Butterfly Sriver EL
Review of Butterfly Sriver ELUsed it for circa 4 years (with some pauses) without changing it and it still felt like it was just slightly used. I bought the rubber again but after my play improved the rubber started to feel a little bit slow. Control is perfect, it goes where you want it to go. Spin is a bit lackluster but fairly managable. There are a lot of better rubbers for less money than this but I would definitely recommend it to an amateur-intermediate player in all aspects.

DHS PF4 40+
Review of DHS PF4 40+I used this rubber on my BH with a 2.0mm sponge, on a Huaruite Clipper (Stiga Clipper copy) blade, which is an ALL piece of wood.
The sponge felt very hard, although the control of the rubber was amazing! However, I wouldn't recommend it with a 2.0mm sponge due to it's "deadness". Because the sheet is definitely a slow one, pairing it with a thick sponge would only get you a feelingless piece of rubber. It's advantages are blocking, flicking and looping. Whenever I started a chop-fight, after the 4th or 5th chop it always went to the net.
So my recommendation is to buy this rubber if you want to try out a tacky Chinese rubber, with a maximum 1.8mm sponge. Use it on FH or BH, it's up to you, however, try to avoid chopping with it constantly. Keep in mind that this is a slow one, so smashing is not recommended because it can be returned easily due to it's slowness. Would use it on an OFF blade. (P.S.: maintain it properly, it's a dust magnet!)

Donic Bluefire M2
Review of Donic Bluefire M2Tons and tons of reviews about this rubber, I won't say anything new: one of the highest quality products you can get from the market for it's price, easily competing with Tenergy 05.
It's really really fast but not too fast, just the right amount.
The top sheet isn't too tacky but isn't completely dry either; for me, the best balance between the too.
Control is legendary at this speed. A bit sensitive to incoming spin, however, with enough feeling and training, you can master it's little secrets too.
The only difference between the Bluefire series is the sponge hardness. M1 has the hardest, M3 the softest sponge among them. M2 is the best balance between speed and control, 9/10, would use it on both FH and BH.
