Reviews of the Butterfly Tackiness Chop

Review skyline said this on April 9, 2008:

This is a very good rubber for choppping/blocking/pushing. It's a very spinny rubber. When glued up it also loops/counterloops well.Also great for beginners because it does everything else well too.

Best Forehand Rubber for defenders. Very spinny and lots of control. With blades like Chen Weixing or Joo Se Hyuk, you can make enogh speed with this rubber (1.9). With Defence Alpha or Matsushita maybe you have to choose an other rubber (NEOS Tacky?)
Review JonathanJ said this on January 14, 2009:

Chop isn't really my game nor is defense for that matter, but this rubber does exactly what it's made for extremely well. Chop has never been so simple. On a different note, this rubber is also very good at developing a slow but spinny and consistent loop. This rubber has such good control due to its softness that this rubber can be used for pretty much anything. Only know that this rubber is extremely slow; it was made for defensive techiques after all. Yes, this rubber was made for the chop in mind, but I say it can be used for the purpose of developing your game if only just because of the high control. Still keep in mind that if it's an aggressive or offensive game you're looking for, you ought not to use this rubber beyond learning at a novice level.
Review amelnik said this on October 6, 2009:

have tried chop 2 and prefer this over it. play with TSP p1-R 0.5mm on my back hand and this rubber is so slow that the pips are speedier, however, chopping a dead ball is a guarenteed point if the opponent tries to loop it back....GREAT control rubber.....little pricey, would probly try 729 judo or cross instead next time....
Review DreadRazor said this on June 22, 2010:

Really spot on for a defensive rubber. All my backhand chops are perfect with it and serving is a joy.

With thick sponge it can be used quite effectively for offense too but like others have said, prepare for a monster swing if you want to attack. Loads the ball up pretty well and can counter-loop chops if required.

The control is excellent because of the soft sponge. The soft sponge makes it very slow however and I've found myself in difficulty sometimes when defending against smashes. Supports and active playing style but also close blocking.

I truly feel that this is one of the best chopping rubbers out there.

Tack-C is great for FH chops. I was wrong about it being too slow since you can be wristy and it will land with spin..10/10 for FH chop btf T-C on Matshushita Pro.
Review Rocking Man said this on November 29, 2010:

It's really cool,now I'm a super fan of this rubber.

It's the best choice for totally defensive player on the forehand.With this rubber, the difficulty of forehand chop goes away !!

And it's good control brings the stability to player.It is very important for a chopper !!!

You can easily make the ball back when opponent plays trick, then keep chopping and defending ^^

It's really an amazing rubber,but, it's a bit slow...
However,for those who yearn for stablity , it's a necessary rubber.
Review oldschool said this on January 29, 2011:

Great for serves as well as slow, extremely spinny chops as well as loops.
Review spinfreak said this on July 12, 2011:

Nice spin and control on chops but looping is different, the consistency in looping is way lower than chopping.
Review BeGo said this on July 14, 2011:

This is my 1st chopping rubber, before trying chop 2.

I just don't like the ball flight compared to tack chop 2, because the back spin is too obvious and the ball fly too high that is easier to return compared to tack chop 2.
Review eap said this on July 25, 2011:

Great backspin :-)

Serves are excellent, full of spin.
Review Nagatito said this on September 18, 2011:

Its a good defensive rubber or a rubber for a begginer that is learning the basics has a good throw angle and u can generate lots of spin with it
Review crag_hack said this on September 15, 2012:

great for chopping, lots of backspin, but note that durability is bad, rubber wears out very quickly - it may claim a gold medal in a contest of undurable defensive rubbers
Review guusvansoer said this on July 29, 2013:

The best rubber for chopper. I use this rubber in my first 3 years learning to play table tennis. I have a lot of good memories with this rubber. I recommend this rubber for beginner player to find a good concept of play and learning basic strokes.
Review Josh20 said this on May 29, 2014:

Good for serve return, block and chop however do not choose less than 1.8mm sponge thickness because it's too slow and can set up opponent for an attack. And its terrible away from the table for any kind on attacking shot and the throw angle is too low. Overall Average rubber good for club player, only use on backhand.
Review pippy said this on August 10, 2014:

Here is my re-review of my fav inverted rubber. Just a disclaimer but I am a 80% bh lp player so I only use it for serve receive, serves, smashes, chops, quick blocks, hits, fishing and only if I am forced. If I need to keep the ball in play, this rubber allows me to do that well although the 804 has some similar properties too. The 1.5 sponge is the key as it slows the pace compared to other def. rubbers I have. It is not as spinny as a newer sheet of flextra and the tacky sst.
