Butterfly Hybrid for the masses
Pros
  • Spin
  • Control
  • Blocking
  • Flat hits
  • Serve receives
  • Weight
  • Faster and easier to generate spin/speed than Chinese unboosted rubbers
Cons
  • Looping heavy underspin requires good footwork
  • Not suitable for players not used to non-bouncy rubbers
On a 7 ply Andro Timber 7 Off/S (limba-ayous), this is a very safe rubber for the vast majority of amateurs and hobbyists. Gives you plenty of spin and speed to finish off points, as well as rewards good technique.

The unique Butterfly Spring Sponge feel is there without the downsides of uncontrollable speed or high spin sensitivity. Perhaps more advanced players would find it too slow on wood blades and would need to pair with a Viscaria-like blade.

Also you would probably not like it if you've never tried harder linear rubbers (like H3, H8, Big Dipper, Gear Hyper etc). But it is easier to play with compared to those...
