New crazy rubber from Butterfly,The Dignics 05, released on 1st April,I bought it on the sixth of July, I am using 2.1mm red on my backhand, at first backhand topspin,it really grips the ball and creates a low to medium trajectory, the ball comes at supreme speed and marvelous spin

Indeed different - and slightly better - than Tenergies... It's ability to change gears due to the new top sheet is ridiculous. NOT for begginers: these rubbers are unforgiving; if the timing isn't right, the ball just flies off the table.

I tried Dignics 1.9 black on TSP Black Balsa 3.0 def:
Compared to T05 1.9 on same blade the throw angle is lower for topspin,the speed is less,the spin is similar for topspin but higher when serving.
Pushing needs a different blade angle,if the blade is too horizontal the ball is too high with Dignics and not easy to predict the flight path, I like T05 better for this and will need time to perfect.
The topspin arc is lower and flatter with Dignics and I wish the rubber was softer.
I decided to boost with 2 layers of Falco long and the ball is breaking out from the table better than T05 now and finishing the point is easier.
There isn't a big reaction to the booster and the rubber didn't stretch much,I have added a 3rd layer to try soon...

I played with Dignics and Tenergy 05 Hard on a Viscaria. Dignics felt harder than 05 hard. The spin Dignics can generate is phenomenal. I haven't seen that in any other rubber, not even the tacky chinese ones. But that's only when you grip/brush the ball hard with perfect technique and timing. The smallest mistakes are penalised with the ball flying off. Even the short game needs adjusting as the ball pops vertically up. The speed is much lower than the rating given here. The speed will come from the power of your arm/waist, the sponge is not doing much. My rating is 8.5. It feels like a more responsive, non-tacky, hard chinese rubber. It is very demanding physically. Footwork must be fast. Flat hitting is not an option. It felt uncomfortable on the Viscaria as the dwell time was really low. It suits softer, more flexible blades better. It doesn't have many gears. It was clearly designed for advanced players with above average technique, footwork and stamina who can utilise its phenomenal ability to generate spin. higher arc compared to the linear trajectory of the 05 Hard. Tenergy 05 Hard is more forgiving, with a slightly softer sponge which makes it easier to play with. I recommend starting with 05 Hard before moving to Dignics.

Dignics 05 works like magic. The high tension releases the ball quickly but doesn't make it leave too quickly giving yourself the opportunity to add a very good deal of spin into your shot. The rubber grips very well and it's speed is definitely impressive. Because of the high tension tackiness is evident but very concealed giving it slightly more control. The sponge is pretty hard which gives it great speed but could be very weird if you are transferring from lighter rubbers like I did. Counterlooping with this rubber is super easy but looping is slightly tougher in my opinion. Its very consistent and highly recommend this for defensive attackers. Pushing and chops also work with the rubber but I recommend using tenergy 05 hard for that instead. Blocking with the racquet can be tough but with good angles you can return topspin at dangerous speeds. Overall great rubber and highly recommend using it with other racquets from butterfly. Personally I use the timo boll alc but any racquet with carbon infused wood is good too.
