BUTTERFLY’s newest innovation in the development of sponges is summarized in two words: Spring Sponge. It creates the impression as if the rubber holds on to the ball longer than usual. This extraordinary ball feeling cannot be compared to the past rubbers.
BUTTERFLY enters a new dimension combining a new mixture of raw materials with a specific structure of the air bubbles inside the sponge.
10 years in the making, the "Spring Sponge" is the result of intensive research at BUTTERFLY’s own development facilities. A large step towards this goal was achieved by founding the BUTTERFLY Technical Center in April 2006. Further development has since been intensified and problems can be solved a lot faster.
The result paved the way for a commercial launch of the "Spring Sponge". The reddish colored sponge named "Tenergy Red" signals BUTTERFLY’s new technology and emphasizes its ambition to lead the table tennis market.
