Butterfly Tenergy 05
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.

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.

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.
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.
