Hello Nilesh,Thank you for your question.Players transferring to Butterfly rubber is a common occurrence, and the first thing to establish with you changing rubber, is how your current rubber performed. You used the Nittaku S1 Rubber, and the rubber we have that is similar to it in performance is Tenergy 05 FX.The S1 is a medium soft sponge close range attacking rubber, and the Tenergy 05 FX has the same characteristics. With the S1 you will mostly have to stay close to the table because of the sharp trajectory that it creates. With the Tenergy 05 FX, you will have more range that you can cover without having to forcefully play the ball harder that could make your shots more inconsistent. The other advantage with the Tenergy 05 FX is the topsheet has a longer shelf life. If you are interested in having a slightly longer trajectory for your shots, you could use the Tenergy 80, or the Tenergy 80 FX if you wanted the same soft feel from your shots.I hope this helps you make the best decision for your game and development. Thank you for your interest in Butterfly, and good luck with your training and competing!Brian
