      Butterfly Rozena Rubber Review

      Hey all,

      Here's our latest review on the highly anticipated Butterfly Rozena Rubber. This rubber uses Butterfly’s famous spring sponge high tension technology also used in the popular Tenergy series. The Rozena is not designed for Butterfly’s, traditional, elite player market. Instead Butterfly’s idea with the Rozena was to develop a rubber for less advanced players or for players who need greater forgiveness and less responsiveness in a rubber then say tenergy gives you.

      Watch our full video review below.

      For a more detailed review on the Rozena visit the TTD review Center.



      Have you, or do you use these rubbers? What do you think of them?

      I feel mostly the same about the rubber in my short time using it. Quite similar to JP03, with a slightly bouncier short game and a higher catapult in the top end. Hope the durability is better than JP03. The rubber is quite light too. I feel over all your highest quality shots maybe capped compared to a t05 or boosted h3, in terms of speed/spin marginally, but your low quality shots will be better to a much more noticeable degree. My training partner agrees on the receiving end of the hits. My out of position shots now get a serviceable amount of spin where they may not prior with say a-Xiom Euro DF or JP03. I am not a great player so I appreciate the help in the lower quality shots over the slight cap on the top end. I was very worried this would play too bouncy in the short game, but with use it is perfect. It really plays quite tame with pushes. All of this is based on a sample of 1 red sheet in 2.1 (max sponge size I believe for this rubber) on the BH of a 92gr Viscaria. I flipped the racket around against my robot and the FH loop arcs were noticeably lower than H3, even lower than H8. Could really feel the catapult on FH.

      Dan which Bluefire did you compare the Rozena to? Great review but the one I really want to see is Rasanter.

      I really appreciate the comparisons! And 15 minutes is a great length for a review imo.

      Also I have a table tennis crush on Tom. His technique is beautiful!

      Thanks once again

      Can someone compare rozena to 05fx?

      I see people comparing with tenergy 05 and sounds pretty much like 05fx.

      Maybe rozena is a 05fx with steroids

      IMO Rozena is different (which I'm happy about actually, don't like 05FX, at least on Apolonia blade with soft outer wood layers...), basically it's because the hardness of the Rozena sponge is muuuuuch closer to 05, than to 05FX, the difference actually IMO quite close to Butterfly specs of sponges of these rubbers: 05 - 36 degrees, Rozena - 35 degrees, 05FX - 32 degrees... Also the arc with Rozena is even more linear than 05, so this is another big difference with big arc of 05FX... So IMHO Rozena and 05FX don't have much in common, very different rubbers...

      Thanks for the review Dan

      i see that there's been no review for Butterfly SpinArt (that I'm using)... Its been available for a while and also been using the Spring Sponge technology and I think its a very under-rated rubber; the price range is similar to Rozena . I'd be happy to have your opinion on this one as well.

      yes I think she did, so did Ai FUKUHARA (FH). I'm using it for my BH... actually I'm trying a bit to play like LIU SW with BH. stay near the table, short stroke form. The rubber is very tacky, you don't need to use the full arm to put a lot of spin. with good wrist and timing you can get good power and spin. There is good control in block, or short game, and for BH serves its excellent.

      I've been playing with it two years ago. It's really nice. But over here it's more expensive. It's in Tenergy price range.
      But a review of it would certainly be welcome.

      But speaking of reviews, now back to the topic:

      Brilliant review, guys.
      Actually i feel a bit tempted to try it now.

      Hi Zaid, good question I should have mentioned this. We used the Bluefire M2 rubber in the comparison. Awesome the Rasanter review will be out soon Thanks for watching!

      Great question! You know, I think the Rozena is a great backhand rubber. I think the feel works well on the backhand, to block and punch well. It is easy to open against backspin to so I personally favour the Rozena on the backhand to the forehand side.

      We should have compared the Rozena to a Tenergy FX. The Tenergy FX rubbers are quite a bit softer than the Rozena and quite a bit different to one another as DragonOwen has mentioned.

      Absolutely brilliant review , I do agree with Suga and Takkyu that an Spinart review is not out there anywhere ...

      I myself have been playing with H8 on my forehand for a while and have been looking at other options ...

      Boosting a provincial H3 , Spinart , H3 Neo at 37 degrees ... etc..

      So if you can make it happen , it will be really good .... looks like TTD reviews are now becoming the gold standard in equipment review ... really liked the part where you compared it to other rubbers .. its gutsy !

      Boosting a provincial H3 , Spinart , H3 Neo at 37 degrees ... etc..

      So if you can make it happen , it will be really good .... looks like TTD reviews are now becoming the gold standard in equipment review ... really liked the part where you compared it to other rubbers .. its gutsy !
      I agree, I will look into Spinart, I have a friend who uses it, will have a chat with him.

      H8 on the forehand, nice! Great rubber! Yes I think comparing to other rubbers is really good as it helps users understand where the rubber sits. We have had a lot of requests to compare to other rubbers within the playing footage, so we thought we better crack on with it!

      Glad you like the review TTMonster!

      Seems to me after following all the reviews that the Rozena might be a safe choice for the backhand side. What i am curious to know, is that how it compares to the Tenergy 64-FX.
      Thanks for the review Dan.
