    Posted: 09/12/2017 at 10:28am
In the August 2017 ranking, Rozena, 4 months after its release, has displaced Fastarc G-1, which up till then had dominated the no.1 spot for 16 consecutive months, to become the best seller in Japan.

The impact was significant enough for the editor at Table Tennis Kingdom to write a piece about it.

Quote First place in Rosena. Reading the tool ranking of interest   2017/09/09

FASTARK G-1" (Nitaku) which was ranked number one for 16 consecutive months in the back software section of table tennis kingdom WEB tool ranking. In the same ranking in the August summary, he dismissed that "champion" and "Rosena" took the 1st place.
Tamasu tweeted its "happy result" with its own SNS without putting a hair cut when upgrading the tool ranking at the Kingdom WEB. This tool ranking has received considerable attention from some table tennis makers and table tennis shops.

The tool ranking of table tennis kingdom web is not based on information from all table tennis shops, but it is based on the sales ranking provided by the leading shops nationwide, so it does not differ much from the order of real revenue in Japan as a whole I see.
The table tennis shop which is receiving cooperation is also a shop with few manufacturer colors. "It is funny that this product from that manufacturer is incorrect, so surely the salesman at the shop tells the people in the shop that he is operating the shop," and it is obviously a mistake if you hear that there are salespeople who take a standpoint.
Most of the shops that are receiving cooperation are not shops that work even if something is requested from the manufacturer. Even if one store does that kind of operation, it does not affect the ranking of stores with more than 10 shops. It is impossible to manipulate the ranking of multiple shops. As the salesperson thinks so, the manufacturer is already over.

"Rosena" and "G-1" ranked first in the back software section of the latest August rankings were slightly different. There is no doubt that there is a possibility of tipping over next month.
Tamako Osawa, president of Tamas, said in an interview that "Rosena" is a bridge to "tenazi" when featured "Rosena" in "separate volumes of table tennis goods" published in May Cannibalization We do not worry that our products erode other products of their own) ".
But was it real intention? After the temporary drop in "Tenazy" (open price), which was raised to around 8,000 yen in February 2015, there must have been a risk in introducing "Rosena" at the timing when it finally recovered. If "Rosena" of 5000 yen (suggested retail price) eats "tenazi", it becomes a strategy of overwhelming the head. What I wanted to eat "Rosena" was a German rubber called "G-1" "Lucksa" "V> 15" "Vega" "Omega" of similar price range.
Tamas' worry appeared in that promotion. Compared with past "tenazi", the advertisement at the outset was discreet. Clearly I felt like seeing the state of the market while holding back with "tenacity".

However, since its release in April, sales have been strong, spurring how to sell at the timing of the replacement of middle and high school students in July and August. While watching the trend, Tamas begins to focus on the advertisement of "Rosena". Even if you advertise "Rosena", you feel that you do not eat "tenazi".

This tool ranking, especially the trend of the software department behind the largest sales of the tool market, is not only concerned with users, but also by table tennis manufacturers and stakeholders. Although it gave way to the top spot for "Rosena", five items are included in Nitaku in the top ten. I feel momentum.
In addition, Mizuno will also introduce "Q 3" of spin tension rubber made in Japan in October. In the expanding table tennis market the rubber war is getting more intense. (Imano)

That was a bit of a challenge to read. Cannibalism, "Tenazis" ( I assume this means "Tenergy") and at some point someone did not get a haircut.

LOL. The haircut reference is an idiom with a Chinese origin, which means "in no time."

As for the part about cannibalism, Google Translate had trouble with that sentence due to the quotes breaking it off. It translates better separately. The CEO said Rozena is a transitional rubber leading to Tenergy. They do not worry about cannibalism(as written) between the two.

I tested this rubber for 10-15 minutes and I found nothing so special, really. Feels slower, slightly softer and lighter than Tenergy 05, couldn't feel very well the jump in blocking. It has good spin, but due to the lower weight I think the spin is not so much disturbing. I tested it on Schlager Carbon 93 grams, old Viscaria 100 grams and Primo OFF- 91 grams, could be better on more harder OFF/OFF+ speed blades with 95 grams, but definitely that's not my choice for bh rubber.

I use rozena on the backhand...as probably 99% of people here i was using something too fast for backhand.
This rubber has control and spin. Its perfect for backhand

I tried Rozena right after playing T64 which I found was a great change for me but as I played more with Rozena I came to the same conclusion.  I so badly wanted Rozena to be the rubber and tried to convince myself it was the case but I was wrong so now I have gone back to my trusty T80.

I can see why it's so popular though.
A version of Hurricane 3
A version of Tenergy
A Stiga blade...
