Description of Butterfly Sriver EL
The best mix of power with control
Sriver is by far the most popular rubber covering used by table tennis players of all kinds from Champions to beginners. The most recent addition to the SRIVER range was SRIVER FX (flexible). Sriver with a soft sponge underneath. Now we are launching a new member of the SRIVER family, SRIVER EL (elastic) with a mid-soft elastic sponge that has been specially selected so far for only some of out leading world ranked players. Do you like a hard sponge? Or, do you prefer a soft one? If you like a hard sponge, then you can choose the "normal" SRIVER. If you prefer a soft one, then SRIVER FX is ideal for your play. But if your requirement is in between the two and this is where most of the top players are placed, then we recommend the new SRIVER EL. EL's mid-soft sponge gives the best mix of power with control.
Also known as Butterfly Shriver EL.
Reviews of the Butterfly Sriver EL
BACKHAND said this on March 25, 2008:
A very good rubber when glued. Very good for backhand looping. Depending on the blade, it also has above average control. A far better backhand rubber than forehand. I would say this is one of the most consistant rubbers about. Good spin for BH serves. Doesn't have the power of some rubbers, but is still fairly quick.

I love these rubbers. I'd probably recommend them to any level of player. The ELs are very versatile, they can pretty much do everything. They're strong points are control and looping. It's good for different styles. My only beef is if you're not gluing then there are probably slightly better rubbers for your forehand. This one is just a tad slow. Still usable though, and great for backhand unglued.

Very good with a OFF blade to keep it under control, but u can get a kick out of it sometimes.Not as fast as other rubbers but for the price compared to faster butterfly rubbers, this is gotta be the best.
tonovector said this on May 2, 2008:
Outstanding rubber for the price. Great for beginners in 1.9 mm without glue, and good even for advanced players in thicher sponges with glue. Loops, hits, blocks, and pushes well. One of the most versatile rubbers I've used.
hafawaz said this on May 8, 2008:
This is a fabulous rubber - it can do anything. I highly recommend for technical players and those that want a rubber that can do everything - block, smash, spin. The last rubber you'll ever buy.

A bit slowly, whenyou play from distance

Sriver's little brother EL has better speed gluing properties than Sriver but sacrifices a bit of speed but a little better control farther from the table. Short game touch is not as nice as Sriver because of the springer sponge. Great backhand rubber.

Great rubber for allmost any style of offensive play. It is a great compromise between Sriver and Sriver FX.
eelric92 said this on March 22, 2009:
This rubber is a great consistent rubber that I would recommend for anybody who is an offensive minus player. It doesn't have too much spin or speed - just an even amount of both. It's not very fast and spinny, but you will not miss often on smashes. Many of your shots, though, may become very smashable to your opponents since they lack a lot of spin or speed. I recommend speed gluing this rubber.
loki said this on May 28, 2009:
Best backhand rubber. Great control with good speed and spin for controlled attacking. Serves are also spiny and travel low over the net. Best all-around rubber you could ask for. Drives, loops, and blocks extremely well. Allows you to put the ball anywhere on the table with accuracy.

I felt it was great for a FH rubber. It really comes back onto the table from mid-distance. Pushing isn't bad. Not good for cutting, defending, or BH loops. iF you are really consistent with top spins with FH and BH then it's a great rubber.

I tried the T05 before i played with this rubber. It is much slower, about as much as i had expected. I had expected to be able to have a more consistant BH though in comparison to the tenergy. However what i have noticed, was, that the T05 was an incredible rubber for the BH. Every shot i hit whether it was a touch shot, flips etc.. or looping over the table, would land on the court. i really had to open up my stroke when playing with this rubber, butit is starting to work for me. And, I am learning to play with more control. This is a great rubber to play with when starting out, without glue. as per glue ban ofcourse.

Excellent All round rubber, I have it 2.1mm RED, and it can even spell the alphabet :P
There is nothing this rubber cant do, even though its not the fastest nor the spiniest.
Every person should start with a rubber like this or similar :P
lomar said this on November 13, 2009:
I really like this rubber because it gives me the control and looping ability I need to play very consistently. Sure it is not as fast as other rubbers but what it lacks in speed it makes up for with control and placement. The speed however will vary based upon how hard the ball is hit. Make no mistake it can produce winners. I like this for both backhand and forehand, however I use it on forehand and regular Sriver on backhand because of the lower throw. The grip of Sriver El produces very good spin. This rubber can do it all.
DreiZ said this on December 14, 2009:
Great rubber for BH, easy to block, flip and push. Great for attacking as well. It seems a bit hard when pressing down on the rubber, but when playing it feels medium/soft. This rubber offers alot of control, great for beginners/intermediate players. Very linear rubber (does what you put into it).
vollet said this on January 9, 2010:
Speed is the main problem of this blade now with the speed glue ban. I do not know how everybody will be reading the reviews (better to see the date of the review) because this was a great rubber for control, with reasonable spin and speed. With the water based glue, it is a dead rubber... I hope Butterfly High Tune sponge come to this rubber soon and hopefully it will be a useful rubber again.

Good for beginners' BH Traning sessions
SriverPlayer said this on April 1, 2010:
Sriver EL is a very good backhand rubber that offers control, speed and power with medium spin. It also blocks cleanly. Similar to Sriver, effort and proper techniques are required to unleash its potential. When its unleashed, it offers you decisiveness and power in your backhand attacks!
rezasus said this on June 18, 2010:
I'm new with this rubber. Before this i use dawei and tibhar rubber. This rubber is good for control and have very big spin. The sponge hardness is meduim so that i able to have wrist spin under the air when attacking. Good but when far from table it give slowing the power yet the opponent can read the ball. But i still learning use this rubber.
MP said this on August 12, 2010:
Positive about this rubber:
-durable rubber even i can use it for more than 2 years.
-spin got little side
-nice for blocking
-great for backhand looping.
-need skill to smack/smash
-need to adjust angle when blocking looping ball otherwise it might pop up out of table...or maybe my skill not the rubber.
Overall very good & worth rubber to try. I loved this rubber & give rate 9/10.
jmluat said this on September 6, 2010:
Sriver EL seems to be a very controllable rubber. I would dare say that it plays like a slightly slower version of the original Sriver. Sriver on the FH and Sriver EL on the BH can make for a good setup for beginner and intermediate players.
Anonymous said this on September 14, 2010:
It is a classic rubber with good feel, good control and medium speed. Excellent for speed gluing. After the banding of speed glue, it can still be the best all-round rubber in butterfly.
The_Coach said this on November 2, 2010:
A classic with a softer sponge than the original Sriver that everyone can play with from beginner to professional. Very durable. Today there is lots of faster alternatives. But this is a real do-it-all rubber. Fantastic!
Bruno said this on February 12, 2011:
Just like Sriver but 5% softer. Offers a bit more control, ideal for backhand. Also excellent for speedglue.
TTrocks!!! said this on March 1, 2011:
GOOD rubber very nice on the BACKHAND!!!! and on THE FOREHAND!!!!! Can take a time to adjust cuz of it's MEDIUM-HIGH-THROW!!! ITS LIGHT AND DURABLE and has A VERY GLOSSY TOPSHEET!!!!!!!! GREAT FOR SERVES...Very SPINNY!!!!! LOOP needs a much more grazing style need to adjust to POWER LOOPS and LOOP DRIVES!!!! VERY CONTROLLABLE on EVERYTHING else VERY GOOD RUBBER!!!!!
nobody said this on March 5, 2011:
It's a good rubber but it's is lil' ok! hit the rubber on the table...but just a soft one.... and the side where I hit it, peeled off! but overall very fantastic, especially for my style, which is loop then follow up, Loop drive, or mostly just a regular drive!
guifre said this on March 27, 2011:
a little slow. because it's old rubber compared with new butterfly rubbers. but for the price this rubber offers good quality than others of 60$.
cpen guy said this on April 1, 2011:
nice rubber especially for backhand. i use 2.1 red and blocking and open looping. might be a bit slow and demands a consistent strokes. but the 1 year im using change my play alot.
Sait_aja said this on April 24, 2011:

You can choise for improve your game..
Hooshang said this on September 3, 2011:
It has good spin and speed while control is amazing.I use Samsonov Carbon Tibhar and I use El for my FH and Nimus sound for BH.I really like it.You can generate lots of spin with El while blocking and control is on positive side.
Nagatito said this on September 18, 2011:
This is one of the greates rubbers on the history. U can chop loop lob block push and all easily its just that is a bit slow but u can get a faster blade and thats all
powerlefty said this on October 10, 2011:
Good at slow topspins and blocking. Not good for loop drives and smashing. Better with a faster blade or a beginner learning the strokes.
kubelo said this on November 25, 2011:
LA Mejor goma de reves que he probado hasta ahora. Ideal para bloqueos orientados aunque tambien para tospins, goma muy polivalente y excelente para principiantes por su consistencia y durabilidad. Un poco lenta si quieres velocidad pero en mi caso la uso para el reves. Combina muy bien con Primorac off-
vivcool said this on December 1, 2011:
I have used this only for BH, and it has served me well. Good for jabbing top spins and also very good for back hand loops. It is a bit slower when smashing, but that can be compensated with a fast blade. Overall I love this rubber on my BH!!
igszoctan said this on March 15, 2012:
Great rubber I have been using it for half a year and it is still a weapon :-) versatile to put it mildly.
Easy blocks, flips and nice pushes.
Threatening attacks close to the table but a bit weak beyond mid distance.
Cool rubber to start with at a reasonable price.
saketh150898 said this on August 20, 2012:
Very nice beginer rubber
amekun said this on August 29, 2012:

tomasedasonno2 said this on October 7, 2012:
Awesome. Good for looping and is a great combination with a faster blade.
reinardlaurenz1 said this on May 3, 2013:
a very nice butterfly rubber that is good on backhand. I recommend this for defensive player if you ever use it on fore hand, but if you use it on backhand it can play as all around rubber... very nice!
