They've used those ratings for so long and I think so many club players think they are gospel that they don't want to abandon them. They help sell and people would almost certainly complain if they did. Wouldn't it be nice if it instead just gave technical specifications?

The irony is that Butterfly themselves are trying to do this themselves. They have all the reaction/vibration stuff for blades, and they give Sriver as the baseline for a rating of 10 for rubbers now. The stores have stuck to their speed/control nonsense though, unfortunately. Hopefully they'll catch up one day.

I'm surprised they didn't put Dignics up at 10 for everything to justify the cost - Although they've got pretty close!

Butterfly Japan has always had Sriver for speed and Tackiness Chop for spin as the baseline at 10 since the old days. They used to have an FAQ page on the old site where it's explained.

Q.ラバーのスピードとスピンの性能をあらわす数字はスポンジの厚さが違っても同じなのですか?

A.バタフライがカタログ等に表示しているラバーの性能数字は、ユーザーが商品を選ぶための目安の数字です。スピードはスレイバーを「10」、スピンはタキネス・チョップを「10」として各ラバーの性能を比較していますが、トクアツとゴクウスのスポンジでは弾力が違い、当然トクアツのスポンジの方がスピードは出ます。
従ってスレイバーのスピードは「10」となっていますが、トクアツのスレイバーは10以上のスピードがあり、ゴクウスのスレイバーのスピードは10以下です。またスポンジの硬さなどによってもスピードは微妙に変わります。ラバーの性能表は平均値を取って比較した数字です。

The West gets shafted yet again. Not even the US could escape this time. Yet in China, the MSRP for D05 is just ¥40(~US$6) above that of T05. But because the shops always sell it at a discount, the final price could be roughly ¥490+40? One webshop lists it at the same price as T05, but with a subject-to-change warning.
Yoger, 1 of 3 official online retailers for Butterfly in China, has updated the price, which is now at ¥521(~US$78).

[size=+2]Dear Friends,
I would remind you all of the many Butterfly charity deeds. E.G/ It was the year 2009 that
-- BUTTERFLY FIXED SPECIAL REGIONAL PRICING FOR THE LESS WEALTHY COUNTRIES ..[/size]
Again, in response to the ITTF recent directives of 2018, Butterfly kindly set up special price discount for most of their products (except for tables) to be distributed inside Egypt and some other African countries. No re-export of Butterfly materials outward Egypt allowed, though.
Just go to Cairo Municipal Sport Centre and get Tenergy for 40 USD from a local.

Be happy.

90 euro for a product meant to be thrown away after XX amounts of weeks is pretty ridiculous. A skilled player probably need to change every 4-6 week (or even more often) would be quite expensive.
