That's exactly what I'm saying if you read well my post: it's a race, every ESN brand is competing to make the best tacky/springy rubber possible to mimic the boosted H3.

Given the rhythm at which the major ESN brands progress, 3 or 4 years and we'll get a legal perfect H3-like rubber.
You should've known better as you played in 38mm era.

Not even Butterfly could come close to Chinese tacky rubbers in the old days. If ESN can't even dethrone Butterfly in grippy rubbers after 20 years, what are their chances for tacky rubbers? To fill you in, Butterfly tried it with D'OR in 2004 and then Spin Art in 2010. Didn't even make a dent.

The head designer for the Victas Triple series has actually said in a recent interview that he wanted everything "made in China" instead of made-in-China topsheet and made-in-Japan sponge. That should tell you something.

Nothing is wrong with that.

The question remains if you could buy the 500HP BMW performance racing version of your car, but at ten times the price, would it bring you so much more joy than the one you have, to justify the tenfold price.

You just described my coaches car lolz. No back seats, cage, full flow through exhaust 3 inc, can hear that thing from 10kms away no interrior, love it.

Updated look for the Butterfly Boll Forte (much needed).
+ 2 new blades: Boll Fortissimo (harder, faster) and Boll Mezzoforte (medium hardness, slower).
All Made in Hungary.

Correction:

The Boll Forte 2021 is much slower than the previous Boll Forte which was comparable in speed with the SK7 Classic and the Omar Assar blades. The new Boll Forte and the Mezzoforte are both slower than the Primorac Europe and Japan.

The Boll Fortissimo is slightly faster than the old Boll Forte and still comparable in speed with the SK7 and Assar.

Butterfly Japan: Victas is gaining on us.
Butterfly Europe: Why not just ctrl-c Victas?

Bty Japan: No. We’re cooler. We’re doubling the lines.

They certainly make me feel even more pleasant with my Gear In.

yup that is a very expensive rubber. these rubbers are reportedly once only intended for Xiom sponsored players. These play really good. Even if you only use an all around blade with the iSelect rubbers, you can still hit far from the table. It is quite expensive yes!

Heard a rumour from a friend who knows some sponsored players, apparently stiga is working on something really special for the Fall. Dunno what, but he told me that it may be bigger than the 2008 release of Tenergy. Must be a blade, right?

Could be a blade or rubber. Most likely a rubber.
