My first impressions after three training sessions. So far I played a Vega Pro on the backhand all in all is this a very good rubber, but away from table for me to slow. This is the reason why I try the Rozena. I play it in red 1.9mm.
The conversion was no problem. I play it exclusively on the BH, accordingly also my rating. Serves: I have not tasted enough so far, to make a usable statement. Short game: is easy to play with this rubber. BH-loops: are great. Blocking: is very comfortable, both active and passive. In my opinion one of the best, perhaps the best, I tried so far for blocking. Chop: Excellent chop game, very well dosed / controllable. Flick: were easy to play and dangerous. Hard BH-strokes are easy to play also away from the table. The hardness is between T05 and T05 FX i think. The quality is as usual from Bty without complaint. The price is acceptable, 39.90 € would be enough ;-) . No money wasted, did what I wanted and stay on my blade. For my game a great BH-rubber. Play and have fun !

What a wonderful new rubber som Butterfly. Here are the pros.
-Easy to play
-Good forgiveness if you dont hit the ball 100% correct
Overall it was a good rubber to take over for my T05FX.
Have played T05FX in 1.9mm on a zlc blade for over 5years now.
This Rozena give me a lot of the same, and i feel a better feel and touch. And to a lower Price. Lovely.

Feels like a step down from tenergy rubbers, all around. That's not to say it is inferior, only that the traits and characteristics are less extreme. A bit less spin sensitive, a bit less speed, slightly less catapult etc. Still works wonderfully well on the amateur level and I believe even a few pros have swapped to Rozena. About $25 cheaper than tenergy as well!
I think in a blind play test, 95% of people wouldn't be able to tell the difference! And their score would probably go up, as rozena is easier to control... it's certainly made to compete with other rubbers in this price range (tibhar mx-p, donic bluefire, etc.). Butterfly probably wanted to get a foot in the door, instead of losing those customers with slightly lower budgets. At $50 a sheet, I think any player under 2500 (so essentially everyone on the amateur circuit) would be perfectly fine with it. Sure, you might like how X rubber feels or Y rubber bounces more, and that's okay. But on the objective level, Rozena sits right up there with the best and I foresee it being a perennial best seller.

It's more better controllable than T05 or T64. Strong spin and middle speed. I put this ROZENA on my Butterfly Primorac Carbon's forehand. Very good rubber for me that are not professional players.

la gomma somiglia nella parte esterna alla tenergy ma è piu' lenta . ha la piuma diversa non è morbida ma è piu' lenta.
il top è facile e ha molto giro ma ovviamente è peggiore nei block e nella schiacciata...
come la tenergy se tiri forte diventa veloce e ha molto effetto colla fresca.nel complesso la trovo una buona gomma ma mi aspettavo qualcosa di più , io la uso sul rovescio perché per me sul dritto non va bene non chiude dritto schiacciando e non riesco a chiudere il punto se non con il top.. sono i primi test forse abituandomi migliora ,
Inoltre mi aspettavo costasse anche un po' meno, in italia per ora il prezzo è 43- 45 euro e allora forse è meglio una Andro rasant Grip che si trova a 32-33 euro e non delude ...
The rubber has the top similar to the tenergy but the foam is much slower. The result is that he has great spin and very easy in the top spin ... but he is not good for me in block and crushing
...tenergy vs rozena is like Viscaria vs viscaria light ...(another rubber, another blade..) ah ah ah!
