Butterfly Spin Art
Review of Butterfly Spin ArtThis is an absolutely amazing rubber from Butterfly. Having tried most of the high-end rubbers available on the market, Spin-Art demolishes Tenergy in almost all aspects of the game. Let me break it down for you:
Speed: You need FOOTWORK to unleash the monster. Tenergy may be more forgiving (because of the softer sponge), but with this rubber you need to bend your knees and transfer energy from lower body to upper body. Better technique = better results. Amazing speed on all loops, flicks, and smashes.
Spin: A bit less than its tacky Chinese counterparts (think DHS Hurricane or Tackifire C), but still, very impressive. Serves are a breeze (especially sidespin serves like pendulum, reverse pendulum, tomahawk, etc.) Third ball attacks can be very spinny, your opponent will have a hard time blocking your loops. But again, FOOTWORK is important! Same with pushes, very spinny, lots of backspin.
Control: Simply amazing for such a fast/spinny rubber. Pushes are easy to control, chops work well, very few unforced errors on loops.
Disclaimer: I use a black 2.1mm version on my forehand, on a Butterfly Millerga blade. My USTTA rating is ~2100.
