Before all the conspiracies and theories about DHS rubbers start, the main differences are in quality: commercial is the worst, national the best, provincial in the middle. It doesn't affect spin or speed, it is just the quality of the rubber itself. I play with provincial rubbers and these are better than any Tenergy etc. National is only needed if you are national level, if not its not worth the money. Commercial can be pretty good too but only if you are boosting with about 4 or 5 layers otherwise they are pretty dead (national and provincial are a little bit better even without boosting, more consistent sponge). In general DHS designs their rubbers for boosting, if you don't boost don't play Hurricane or Skyline except the new H3.50 or TG3.60.

not true.. national version has a diffrent pip structure under the topsheet it was proved with pictures in a russian forum..pips are shorter and wider and allows flatter loops

Quoting Em Rat Thic in the second link above, where he says he will explain "why pro players prefer Chinese rubbers on their forehand".  

That statement that is in fact FALSE unless you define "pro player" to mean "mainland Chinese pro player".  Because the vast majority of pro players from most of the rest of the world do use Butterfly (Tenergy, Dignics) or the various ESN rubbers on their forehands.  

I think we can safely state that Boll and Ovtcharov and Samsonov and Simon Gauzy (from France, see further below)  and many other people are "pro players".  Second, ERT claims that the reason Tenergy works is because it has "high tension".  In fact, the innovation was primarily in the nature of the sponge.  It is not more tensioned than its predecessors.  Third, the reason Chinese players prefer harder tacky rubbers is that historically from a young age they learn to play with those rubbers because they are produced in China  in vast quantities and are affordable, and their technique develops to use them effectively.  in China you can by a useable sheet of tacky rubber for about 1 USD.The Chinese don't dominate TT because of equipment.  Unlike  everywhere else, hundreds of millions of Chinese kids are exposed to the sport at a young age, the most talented have access to coaching and competition (including sports elementary schools), and are then rigorously selected in a system that considers it a matter of national prestige.  Those conditions dont exist anywhere else.

In other words, Em Rat Thic, a Vietnamese guy living in France, is about 80% full of crap.  I have traveled a lot in China.  I even visited a TT and badminton school.  (In Wuhan, where I have friend living in a danger zone now).  I have been coached there.  I would bet money that ERT has never been there. 

But I digress.  The only way to know if you like a rubber is to try it.  A 200 USD rubber wont make you better so don't buy it.

Or as a really safe general rule, don't buy anything unless you get to try it first.  Borrow the bat of someone at your club school or team and play a few minutes with it.  If it feels good and you like it and you can manage the speed and spin, then you can buy with reasonable confidence.  

If nobody you know uses the blade or rubbers you are considering, you probably ahouldn't use them either.  Real people give better advice than the internet.

the only real difference that I’ve been able to tell is how well the sponge holds booster and how long the sponge lasts (aka how many times you can boost ist)

I thought you are a better person before this statement.

Whoever is behind pingsunday is doing a perfect job popularising TT and providing heaps of useful practical advises. I like that author is clearly biased towards CNT. Watching matches of Chinese players is so much more entertaining comparing to other players (for many different reasons). It is also good  to know that there is a conspiracy behind their national rubbers, it makes it all much more fun. TT is developing because of enormous contribution of Chinese coaching team. They push progress forward by doing their routine analysis (I assume) of every good player out there and finding cure.

When ERT provide some "80% made up fact" by trolling Eu coaches he is giving arguments of "why". He explained the importance of correct grip, the reason why certain grip is better considering the anatomy of human hand and many other basics. Otherwise people like me would have to fish that all out from loose sources.

Grip explained.
Racket weight explained.
Types of setup explained.
Hard vs soft rubber explained with diagram.
ImPai explained.
Contact points are explained.

I don't care who is the original author of all that information. The way it is collected into single resource makes resource very valuable.

To each their own.  I will just say that several things he's said were contradicted by various Chinese coaches who've helped me over the years. I certainly don't regard him as an expert on Chinese table tennis or coaching methods.  If that upsets anyone, too bad.

In your opinion maybe.

There's really not much of a conspiracy to it.

This, among other examples from what I've seen, are what a lot of these types of videos do to people who don't know better. Get all caught up in small details over things that are mostly personal preference and actually have little effect on the improvement of an amateur at the end of the day.

All this nonsense like "my rubber is better than xy" is more or less coming from (teenage) amateurs who have less skill than money. Yeah, sure, my BMW is better than your Mercedes. Buddy, there's only one factor to rule the game, it's called "skill". No matter how golden your blade or how provincial your rubber is; if your TTR is below 2000 just stop talking about quantum-table-tennis-youtube-research.
