Butterfly Dignics 09C
The essence is the combination of Spring Sponge X, the advanced version of Spring Sponge which has more elasticity; the uniquely composed top sheet, with strengthened abrasion, proves great resistance on the surface, providing the feeling of holding the ball at impact.
This is even more true with the newest addition to Butterfly's Dignics line, Dignics 09C. Compatible friction and a high level bounce is realised thanks to the synergy effect between the original top sheet and a rather hard Spring Sponge X (a little harder than Tenergy 05 Hard), to bring out the features of a friction rubber while upgrading the High Tension effect. The pimples code No. 209 delivers topspin and defensive play with high amount of spin as well as ease of over-the-table techniques and counter topspin. Dignics 09C, with the upgraded friction High Tension features, guides a player who expects the unique feeling of a friction rubber to new heights. Dignics 09C, Overpowering Evolution.

Reviews of Butterfly Dignics 09C (19)
Except the price, this is the ultimate "uber" rubber for my playing style.
Old Setup: BH Fastarc G1, FH DHS H3N BS Prov., Petr Korbel
Previous Setup: BH Ten05, FH Ten05, Viscaria
Current Setup: BH Ten05, FH D09C, Viscaria
So after a month or two this is my understanding of the rubber relative to Ten05.
- does not bottom out as easily
- last longer
- significantly better control
- easier to counter loop
- better feeling, ball stays with the blade longer.
- quality of the spin is just tremendous, though not as much as DHS H3N.
- I feel that my smash is better
(All this pros may results from my improvements in my strokes as, so you may or may not find similar result. but hey, my coach and friends said i improved significantly after using this rubber, probably table tennis is a pay to win sport after all.)
- i need to adjust the angle of my strokes
- i can no longer do lazy shots
- Blocking angle is also very different
- Weight, its heavy, this ruins my BH flick as the blade becomes significantly heavier and BH flick requires high acceleration.
- Forces you to readjust much of your strokes to accommodate the rubber since it is unlike any other tensor rubbers or Chinese tacky rubber.
- price, its too expensive. I get it, they need to make it more expensive than the Tenergy series, but come on, its just a crazy price for a rubber.
In conclusion i believe this rubber will be adopted by players who has money to spare and loves imparting huge amount of spin to their shots but this rubber is not for those who prefer smashing or have just started playing table tennis. Yes, this rubber has huge control but its heavy, if the player can't hit properly they may injure their elbow or shoulder or even wrist. For me, I think I will stick to this set up for a long time.
Amultart (88g) + D09C 1.9 black (47g) + D05 1.9 red (43g)
The speed is clearly not 8.5, because it depends a lot on how it pairs with the blade. You get full power and high speed when fully engaging the body, and you get less power when playing relax (in that way, T05 is faster than D09C)
On viscaria, it is a pure looping machine, with the possibility to chop the ball 2-3m away. Counter spin on D09C is nice but needs to adapt. Better success rate with T05 so far, but it is a question of practice.
On amultart (hitoki carbon), the 1.9mm is excellent, adding possibilities to really do efficient flat smash even at mid distance ! and chopping is really amazing with D09C 1.9 ! The spin at mid distance is excellent even in 1.9mm on amultart, this is a good surprise. This rubber helps to develop get a better panel of game and variations, compared to pure looping combinaison (TB ALC/Viscaria + T05 for instance).
Cons : indeed blocks are a bit tricky on Amultart, but very safe with Viscaria and T05 2.1. Amultart/D09C is shinning more on agressive blocks and smash, and Viscaria/T05 is more on the side of counter, spin, and good control in passive play. Depends on playing style, but to me, Amultart + D09C has better gears and allows more variation in the game. It is more funny than D05 1.9.
I tried D09C 1.9 on Cornilleau Hinotec OFF+carbon, which is Hinoki carbon as amultart, but the feeling is totally different ! The ball stick on D09C, I mean the rubber absorb the ball, so the speed is low, but the control is indeed much better in passive play. Very strange (as same rubber, same glue, etc... just blade was changed).
D09C 2.1mm is pairing very well on TB ALC (84g) and Viscaria. It is too furious on Amultart and smash success rate is decreased at lot. So to me, D09C 1.9mm is really the best for Amultart.
