Can anyone recommend a good place to buy online that ships internationally?

The cheapest one I found on eBay was http://m.ebay.com/itm/Butterfly-ROZENA-2-1mm-Sponge-Pips-in-table-tennis-rubber-New-Packing-/132188865458?hash=item1ec71203b2%3Ag%3AWJQAAOSw8lpZFGy1&_trkparms=pageci%253Ae4e56305-513e-11e7-8c19-74dbd180b02a%257Cparentrq%253Aa8439e0b15c0aa66e7a2db97ffff4ca0%257Ciid%253A1

But I'm a but cautious due to all the fake Tenergy in China. Has someone bought from this vendor before?

I was going to buy from ooak trading because they're Australia based and I'm in New Zealand but they're all out of red.

You could check "Prospins's" sales thread here on mytt.

I got mine from presports in Black/2.1: http://www.presports.com/pimple-in/2471-butterfly-rozena-rubber.html#

US$43 or US$50 shipped.

Awesome rubber! For JPEN, a lot easier to control than T05, blocks are a new weapon with this rubber!

That is awesome but looks like they're out of stock.

I played some 20min with Rozena on a BTY Power 7 and although not a bad rubber it didn't shine with anything. Loads of rubbers out there play the same or better and cost much less

I played with it yesterday about 2h (2.1 red on the backhand). First impressions are very good:
- Very safe to play with
- Excellent control and ball placement
- Nice Tenergy feeling
- It's soft but not as much as the 05fx
- It doesn't excel on anything but it's good for everything

Things it could be better: more spin, less weight

Compared to the 05fx 1.9:
Speed Rozena > 05fx
Spin Rozena << 05fx
Control Rozena > 05fx
Weight Rozena > 05fx
Topsheet grip Rozena < 05fx
Sponge hardness Rozena > 05fx

Great input, azv.  Strange it weighs more than Tenergy (though not by much).

What blade did you play it on and how did its performance compare to your T64?  Was it significantly slower?

I use a 729-V6 (I can't find anything like it but better!). 
I compared it with a very used T64 1.9mm but haven't played with it, only with the T05fx

By the way, since a lot of people are saying Rozena isn't anything special, I'm wondering what rubbers would you say are closest to it from other companies such as Xiom, Tibhar etc..

Are there equivalents out there?
