Reviews of Butterfly Tackiness Drive (22)

Nice rubber for control. Blocks great. Yes indeed, does lack that uumpf when sometimes you need it so therefore It is better on backhand, where as something like a sriver would fair better on forehand.
However it does perform well close to table blocking. I have 1.5mm. tried chopping, but find it harder to chop as lacks bite.

Serving with this works wonders, especially with thicker sponge... which isn't a problem since you can go to max thickness and it'll still feel lacking in speed. This is basically the only real problem I've got with this rubber. You'll need to be able to bring the power yourself. If you don't have the skill to transfer power from the legs and waist into your swing, then you better be good at placing the fast balls at unexpected spots or they won't hurt. In addition to this, it's also a very crappy rubber to smash with. Grab a sriver for the above and you'll have much easier time.

Still, it's a great rubber for spin. Good spin on serves and during really with low skill. Slow but sick spin with a high skill level.

Receiving serves has never been a problem for me with this rubber. Control was basically all I could wish for no matter the thickness of the sponge.

Blocking is heavenly with this rubber and I play opponents that hit their drives like smashes. No problem returning this while even reducing some of the pace as long as you're in place.

It's a shame the quallity of the rubber don't last for more than half a year or so, as where my sriver and tackiness C easily lasted longer than a year.

Basically I'd only recomment this piece of art to defence and allround type of players that can generate a lot of own power and also go more for spin than speed.

I would never recommend this to a new player. It can seem like a great pick, probably lets you jump a level at that point but it's likely to create a flawed technique unless you got a good coach that has enough time to correct and assist you every step of the way... which is rather rare.

Ps. I played this on two off-type blades for a few years.

Chose this rubber based on sentiment after coming back back to play after loooong break. What was good for 30 years ago play is not always good for modern play. Keeps its merits, but in my opinion it is to passive for todays all-round play. Decent control and spin, but lacks dynamics. Seems bit outdated, rather for beginner seeking BH stability, with good block and underspin. Weak at dynamic BH play (average looping abilities).

Not only for beginners. I play it on my backhand on an off ALC blade. Great for service and blocking with good placement. So much control. Playing slow topspins is really easy. The rubber feels hard enough for the blocking game. Not mushy.
