Reviews of Butterfly Rozena (46)
I put this rubber on the backhand side of my Timo Boll ALC and it instantly became my favorite backhand rubber. I have a strong backhand topspin and flick and this rubber was able to execute those shots with ease and good quality. The slightly softer sponge compared to Tenergy really helps get that extra dwell time you need on backhand shots. The slightly reduced speed also was a good thing for me because it allowed me to hit strongly on my backhand without worrying about over hitting. The ball just sinks into the rubber and shoot off just how I want it too. For people who are looking to try Tenergy 05-FX or find Tenergy too fast on the backhand, this is the rubber for you. And the price point is just right for my budget.
I was using it on both sides. For forehand, I can feel the insufficiency of control when balls didn't hit the blade center. Also it's throw angle is too low, I can't even make a steady forehand loop against heavy down spins. Btw my previous rubber was Vega pro. For backhand, it truly reliable, provides accurate blocks and loops. This is a good rubber considering the price and good on the back hand. But I strongly not recommend to put this on your forehand if you are an aggressive player and would like to make a stable and powerful loop
Before the Covid-19, I changed a Rozena max on my Taksim ALC CPH blade as FH. I liked it much more than my previous rubbers: Xiom OME 7 Europe, Victas 15 stiff, Cornilleau Target Pro 43. The pros are : Very users friendly and comfortable for handling all kinds of shots; serves, block, short play, loops & hitting compared to the other rubbers. It is not a Tenergy but costs half the price and you get 85% of the Tenergy's values. As the players advance in skills, it is obvious to move into Tenergy rubbers. (This must be a Butterfly marketing plan ) Overall, Rozena is an excellent rubber for mid to advanced level (not Pro.) players, (Most of the people are in these groups).
P.S. Since I did not play for many months, I felt the speed was lower. So I re-glued the rubber and no problem now!
Very nice rubber overall. Very bouncy, yet controllable and safe to use. I use this as my backhand rubber and it has worked wonders for me. The only thing I would change would be to have it a bit more tacky, but that's just my preference. Go and buy it, you won't regret it.
9.4/10 for OFF style. FH: Butterfly Rozena, 2.1mm, 46g (0.225g/cm^2), 35 degrees (Shore A). BH: TSP Ventus Spin, 2.2mm, 45g (0.221g/cm^2), 40 degrees (ESN), 33.5 degrees (Shore A). Blade: Andro Treiber Z, 88g, 157mm x 150mm x 6.7mm (Width x Height x Thickness). Plies: 7 (5 Wood + 2 Composite): Hinoki - ZLC - Ayous - Kiri - Ayous - ZLC - Hinoki.
Oooh, this is an interesting rubber. Tried this on Stiga Infinity VPS V. For sure, it is quite similar to T05. Feels very bouncy which makes smashes and pushes amazing. Offensive blocking on bh, wow! At the same time, you have decent control. The dwell time is low so looping from down low and againt backspin is hard. The rubber is fast, even away from the table, spin is ok but with the right execution can be good. I feel like it's the best for playing close to the table with direct shots and counterplay. Serves and short game is average. So overall, good rubber with a nice feel, for sure one of the best before you go to the next level (T05 etc.)
Good learners rubber. Great for coaches to teach with and practice with. It has average spin for this era and not much control either. This seems to be the leftover bad parts of the Tenergy series that didnt make the Grade A cut and has 30% less spin and 20% less speed at a $25/30 off of tenergy. Buy a different rubber or do tenergg if you are going to do butterfly rubbers.
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.
