    The Japanese yen has fallen a lot relative to the USB.

    This allows distributors, like the Paddle Palace, to buy Japanese rubbers more cheaply. However, none the the reduce cost is being past on to US.
    Even to Euro has dropped relative to the USD but ESN rubbers aren't cheaper either.

    There is always a lag time, perhaps the retailer has older stock that they had bought earlier at a higher cost?

    It doesn't help if the Japanese brands are selling in USD.
    however, what does hurt is the ongoing freight costs increase.
    I have a shipment that was delayed from May to June, 5% more now.

    Many ESN rubbers have seen a price increase recently. All new Evolution rubbers MX-D, EL-D, FX-D now have a MSRP of 52,90€ before discounts. Rakza X, Rakza Z, V>15 also now over 50€, Rasanter R45, R48, R53 over 60€. But Butterfly still sells their Tenergys for 59.90€ in Germany.

    The cost of inflation is increasing in most countries. Which means labour /rent cost as well.
    Agree it should be some decrease in price. But may be in reality. There may be a lesser proportional
    decrease in price.

    ESN rubbers are made in Germany. They use the euro but that has dropped relative to the USD too but not as much as the yen.

    The price from different sources in Poland are very high, I will not say the quality of ESN rubber is not worth the price but it makes them hard to love
