the ball.

 External Review for Butterfly Raystorm on March 1, 2009
The butterfly raystorm is a soft short pips rubber, it is very good for hitting and you can place the ball quite accurate, it is a good rubber for close to table play but further away it is more difficult. The rubber is pretty fast and the control is very very good and makes blocking easy, the looping with this rubber is decent to very good. Chopping is ok It can do the job for sure,
This rubber can be used on FH our BH and is best fit for allround to offensive blades
Nice short pips rubber from butterfly
