Hi,

Speaking of equipment dynamics: Butterflyonline is flashing on its home page: Butterfly S40+ ball, made in Germany, is coming soon.

Also on the website is the "new" product: Butterfly A40+ ball, the official ball of the 2019 Worlds.

I own many Butterfly G40+ balls, a new ball from Butterfly.

Thanks,


Donn

I don't get the strategy behind making a ball in Germany.  I hope it is a seamed ABS ball.  Even if is a heat ball, adjusting to balls that play differently is frustrating. 
I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

People like me that think about these things must be at least a little nuts.  Butterfly converted a ball bearings factory in Germany to create the G40+.  The "G", it was reported, indicated "Germany".  The "A" in A40+, made in China, was reported to indicate ABS.  

Not that I know anything about this, but one good speculation is that Butterfly may be discontinuing the G40+.  And a second speculation is that S40+ is a clone equivalent of the A40+.  All the indications are that ABS seamed is the king forever.  If the S40+ varies at all from the Butterfly A40+, I will be surprised and disappointed.

Thanks,
Donn

Donn if you are stuck with a bunch of those origin butterfly balls I want to express my condolences. That old butterfly plastic was the worst sounding table tennis ball I ever heard. Stick them in a robot or burn 'em I say.

Butterfly G40+ is the worst ball I've ever played with in an official tournament.
