It is known for some time that Darker has experimenting with cellulose fiber for a while now with Darker Cegna. Probably they want to use the commercial name CNF to pop up the price and sold blades. 😅

They don't want to repeat mistake Victas made with their now largely forgotten Cellulose NanoFiber blades, Dynawood and Dynawood Power. Besides, DARKER announced both CNF material and Cegna blade before Butterfly released Revoldia CNF.

Already been out...


And now listed 349€ on the french BTY store, as all SZLC blades they've already produced before (Jun Mizutani, Zhang Jike). Means that, as french and europeans are the last ones to see BTY blades newly produced arriving in stores, it's already in other stores in Asia or North America since a while now.

According to http://www.cnpingpang.com/portal.php?mod=view&aid=60803 the H8-80 will come with a lighter, 37° and 38° hard sponge. At least that is what Google Translate tells me "This time, Double Happiness has launched 37 and 38 degrees of Hurricane 8-80... So, on the sponge, Kuangbiao 8-80 is still different from the original Kuangbiao 8. Kuangbiao 8-80 uses a more highly resilient No. 80 large-aperture sponge, which has a more transparent feel, a more prominent sense of speed, and is lighter and more resilient. The combination of flexible and high-viscosity rubber and high-elastic sponge is believed to become a new popular choice for backhand positions."

Great! More options for my backhand :)

You can see it in the link ttarc posted.

I can't confirm in the pic if it is the same with the old 08 that has basswood. Also the handle is not the same with a dark handle.

Would fit the trend. But I think the half tacky one will be Dragon Grip just as a guess after it's name

I just watched some of the Truls Moregardh's matches from recent Swedish Cup and realized his racket hitting sound looked like coming from a sticky rubber(he was using dna pro h) then on his instagram he posted today a picture of himself having a DNA Platinum rubber on his bat promoting the new coming rubber at May 10th. So probably yeah both of them are half sticky rubbers

 
Stiga just announced DNA Platinum S, M, H, EH and Dragon Grip.

Checked the LARC for April Fools: these Rubbers are real. DNAs were already really good, let's hope the best for Platinum ones.

My assumption is the s, M, H and eh will be like Omega 7 series (non tacky) and then the Dragon Grip will be like Omega 7 China Guang.
