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.
Comparing to Tenergy series, for me is more like T05 but with harder topsheet and softer sponge.
-Spin is T05 -10%,
-Speed is T05 -5%,
-Throw is lower than T05 and trajectory is shorter.
-Control is T05 +20% (you can do crazy chop-block like Koki Niwa easily and for blocking just place racket, rubber does everything rest all by itself).
Last a long time, even when it's half spent after 5months, 2x weekly, has a good spinny shots.
For me it's perfect rubber : ))
Uzeo sam gumu samo da je probam i od tad je ne skidam sa TSP Balsa 6.5 drvceta.
Najslicnija mi je sa T05 samo sto ima tvrdju povrsinu i meksi sundjer.
U odnosu na T05, spin je slabiji, malo je sporija i 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..
Mislim da necu vise experimentisati i uzimacu samo nju, nadam se da sam vam malo pomogao oko izbora : ))
After TSP I tried Tibhar Stratus, and paired it with T05, I got same feeling, maybe even better, with more power on spinny shots and same control while blocking.
A posle sam probao sa Stratusom i cak imam bolji osecaj za spin, dok blok ostaje perfektan.
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.
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.
