I played a bit with it and against it. This gives a diffirent type of spin then t05, lower throw with the same amount of spin. Serves and short game are better. Countering is too diffirent to compare. The only Butterfly rubber i saw on sale lol

Very little spin and very slow. Control is not special. After you got used to this relict, you will notice that it is just not viable anymore for modern table tennis. I thought I could try tacky rubbers when purchasing this, but compared to Hurricane 3 I realised it is just a relict and cannot be compared to modern rubbers.

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.
