Description of Butterfly Solcion

The Thrill of the Rally

SOLCION is the softest of the Butterfly High Tension racket coverings. "The Thrill of the Rally". It is at the heart of table tennis. It is sheer enjoyment. The High Tension technology of SOLCION gives the same feeling for the ball and the same sound as if speed glue has been used. If you require good control in your High Tension rubber, the answer is SOLCION

20-degree sponge

Reviews of the Butterfly Solcion

Review tonovector said this on May 2, 2008:

Solcion feels like lightly glued Sriver FX. The soft sponge and high throw make it easy to loop and control block. Serves and pushes also come out very spinny. The high tension gives it pretty good speed on the loops, also.
I use it unglued on a Darker 5P-2A, and it's great for a close to the table or mid distance all-round looping game. The only drawbacks are in flat hitting and play far from the table. People who want to stop gluing and don't need the speed or power of Bryce Speed may want to give this one a try, especially on the BH.
Review riker71 said this on September 18, 2008:

I got this after much deliberation as to whether it was worth changing from EL, a cheap, good quality rubber. I wasn't disappointed. This rubber is wonderful for controlled attack and defense, has great spin and a nice "crack" when you hit the ball. My BH has a new dimension, better control and spin because the soft sponge works well to rebound the ball on counter loops and blocks but with fantastic control which allows for perfect placement. Short game is also very good which is something that can't be said of other glue effect rubbers. I may even start using this on FH in 2.1 as even with the 1.9 loops were very spinny and pretty fast - 2.1 would give that little bit of extra power that I use on FH for smashing. Butterflys description for this rubber is spot on. It is a little expensive but in my view is worth every penny. Using 1.9mm on BH of Jonyer H.
Review gekogark1212 said this on January 23, 2009:

A buttery soft sponge that gives great dwell on every ball. The spin is really quite surprising and the topsheet offers a very good bite. Speed is not its strength, but I wouldn't dare to call it slow.

Very forgiving rubber. Nice clicking sound, glue effect is minimal, but the rubber is VERY linear. You get what you put in, as opposed to other soft sponged Butterfly offerings, like the Sriver FX.
Review jaredg said this on January 31, 2009:

I like this rubber because of few reasons, namely: it is durable, fast with lots of spin and speed. I use it for my backhand on my Timo Boll Spirit which has helped me to improve my backhand a lot, it is 2.1 mm.

While it is good for blocking, lob, or service but it is good for attacking. I wouldn't use for my forehand as I like Tenergy 64/OR Tenergy 05 for forehand.I think Solcion is one of the best rubber made by Butterfly even though the price is a bit high but if you really want to improve your backhand then go for this rubber.
Review jeff_attc said this on March 12, 2009:

Solcion is a very linear rubber; you get what you put into it. Makes a nice click when looping. Good rubber for looping and blocking. Not so good for smashing. Sponge is soft and absorbs the ball and gives you lots of dwell time. Topsheet is soft too. Short game is good. Prefer this rubber on the FH.
Review JonathanJ said this on August 15, 2009:

Very very soft for good control :)

It's supposed to be slightly faster and spinnier than Sriver and the softest and easiest to control of all the Butterfly High Tension rubbers. It is supposed to be good for all shots -- from chopping and blocking to smashing and looping.

Have not had for very long. I'll update my review as I use it.
Review andytu said this on January 13, 2010:

It's good high tension rubber from Butterfly, slow enough to be controllable, easily getting start to, but there is a defect though, you need a very skillful hands to cut the rubber off because of the soft surface, or the border with looks in earnest ugly, recommendable for BH
Review vkvkvk said this on March 8, 2010:

Very good rubber! Linear feel and high control. You can't be wrong if you choose this rubber. If compare with Donic Jo Silver, Solcion win for soft touch and placement, I can put the ball on deadly position easily, thus make the game much more fun. Best combine with offensive carbon blade, so you can get as many gears as you want.
Review harrison88 said this on March 10, 2010:

My playing style is modern defensive. I chop on backhand and loop/chop on forehand.

I tried this rubber for a few weeks.

I had it in 1.7 thickness.

Lightweight, easy to loop with close to table
Opening loop against backspin is easy.

Cons: too soft bottoms out on long distance,
feels kinda "mushy" for short game pushes and chops.
Hard to get good spin on serves.
Long distance chops were not good.
Blocking was only average.

Yes this is a good rubber, I just feel like tenergy64 outdoes it in almost every aspect except weight.

If you do get this I would recommend MAX thickiness due to the soft sponge.
I can see a double wing looper liking this on their backhand possibly.

Also someone might like this on a harder blade...
Keep in mind I tried this on a soft flexible defensive blade. (matsusheta pro)
Review TT Wang said this on June 5, 2010:

Very good control and less bouncy then the Tenergy 05. Throw angle is high which is good for countering underspin. Good for attacking qand very good in defending. Prefer this to T05.
Review jmluat said this on September 6, 2010:

Wow, this is Butterfly's highest rated Tensor rubber in the control category. And this is for good reason, placement with this rubber is spot on. The speed seems a little bit lacking and is probably about as fast or slightly faster than the original Sriver. the softness of the sponge makes for a really nice clicking sound when looping and counter looping. The only downside to this rubber is the that it is pretty delicate so try to take care of it the best you can by proper cleaning and storing when not in use. It seems to last okay, even after using it during robot drills, multiball training, coaching and club play. I have gone from using Sriver and Sriver EL to DHS hurricane 2 and 3 to Tenergy 05 and have found a good controllable rubber that is not too fast and not too slow. If your game is tuned to winning points through the rally, then Solcion may be right for you. I wouldn't recommend using it for close to the table play.

@jmluat, this rubber is not a tensor. its just a high tension rubber.

for me, this one is good for BH, amazing controll..
Review golandaz_mi said this on January 31, 2014:

Very nice rubber feel. Certainly forgiving. Due to high dwell time I get crazy underspins which my opponents were not able to loop. Great for close to the table and mid distance. Did not try far distance as I thought it will not be as good due to rubber being too soft. Not very good for smash, but I only smash maybe once or twice in a game, so it you are not a smasher then this will be a great pick.
Review GenElectric said this on June 15, 2014:

I have used this rubber at a 2.1 thickness on stiga all round classic. Great overall performance, lacks power due to softness but provides excellent control. , it's almost impossible to make a mistake with this rubber if you are using the Correct strokes. A high price to pay for a easy to play rubber that's great for beginners. If price is lower I would recommend every beginners to use it. Lacks power for attack and performs well for chop, block and lobs. Recommended for defensive players on the forehand. It should work better on a fast hard blade so it would Compensate for the speed
Review Amigo said this on August 31, 2014:

Good overall rubber for all-round play.


Very soft rubber, one of the softest BTW rubbers around. Sponge is light with some kick in it. Top sheet looks grippy and it has no tack what so ever. Rubber does not weigh a lot (measured in hand only), and it comes nicely packed as most BTW rubbers.


Very good close to the table. You can deform sponge with ease producing mad rotation. Openers or slow spinney loops are very effective. If you back away from the table then at higher speeds ball penetrates too much so you can lose some spin.


Not a very bouncy rubber, speed from normal distance 1-2m is ok and ok only. Openers can be very fast if you can swing that hard. Far from the table one can notice significant drop in speed... Rubber will be loud also at harder swings. At the higher level of play it gets sort of hard to out nuke your opponent from distance.


Recommended to control players at all levels, well maybe not for higher levels. If you like to outlast your opponents then give this rubber a go, but if you are more of a physical player then it may be better to go for something else. Price, as with all BTW products, is an issue. There are a lot of rubber at 15$ which play very similar to this rubber so€¦

Best of all felaz and enjoy TT.
