That seems like something we should have here. In the meantime can someone tell me what ESN is?

Couldn't agree more! Anyway not sure what ESN stands for but it's a German company that produces rubbers for brands like Donic, Andro and Joola hence why some people say that certain Tensor rubbers are the same just wiht a different company logo on the rubber sheet.

What are some of the main ones they produce? What do you mean by "true tensors"? It seems like ESN is some imaginary place, just seems like a lot of speculation, are we completely sure of any rubbers they make?

ESN Elastomer GmbH
Industriestr. 17
D-97461 Hofheim i.U.
GERMANY


They even have an address!

As a headsup - most rubber and sponge manufacturing is *not* done by the Table Tennis companies. Rather, many TT Companies contract with companies like ESN to PRODUCE rubber and sponge to their specifications - like Donic, with the Formula Series and now Barracuda, Joola with the original Air Rosnet and later with the Energy and Express series, Andro with the Plasma series and now Hexer, etc. etc.

Some companies have SOME manufacturing in house (BTY) but even then they outsource manufacturing for some products (for example BTY, Donic and others sell "made in China" blades for $60-$140)...

Does that help?

You could look it up

An acronym is a word made up of the first letters of other words. See above for examples.

I have experienced both; first I was SIDuced, then I was SIDomized. Ouch Cry

Although, technically, neither of those words are acronyms... Wink
