I sometimes got a little bit of curiosity when non chinese brands release rubbers which is introduced as 'hard', 'sticky', 'made in china' 🙊🙊🙊

    Regarding sponge hardness, how is it compared to Hurricane 3 Neo?
    TD sponge is 57 degrees ESN H3 Neo 41 degree comes in at 54ish degrees ESN
    TE = 55 degrees ESN so about the same as a 41degree H3 Neo
    TD tackiness => than H3 Neo
    TE tackiness < than H3 Neo

    Tested the TDE on a Goriki Danshi today. I won't say much about it yet, but all I can say for the moment is that I'm a little bit disapointed. When I removed the plastic cover, the ball sticks for a very long time to the sheet. But after a ~2h30 hours session, it sticks just a little bit, like the Xiom Tau 2. And after some cleaning, the tackiness was improved a little bit but not the same as when the rubber was brand new...

    Strange, my sheet is still as sticky as it was new!!

    Weird. After one night in the case with a nittaku adhesive protector sheet the stickiness of the TDE has become brand new again.
    Does the protector sheet gives back the original stickiness ? Maybe.

    Edit: A bit weird. My Xiom Tau 2 which is protected by the same Nittaku sheet has now the same tackiness as the TDE when I remove the sheet...
    I'm completely lost 😂
    My Bluefire Jp01 Turbo (eu rubber, 0% tackiness) is also a liltle bit tacky when I remove the sheet...

    Could be that some of the stickiness from the protector sheet is sticking to the rubber??
    I always clean my rubbers before I start playing, regardless if I cleaned them at the end of the previous session and covered with a protective sheet.

    After cleaning it and doing the stickiness test, it appears that the stickiness of the TDE is more or less than the stickiness of a brand new Xiom Tau 2. Strange.
    At my club, the humidity is so high that the TDE has 0% of stickiness. It's like a non tacky rubber. I hate summer... 😂
    At least I can get some spin with it. Some of my teammates rubbers are the same as antitop rubbers lol
