Rozena is a rubber that definetely gives you what it promises. Opposite of Tenergy rubbers Rozena makes avarage players stronger while making strongers weaker. What I mean is when you play against a player technically less advanced than you, you may wish for a little more speed or spin. However when playing against better players, you probably pray for BTY engineers for creating such a good rubber each time your ball finds its way to the opponents side. I believe Rozena is a good choice for intermediates to have fun with the game and to elevate a higher level.
I'm glad Butterfly didn't name this one as Tenergy XX so we can get it at an acceptable price. I changed for this after playing Tenergy 05 for a year and a half and I couldn't be more satisfied. I get the same speed, great spin, better control and the tolerance is no joke. I get more hits on the table than before where every little mistake meant a not so spinny topspin or a miss. Super rubber, top choice.
Although this rubber is often described as a jack of all trades and therefore boring, the Rozena is really an amazing rubber. What it shines at is dependability. Surely this is not something that sounds as sexy as high speed, high spin, high everything but its a remarkable feat nonetheless. Everything from serving, to flicking serves, topspinning pushes and blocking it does well. I think this allroundness can be credited to the slightly harder topsheet and the still firm sponge. Both make the rubber less sensitive to incoming spin while also providing the rubber with enough speed and dwell. The one thing I noticed however was that it is at times easy to overshoot the table on the 5th and 7th ball, but I believe this is due to my inexperience with the spring sponge and past play with short pips.
My friend just got this rubber recently (1.7mm Red) because he didn't want to get anything too crazy like the TEnergy Series since he is still developing his form, strokes, and overall sense of touch. I personally prefer this as a backhand rubber but it is still an OKAY option for forehand (I would choose TEn 05 on forehand or any chinese rubber).
My first impression after making contact with the ball,"...Butterfly definitely got this rubber right..."
It doesn't stand out in any sort of play characteristic except for its supreme consistency and sense of feel. I would love to have this rubber if I played shake hand (I play CPen Short Pips one sided only). This rubber plays according to the player's skill and abilities.
If you want a simple answer,"This is an above average rubber that I believe is more suited toward the backhand side for shakehand players (i'm not too sure about RPB for Penhold). If you want a quality backhand rubber to use as you're developing your 'style' and 'game', I heavily recommend this product."
Rozenna is Butterfly's answer to all the other "tenergy alternative" rubber's that have emerged over the past 3-4 years. I bought it directly from a butterfly vendor, and they described it as being just as fast as Tenergy 05 with less spin.
That is exactly what I've found after playing 20+ hours with the rubber. It's just as fast as T05, and is about half as spinny as 05. Less spin creates less of that classic medium/high throw angle that T05 has which took the most getting used to. I've had to change the way I hit the ball in order to produce similar spin my shots are used to getting.
If your game is more focused on counter hitting and flat hitting, then this is the rubber for you. If you're game is reliant on spin, stay away from this rubber.
Tried this rubber as both a B/H and F/H on my Pingmaster s/l carbon which had Omega V euro both sides.
Changed red omega to the rozena and played for about 2.5 hrs, twiddling the bat occasionally. Although the Roz is a good rubber and many people would like it (would compliment many playing styles) , it could not match the OVE in either speed or spin with the control being almost equal.The Xiom had a bit more grip, was slightly less bouncy
for pushes and service returns, and had a slight edge when it came to offensive play,the Roz being superior when I was forced to play passively or defend a loopdrive/ smash onslaught. So all in all the Rozena is a very solid rubber which can be used for both F/H and B/H, and may help you reduce some of those niggly WTF moments you have with some of the more top end tensors. Personally I have tended to opt for the slower more controlled blade option in coping with those uncooperative sheets as I am addicted to spin. Although cheaper than tenergy, Roz is still very expensive,especially when you can find a lot
of higher spec't current or slightly older tensors for $25-35 US dollars .Cheapest I've seen this is $44.95.
Very good rubber, I found it very similar to the tenergy 80 but I found it lucks of speed is the only thing i could be improve but the speed abd control are okey, its a good rubber for fast players that dont put lot of effects couse is the only week point in this rubber
A lot of people just look at this as Tenergy-lite but if you evaluate it on its own merits its a really excellent rubber for those looking for a balanced attack with good control and consistency, while still being dynamic with good spin and speed.
It has the same spring sponge as the Tenergy series, my best comparison being a slightly softer and more forgiving Tenergy 80. Its throw angle is similar to MX-P or just less than T80 on the Tenergy scale. It also has relatively good spin and speed being just a notch below the most aggressive attacking rubbers.
The other criticism Ive heard of this rubber is thats its jack of all trades, but a master of none. While it doesnt quite match the spin and looping ability of Tenergy 05 or speed of Tibhar MX-P, if your game is more than just pure looping and utilizes blocking, control, and placement (and you like Butterflys spring sponge) then this is an excellent rubber you should give serious consideration.
There's nothing you can't do with this rubber. It offers the dynamic attacking feel of Tenergy while being less spin sensitive and easier to use in the short game.
What a wonderful new rubber som Butterfly. Here are the pros.
-Easy to play
-Good forgiveness if you dont hit the ball 100% correct
Overall it was a good rubber to take over for my T05FX.
Have played T05FX in 1.9mm on a zlc blade for over 5years now.
This Rozena give me a lot of the same, and i feel a better feel and touch. And to a lower Price. Lovely.
Feels like a step down from tenergy rubbers, all around. That's not to say it is inferior, only that the traits and characteristics are less extreme. A bit less spin sensitive, a bit less speed, slightly less catapult etc. Still works wonderfully well on the amateur level and I believe even a few pros have swapped to Rozena. About $25 cheaper than tenergy as well!
I think in a blind play test, 95% of people wouldn't be able to tell the difference! And their score would probably go up, as rozena is easier to control... it's certainly made to compete with other rubbers in this price range (tibhar mx-p, donic bluefire, etc.). Butterfly probably wanted to get a foot in the door, instead of losing those customers with slightly lower budgets. At $50 a sheet, I think any player under 2500 (so essentially everyone on the amateur circuit) would be perfectly fine with it. Sure, you might like how X rubber feels or Y rubber bounces more, and that's okay. But on the objective level, Rozena sits right up there with the best and I foresee it being a perennial best seller.
It's more better controllable than T05 or T64. Strong spin and middle speed. I put this ROZENA on my Butterfly Primorac Carbon's forehand. Very good rubber for me that are not professional players.
la gomma somiglia nella parte esterna alla tenergy ma piu' lenta . ha la piuma diversa non morbida ma piu' lenta.
il top facile e ha molto giro ma ovviamente peggiore nei block e nella schiacciata...
come la tenergy se tiri forte diventa veloce e ha molto effetto colla fresca.nel complesso la trovo una buona gomma ma mi aspettavo qualcosa di pi , io la uso sul rovescio perch per me sul dritto non va bene non chiude dritto schiacciando e non riesco a chiudere il punto se non con il top.. sono i primi test forse abituandomi migliora ,
Inoltre mi aspettavo costasse anche un po' meno, in italia per ora il prezzo 43- 45 euro e allora forse meglio una Andro rasant Grip che si trova a 32-33 euro e non delude ...
The rubber has the top similar to the tenergy but the foam is much slower. The result is that he has great spin and very easy in the top spin ... but he is not good for me in block and crushing
...tenergy vs rozena is like Viscaria vs viscaria light ...(another rubber, another blade..) ah ah ah!
My first impressions after three training sessions. So far I played a Vega Pro on the backhand all in all is this a very good rubber, but away from table for me to slow. This is the reason why I try the Rozena. I play it in red 1.9mm.
The conversion was no problem. I play it exclusively on the BH, accordingly also my rating. Serves: I have not tasted enough so far, to make a usable statement. Short game: is easy to play with this rubber. BH-loops: are great. Blocking: is very comfortable, both active and passive. In my opinion one of the best, perhaps the best, I tried so far for blocking. Chop: Excellent chop game, very well dosed / controllable. Flick: were easy to play and dangerous. Hard BH-strokes are easy to play also away from the table. The hardness is between T05 and T05 FX i think. The quality is as usual from Bty without complaint. The price is acceptable, 39.90 would be enough .-) . No money wasted, did what I wanted and stay on my blade. For my game a great BH-rubber. Play and have fun !
