As I see it, as long as there is no determined effort to detect boosting, then it doesn't matter that boosting is illegal. Very few, if any, players would purchase H3 if they couldn't boost it.

for those who do not know about this, this has been a long done as a way to avoid the restrictions of racket control wherein the parts per million of voc are still within the ITTF limits and also not exceed the thickness when applying a different booster for pro rubbers. a certain brand that i know also practices this as they use a different tuner or booster for their rubbers that are being supplied to their sponsored pro players. and yes, i have come to have a chance to own a few of those pro rubbers for a top 10 non-Chinese player in the past that i regret using because it is very hard to come by, being too expensive to produce for mass production and plays very different from normal equivalent of the rubbers for commercial uses. If some still do not get the idea of factory boosting to avoid ittf restrictions and get the logic of it then I do not know how to explain it further...

Sounds like another revenue stream for the usatt 

There will be different levels of certifications like umpires so recreational, club, regional, national, international, and pro.

Yes, players can still glue their own rackets.  But when Timo and Fan Zhendong set foot in the court with 7+ rackets put together by pro assemblers...

So it’s nothing to worry about.
