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!

Tenergy is just a fantastic rubber!although the extremely high price makes playing with it an expensive habit there´s nothing to say about how well it works for my offensive playstile. Tenergy 05 is one of the best forehand rubbers I´ve ever used, possibly the best! If you´re a begginer or a medium-low level player and are still learning you´re strokes I wouldn´t recomend this rubber, but if you already have a good technique and have 75$ GO FOR IT!!!
There are tons of reviews out there, so you probably get the idea. It's very good for looping against any ball at any distance. The sponge and topsheet are dense - when you brush, you can feel the ball dig into all of it before it explodes out. It's fairly bouncy, so touch and soft push may need adjustment as well as close range looping. Because it is so bouncy and sensitive to spin, you shouldn't do any passive strokes. This rubber is 100% for looping/top spin.
Using T05 on my forehand, red 2.1mm. The rubber is great for opening loops, counter loops, etc. I find that the rubber generates loads of spin even with minimal contact. The downside is that it is sensitive to in-coming spin so you need to be prepared when blocking drives. I would recommend this for forehand only. Well worth the price.
Love this on my forehand. Super spinny and fast loops. Have used this on Timo Boll ALC and Freitas ALC. I have also tried it on Garaydia ALC. I could not control the blade/rubber on the Garaydia, but that seems to be the blade more than anything.
Really good rubber, good feeling and good speed. I used this on a TBS forehand. You'll have effortless strokes when you use this on forehand. Well unfortunately this rubber didn't improve me because of so much effortless strokes. I'll recommend it in backhand as the chinese players do. If you want to improve your game maybe you'll have to switch chinese rubber at forehand. Not a pro here but you know I'm basing on my experiences.
It's easier to play than I thought. I play it in 1.7 on my FH on a kevlar blade. It's way livelier than the T05FX and still controllable. The amount of spin I can create is just brutal, while it's still not really reactive to incoming spin. I like it on my Donic Kevplay, it's a great fit and I can happily say I found the perfect match for that blade.
I have no problem with this rubber! It works better than anything else I found for my style and dimensions. PROS: good at everything. Superb control if you are accustomed to the high throw . Can be used on back or forehand CONS: Haven't really found any.....maybe not as fierce attack as Hurricane III national blue sponge, but much more pleasant for me to use.
Some people say that this is too reactive to incoming spin, but I think that it's fine. It's more reactive than 64 and 80 yes, but not as reactive as the the H3 Neo.
P/S: I used the 05 and H3 on two different blades, so the comparison might not be as accurate.
