Butterfly poly has a good celluloid like feeling when hitting. Nice grip and spin. Quite soft feeling on hit. After two edge hits these balls explode, not break. I say it was fun while it lasted. Absolutely not worth it's price. Bought a package of 3. Two of them broke in 20 min, one lasted for 3 hours. Joola Super-P is better, but not as round. I was noticed by the system for zero warning for durability, so I changed it to 3. Actually poly balls brake often, but this brakes every time.

among the ball brands i have in our garage this one gives the best feel and this also my favorite ball, not very fast ball, excellent for beginners, none breaks at this time of writing

Muy buena velocidad.. Poco giro y precio elevado. Hay muchas mejores opciones.

Made in CN, Sounds a little odd and plasticky but plays quite satisfactorily, only downside I managed to get only 6 hours total time each ball, they just crack for no apparent reason during play. I'm an offense attack player. Now switched to XSF, which are not too bad - meanwhile also testing Btfly G40+. G40+ is amazing! Love the really crispy crunchy cracking sound on contact. So far G40+ not failed yet after more than total 50hrs play.

I can not believe such a sub standard product is used in the Senior British League. I've worked my way up over a number of years to compete at the mere bottom level of the national team competition - and it's removed all fun from the experience. Ok - I guess it's the same for everybody playing in that competition - but I just simply can't understand how this product has not been changed and is forced upon the players by the organisers. No consistency, the soft material dents after a couple of edged shots. If the hall were to get hot or sticky/sweaty, the dwell time within the rubber is non existent and the ball just slips off the rubber time after time. This prevents rallies and general positive table tennis being played. I had to employ negative tactics to win games against good upcoming juniors, which is not the reason I play at all. Of all the things that Butterfly has produced, in all the equipment that I've tried I've no complaints about the manufacturing of the product, whether that be rubbers, blades, clothing, old celluloid balls etc. It's a shame this product completely goes against the grain in my opinion and undoes their good name. Contributes to making table tennis dull and boring. Such a shame
