    I knew you knew and were just simplifying. And yes, Butterfly rubbers just last longer than any other rubbers with that kind of lively elastic sponge. This is some of why.

    To me, it also seems,...

    Just a clarification: ESN is where a lot of rubbers are made. Many of them from European companies.

    Butterfly rubbers are not made in the ESN factory and are not made by ESN. Butterfly has...

    One thing for sure, it is not a booster you can buy. But I agree with Lodro and NDH.

    Something to understand is, the chemicals applied throughout the process of making the topsheet and sponge,...

    Another thing you should understand, many of the rubbers made at the ESN factory have similarities, but none of them are the same. They all have slightly different qualities. Part of this is...

    The description says the Donic sponge has small pores. The Rasanter R48 on my blade....the pores of the sponge could be called a lot of things but not small. :)

    One more detail: It is possible to be high energy....like, hyped up....and be relaxed....not be stressed.

    Rich Dewitt is just a guy who has amazing touch and plays at quite a high level although, when people who don't understand enough about the game see him play they often don't realize quite how good...

    One more detail: breathing for calming the nervous system so you are more relaxed.

    What you are describing, done as an exercise, would strengthen the abdominal muscles (and also the deep muscles of the spine). But WHILE BOXING, you would not want to KEEP YOUR CORE MUSCLES...

    One of the complicated things about this discussion is, if you are thinking about how you are breathing while you are playing, you are going to be doing both things in a way that is in efficient. ...

    I guess, everyone feels things differently. But to me, the sponge on the R48 feels very different than any of the other ESN sponges I have tried.

    If he gets matches from players at the 2000 level (USATT), even if it is once in a while, he is pretty good. So, if a 2000...

    One thing to note, if he is frustrating and beating 2000 level loopers, he might have more that he isn't showing....he might be better than one might surmise from watching.
