      Dignics and its Effect on Sales of Tenergy and Rozena

      D05 $104.99

      T05 is such a freakin' bargain! Here, take my money!

      I wonder less about the marketing (which is flashy but ultimately the same thing as always - more, better, more, better etc) and more about the target audience. Will Dignics grow the consumer base? Or will it just take sales away from Tenergy with most sales being people who are "upgrading" (in their own minds)?

      Butterfly did really well in Japan, Korea and Europe in 2017 and 2018, rivaling that of 2009 and 2010 before all the price hikes.

      T05 - 3 -> 4

      Been waiting for the May, 2020 ranking, but it's taking forever.

      After making a splash, the D05 has fallen into oblivion like your generic ESN rubbers since May, 2019. Prophet Shibaev!

      What about D09c? It debuted in the 4th place in March, 2020 and moved up to the 2nd place last month. Will it meet the same fate?

      OTOH, Tenergy and Rozena are still going strong. As rare as it is, Fastarc G-1 was knocked down to the 4th place. I can't remember the last time Butterfly dominated the podium.

      Due to COVID-19, the March and April rankings were compiled from 5 stores instead of the usual 7/8, so take them with a grain of salt.

      TSP Super Ventus seem to be really good. One of the kids in our club (national mini cadets) works quite closely with TSP (don’t think he’s sponsored) and they recently got him to try it out and he’s absolutely loving it. The only reason I reacted was that I had never heard about the rubber before.

      If we are talking about just Rozena it does get discounted on the official EU site, its basically the only rubber I see with a discount from bt. I believe it was discounted to 35 Euro a few weeks ago.

      Official infomercial for D09C with that awkward JAV vibe...

      11/2015 - Boll visited Japan to try out the prototype of D09C, a rubber in development to surpass Tenergy.
      C - China x Curve
      Tacky topsheet - Plastic ball introduced in 2014 led to players switching to tacky rubbers in search of lost spin, especially on the women's side.

      Hi does dignics last way longer than tenergy? Does the performance stay consistent over its lifespan?

      Yes and yes. However dignics is a terrible short game rubber and it's rather unforgiving as a FH rubber.

      This is so true! I didn´t want to support Butterfly by buying Tenergys when it was the most expensive rubber. However, immediately after Dignigs was released I started thinking about getting back to Tenergy and bought two sheets. And now I pay premium price for even a Dignigs rubber. Great marketing strategies from Butterfly I guess..!
