After he damaged his 2nd, I thought to myself: sh*t, what is he gonna do now?... thinking he only had two. 30 seconds later someone from his coaching staff handed him his THIRD setup and he went onto winning that match.

      So in addition to his training rackets, etc, Timo has "a backup of a backup"....
      3 ok ... sure, but 6? I'm willing to think just as Airoc wrote "Hard, medium, soft and one substitute for each?". Well it was almost proved with Timo's vlog.

      MONOGAMOUS MAN. TIMO BOLL IS NOW IN SEARCH FOR AN OPTIMAL WEIGHT.

      Dear Friends,
      You can see the whole answer from the photo present -- the 12 rubbers sitting on Timo Boll's workbench, just take a look at the inky marks written on the sponges bottom edge. You can clearly see -- All the rubbers in the bottom row (most likely Dignics05 Butterfly) do have some variations by weigh.

      Why so many rubber combinations? Timo Boll is known to be a subtle individual keenly sensitive for any deviation of racket weigh and balance, even if slighest. He is now searching for the playing combo with optimal weight combination to suit him best. Yes.

      For many years, his playing combo stayed the same 95 + 84* + 84*

      Butterfly ALC (95) gramme
      Butterfly Tenergy 05 2.1mm (84) grammes in pack*
      Butterfly Tenergy 05 2.1mm (84) grammes in pack*

      And now he is trying for Dignics05 on backhand, instead of T05.

      Changing to a new combo with different weight may be a pain in arse for Timo Boll. He is well famous as a monogamous man. Yes.

      That will shut us down ... but if I see Timo with more than 2 (ok 3) rackets at a time ... oh man beaware!

Also I would expect 2, maximum 3 set-ups, even for 1-week tournament (and Timo isn't playing any right now, is he?) Is this more like blade/rubber testing session?
      I found this: https://en.butterfly.tt/sponsoring-spieler?p=3 it shows Timo Boll has Dignics indeed

      Most pros glue together 6~ rackets and try them out, and from those pick 3~ favourites. There's a video somewhere where you can see Hugo Calderano switching between 4 rackets during practice, probably to check which one feels the best.

      Careful with any manufacturer site "showing" things. While I am sure in this case it´s true, sometimes what they say is far from the truth

      It's almost as if the main purpose of this is to get us all talking about Butterfly products.

      In a german foren he wrote that he currently is playing a nonbuyable but already registered Tenergy version on his forehand. Most likely T09C

      The sad part is that comercial version of these rubbers isn`t 50% close to the pro`s version and still charging $90 for the rubber.

      says really love hearing Adam
      commenting but don´t
      appreciate he (probably
      unwanted) gives the word
      Dictator a positive meaning.
      There is nothing positive

      Interesting. I've just read it.
      I always thought that only rubbers that are publicly available are allowed.
      Would love to see that rubber. People have been assuming that it has a semi-tacky topsheet.

      Chalk is a nasty glue and the answer would never be a result of logic, I'd bet for One, but would not be surprised if Two, even for no reason, and provided he really use Chalk.
