mejor en rubbers, speed, spin y control, buen rabajo
now a cliche that this is an almost perfect backhand rubber. It took a while for
me to get used to it, but now ball placement is excellent. It's spin is great,
but it is very slow by my standards. Serving with this is mediocre. Most people
ask for excellent spin and control in a backhand rubber - and Sriver El
delivers! Also, it is EXTREMELY DURABLE!!! I can picture myself still playing
with it in one year's time. :)
the bottom line is that this rubber is great, the sponge is relatively soft and
therefore is more suited to looping, many advanced players use this as it is
great for looping, it hits cleanly and is suitable for BH or FH, i have used
this for 1.5years, and won't change, it is great for looping, and one of the
best betterfly rubbes, when glued it really shines, its speed is up there with
other extreem speed rubbers such as bryce, great glues effect, and a great
rubber for looping, however countering and smash are still good as the sponge is
not too soft and the topsheet is grippy and stable, a great rubber
Comments: Its my
new rubber . A strongly recommended rubber . It have a very good speed and it
can create beautiful loops although i had just used it once . I can tell u that
its easy to make a loop with this . No doubt . Its surely worth your money . Try
EL 2.1 + BTY Senkoh Super 95-S. The rubber works VERY well with the blade.Period.
Wonderfull soft-mind rubber with a great fealing.
rubber is in moy opinion the best rubber i've ever used. I use this to powr my
powerful forehand loop and smash. Many world class players usch as timo boll,
zoran primorac and zhang yining use this great rubber. In regards to the person
who stated it is not fast enough to be a forehand rubber this is untrue. Good
technique and most importantly a fast moving arm means that even the slowest
rubber can still hit winners against very advanced players. The difference in
speed between this rubber and sriver-l is not large enough for it to
constitutionise a change from a forehand rubber to a backhand one. This is a
very good rubber suited for the counter hitting game as well as the looping
game. It has good spin and speed and is very good for serving after a good
serving motion is acquired. Overall this rubber is very good and I personally
combine it with a butterfly mazanov off+ for my looping/quick attack game with a
strong forehand which dominates play and with a weaker but still effective
looping/blocking backhand. I would highly recomend this rubber to any level of
player as it works for the lower order players as well as better players due to
its "gears". A great rubber.
it both sides on Iolite at the moment. it gives me everything i need for my
game. Simply Awesome if you apply more than 1 layer of speed-glue to it.
Comments: I used
it like a year ago and in the middle I tried Bryce wich was a pupubag cos I had
it for just 20 days after the rubber cracked in the middle. So I turn back for
the Sriver EL Max, cos it has it all, more Speed and Spin, and a lot of control.
I don't see at any point the price diference from the Sriver EL to Bryce. I
think that Bryce does not represent the price on the quality and Sriver EL it is
very cheap for what you can get from it. See that a lot of top world player use
Sriver EL, it has to be for a very good reason.
rubber is excellent. A large number of international players play with this
rubber on Fh and BH. This rubber is very similar to sriver-l in speed only a
shade slower, however the spin is greatly increased. Speed can be increased by
the human whereas spin can only be increased by the rubber. This rubber has
plenty of speed and spin. I use this on FH and sriver-l on BH. This rubber is
very good and is excellent for looping from both wings. The angle of the acr of
the ball is also very good for power loopers. This is a very good offensive
rubber. I highly reccomend it. The favorite rubber i have used.
classical rubber from Butterfly is always th3 most valuable "partner"
for someone who needs a good balance of speed and spin.
Fantastic rubber this. At the moment I'm using this in 2.1 with Fair Chack on
the backhand. I'm thinking of using this on the forehand (I'm using Sriver L at
present) because it's close to L but more suitable for speed glueing. If you
produce spin and power from both wings, then you won't be disappointed with this
rubber on both sides of your blade with speed glue.
originated from H.K)
rubber, full of speed and is very good for looping, but it lacks a bit in its
got this rubber. Had used Sriver for the last few years and my looping is better
with this. Also I dont feel like I lost as much speed as I expected. Great
using a Primorac blade right now. I like this rubber on my BH because it's just
spinny and fast enough. This classic also has better control than the original
Sriver and is better for regluing. I'm probably going to get the Off Kong
Linghui Euro or the Off Kong Linghui Special and continue to use the 1.9 or 2.1
on my BH. I would not suggest using this on your FH though because it doesn't
have quite what it takes to finish the point unless you have a fast blade (Primorac
Carbon or faster). If you like this on your BH, try using Tempest, Catapult, or
for more control, than the others, try Ekrips/Ekrips soft.
nice rubber. Not to hard, so you can add a lot of spin in your ball when top-spining.
Perfect rubbers for the backhand. Lots of speed and does not lack in control.
Great feel while blocking as well. Recommended for everybody.
Definitely lacks in the service department. Over-all, an okay all-around rubber.

for slow loop and game openings. Enough control for a intermedate player. MAX
thicknes of sponge is recommended for frequent players. 1.7 is good for chopping
and attacking. When is glued its sponge gets a bit more flexible and speedy. If
you serach for power use sriver.
perfect on the backhand site.

EL is the best rubber I have ever used. It's very good for looping, and speed is
great, although the spin is just like Flextra's spin.
Backhand rubber - very easy to handle spinny serves and loops - fast enough to
finish a point and has a great speed glue effect
half-baked rubber, supposedly for all-around offense. If you're a fast, power
hitter choose sriver-L, for more control and loop drives, sriver-FX. It's hard
to find a middle ground. There's no perfect all-around offensive player. You're
either more of one or the other.
el is a good rubber for blocking and counter topspin. also suprisingly good in
the pace department without glue.
enough speed glue.. you can do everything with this.
