When I began playing table tennis my father brought me a Butterfly Yuki-FL. It has Butterfly Flextra rubbers on both sides. When it was new, the rubber felt sticky and tacky. But now, it has just become a smooth piece of rubber. My questions are as follows.
1) Should I upgrade?
2) My blade is a little damaged. Should I get a new blade altogether or should I replace only the rubbers?
3) How good is the Butterfly Sriver for a player like me who loves playing the fore-hand counter and likes to chop the ball? Is it too fast?
I am eagerly waiting to hear from you.
Yes it is time to upgrade. Once the rubber gets smooth there is very little you can do about it.
The blade can probably be used again. However you may want to upgrade to something a little faster as well. Get a blade that has good control and isn't too fast. Something in the All round range.
Sriver is a very good rubber. It shouldn't be too fast. It is one of the rubbers with best control that you can get.
