Tenergy 05 Hard has adopted a stiffer sponge to add further power to the original Tenergy 05 rubber.
While it still maintains the incredible ‘Spring Sponge’ feel, the hard sponge responds to a stronger impact enabling more power.

Good Spin only
not good for smashing and close the table drive very hard to tame.
Impressions after the first workout: the transition from 05 to 05hard - no addiction, all in the table. Rotation more. Catapult smaller. You play shortly - flies shortly, but if you invest - everything is take-out. About a miracle: the sensitivity of the coming rotation is less than that of 05, it is easier to block on the left and fold back. Suddenly, but more control than 05, the rotation is longer than 05. The first move is easier. Tops from the table easier. So far - this is better than I played. Today, all hung up from the rotation on the feed and hanging tops.
I am using an OFF- blade, Limba-Ayous custom similar to the OSP Virtuoso -, close to the table play. Changed from T05 to T05H on the forehand Max. Overall impression is positive as I have better control, blocking and smashing, loops and no loss of spin on serves. Great for pushes long or short as you can activate the sponge with short hard chop for a deadly low spin push. Very linear the ball goes were you want and leaves the rubber quicker then T05 putting greater pressure on the opponent. Again I am a close to the table player using an OFF-blade.
Compared to 05, it is harder and more direct. Looping angle is slightly more open, but can generate a lot more power away from table. The rubber is less sensitive to spin, and is similar or slower speed on more passive strokes like block so you get some more control. I like the more direct feeling, but there is less feeling and dwell. On forehand, you get more control looping close to table with fine contact, and ball always goes deep. I actually also really enjoyed this on backhand, especially for counter hitting. If you enjoy more direct feeling and quick bounce, you may like it. Otherwise if you are thinking of switching from 05, I don't know if it is worth it, unless maybe you play at a high level and really need the small extra enhancements.

Very hard. Have to have good fundamentals. I really enjoy it on a lightish alc blade. Nice looping capabilities. Good return of service.
I play with hard, Chinese, tacky rubbers only. I find tensor rubbers too bouncy for the short game and unpredictable when I need to change the speed of my shots. T05H is very predictable and linear. Some adjustment is needed for the short game, but it plays a lot better than any other tensor rubber I have tried. It is fast when you hit hard. It ranks somewhere between T05 and Hurricane 3 Neo in terms of control, speed, forgiveness, the technique and the physical condition required. Suits soft or flexible blades. I tried it on a Viscaria and felt nice. Its grip is superb when brand new. There is a demand for hybrid rubbers and T05H does a very good in that respect.
The T-05 Hard allows you to slice it very thin and loop from under the table close to the net which you can't with any other non-Chinese rubbers.
Used on Viscaria, 2.1mm - Was very very surprised with this rubber. It is really fast and very very strong for counter hitting. Best to use on forehand and can still generate a lot of spin, if you play a wrong shot, it can be very unforgiving. For a skilled player it is a deadly weapon...
I normally play 05 on both sides of a (custom blade similar in playing characteristics to Viscaria). As most of 05 users, I had to try this rubbers as soon as it come out. At first you will feel like the rubber is slow. Give it couple days and it will break in and be really fast. I feel as it is an improvement to my forehand side with greater touch at the table and servis game. On the backhand I still preffer regular 05. It definitely has for me slightly different feel as 05. But I really like that you can play short game (like with Chinese rubbers) yet of the table it is easier to play with than Chinese rubbers. Overall I think you need to wait about a week to really see how the rubber plays. One thing that it lacks is a CLICK, it has a totally different sounds than regular 05, some ppl will be ok with that some now. Overall I feel it is great Forehand rubber.
