Pimples out rubbers should not have problems spinning that ball!

I can see it now, new FleXtreme blade technology by Stiga, Tenergy Ultra PO (pimples out!) rubbers by butterfly, rainbow coloured version of the ball for the Chinese Super League... it's perfect!! (eyes turning into dollar signs and laughing maniacally)

There is no such rubber, i'm just joking with the possibility of ITTF adopting that ball, and manufacturers making specialized products for it! :)
