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.

Reviews of Butterfly Tenergy 05 (191)
There are enough reviews of Tenergy 05, so, this is just (maybe contraditory :) one more.
Tenergy 05 (2.0mm) paired with a Xiom Hibi O J-Pen blade.
I disagree with many reviews here which says it's a hard-to-use rubber. I believe if you are used to medium-hard rubbers, you won't have much problems adapting to Tenergy 05. After all, any rubber requires time to adapt, and Tenergy is no exception. Don't expect to change your rubber and get your best shots in the first training session, it could be harder, maybe if you play with very soft rubbers. So, to my review.
- It's a fast rubber, so as any other fast rubber, you will miss many shots on the beginning, until you adapt your strokes.
- It's fast but still not 'bouncy' as tensor rubbers, which is a characteristic I liked a lot (at least comparing it with rasanter R47, which I tried before).
- I really love the playability of this rubber close to the table and 'mid-range (let's say 2/3 steps away from table).
- I found it harder to generate power far from the table, but I'm a close-range player, so, it didn't bother me
- It is quite easy to add spin to the ball, but well, it is also very susceptible to opponent's spin, which needed some adaptation on the first weeks, specifically on pushes.
- I like a lot blocking with it, but it requires some adaptation too giving the racket angle needed.
Overall, it provided me the spin/power I was lacking with MarkV and the 40+ balls in exchange for some time to adapt.
Anyway, for me and my game, Tenergy fit very well, and I didn't have any problems adapting to it other than I was going to have adapting to any different rubber. Having problems only with shots too far from the table, which I can't say it's a rubbers fault, because my game itself is close-range, and I don't play much away from the table.
It doesn't last though. I play about 2/3 times a week, and after 5/6 months I can already feel it needs to be changed.
Nothing extraordinary. The rubber is not long lasting and you may find a similar rubber with cheaper price.
I went from Yasaka Rakza X to Tenergy 05 - 1.9mm on my forehand and i'm happy i did. The switch was quite easy and i noticed a lot of extra spin and speed. Topspins have a huge variety if you have the proper skills, however it is quite sensitive to incoming spin. It's not an easy sheet to play with, but if you know what you are doing, you will give your opponent a hard time
A very good topspin to topspin rubber close to medium distance looping. But not the best for playing slow stroke especialy when u play with long pips opponent. Heavy price tag. T05 are very good rubber but in real short game, majority players does not need this rubber. More suit pro players that has very fast hand.
Just forget this rubber. For my style i prefer rubber like baracuda, easy to stroke in short distance, easy to drive n attack underspin ball.
If you are a professional player, this is the rubber for you. If you are a club level player, this is NOT the rubber for you.
Pros: Amazing rubber for looping at mid distance. Great for flicking and starting rallies. Decent at blocking. Its a looping machine and generates a lot of spin. BUT has a trade off (see below).
Cons: Very very sensitive to incoming spin. You dont do a serve return with this rubber. You flick or loop to get the rally started. There is always a trade off. This rubber has no control. Your technique has to be perfect (hence a professional player)
You can't smash the ball and end rallies with this rubber (unless you are using the max thickness) which has no control close to the table. Trade offs again.
It is very expensive for a club level player. I can buy 2 Rakza7 sheets (which is better performance to price ratio IMO) for 1 tenergy sheet.
Secret to beating the Tenergy players in my club. Generate a lot of diff spin mixed with diff lengths, it is hard for tenergy players to control spin. They try and loop everything, or go defensive and you attack. Do not try and loop with them. Dont play to their strengths, but expose their (tenergy) weakness. Variation with high spin, and the tenergy players are out of their element - cant loop all the time and it becomes unforgiving for them. I think JO Waldner would easily dismantle tenergy pros with his ALL+ Round game.
Works great, but definitely over rated, have tried rubbers just as good for half the price.

I played Tenergy 05 for about 1.5 years. I used it on Timo Boll ZLF blade and Timo Boll ZLC blade. I think Tenergy 05 is the best Tenergy. I like the feeling a lot more than Tenergy 05 FX. 2.1 weighs 49g. I have tried 1.9, but didn't find more control. It takes a long time to get used to Tenergy because the catapult effect is non linear - I found you have to change the racket angle a lot depending on how fast you brush the ball when looping. If you are able to close the racket angle almost flat and brush the ball with high speed then the ball will fly out with excellent spin. When you are on your A game, this rubber will deliver winners, but if you are tired or your mind is not in the game this rubber will punish you. A lot of people use this rubber without knowing how to use it effectively because they see so many pros use it. Avoid putting this on stiff blades, even pros don't do this. I like this for backhand in 2.1 because you can do flicks over table easily and loops behind the table. On forehand I find this rubber is best mid distance, but I prefer to play closer to the table. Like others have said, this rubber is amazing on looping and flicks, but everything else like chopping, blocking or pushing is just okay. You need to have excellent touch control, which takes a long time to develop.
17-06-2018:-Amazing rubber,but not easy to use if you are just recreational player who does not like to do hours of practice drills.Flat hits will always go out-very bouncy.Even high balls have to be looped...not hit flat.But if you loop drive.....boy ...the ball is grabbed by the rubber and looped in a lovely arc--beautiful to see,great sensation and feeling....just admire your shot...lol.Short game is not easy.Chop/push is below the quality offered by Rakza 7...or goldarc 8.Underspin serve is too spinny....opponent look at their blade to see if the ball was wet...lol...I love it.
The best rubber for distance shoot but it is the most expensive rubber. Costing almost to a mid grade car tire. Unless you are paid professional table tennis like Xin Xu or Ma Long. If money is not the issue then go ahead and enjoy it. Less only 3 - 6 months!
One of the best rubbers out there! Has great combination of speed and spin, experienced players will be able to control it very well, has many gears and very high throw angle, either smashing the ball or frictioning with the rubber will produce high speeds and the later one lots of spin. Using two of it with a Timo Boll ALC will create a powerful combination, also works really well with a tamca5000 blade (super high speed) slower blades tend to not give a good feel on the ball so I would not recommend alongside. Overall it is for high level players, not for beginners, would totally recommend.
A few years ago I made the mistake of switching to Tenergy when I was still a beginner. It caused me a lot of trouble at first. I couldn't control, it was too fast, and overall I felt like I was wasting such a good rubber lol.
I did improve my technique and get used to it, however. After a few weeks, as an intermediate player who didn't have very good technique, almost all of my shots would land on the table no matter how I hit them. It's a superb rubber. Great spin, speed and control. A little too heavy too.
The durability was excellent too, as the rubber lasted me almost a year, (the rubber had actually mostly worn off, but I could still do everything with it).
Of course this rubber is best suited for players who know what they are doing, as there is nothing this rubber can't do, but don't make the same mistake I made if you're a beginner. :)
This rubber is very good for people who like to chop or have a lot of spin(topspin,backspin,underspin,sidespin) on their serves (pendulum,tomahawk,etc).It also produces good speed and great control.Personally,I think that the tenergy series is one of the best rubbers out there.I would highly recommend it to advanced players that are at pro stage to take it for tournaments and other events!
Amazing rubber. Good amount of spin and speed. Very hard to play against. Consistent and better for European style of play. Good for FH and BH. Tested on Stiga infinity VPS V blade.
Great and already possible to say legendary rubber. High speed and awesome spin potential. What is quite surprising is that I have never feel that Tenergy rubbers would be highly sensitive for incoming spin. The true is that you have to play actively!
If you are very fit and train very often then this rubber can be fun. Otherwise it is better to play a more controlled rubber
Just got 2 T05 on second hand. 2,1 mm 4 months of use. I play with Rasanter R47, wich I find great.
But I feel like T05 is another level of play. I'm not going to specifie every aspect of the game. It's just that I feel no weakness with this rubber! I'm very confident in every shot!!! Incredible feeling... Sad that I didn't try this one years ago....
Tenergy 05 is simply the best pure looping rubber in the world even 10 years after its introduction. It's also still the world standard for non-Chinese professionals and aspiring professional players. The first time I looped with T05 it brought a huge smile to my face, it's a special and unique rubbber indeed. It's fast, but not crazy fast, and has an extremely high throw angle which coupled with its bouncy sponge and grippy topsheet create a perfect looping machine. However, the high throw angle and bounciness that make it such a great looping rubber also make it more challenging to use in the short game. Pushes are easier to pop up high or go long and service return can be difficult unless you are experienced in reading spin. That's why this rubber is more recommended for advanced to pro level players as they can easily mitigate this rubbers weaknesses through ability and practice while fully taking advantage of its outrageous spin and loop potential. Highly recommended for advanced looping attackers.
