The Butterfly Company (Tamasu Company Ltd) was established over 50 years ago by one of table tennis history’s greats, Hikosuke Tamasu. The Butterfly brand is a major player in the table tennis industry if not the number one company today. The “Butterfly” concept was born from the idea that players were flowers and the company was like a butterfly. There to serve the players needs and help them blossom and grow to their fullest potential.
As players, most of us already know about Tenergy, with Tenergy 05 being the most popular rubber sheet on the market. Born eleven years after extensive research and testing, Tenergy employs the latest advances in rubber technology resulting in being the number one rubber sheet sold in the market. The end result of this research is a product line of rubbers that were designed specifically to create a high tension top sheet combined with a spring sponge and a new pimple design under the top sheet. The change in pimple design combined with two variations in sponge hardness yields a variety of Tenergy products to meet every player’s needs. All rubber sheets are made in Japan.
