I am satisfied with this blade. It fits a developing player because it is very controllable, not too soft or hard and because it encourages a good technique (-> you have to create some speed from your own). I tested this blade with the adidas p7 and that is a very good combo. I'm able to create a lot of spin and have good control. The dwell time is good and I didn't notice a lot of vibration.
The disadvantage is that it is not so fast.

I didn't like the bty ball. The ball looks very weird, almost transparent.
The ball is durable and cheap but I found the bounce completely different than the other balls in the league i.e. tibhar, xushoafa.
The sound is also curious, different than the other plastic ball.

I've tried 4 plastic balls (tibhar, xushoafa, joola and bty) and I found this the worst.

Pros
  • Tremendous spin
  • Durable
  • Control
Cons
  • Not the fastest
  • Bouncy on serves
The P7 is a great rubber. Massive spin but also easy to control. I like the fairly high arc which is IMO easier to control. For example I've tried the Airoc M which has a lower throw and I find it more difficult to control. The speed is okay but there are lots of better options on the market if you want a fast rubber. I use it on a OFF- blade but I think the P7 is better on a OFF or even OFF+ blade.
The rubber is also very durable. I have been playing with the P7 now for a year(4-5hrs/week) and okay, it doesn't have the unbelievable amount of spin of the first months but my opponents still struggle to block my spinny topspins. Serving requires some skill because the rubber is sometimes too bouncy.

I definitely recommend this rubber to those who have a spinny topspin but still want decent control.
The P7 is pretty pricey but that shouldn't hold you back because it lasts long.
