The most successful Butterfly Rubber since it's introduction in 1967. More than 20 World and 70 European Champions have won their titles with Sriver. The combination of the hard and spinny rubber on the surface with a medium hard and flexible sponge makes Sriver the natural choice for all round attacking players.It's consistency proves it is the all time winner. 51% of all players at the World Championships in 1993 in Gothenburg selected Butterfly Rubbers. The most popular of all was Sriver.

Maybe this was good before i was born, but not a chance today. Worst rubber i have tried yet. Tried Mark V from Yasaka, because someone said it was they two that competed some with eachother. Mark V had much more spin feeling and it had actually hold the line to a certain level even today. When you see the manufactors numbers, you dont buy it: Manufacturer Details Speed 10 / 15 Spin 8.0 / 15!)

My first rubber, this rubber is good but not to return passive especially when counter backspin, the only best choice is use backhand or forehand topspin. If you use chop or push is so difficult to aim low and most of it will end with lob game. This is good choice for day 1 table tennis lesson, and still good choice when you need faster rubber just boost it 😉. Along with mark v for me if you prefer european style / or hitter, sriver is best for it, but if you like chinese style / brush, i suggest you switch to mark v.

Back in a day, in early 90s when i was starting out this was the rubber to have. Living in a small town i had no access to any other rubber but this. Sriver was my TT family basically. There was no internet to buy from China :). For a 4th grader this was as cool as it gonna get in TT. When i would get a new sheet from my parents i thought i was the king of the world!!! Well since we were not the richest family i was king of the world maybe once per year or so :). Many years have passed since 90s and i dont see myself using Sriver anymore but this rubber still holds special place in my heart. Pros: Rubber has no weak areas of play. Solid all around rubber at this time of age. Cons: Bizarrely expensive 25$-30$ per sheet for a dinosaur of a rubber. I would not recommend this rubber to anybody anymore. Many say it is one of the best beginners rubbers but i think there are many better (yasaka Zap Bio, Palio CJ 8000 Bio and so on) for the fraction of the price. I do understand that "new" rubbers like Zap or CJ have better performance then Sriver but so do "new" beginners then beginners in my time. Have fun playing TT and be happy :).
