I'm curious to know how much interest there is in rubbers in colours other than red and black?

I've only seen a couple of players with blue inverted rubbers, and one with green pimple rubber.

Are you using any of the new colors, or are players at your club using them?

I wouldn't mind using a green one (maybe blue) but rubbers I plan on using don't come in those colors. I have played with Firestorm Green though but didn't like it.

In my club nobody uses. In the league I play only two players, and one of them is a TT material seller.

I bought a sheet of green Grass DTecs for 20 quid from a guy in my club. I probably wouldn't have bought it new, just cuz I'm conservative like that, but I do like it. It plays really well, maybe slightly more controllable than the red and black... That's the only one in our club of 40 odd members though.

I would buy a pink or a purple if H8 came in those colors.  Maybe hurricane 9 when it's available.  At the club I have seen a sheet of green dtecs but no other colors.  90% use butterfly though, so there aren't any.

One ph player in my club got bright blue SP's for FH. In tournaments, I've seen people use green Grass Dtecs and blue/purple/green inverted rubbers. One in 20 or fewer, approximately.

In my small Belgian club (30 players), we all play with red and black rubbers. 
This season (from september 2021 till end April 2022), I met only 1 player who was playing with a blue rubber (victas v15 extra).

I'm in the circle of around 80 semi pro players, (U15~U19)
None of them are interested in color rubbers.

I'm using Rasanter R45 in green at the mo, colour is just a bit of fun.  It creates a talking point, and a few other players are looking at getting some when they renew rubbers for the new season.  But it's a minority, lots of old players locally who would turn up to matches on penny farthings if they could, coloured rubbers aren't on their radar.
This was a great signature until I realised it was overrated.

I tried a Donic Bluestorm in blue. It played exactly the same. I was the only person in my club not using red/black.

No colored rubbers in my two clubs.  Saw maybe two or three at the teams tournament.

Just a couple of blue (Bluestorm sheets) and one green inverted, didn't look to see what he was using.  Could be a few of older players got a bad feeling for the multi colored rubbers last time they were approved and then removed.  It might slow their uptake on the new offerings.  I was expecting the newer generation of players to take up the colors, but that doesn't seem to be happening.  At least not locally.

Waiting to color switch as soon as able but unfortunately I've developed a bad D05 habit so Tamasu Megacorp needs to get onboard with that. Colors are great but it doesn't drive a completely different rubber switch unless you were already looking to try something else.

A decent amount of European pro players are using non-red colors now.

Does anyone know any brown colour rubber?
I would like to use brown rubber to play against black one. As brown colour has "earth" elemental energy, which could opposite to the "water" qi of black rubber.

There is no real "pro", "prov" or "NT" H3 in the market.

I don't think any brown colours are approved... it may be too close in colour to black.

For some reason that reminds me of a classic joke:

Seems there was a treasure ship on its way back to port.  About 
halfway there, it was approached by a pirate, skull and crossbones waving 
in the breeze!

	"Captain, captain, what do we do?" asked the first mate.  

	"First mate," said the captain, "go to my cabin, open my sea 
chest, and bring me my red shirt."  The first mate did so. 

	Wearing his bright red shirt, the captain exhorted his crew to 
fight.  So inspiring was he, in fact, that the pirate ship was repelled 
without casualties.  

	A few days later, the ship was again approached, this time by two 
pirate sloops!  

	"Captain, captain, what should we do?"

	"First mate, bring me my red shirt!"

	The crew, emboldened by their fearless captain, fought heroically, and 
managed to defeat both boarding parties, though they took many 
casualties.  That night, the survivors had a great celebration.  The 
first mate asked the captain the secret of his bright red shirt. 

	"It's simple, first mate.  If I am wounded, the blood does not 
show, and the crew continues to fight without fear."

	A week passed, and they were nearing their home port, when 
suddenly the lookout cried that ten ships of the enemy's armada were 
approaching!  

	"Captain, captain, we're in terrible trouble, what do we do?"  
The first mate looked expectantly at the miracle worker. 

	Pale with fear, the captain commanded, "First mate.... bring me my
brown pants!"

Hahaha
let use that colour rubber vs Fang Zedong
but Chinese players are 100% with black FH
It raised the need of any earth colour to play vs Chinese black "water" elemental energy

We need earth ele-mental energy, which comes from brown colour
so funny that we also don't have "metal" which represent by white or silver colour.

Played in the Sacramento tournament yesterday.  125 players with only two green rubbers.
