Very problematic rubber. Speedy, but nothing close to chinese rubbers. Very uncontrollable in comparison to Hurricane 3 or Tenergy 64 on Butterfly Joo Se Hyuk blade. Very few gears. There is absolutely nothing it does better than H3, therefore it has almost no good characteristics borrowed from Tenergy. Neither loops or chops are satisfactory. Only blocks were slightly acceptable, but still very few control and mostly only long trajectory. Balls are easy to receive by the opponent. Like the rubber is absorbing all the useful power you generate, and remains just fast pretty simple ball without room for variations. Footwork makes sense, but just up to the moment you place the ball on a table. Trying to increase the power results in lots of misses regardless of the stroke preparation quality. In other words the efforts are not worth.
Maybe it doesn't play on JSH, but still it's one of the worst rubbers I have ever dealt with. Also tried on Butterfly Korbel SK7 (and to play against) - without significant improvement over JSH. Moreover it's price makes overall impression even worse.
It is a speed and spin rubber, can be used in many different ways and speeds, it differs on the holder style. Smashing will give it a lot of speed, making it spin from a place lower than the table with low speed and lots of rotation, or more speed and just a bit less spin can make the ball fly if you do not have the experience to control it, but can be a very accurate if held by a experienced player. As a result the rubber sure is very good and I recommend to all people that like a speedy and full of spin game.
Hey! This is my review for Spin Art 1.9 BH and 2.1 FH, which I compared to the Andro Powergrip 1.9 BH and 2.1 FH.
Long story short, the Spin Art takes home the prize easily.
About Spin Art:
-The rubber is somewhat hard, but not really hard
-Insane directional spin
-The spin resulted in great control
Now I will compare the Spin Art to the Andro Powergrip by naming which one is better in each particular category.
Spin Art (mostly because the spin)
Both aren't great for defense, but they work.
Spin Art = Harder than Andro Powergrip
Andro Powergrip = Softer than Spin Art
About the same when new, but the tackiness effect on the Spin Art lasted longer and was slightly more noticeable over time.
? - I have not worn out the Spin Art yet, but the tackiness effect seems to last a little bit longer. The Andro Powergrip lasted 2-3 months of 6 hours a week (48 hours to 72 hours of play time, about).
That's all! Overall, I choose the Spin Art as a preferable rubber for an offensive or modern defensive player that knows what they are doing. I don't recommend either of the rubbers for beginners or those just becoming intermediates.
COMBINATION OF Tenergy 05 + DHS Neo Hurricane 3. it has a TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF POWER!! Deadly Attacker, suitable for hard hitters...Attacks like a Super Croc! ZUPERRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrr.....
Like h3neo married springsponge. And thats a good thing! Takes some time to get used to. Very very nice!
This is an absolutely amazing rubber from Butterfly. Having tried most of the high-end rubbers available on the market, Spin-Art demolishes Tenergy in almost all aspects of the game. Let me break it down for you:
Speed: You need FOOTWORK to unleash the monster. Tenergy may be more forgiving (because of the softer sponge), but with this rubber you need to bend your knees and transfer energy from lower body to upper body. Better technique = better results. Amazing speed on all loops, flicks, and smashes.
Spin: A bit less than its tacky Chinese counterparts (think DHS Hurricane or Tackifire C), but still, very impressive. Serves are a breeze (especially sidespin serves like pendulum, reverse pendulum, tomahawk, etc.) Third ball attacks can be very spinny, your opponent will have a hard time blocking your loops. But again, FOOTWORK is important! Same with pushes, very spinny, lots of backspin.
Control: Simply amazing for such a fast/spinny rubber. Pushes are easy to control, chops work well, very few unforced errors on loops.
Disclaimer: I use a black 2.1mm version on my forehand, on a Butterfly Millerga blade. My USTTA rating is ~2100.
Got this a few weeks ago (16/1/13), have had chance to play a few times now to give a review. using 2.1 Black on BH of Tibhar Stratus Powerwood. The rubber is heavier than the T80 I am using on the other side, 51 grams cut.
The rubber gives huge spin, particularly on pushes chops and serves, more than any other rubber I have used including Tenergy. Those who try to loop my chops and pushes really struggle even the technically better players are struggling to deal with the amount of backspin. Control is good and blocking is ok. Heavy topspin can be generated when needed on the backhand. Not as fast as Tenergy but was never designed to be. Sponge is hard. Good for allround game with great spin and control. For looping chop not quite as easy as with Xiom Omega IV Pro and lacking a little speed but this could be compensated for with a faster blade
