What's going on guys, today I'm joined alongside the German table tennis powerhouse Dimitrij Ovtcharov! In this video we compare the new Dignics 09C to Tenergy 05.

Find out Dima's thoughts on Butterfly's new tacky rubber and on how he thinks it compares to Tenergy 05.

Dima has some potential as a penholder :-)

Dan - great video as always!

I think Dima is using w968 blade. Cz in the video they said he is using innerforce alc style blade. Maybe he is still using W968 given to him by Ma long

Oh lord, a good video! But I think I found too many Dima moments to be unintentionally funny. From his loud breathing every shot, to the https://youtu.be/RnoNipHJQXo?t=421 timestamp when his voice goes high, and it sounds like he's trying to do an old granny impression

Dima: Tenergy 05 very quick on the first 2 meters but slowing down after
Dan: Whereas 09C is more?
Dima: It's more like...[hand drawing an arc] Yeah, it has the curve, especially the curve, the length. The ball is long. On the first 1.5 meters it's a bit slower and then it gets faster

Dan: It's a hard sport yeah?
Dima: It is. Many people think table tennis is easy, man. It's so hard

Dima: If you do super rotation, and with Tenergy 05, I need to find the right angle. If I don't, I would miss. And with this one I can also find the wrong angle and still put because I feel like "oh it's wrong" and then I correct and then I play
Dan: Ah, okay. You can change at last minute, yeah

Dima: For the hard ball this helps. When you are in good position, it doesn't matter which rubber because you will make a good spin. It's about the hard balls

Dima: Tenergy is faster so...it's easier to bring spin into the ruber with less effort. You do less effort on the serve, you get more out of it with Tenergy. And with 09C, you really need to do it, but you're capable of doing more. That one? You get more when you do less, but you get less when you do more. And this one you need to do more nad you get more. But if you do less, you get less. So it's really up to you

Dan: This is why I think Tenergy is so popular because, with Tenergy, you can sometimes not do much and it has kick and spin
Dima: Yeah x3. It has this catapult. And this one you have to bring it yourself but you have more possibilities

The above, ladies and gentlemen, is player experience (https://www.tabletennisdaily.com/forum/showthread.php?23778-Dignics-09c-vs-hurricane-3&p=319267&viewfull=1#post319267), even if some of them might not fit with reality.

Boll would've achieved more with his right hand (https://youtu.be/Gdp3-6UCrOQ?t=960).

Dima would've achieved more with the penhold grip (https://youtu.be/RnoNipHJQXo?t=494).

Dima penhold vs Xu Xin shakehand... like if you want this

Does he needs to play making that much noise?

Stopped the vid after the first 3 hits of Dima. Can't stand that annoying overdone moaning. Even more annoying then Monica Seles back in the days ;)

Besides, video's with pro's talking about their sponsor-equipment are commercials instead of unbiased review/comparison. Not worth watching IMHO.

Still cool for Dan having the opportunity to meet and play with these pro's :)

Really like the comparisons and also... the kick on these shots are insane!
