While the retail uses cheaper BLX Crystals that are around $100 per ounce. The difference in the overall feel and control of the ball are light years difference between the 2. This is the secret to Rogi's near perfect game and why the average club player blows.
it was also shown by the same school that those expensive crystals turn into the cheap ones when Innegra is around them...

Anyway, I agree with the Junior here that we can only speculate and will probably never know the real details...
