Reviews of Butterfly Tenergy 05-FX (67)
Added needed control to my backhand. Working well for flicks and blocking, have to strike a little harder away from the table. Very happy with it.
Blade : Cornilleau Hinotec OFF+ carbon . 1.9mm. black. 43g. BackHand (BH).
First impression : very similar to Rasanter R42. High dwell time, "click" sound when playing mid distance. Quite high/medium throw angle, not so speedy, but faster than TSP Ventus spin (this one has the lowest sponge hardness, it is like slippers !). Good in block, good for chikita, but not fast.
If you are looking for a secure rubber for spin at mid distance, T05 is better. If you play all-round, T05-FX is maybe a good choice, but pricy. Maybe better to consider R42 which is very closed to T05-FX and less expensive. Not convinced.
So... shockingly, I've been taking good care of my paddle these last few years. At times, I've played everyday... other times, once a month or less. I've had these rubbers on my paddle for the last four years. I've been using the Butterfly Rubber Film, and then placing the paddle in a paddle cover. I kept hearing that these will dry up in no time... but my paddle is still in great condition, and I don't see a need to replace the rubber yet. Maybe next year. By the way, these pads have been far more stickier and than other paddles I've tried... so much so... that I have a hard time playing with anything else than these. Also these have enough bounce for me to reflect the ball back on the back hand with a slight push. I use these on my forehand and also the backhand.

I am a modern defender, i use a buttefly defensive blade with tenergy 05fx and long pips cloud and fog 3. This rubber is for intermediate to advanced players. Many gears but the only shot which is difficult is the punch. Great for picking up backspin. Nice high throw on the ball as well. Alot of money. And the price keeps going up. As much as i love this rubber i don't want to keep paying over the top prices.
Ratings for 2.1mm. Played for 1 year with Tenergy 80 on forehand and Tenergy 05 FX on backhand of Timo Boll ZLF. Tenergy 05 FX is a softer version of Tenergy 05. There is less spin and the speed is about the same. The softness adds more dwell time. Top gear of this rubber is not as crazy as Tenergy 05 or Tenergy 80. The rubber will bottom out when you hit hard or from far away because it's too soft, the number of gears is lower. The extra dwell time allows you to control blocks better, but this is a bouncy rubber like other tenergies so the short game is not better than harder tenergies. It weighs 45g. I prefer harder rubbers because of extra gears they provide. You can get away with worse technique with this rubber because of extra dwell time, but it will not help you in the long run if you are trying to improve. Still, if you are into soft rubbers on stiffer blades perhaps, this can work. The price is way too high. Enjoy playing!
Great alternative for players who think Tenergy 05 is so hard and not easy to control. It has the same great spin potential as 05 but is not so fast, is not too bouncy. Better overall control and easier short play and play above the table.
This fx not suit me. Not today. Maybe onother day.. Feel like dead rubber. Prefer fh t05, bh t64, feel alive. Just my personal view.
This is a very good backhand rubber. But to make the most of the rubber you must have a very good technique.
The rubber is fast, spinny and has a lot of control.
Going through my 2nd sheet of this rubber, I can say that it is for players who have experience with applying topspin. This is an awesome rubber,I strongly recommend it :D

I'm really impressed by this rubber, playing it in 1.7 mm/FH. It's fast (maybe a bit too fast for me, tbh) but easily controllable. I'd say its base speed is not very high but when you hit harder it gets really speedy, especially away from the table. The amount of spin I can generate with it is tremendous, got no other rubber like this. It's absolutely not for beginners, though, you have to have your angles and movements right. I find it quite hard to lift backspin shots. I'll keep this rubber in mind for when I play better.
