Has anyone ordered from butterfly jp before?
If you have, can you please tell me what tokuatsu, medium, and hot means?
It comes out when you order a rubber. e.g red- tokuatsu, red-medium, red- hot and black-tokuatsu black-hot, and black medium.
Can anyone explain to me how this works? Or what mm is it?

Butterfly rubber packaging have a sticker on top right to tell the thickness of rubber, from my observation, Tokuatsu normally link with 2.1mm and Atsu is with 1.9mm, after checking dictionary, Tokuatsu meaning is Special Thickness, Atsu meaning is Thickness. I have checked Butterfly catalog as well, Tokuatsu is for sponge thickness ~2.1mm, Atsu for 1.9~2.1mm, Medium is for 1.5~1.9mm, Max is for 3.9~4.0mm (including rubber sheet and sponge). I have learned Japanese before but not expert, if my explanation is wrong, please correct me.
