Previously used it on both side on Stiga Rosewood NTC VII penhold blade. Bad for forehand and ok backhand rpb.
For forehand, totally lack speed but spin is ok.
For backhand rpb, speed and spin is ok.
The only really good thing about this rubber is it light weight.

Typical Butterfly packing with paper protection over rubber. Not classy like Xiom but ok. Rubber has soft sponge which is light orange and pink in color, relatively porous. Overall rubber has a very light and grippy feel to it.
Spin and speed:
Well ok… no much to be honest here. This rubber, in my opinion, is made for recreational player or very beginner in TT. As far as I know it goes with some Butterfly premade paddles. Don’t get me wrong please you can still play with this rubber but for example I would consider Palio CJ 8000 much more serious rubber then Flextra. There is some spin and speed still. Grip on the top sheet is very good.
Who should use this:
If you want to get your kid into TT then you can put this on his or hers paddle, if you play once per month you can put it on your paddle… I think you get the picture here.
Have fun and enjoy TT.

This rubber is absolutely useless, and any beginner will be better of looking elsewhere in my opinion.. I bought this as my first rubber, and it did not help me develop my technique at all, even though I was playing decent strokes, this rubber failed me. 2 months later I switched to another one, and my game took like 3 leaps forward.. For goodness sake don't buy this rubber.

As part of my first pre-made setup with BTY Primorac Off- this worked well back in 2006. Paired with the Primorac Off- blade this rubber had great control. Spin was acceptable, but speed is in line with the ratings - very slow. It's great if you're looking for something that's low-ish throw, light, some spin (potentially with thin sponge) and can be used fairly defensively. As per existing ratings/reviews it IS "basic", "for beginners" and "new players". Alternatively, it would suit someone looking for a (middle of the road) cheap and defensive/AR Butterfly rubber. I also agree with kiantat's comments that it could work well as a slow RPB due to it's softness/lightness.
