This is the first rubber to feature Butterfly's new "Spring Sponge". Spring Sponge feels hard yet its new technology allows it to hold the ball on the racket longer. Tenergy 05 combines this new explosive sponge with a new tensioned top-sheet with maximum surface grip.
The result is a rubber that produces massive amounts of spin on serves and topspin drives. Tenergy is also the fastest most explosive rubber in our line all without the use of any speed-glues or tuning. Tenergy will keep its speed throughout the life of the rubber without need for any special treatments. Finally a rubber that will make you feel like you are playing in the days of the 38 mm ball again!

Reviews of Butterfly Tenergy 05 (104)
Submit a short review about Butterfly Tenergy 05.
As directly below, I was sold from the first hit, and bought the rubber immidiately after a couple minutes of playing.
Tenergy has also made realize that there are no "best" rubbers," but rather rubbers that suite your style and stroke. The Tibhar Evolution MXP that I used on FH before made my game hard to control and inconsistent. It is probably every bit as good as Tenergy, but not for me.
I am an agressive all round attacker/opening looper at mid distance from the table, and am tall and fairly strong. The medium speed is ideal for my strength and already very fast Xiom Hayabusha. The great spin of Tenergy make it ideal for my playing style (as well as cutting and serving). The soft, light, catipult feel of the rubber hitting the ball feels good for my stroke.
So, considering the wealth of my other reviews, I don't think I need to add any more. It's a top quality rubber and perfect for me.
Perfect for quick attackers
I really hate this rubber. It is stone hard, heavy and without feel. Maybe it is good for best world players but not for me definitely (and I'm not beginner). If you hit hard, the ball goes lightning fast. You can also make crazy spin when serving. But that is about everything for me. Control is awful. Slower loops or brushes are hard to perform, blocking and chopping not to mention. My backhand with Rakza7 soft for example is really great and fun to play, but with Tenergy it's disaster. I just do not feel the ball with this rubber. I think there are lots of better choices to spend 80 $ on TT equipment.
This is an excellent rubber. Loop monster and excellent spin, very costly. But prefer Calibra LT sound, much more bang for the buck.
Recently switched to Tenergy05 after I was recommended to put it on my child's racket. I ended up putting it onto my racket too after having a go. The rubber is very nice to play with. Speed is excellent over my previous rubbers (H3N, H2N, Sriver). The ball was a lot faster and I was putting in half the effort compared to my old rubber.
As for durability, a lot of reviews here say it is very durable, I beg to differ though. I put Tenergy05 on my child's racket while at a training camp. After 2 weeks of training (90 hours), the rubber has very visible signs of wear from the ball contacting it and the edges of the rubber chip and break with the slightest bump. At the end of the training camp the rubber looks like it has had mice gnawing around the entire edge of it. This also was the same on the BH side which has Tenergy64.
With my own bat, after I put Tenergy05/64 on it, I am EXTREMELY careful with it and have not hit it on the table edge or anything, yet it has a chip on the edge. Also the same with visible wear. I have only trained with it for about 20 hours, yet it is starting to show wear on the spot where the ball contacts.
This rubber is usually in the $70-$90 range and very pricey for how easily it wears and damages, but I guess that is the property of the rubber and is what you must put up with if you want to use one of the best rubbers out there.
