The progress of development with Timo Boll

Timo Boll (Germany) was honored for his phenomenal achievement and fair play spirit, having won the European championship in 2002 at the age of 21, and has continued to reign at the top of the world until now. He has been using equipment such as the Sriver, Tenergy 05, etc., which have excellent rotation performance during their time, for loops and counters with heavy rotation. It’s no exaggeration to say that the enterprising spirit of continually embracing the latest equipment and technology and cultivating new play has supported his brilliant career.

“A rubber of a totally new type. I have long wished to play with such a rubber”

――High rotation performance
It can draw a curved arc when I play topspin, but also the quality of the ball is good even if I make topspin with just the wrist from a difficult position. When I play topspin from low position, the ball can sometimes slip with the other rubbers, but I can grab the ball without losing quality if it is 09C. When I make service I can feel the high performance of rotation. I feel that I can manage the length and rotation of service well with Dignics 09C, compare to other High Tension Rubbers, since I can put more rotation into the ball even when I don’t hit it perfectly.

――Passive control
Since the contact of the ball and rubber is long, and it grabs the ball firmly, I feel that I can control the ball not only when I serve by myself. For example, when I want to return a banana flick, I can manage to return more precisely since the higher ability of control helps even if the timing and angle are slightly off.

――Return with high quality
I feel that I can return the opponent’s spin on banana flick or topspin – (and even increase it!.)
It realizes the power of topspin, but at the same time also I can feel the bounce and holding the ball firmly. Modern table tennis shows a lot of banana flicks, and the opponents are required to return such a ball with high quality. Dignics 09C is the rubber that fulfills these requirements in modern table tennis.

“09C and me will perform the best table tennis at the table”

The playing style which I currently prefer is to play at the table, less rally and get point as early as possible. Since Dignics 09C can perform very well if I play at the table, I can feel that the style I’m using right now and the performance of the rubber are a perfect match.

“I’m very happy to play with this rubber, because this is for sure the best rubber I ever had”

――Timo Boll
