    The main reason rubbers cost so much is, the materials in a rubber, if you melt it down, would cost about $0.50.

    Oh, wait, maybe that is not why. PS: I am not sure I am fully accurate. Maybe the actual cost of the materials is about $1.00.

    Raise the minimum wage to $15 USD an hour and we can all afford an apartment and new Tenergy rubbers every 2 months, so says the government these days...

    It goes without saying, as long as there are s******s paying the price, the merchandise stays expensive. Its just funny how some merchandise is more than expensive...

    Can someone please send me their old Butterfly rubbers so I can melt them down and figure out how to make them brand new again!? ๐Ÿ˜…

    I'm sure if I put them in my VCR it'll work.... ๐Ÿ˜‰

    If there would be a US company wanting to make Rubbers, the first thought in their mind would most likely be : "Now, where in the world could we manufacture the bloody things cheapest" - Kazakhstan maybe ? Oh, I know , China ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Well, Joola has been a US-owned company for a few years now, but like most TT companies, most of their rubbers are made by ESN in Germany...

    And I think Gambler is a American company too, and they make their blades and rubbers in China.

    I hope that answers your question.

    PS. there are plenty of other rubbers around. But when you will face me you won't be able to block the spin from my Dignics BH and the power from my Tenergy FH.

    So we can't get you to stop buying Butterfly rubbers that allow you to produce more spin than with other rubbers even though it might eventually bring their price down!? Selfish ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Exactly!

    These are my very feelings to Xiom too.

    BTW - why the Record button on your profile do not work? If it's "made in Japan" it should work!

    Anybody know of such a rubber?
    It would have to be no sticky and with Tensor like characteristics.

    Might I suggest Sanwei Gear Hyper 39 - I think its made in China?

    Lazer, if topsheets and sponges are assembled from 2 factories, do you think it will not affect the price? Also, as a company wanting to profit because it is a business, why would they combine the parts now? They use to this years ago but now ESN and DHS will not let each other share the topsheet or sponge.

    I find it for 30 Euros, not that cheap really, but still interesting. The package says "half sticky" whatever that means...
    I'll put it on my list.

    Have you used it?

    Yet they're ALL made by ESN in Germany and they can't figure out how to recreate Tenergy and Dignics...

    Now, if you buy this Chinese rubber for 30โ‚ฌ, their prices are bound to go up! ๐Ÿ˜‚
