very similar to the Roxon 500, but with the softer sponge, less speed, less spin, and a bit better control. Had it with MAX sponge on Kinetic Suprime OFF and Galaxy K-4 used as FH and BH. As fore hand rubber lacks on penetration/finishing power and spin, doog for BH blocking.

I have it my FH, this is my second sheet, first was2.0mm now its max. Very happy with it. Tryed a lot others (Bryce Speed FX, Hexer and Hexer+, Platin and Platin soft). My forehand prefferance is Roxo450 and Donic Platin, but Roxon has a better control and durability (Platin marginally (if) better spin)

A offensive rubber with good spin and speed

Hitting game is perfect. Spin game a bit lack. The sound is nice.

I have the same paddles with Butterfly T energy 5 and Roxon 450. Definitively after playing for 6 months with both of them Roxon 450 produces more spin while speed is similar. However Roxon's surface tends to wear down after only 1-2 weeks of intensive playing, while T energy 5 is much more durable. When it comes to gears they are similar. So slow, low and spiny loops as well power loops are possible with both of them. Control of the ball when it comes to pushes is better with T energy5, chops behind the table are about the same, however loops 6+ feet behind the table are easier to do with Roxon 450 due to thicker sponge (2.3mm vs. 2.1 with T energy). Overall I would give this rubber 9 or 9.5 as average rating if it had a better durability.
