Review helpful?    Yes | No

a good rubber for forehand and backhand i used mark 5 on my forehand and bryce for backhand when the first time i hit a high shot it went very fast i ordered bryce speed FX when saw the review i think bryce is the best rubber of butterfly

I used this rubber to get more speed on the kill smashes with my FH. And for that it is great. My opponents wondered where the sudden acceleration from the ball came from. One even described it as "the ball exploded from your blade". Other than the great speed the rubber feels hard and heavy without too much control or spin. I've replaced it with a Bluefire M3 for more control and spin. But for raw speed you can't go wrong with this one.

By far the best rubber I've ever used, though I've never tried the newer Speed or Speed FX versions. I tried Tenergy 05 on a stiga graphite wood blade a few years ago and it was awful. Switched back to Bryce and the difference was immediate. I currently play with 1.9 Bryce on both FH and BH on a classic Stiga Super Carbon (Alser, 1980s) and it plays great - control with power as I need it.

The bryce its a good rubber u can do good chops with ur backhand and have a good loop to its just that its hard to raise the chops because the low throw angle
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Bryce was great with speedglue and that's it. the problem it holds is that it lacks the spin and power needed to win games. Using a Butterfly Viscaria light it does not work. the soft feel of the viscaria feel destroys the speed and makes a dead hitting sound. stay away from this rubber and get a tensor for the same price. the tensor may not be as durable, but you would ratehr have a rubber that would spin off the table than a durable rubber

this rubber is amazing.today i buy my bryce with my technique,but i use butterfly michael maze blade, in carbon blades bryce is very spinny and fast but have control a lot.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

I have never owned/used bryce, but from a receiver's perspective it is the fastest rubber i have played against when my opponent loops from mid-distance or when he blocks from close to table

Ahh good old Bryce. The #1 rubber in the speed-glue era, the true beast of power. With speed glue, this rubber is explosive in its power and versatility. However, I will conduct the remainder of my review on unglued Bryce.

Pros:
- Thick topsheet which prevents "bottoming out" when hitting hard or counterlooping far from the table
- Very stable for flat counter-hitting and smashes
- Hitting harder yields more power, while touch shots have a lot of control
- Blocking is effortless
Cons:
- The topsheet does not have a very high amount of grip (for example, compared to Sriver EL)
- Spin for serves are not as effective
- Flat trajectory, medium-low throw...sometimes difficult to counterloop or lift underspin
- Expensive...REALLY expensive for a pre-speed-glue ban rubber ($$$)
Recommendations:
- People who still want to use speed-glue: this is THE perfect rubber
- Counter-drivers, offensive players who want a stable backhand rubber (or a controllable, medium-hard FH)
- People who like to spend $$$ without sensible reason
Conclusion:
- Nothing really special without glue; a slightly upgraded version of the Sriver series
- There are so many better options out there for the same amount of money or less

It is an excellent rubber for agressive attackers. If you don't wanna play highly rotated top spins and prefer speed + power, you should try Bryce. On the other hand it's lifetime is really short what is really not good combined with the prize.
Review helpful?    Yes | No

THIS rubber sucks! very very much can lose control easily take it from me drives and power loops always go out of the table!
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Very nice rubber and super fast!!! missing that heavy spin that everybody loves but good enough the control is a bit lost during fast exchanges... But great if you are the only one attcking all in all... Very nice rubber

(borrrowed it from my traning partner for a few hours)....
Review helpful?    Yes | No

even without speed glue this is a very good rubber. good speed and excellent control if you combine it with a suitable blade. if you combine bryce with a soft blade it will give you the spin you need without any huge effort despite the rubber' s relatively low throw. if you find that the rubbers of the latest speed glue effect generation are too fast or lack linearity go for bryce. but take one thing into consideration: butterfly are gradually discontinuing this rubber, a pity...

after playing with Sriver for years, i changed to 729 Cream Transcend. For a brief period of time I played with Bryce. Its speed improvement is very noticeable but the control factor is too low. I would say if you are comfortable with Sriver then you do NOT need this rubber. Suitable for advanced players only as it requires very good technique to keep the ball on the table. this rubber gave me shot of the day but i lost the game.

some times fast, some times slow; sometimes spiny, some times no spin. It depends on the blade. Do not put this rubber on a stiff blade, it will be terrible; it will not have spin, but extreme quick bounce. Bryce is good with butterfly blades or medium to soft blades of the other brands.

The good:
For the established player, it adds the speed you have been looking for. (especially on FH and BH loops and loop drives)
The Bad:
It is not very cheap. Bryce is GREATLY affected by your opponents spin. If you have a weakness on recognizing spin during your opponents service, then this weakness will be magnified and exploited very easily. Adding spin can be fairly difficult with Bryce because it is not very tacky.

Overall, If you have your basic strokes down (fh and bh loops, drives, and chops) and you feel that you need to add more speed to your game, then Bryce is probably the answer for you.

got timo boll tri carbon bryce on bh bryce speed fh feel pretty much the same speed has a better snapping sound but love the combo great rubber
Review helpful?    Yes | No

Plays like Sriver but faster with more spin. Surprising control for a fast rubber. Same low throw. Nice feeling for the ball. Expensive but should last longer than average. If you like Sriver you will love Bryce. Relooping is very easy. Short game is good. Step it up! Counters are very fast with great directional stability. Not for beginners. 1.9mm for close table play, 2.1 for mid and away from table loopers and power smack downs.

if this rubber is untuned, it plays like a quite fast classical rubber, just a bit less spinny. if you tune it with lampoil, this baby becomes a weapon, incredibly fast, spinny and loud. however control suffers a lot from tuning, as it gets very bouncy and soft. my rating is for this rubber in untuned state though
Review helpful?    Yes | No

This is fast. If you can't get speed with this rubber you should consider changing your technique. Spin is hard to get, only goes well when your a few feet behind the table. Near the table it's hard to get really good spin. Serves, chops and short game can be done but is difficult to play with a lot of spin. Ball stays low though.

Even without speedglue you can consider to buy this rubber since it still does the thing.

This is an excellent rubber, It's one of the best blocking rubbers I know and its also great for driving and smashing. The short game is a little bit more difficult but you can get used to it by practise. Definitely not a rubber that I would recommend to beginners our loopers,
Its not a very good looping rubber, it has some but not enough, its realy a rubber for full attackers who like to play fast and hard with not to much control.
I would reccomend this rubber for FH only

Butterfly Bryce is a extremely fast rubber made for the most elite attackers. The rubber, in general, is extremely fast with some spin and not much control.

This rubber does require speed glue, so all this is assuming you speed glue.

The speed is literally great and uncontrollable. You need very good feeling in your arm to successfuly use this rubber. You do not want to use it if you are still a noob and still feeling out your strokes. The spin is average, but with good strokes, you can make sufficient spin, but the speed will ultimately make up for the lack of tackiness.

This rubber is great for any looper. You have to be careful though because it is not easy to use.

Bryce is a very effective rubber. It's ability to impart massive spin on a ball is incredible.Howerver it's sensitivity makes it easy for a rival spin to put your shot out of direction.All in all it is an outstanding rubber.

I've had a few different sheets of Bryce. in contrast to the FX version, I very much enjoyed using it.

I had one unglued on a Yasaka Gaiten Offensive. it wasn't reglued for nearly 4 years. it was still very, very quick and spinny, but the feel degraded to the point where I gave up and started speed gluing it.

another one went on my Schlager Carbon with speed glue, and stayed as my forehand for a long time until I tried smashing a ball, missed, and hit the corner of an aluminium-edged table. not a pretty ending.

overall a great rubber, but without speed glue and of late its been overshadowed completely.

I have this in combination with a Butterfly Boll Tricarbon blade, which is very fast to begin with. This combination is by far the fastest i have ever played with, yet has decent control. I find that the sponge on this rubber may be slightly too dense and i am going to try the FX next. I have been very happy, and if you have a soft or medium hardness blade, i reccomend this rubber greatly. It has a very nice feel, although it is a tad heavy. I also really enjoy the high tension technology from butterfly as itdoes give an extra kick to the ball.

Long lasting, low throw rubber for pure offense. Glue/tune it, or forget about it. Medium hardness rubber for pure offense, especially power looping. No glue effect, but the best in the market once glued. Spin is OK, and this rubber is not for novices, you will not be able to control it if you are. Although pretty expensive, the durability evens that out.
