The topsheet of 09C feels softer compared to Hurricane, and as others have mentioned, the sponge of the 09C is a lot more lively compared to Hurricane.

i just love dignics 09C on forehand, it’s close to a perfect rubber for me...flicks are absurd, lot of control and spin during topspins and good on serve...only weakness is that like any other hard rubber you need energy from the body. 
I dont consider it as a real weakness, i think i play with more confidence than tenergy that is just too bouncy.

Yes you need to engage the body when you loop with Dignics 09c or the ball is gonna be weak af... But it's kinda good in terms of honing your skills coz it punishes you when you play strokes in a bad way, so you can quickly iterate to find the best strokes. In particular if you don't engage the hips and legs properly you're gonna struggle, if you engaged them properly (and moved towards the ball and stay low), it's gonna reward you with the spinniest and most powerful loops you can ever generate. 

But when you're not feeling 100% physically it's gonna place a toll on you.

would you say D09C works better with a harder blade ?

I switched to 09C on the FH, but my play time has been limited due to the whole COVID-19 situation.  So far I like it quite a bit.  I brush the ball a lot, so the topsheet grip is really helpful for me.  Blocking is not my strong suit, but it feels controllable there.  Serving and pushing are very good.  

The biggest thing is the spin.  It never tops out and the harder I swing the more spin I get.

Yep the spin is what really got my hooked Wink it really never tops out and is so linear, you can feel so comfortable using almost 100% of your strength and be confident that it's gonna land onto the table thanks to the spin.

Forgot to add: I used to be the world foremost equipment junkie, but eventually gave that up and went back to Butterfly.  I could play just fine with hard and spinny ESN rubbers, but I did not like the lifetime (Butterfly rubbers actually cost me less in the long term and I have to mess with them less), so I went T05 BH and T05H FH, then D05 both sides when it came out.  D05 was close to perfect, but one thing I could not do as well with Butterfly rubbers that I could do with spinny ESN rubbers was service.  Not sure why, probably something to do with my contact.  D09C gave me my serve back, which in turn made my third ball attack more effective.  FH is generally a less consistent side for me, so all I need is spin.  I either push heavy or loop heavy on the FH.  There is not much else happening there.
I play with a fast and heavy blade and I generally have no issues generating power, so D09C seems to work well for me.

Hi guys,

Being a current user of T05 (on a TB Spirit), I'm considering stepping up to either T05 hard or Dignics 09c.
Can you share your experience if you've had an opportunity to try both?

Hi,

Having recently watched the skyrocketing Anton Kallberg, methinks he will promote the selling of a very large number of sheets of Tenergy 05.

Perhaps in the Butterfly rubber product spectrum there remains a viable position for Tenergy 05 Hard, however it now appears that Tenergy 05 Hard was an excellent stepping stone into the future, not a flagship entry.  The superiority of the Dignics top sheet, coupled with the nearly-as-hard sponge of Dignics 09c when compared to Tenergy 05 Hard, makes the selection of Dignics 09c supported by a very compelling argument when considering the Butterfly options in the harder-sponge category.

Everything listed here - Tenergy 05 Hard, Dignics 05, and Dignics 09c - possess very distinct playing characteristics from Tenergy 05, of such a variance as to require an accompanying desire to have a different feel and playing experience as to that which Tenergy 05 presents.

Thanks.

Finally got a change play with D09C max, I can say it’s easy to play with, open loop is effortless, but for those who think it’s spinner the H3 it’s not , since I play a all around game with P1 on my BH , I think I’m going back to H3 just because of the cost factor.

Edit: yeah you're comparing it to boosted H3, I agree that D09c is not as good as boosted H3, but it comes quite close imo....

And I feel it has advantages in mid distance even compared to boosted H3 thanks to the spring sponge.

it's usually pretty safe to say that when any competent player is talking about playing with H3 they are talking about it being boosted

H3 etc type rubbers are pretty well designed to be boosted/old style speed glued to get good performance out of them otherwise they are a bit brick like.... Cry .

09C gives a nice feel and also I guess when boosted is pretty quick as well. That's why the more serious players are using it boosted I would hazzard a guess.  Good rubber but $$$$'s or ££££'s depending where you are in the world! Big smile
