My theory is that if you're someone like Clotiman or Huieson and are going to be making equipment for the Chinese rec market (where they don't really care about ITTF or equipment rules), then a good strategy would be to sell over-thick rubber. Such rubber will make a lot more speed and spin compared to the usual 4mm rubber, word will get around, and they'd sell like hotcakes. Until everyone else catches on and starts doing it, too... :lol: And then they get onto Amazon... :lol:

On another note - I notice that European companies such as Stiga and Donic sell rec pre-mades with star ratings - one star, two star, etc. (note the bat in the photo is a "six star" :lol: ) I wonder if there are actual standards for these.

ITTF Athletes Comission Report 2014 wrote:
3. Rubbers Test
We have received test rubbers that are thicker than 4.0 mm. Mostly European players tested Butterfly Tenergy 4.25, 4.50, 4.75, 5.0mm thick, and Double Happiness Hurricane (same thickness as the Tenergy).
The additional rubber thickness contributes to the increase in speed and to better control. Some players commented that already at 4.50mm, you cannot feel the blade and that the use of booster does not make sense as the rubber is already very fast.
After 4.25mm there is not much acceleration when you use more power. The 4.75 and 5.00mm thick rubbers are worse than 4.25 and 4.50mm -very heavy (the difference of up to 10g per rubber, comparing to the rubbers under 4.0mm thick), no acceleration.

Igor doesn't mention the source, nor the year. Nor the ball. If anyone wants to experiment, though.. there's lots of sheets of sponge available - just glue on a layer of 2mm sponge and put a sheet of Batwings over that. Instant 6mm sheet.
