Reviews of Butterfly Rozena (36)
The Butterfly Rozena rubber is a really forgiving, yet spinny and fast intermediate level rubber. While highly skilled players should probably opt for the Tenergy or Dignics series, the developing player that still has problems with reading spin and adjusting the racket angle, should definitely give the Rozena a try. I am using the Rozena on my backhand, which is why I dont review forehand techniques. I used this Rubber on a 92g heavy Nittaku Violin FL LG All+ blade.
Countering is easy going. The rubber is still speedy enough to not let the ball drop into the net. Blocking takes some adjustment, because it reacts much less to incoming spin. I sometimes have the problem that the ball slips on my racket, when blocking a diagonal ball down the line. This is really bothersome but can be adjusted to accordingly.
Topspins played with a thin contact, such as flicks and slow loops, dont benefit from the sponge as much. They are spinny, but not as spinny as they would be if the sponge was engaged properly. This means that the rubber has plenty spin from mid distance and at the table, if you drive loop the ball. In this regard the spin production is quite astonishing, considering the spinsensitivity or lack thereof. Topspins against backspin should be player engaging the sponge, to guarantee the clearance of the net.
The short game isnt the Rozenas strong suit. It is very safe. considering you do get away with bat angle inaccuracies without the ball popping up high. But the spin developed is subpar when compared to other rubbers. Again, you must engage the sponge to develop proper spin, so touching short whilst creating spin is hard, but long pushed should be alright with proper technique.
TL.DR: Perfect rubber for developing player. Low sensitivity to incoming spin, producing surprisingly much spin when engaging the sponge.
Good fast attacking rubber, it's extremely tolerable to miss hits and most of them still land on the table. I am currently using it on my backhand and it makes keeping pressure very easy.
I have no words to explain the feeling this rubber gives. I don't think this rubber should be compared to tenergy because it has its own category, it's softer than average hard rubbers, gives good control, feeling and spin, I found this rubber particularly good in combination with light soft blades and control blades, I believe there is where I felt the best of this rubber. I have used it in BH and FH and felt completelty good. The Buttefly page says that Rozena's main strenght is his forgiveness and I think that's right.
This rubber it only can be compared to Tenergy 05. It is a bit lower, but that give a lot of control, I would recommend this rubber for those players who have mastered the basics and need some upgrade but don't feel confortable enough or have the control to use a hard rubber.
I have been playing for only 2 years, so my review is that of a beginner. Specifically, I use them for forhand and backhand (2.1). I arrived at these rubbers recommended by an experienced player. High level of control. You can impress a lot of spin but I found the rubber too fast for me and now I switched to less "reactive".
I changed my FH rubber to Rozena red 2.1mm after having previously used Xiom Vega Pro and Omega 4 Pro. The reason for change is I had become increasingly BH dominant and BH dependent to score points....and my FH had become erratic and was losing its offensive edge! There is nothing wrong with Xiom rubbers! They are terrific! It was a psychological thing that I had to deal with and I was looking for a different rubber feel!
I put the Rozena on Nittaku Latika (shakehand). At the first session, I disliked the feeling! But then, I was looking for something different! From session 3 onwards, I started liking it.
The topsheet is grippy, does not slip even in humid weather and produces good amount of spin. It is not too soft nor hard. The rubber can lift backspin effectively, pushes, flips, blocks, drives, loops well. Hitting together with spinning the ball feels better than merely doing a pure flat hit. My FH confidence in both the short game and away from table, is being rebuilt. Bonus: correctly contacted, the rubber hisses off a nice "poof"! For me, an important feedback on the quality of my stroke. I suppose a different rubber feel plus attention to rehabilitating other aspects of technique all add into the equation! Thank you for reading!
Ratings for 1.9mm. Bouncy with a soft feel. It's easy to control aggressive loops with this and place the ball on the table unlike tenergy.
I believe the rubber is doing what it is supposed to do. But too fast for an casual player like me.
This wasn't a rubber I loved from the first hit. I initially thought it was just okay, and having most recently played with slower and spinnier rubbers (Hexer and Rakza X Soft), it took me some time to get used to it. After a while, I really like how versatile this rubber is. The spin isn't exceptional but easily sufficient, the sound is very nice, and it is much lighter than most modern rubbers. I also like the sponge hardness a lot as it seems to fill a gap in between the medium-soft rubbers (Rakza X Soft, Evolution FX-S) and medium-hard rubbers (Hexer), and it is precisely the hardness I am comfortable using both on the forehand and backhand.
I bought Rozena 1.7mm accidently, just to try it, from my friend and pair it with TSP Balsa 6.5.
I can say only good things for this rubber.
Now I play with Tibhar Stratus in 2.1mm and not planning to change combo.
Comparing to Tenergy series, for me is more like T05 but with harder topsheet and softer sponge.
It has lower spin and lower arc in openings-similar to T64, trajectory is shorter but speed is similar to T05.
Controle is much higher than with T05.
Uzeo sam gumu 1.7mm samo da je probam na TSP Balsa 6.5 drvcetu.
Veoma mi se svidela.
Sad sam je upario sa Tibhar Stratusom i debljinom 2.1mm i cak je jos bolja kombinacija..
Najslicnija mi je sa T05 samo sto ima tvrdju povrsinu i meksi sundjer.
U odnosu na T05, spin je slabiji, luk je nizi-kao kod T64 i malo je sporija ali ima mnogo vise kontrole sto se vidi u kontrama.. gotovo sve odradi sama..
Poprilicno dugo traje, igram 2x sedmicno vec 5 meseci i dalje vuce odlicno..
Nadam se da sam vam malo pomogao oko izbora..
I play with 2.1 mm sponge on Viscaria FL both sides FH and BH about 5 months. This is a cheaper,slower and better variant of T64. Rozena is really an amazing rubber. Everything from serving, to flicking serves, topspinning pushes and blocking it does well. This rubber plays according to player's skill and abilities. I'm very satisfied and impressed on the control and speed of the Rozena rubber. It's true that this rubber is very forgiving and you will be amazed on its performance.I like this rubber because it is considerably lighter (43 g).I think speed = T64 - 10%, spin = T05 - 10% and control = T80 +10% because have low sensitivity to incoming rotation.Rozena gives you a comfortable and easy game and is just as durable as the TENERGY.Excellent choice for players aspiring to the professional level.
Not super spinnny but a good middle ground with mid hard and mid flex rackets. Great when boosted and blocks like a beast and slippage is not common but can be hard to brush dwell that may be hard to bring it over to spin it back over versus just land it.
I just got my new Butterfly Yoshida Kaii Cpen blade from Japan 3 days ago and went to my local table tennis club (Greater Toronto Area) today to give it a try. I glued a new Rozena black rubber with 2.1 mm sponge for the fh side. I just used a Bty red ph sheet on the bh side since the blade is already heavy and I'm used to playing with a Jpen blade (Senkoh 1 w/ Tenergy 80 rubber) which has a lighter weight than this new Kaii blade. I'm very satisfied and impressed on the control and speed of the Rozena rubber that it took me only 30 mins to adust to my new blade/rubber combo. I definitely recommend this rubber especially for developing players. It's true that this rubber is very forgiving and you will be amazed on its performance. Cheers!
This is a downgrade version of Tenergy 05. The sponge is powerful even you exert a little power on your own. It is not very suitable for a very fast blade, the power & very high throw angle will make it hard to control if you are using a super fast carbon blade.
What a beautiful rubber!!! A wise old man at my club once mentioned to me to try Rozena. This was about 6 months back. Recently, I was in the market to buy a back up racket. Remembered the advice and ordered 1.9mm for the backhand. I could not be more pleased. Although, the set-up I chose differed from my previous one, I have never been in so much control with my backhand before Rozena. Be it flicks, drives, blocks, hits or low chops. This rubber has excelled in everything. For me, this one's a keeper. Have used it for about 4-5 weeks and am simply in love with it. Not only has this helped in increasing my shot efficiency by 20-30%, but has also helped in increasing my confidence in backhand. Just hope to continue to improve as I seem to have found the equipment that suits my game. [Blade Sanwei F3 Pro; FH: Sanwei Target National Max].
Really good rubber! Rozena is like a tenergy 05 but less spin. It is also cheaper, it has the same properties as tenergy 05.
I think that Rozena is a better rubber because when you hit the ball it gives the ball a high arc so it can go over the net safely and it is wayyyyyyyyyy cheaper than tenergy 05!
Speed: high, not as fast as Tenergy64 but very fast
Spin: moderate, far from Tenergy05 but on par with other modern rubbers.
Control: very high: not very spin sensitive, medium hard sponge and medium throw makes it very easy to play with.
Great rubber for backhand or developing FH, does everything well. At the current price is a very good deal
What a brilliant marketing move for Butterfly to introduce this new rubber. With Tenergy prices leaving the galaxy this is a pleasant surprise considering Rozena's performance for a wide range of players. It reminded me of T05fx with a bit less spin and a tic more control. Also like Xiom Vega Europe but with more speed. This rubber doesn't need to be forced into making any shot in the game as it plays smooth with no quirky gears like regular T05. Also plays like T64fx with slightly less speed. Mid level players will really like what this rubber offers at a decent price point. Not as spin sensitive as many tensor rubbers. Am playing Rozena on a BTY P. Korbel in 2.1. Really nice combo for looping and aggressive allround style. Noted the lack of any tackiness to the topsheet however it is grippy to produce high spin. I have a feeling this will be a winner for butterfly worldwide and should be around for many years to come. Medium high throw, good feel, plenty of speed and spin. Gives confidence with service returns. A really good horsey you will enjoy riding.
