Hi,

Does anyone have information on the Chinese National Team's inverted backhand rubbers now in use from Butterfly?

Thanks.

One of my practice partners is friends with a former world champ in China.  The practice partner would travel back to China and bring back lots of H3 national before the C-19 outbreak.  They asked me to try a special sheet of H3 national red and it played a lot like tenergy and unlike the H3 national red normally available.  My friend was only given one sheet by the former world champ as this type of H3 national is extremely rare and very hard to obtain. 

So I can verify that there are indeed at least two versions of H3 national red and they look exactly the same.  They play very differently though.

Hi,

Thank you so much for your contributions here.

Since the Sriver days, Butterfly has had a contract with the Chinese National Team (for which Butterfly paid the Team a large amount of money) to provide top-of-the-line Butterfly rubbers for use by the Chinese players.  The model that resulted from that is a top Chinese rubber on the forehand and a Butterfly rubber on the backhand.

My question assumed the above model remains in place.  The question was prompted by the advent of Dignics in the Butterfly line and the curiosity as to the presence of this new product on the selection process of the Chinese.

Thank you again.
