      In my journey up the divisions, I used to win many points with high spin loops that the opponent blocked long. However, once I reached the top division, which is a big jump in standard from Div Two, those guys aren't bothered by spin at all. They can block or re-loop any amount of spin I can put on the plastic ball. Granted, with T05 and MX-P if I hit the ball perfectly I can maybe catch them off guard with the spin to win a point, but it is much more rare. Points at this level are one by 1. Being more consistent and keeping it on the table longer 2. Placement to put the ball where they can't reach it or into the body 3. Spin one to get a higher ball back and flat hit it (much harder to return than a spinny loop). So if Rozena helps me achieve these three goals better than MX-P, it is probably a better rubber for me.

      These are my experiences based on playing in my particular local leagues, so it is opinion to further discussion and not fact ; )

      I'm just looking for a rubber for my weak BH that blocks, flicks, pushes and hits well but also puts enough pressure on oponent during blocking. topspin on BH is weak.

      I tried T64 2.1 but it's a little to fast for me.
      1st option is to go to 1.7mm
      other option is hammond pro beta.
      I was wondering if rozena would also be an good option?

      i play it on my backhand and its defo helped me improve it a bit. Plenty fast to put opponent under pressure with blocks, which is still my main use for the backhand, not very sensitive to incoming spin which helps and a decently high arc which i think helps with the opening topspin. Find yogi's review to be very accurate tbh.

      Yogi bear mentions it needsa stiff blade

      I play all wood 5 plyblades in all+ range. Currently testing andro temper tech all+, osp expert all+and an old surbek which is in between those 2 (my feeling). Not too many peoplewill know this blade (amazing feeling but quite small/short grip. I meanwhilehave 3 of these).
      The tempertech is thestiffest and blocks well but it is 70grams. If I combine with light rubbers, itgets too light (blade + Hammond PB + tenergy 05fx = 153grams). Maybe put dhstg2 of h3neo on it may add some grams…
      The OSP is good but haveonly played 2 times with it for 15 minutes. Very flexible.
      The surbek I have beenplaying with for years.

      I tried it on my friends Korbel blade. I liked it on the backhand. It had very very good spin and it even had good power far from the table. In fact, it was so good I bought one and will put it on my Timo Boll alc next month alongside JP01 Turbo on the forehand.

      What are some alternatives to Rozena? I'd assume rubbers in the line of Vega Pro, Rakza 7, etc, but aren't those considered alternatives to Tenergy whereas Rozena is a "step down"?

      Thinking about playing Rozena on both sides of a Korbel, but Im reading a lot of "mediocre" comments.

      I couldn't get what exactly you are asking for.

      For a T05 player Rozena would be mediocre, and for a beginner developing to intermediate it would be a step-up.
      If for someone Rozena is mediocre, all its substitute alternatives would be mediocre too.
      You have to define style, level, and equipment history.

      This is me. Been playing with a Yasaka Extra with Mark V for a few years now and looking to step-up. Have a Korbel and kind of undecided on rubbers.

      Rozena will be a step-up, but you may find this step-up too small.
      T05fx is a bigger step-up option.
      Later on you may change the blade with a faster one too, but after you get used to the new rubbers.

      I've played with Rozena for over a year. Prior to that, I used T05 and to me Rozena was a step-up in the sense that while keeping a lot of the good T05 things intact, it did so with additional confidence. As feelings go, Rozena and T05 felt clearly kin, but T05fx is a different thing altogether — and one I've tried, but failed even though really wanting trying, liking.
