No, they have made a rule for when a pimples out rubber is manufactured, but have made no rule for when it is actually used. The lack of a rule does not make a rule unenforceable. The intent of the minimum friction rule may have been for when the rubber is used, but the actual rule is for when the rubber is new. Clearly the existing rule is enforceable as there are not too many (none?) ITTF approved pimples out rubber that are frictionless from the original factory.

So, there are 2 options to make the situation sane:
1. Propose, and get passed, a rule that a pimples out rubber has to have a minimum friction when used.
2. Rescind, and get that passed, that pimples out rubber has to have a minimum friction when manufactured.

In other news, apparently (according to a post on mytt) a proposal to only make harmful (VOC) boosters illegal has been withdrawn. So boosting will still be OK if done in the factory but not by a player. Another insane situation.

I never played frictionless lp. But I don’t understand how the it’d can be okay with frictionless anti but not with pips... to add on to what retriever said. Either ALL rubber ought to have minimum friction, or No minimum. It seems really nitpicky/biased/ all too targeted and specific to one small segment of the tt playing community. It really makes no sense.
Yes i’ve read all the stories why it happened, and I know how corrupt the ittf is, but it just seems ridiculous.
