TENERGY: Excellent for Imparting Spin on the Ball
TENERGY 05 has a unique feeling using a combination of Spring Sponge technology, High Tension rubber and a tacky surface. It is excellent for imparting a great deal of spin on the ball. 05 in the name was adopted from Pimples Code No. 5. Tenergy 05 enables a full range of topspin play at or away from the table. It keeps its explosive power throughout the life of the rubber without the use of speed glue or boosting. Tenergy 05 is very popular among world-class table tennis players. European Champion Timo Boll uses Tenergy 05 on forehand and backhand.
• Please use Free Chack II when you apply Tenergy to a blade.

This is probably still the best rubber on the market. Speed is there, control is good, spin is definitely above average, ball trajectory is unmatched. One might say this is the most difficult rubber to play against. If u dont mind the price then i'd recommend investing in this. (downside might be the bad durability, but i hope i just got a badly manufactured one; mine crumbles down easily on the sides and even got ripped on the middle when barely hitting a court divider)
This rubber suits well for blocking and driving and looping against backspin near the table, this rubber can creat easily tons of spin with the correct technique and also very powerful strokes, I think is more likely to be a rubber for backhand that in my case I lack of power on backhand and I need this extra power from the rubber on short mechanisms and near the table but one extra characteristic is that if you feel comfortable to make a strong shot far from the table occasionally itll surprise you! Very hood rubber for backhand.

Great rubber that provides everything needed to win at this game. Looping, pushing, smashing, speed acceleration, blocking, ball placement, counter attacking, hitting from near or far, you name it....it can do it. Great combination on my Donic Waldner World Champion '89 OFF inner fiber blade (SZLC). Using the 2.1 (max) on both sides of the blade and the touch and feel is very nice and the sound is tremendous. What makes this combination work is the blade has a stiff soft-like feel (spruce, sruce, carbonfleece zylon, kiri) while the rubber has IT'S OWN medium to medium hard feel. When looping, the rubber grabs the ball and sinks in just enough and brings out the best performance of the Waldner WC89 blade. Really enjoy playing with this combination. GIVE IT A TRY!!!
Good backhand and forehand rubber. It has only good performance if you play active. Definitely a spin monster. Also possible to generate a huge amount of spin with less effort. But not easy to play if you play passiv. There are better rubbers for blocking and chopping.
Wow, one of the most talked about products on the market and I understand why. This rubber can create power and spin like no other rubber that I've tried. Looping and smashing is really hard to stop for the opponent because of the sheer power and spin combined with a low arc. It makes your attacks really unpredictable and deadly. It's not for beginners because you need a decent technique to get the most of it or just be able to put it on the table. On an allround blade though, I think most players can handle it, to a certain extent. When blocking you need to turn your racket a bit downwards because otherwise the ball will just ping off the bat and out of the table. When you learn how to, you can do some amazing offensive blocking that will win you many points. When looping you need to be careful with your timing and technique because it doesn't have that much dwell time. Also you need to be really direct and not brush too much upwards, the rubber will do it for you. In this area many players will find it difficult with low balls or backspin, but again, when you learn it the rubber does it for you, with a lot of speed as well!
The downside for me is the durability. Of course, it doesn't need that much contact or tackiness to brush the ball which makes it good for a long time, but other than that it isn't very durable. Especially in relation to the price it can be very expensive to change rubbers. So make sure to take care of it! It's an extraordinary rubber!
Only good for topspining, looping and speed. Nothing else.
Control is catastrophal: one stroke in the same conditions never gives the same results - > very unpleasant springy catapult effect and elastic caoutchouc sensation.
DHS Goldarc 8, DHS Hurricane 3, Thibar MX-P or Yasaka Mark V, Joola Rhyzm.. Have a much better feeling with a much more reliable throw results in short game and blocks and are globally much more forgiving.

I've been using this rubber for 3 years now. It is the most durable rubber I've used so far (will try Dignics 05 in the future).
Although not as prominent as initially, it still retains it's catapult effect that makes this rubber so scary.
I used this rubber primarily on BH, and if you are an aggressive BH attacker, this is the best rubber you could ask for. The catapult effect and the suddenness of the ball often catches your opponent off guard which lets you either take the rally initiative or win the point outright. Because of it's bounciness, i'd say it is the easiest and most effective tensor rubber for looping mid distance. At close to the table, the margin for error is a lot smaller.
This rubber has great spin capabilities. Although not on the same league as Chinese rubbers, for tensors, Tenergy 05 is the best I've encountered so far. Especially on slow openings/brushing strokes, you really feel the ball sink and propel with loads of topspin.
One contention I had however was trying to lift backspin close to the table. Due to the high throw angle, you'd have to close the blade angle, which would sometimes cause the ball to go into the net from the backspin. So it's a balance between brushing upwards to counteract the backspin while closing the blade angle. However, when it was achieved, it made for a difficult return for the opponent.
In terms of control, because of the strong catapult effect, the Tenergy 05 has a tendency to pop the ball up high on serve returns or backhand blocks if you are not careful. I'd also rate it as more sensitive to spin than other Tenergy lines like the Tenergy 80.
Still, overall still an excellent rubber, and an extraodinarily deadly BH weapon if used correctly. Would definitely recommend.
Speed: MX-P > Tenergy 80 > Tenergy 05 > H3 Provincial > H3 Neo=H8 Hard
Spin: H8 Hard > H3 Provincial > H3 Neo > Tenergy 05 > Tenergy 80 > MX-P
Very fast and spinny, but suprisingly with a lot of control. Even for me as a intermediate player I feel that this rubber has improved my game. Best rubber I've used so far.
I was anxious when buying this rubber due to reading reviews about the problems with control that some people may have when using it.
I was extremely happy when I first hit the ball with the T05, the Tenergy rubbers give a whole new feeling when hitting the ball that can't be described.
My game is primarily based around spin so this is the most important aspect for me. The spin that you can get with the T05 is amazing, if you have the adequate technique, the amount of different types of spin you can produce with the T05 is staggering. As most reviews mention, the topspin strokes you can produce with this rubber, whether they are more driven or looped, are immense and often are winners in rallies.
This racket despite being listed as the slowest out of the main 3 Tenergies is extremely fast, and very spin sensitive. If you can learn to control the speed of this rubber the strokes you can produce are extremely fast with immense amounts of spin, another strength of the Tenergy 05 not found in other rubbers; the balance between spin and speed in every shot. The control of the rubber must be addressed though, you need to have the correct technique in order to use and control this rubber effectively, and is quite spin sensitive so you need to have very good ball control in order to use this rubber with all strokes. Push shots close to the table in short-short receive are the main shot you'll need to look to remaster with this rubber, and chops aren't really an option with this rubber but if you are player primarily looking to play chops you shouldn't be buying this rubber anyway of course.
In all, if you have the technique, this is by far the best rubber I have ever tried and is absolutely lethal in topspin strokes at mid-distance from the table, an easy 10/10 if you have the technique necessary to control it.
Without a shadow of doubt the Absolute best Table Tennis Rubber I've ever used !!
Its been 3 weeks since I have been using this on my forehand side. Good so far. Nice upgrade from Donic Bluefire.
Taking some time to get used to. But good rubber. Helping me on improving my loops. Able to hit far from table with excellent control.
Very good rubber, speed and spine regular fine, if you boosted that. Recommended to pair with medium stiff and soft blades.
After 4 months with this rubber in ma lin soft carbon blade
It is a good rubber for:
Blocking, easy to attack heavy spin, speed, excellent power loop, manufacturing quality, good performance and consistency in BH probably for the shortest and most compact strokes, good feeling.
It is a bad rubber for:
FH drive is impossible to keep the ball on the table, inconsistent in some strokes, you wonder why the ball bounces out of control, sensitive to spins, feels softer than 45 degrees, you can't hit hard the services because the ball will come out from the table, difficult short services, too high angle, too high price, you pay high price to lose control in FH.
Now I understand why Chinese players do not use this rubber in FH, you cannot put energy in your arm because you will be very inconsistent, I would recommend using it in BH, I have felt more control in FH using tenergy 80.
I will return to nittaku g1 is excellent in everything at 50% of the price.
