Would definitely recommend for a beginner or an intermediate player.

The rubber is very sticky and soft, which gives me an amazing amount of spin and control.

I was looking at other paddles by Butterfly such as: Carlos Chui, Kenji, and Shenshou.

I have several Butterfly rackets (Senshu, Carlos Chiu, Kodo, Kioshi, Naifu) so I have used a decent variety of paddle to comnpare the 401 Yuki to. I was actually looding to buy the Kenji to add to my collection, but I came across this paddle and decided to chyeck it out as it was $12 cheaper than the Kenji. Of the paddles I own, the Senshu is my favorite and it was not cheap at arounf $70. When I found this racket I was skeptical of it because of the cheap price ($35), but I decided to take a chance and order it and worst case I can use it a practice racket so I don't ding up my Senshu too bad.

The racket came in a day earlier than expected and I was pleasantly surprised. The racket uses Butterfly Yuki rubber onboth sides. My Senshu racket uses Flextra rubber and the Yuki rubber on this racket feels as sticky, though not quite a powerful as the flextra. The tape on the side of the racket is a very nicenylon ribbon material and it gives the racket a classy look. In play, the racket is ver well balanced with great spin and control, making this an ideal racket for the intermediate player. It also has 2.1 mm rubber which gives it a little extra "oomph" on slams.

Overall, I am very hapy with this racket, while not as fast as my Senshu, it is half the price of that racket and has 9/10's the performance.

This is an awesome paddle. The padding is good and very sticky. Great for spinning.
This paddle ratting is...
Speed 8.0
Spin 8.0
Control 8.5
It's written in Chinese I think. Great investment if your looking for a paddle that is well built.
Plus it comes with a case. Can't beat that.

This is the first paddle costing more than about $10 that I've ever bought. Many of my coworkers who I play with like Butterfly paddles, so I figured I would go for one of these. The well-made soft carrying case that comes with it is a nice bonus for me.

It's a very nice paddle. Significantly heavier than a cheap lightweight one, which I find helps me control it. The rubber is very sticky and soft, which gives me an amazing amount of spin and control. In particular, I am able to return smashes and execute loopy top-spin shots far better than I have ever been able to before. However, this paddle also deadens the ball in terms of speed. I really have to smash it hard to get much speed out of the ball. For me this is a good thing, since I have a lot of trouble with control with harder paddles, but some players might not like it.

Overall, I'm very happy with this paddle, but as I said I don't have a lot of experience to make good comparisons with other products. I think just about any beginner or intermediate player would be very happy with it.

The rubber is of good quality and is quite tacky. However when newly opened the rubber tends to be very sticky and attracts a lot of dust. The paddle cover is a nice touch and helps keep some of dust off the rubbers.
The paddle structure itself seems solid and has a crisp feel to it. The handle is comfortable but extremely stinky. After playing for a couple of days, the sweat transferred to the handle literally reeks. But this is a minor inconvenience and it fades after a week or so of playing.

Overall, It is a good intermediate paddle with a decent balance of spin and speed.
However, it doesn't do either extremely well. You will find yourself working hard to get major spin or major speed. I would recommend it as a very good practice paddle but if you are planning to use this for competitions.. you might find it lacking.

Great racket, good value for the money. My spins are definitely much, much better over the standard paddles I was using before. It took a while to get used to the paddle, but that's probably more me going from beginner to intermediate player than the racket itself. I'm happy with my purchase, was a good value for what I was looking for. (more spin and control w/o breaking the bank). Now it's time to go play!

I've used it several times and it performs above expectations. Case is handy, and rarely is one included at this price.

This is one Chinese import I do recommend buying. Just make sure you also get some liquid surface cleaner, as you would with any other paddle that has "stickiness."

I have used close to 4 table tennis rackets so far (My own) I have tried out several more rackets of others as well. My most recent paddle is a Yuki II racket. I was buying this for a friend as a gift, to get him started on Table Tennis. For the price, I was expecting an excellent racket and the added cover would help the racket stay clean I assumed.

The racket just felt really cheap in it's construction. It didn't have any speed to it. Worse still, the rubber on one side of it had a huge air bubble underneath it - and when the ball hit this spot, it would drop dead!! I don't know where they store these rackets, but it's pathetic that they are delivered this way. My first returned product on Amazon in more than a year.

Very disappointed with this buy. Wouldn't recommend it to others.

P.S: I always felt Butterfly rackets are better than their Stiga counterparts, but this one is definitely an exception!!
