Blade: Schargler Light
Forehand: Speedy Soft 2mm
Backhand: Sriver 1.7mm

Question: Butterfly, I want to try Butterfly Ranunculus, 5-ply, hard feel, all wood blade and I would like pips out rubber on F/H and B/H. Which pips out would be the best for all out attacking close to the table?

Answer: Hi Frank,

Thanks for your question and interest in Butterfly equipment.

I recommend for you to try the Flarestorm rubber on the forehand and the Flarestorm II rubber on the backhand.
The difference between the two rubbers is the density as the Flarestorm II has a softer feel and is more forgiving. Since you are transitioning from a smooth rubber on the backhand, the softer feel of the Flarestorm II will be easier to control.

Hope you enjoy your new equipment!

All the best,
