Every product comes with a degree of variations.
Therefore the selection by weight (Boll example) is not a big deal.
Sponge hardness on commercial products also varies, and I am sure if they do a run of a dedicated Ma Long 41,5 hardness even some of that wouldn´t be 100% precise.
But yes, you can measure and hand-select the ones that are and sell the rest as 41 degree National or whatever...

Yes they aren't 100% precise. The commercial one might be 80% precise, national might be 96% and the celebrity-level rubbers are probably 99% precise.

But I can't even tell the slight difference between the provincial and national rubbers 😆

There is this Andro advertisement that has stuck with me and impresses me:

It showed Mr. Simon Gauzy saying C53 for me, C48 for the rest of you.

It is the most honest marketing pitch ever in the TT universe.

Maybe, but just about everyone I know who uses the rubbers uses c53. I thought I would like c48, but it left me disgusted, maybe if I had tried c53, maybe I would still be using it today lol.

FZD was known to use a viscaria with Stiga handle. And AJH was using a W968 for several feeders while his TMX i pro is getting more popular. I would say that it all depends on the players and whether the manufacturers put a strict requirement on it.
