    More numbers.

    Spring Sponge rubbers took a cumulative 37% hit in Q2 and Q3 2020.

    As a side note, in the Oct 2020 ranking, the Innerforce Layer ALC has risen to the top again after last doing so in Dec 2019, with the Swat sharing the 2nd place with the Petr Korbel.

    World-renown EJ and TTD member erm sent me one of my well-like OFF to OFF+ Nittaku Mono Blade equipped with Diginicski 80 and 64... 80 was a little easier to control for spin...

    ... but we gotta say it... either rubber the ball simply flew of the bat faster than with T05 and left way sooner. Would take a massive adjustment in my impact before I could use either rubber... sure it could be done with time... maybe if I can raid the apartment of some unsuspecting 21 yr old and steel his kneecaps, waist, and eyes, I would swith to that or similar setup today.

    ... but that is not gunna happen and I will Soldier on with Next wood, composite, and Nate's blades. Maybe commission one or three from SDC.

    Skipped Nov 2020 because it was more or less the same but Dec 2020 is worth updating as Rozena takes 1st place again. Super Ventus also makes it to 6th place. Victas' marketing strategy starting to work?

    Swat also takes back the throne after losing it to Innerforce Layer ALC for 2 months.

    Will see how the Japanese market reacts before Tenergy 19's release in March.

    To conclude this post, TV Tokyo is kind enough to upload the table tennis part of the recently aired TV program that includes Butterfly's super slow-mo for T05 that I've mentioned multiple times.

    Once the bloody lockdown is over, I should get a pair of used Rozenas and try them on my spare SWAT. Maybe it is the secret perfect combo I have been looking for the past 10 years :-)

    It is interesting how high Black Balsa is in penhold ranking. Is it usual? I always thought balsa blades are a niche.

    The black balsa would only be suitable for one-sided penhold play. I’ve never tried any balsa blade. I wonder what the feel is like.

    Could be a blip. Not sure why it sold so well last month. It was nowhere to be seen the previous months. Might have to do with some kind of sales or Victas' campaign?

    Whatever the case, with the release of T19, Butterfly is kicking ESN while it is down. The "cash cow" period for ESN is over and the folks are scratching their heads wondering what's going on while their sales stagnate in Japan and South Korea. For Butterfly and ESN, the numbers for the fiscal year 2020 won't be pretty. But unlike ESN, Butterfly has blades to serve as buffer. Their blades are selling like hot cakes in China. LYJ Super ZLC will sell because I've seen posts after posts on Tieba asking for it. On top of that, DHS is slowly but surely eating up the BH market share that was originally ESN's.

    In my country Butterfly unfortunately is also leading the way. But Tibhar Evolution and Yasaka Rakza are really close behind.

    I actually cannot believe it. I just noticed that Mizutani has a backhand grip in his forehand.

    I see it, but incidentally only. And isn’t the finger setting on the other (bh) side more relevant for the FH? That seems rather traditional.

    Ranking for Jan, 2021 is up.

    Due to the transition from TSP to Victas, stocks are running out for Swat and Curl, and the latter is even out of the top 10 for some shops.

    For Butterfly, Rozena still at the top and T05 in 4th. D05 is back in 9th after last placing 7th in Apr, 2019. They have 7 shakehand blades in the top 10.
