Hi all. I'm using 1.9 red.
This wonderfull pips has Very good controll. Blocks are very efective specialy when take early on the rise. U can play active "flat" block (producing fast quite and dead ball), chop-block (litle underspin to dead balls) and block with top rotation. Hits are consistent. If U try play with spin ball trajectory is unpredictable and oponents had issues to read it. Remember one thing using this excellent pips out rubber - its perfect when U play active with it.

I played competitively from 1970 to 1994, then left the game and returned in 2016 at age 64. I returned with long pips on backhand but didn't have much fun since I could not attack on my backhand consistently. Talked with a 2300 player who just switched his backhand to Butterfly Challenger Attack so I tried it. Fantastic control and I can flat hit or loop a little with my backhand. Challenger Attack is great at touch shots as well. I am an 1800 level senior who would like to find the best blade and rubber combination so I am interested in input on Impartial XS and Raystorm or another short pips rubber that would increase speed and have strong control. I use an ebenholz nct v table tennis blade with Tibhar MX-S max rubber on forehand. I was a strong forehand looper previously, but now it seems I flat kill most forehands. If anyone wants to email me Gary Whiddon gary@hpo.biz with input please do. I wonder if a different blade would be beneficial with the rubber. I am playing great now with Challenger Attack 1.9, but just wanting to improve. Thanks

Butterfly challenger has a good balance between attack and defence. For a short pip it has different gears. I play it as a defensive backhand rubber because it has a nice soft controllable touch. It's quite deceptive in giving spin to the ball depending on the hitting angle. Hitting and blocking goes easy. Playing it as an attacking rubber, that's in the name. ;) (challenger attack )

Challenger Attack is a very nice quality pips rubber. Great for service return, fast block, smash, and controlled loop. Medium fast speed. Works great for combi players with inverted on one side. Has a slight deceptive quality which is common for short pips. Pips are broad and soft. Highly recommended for players who used to use inverted on their BH and are seeking a bit of deception. Great for flicks, quick counters, and pushing close to table. A do all short pips rubber.

This SP rubber is good in everything: service return, block, counter attack, even spin. It has fair amount of deception in 1.5. Control is just fantastic.

SLOW. One has to play next to the table and hit everything off the bounce. Look at Gao Jun if you are interested in this. If you have the same style as her then pick it up. If not, then buy a $10 friendship short-pips comparable to this or better yetm look elsewhere.

It is a very good short pips rubber. As a penhold player, challenger can give an excellent control to the loop. Good balance betwen defentive and offentive.
