Reviews of Butterfly Tenergy 25 (40)
Pros: spin is good, choice of 1.7/1.9/2.1, hardness 36.
Cons: too fast, non linear, heavy at 51g in 2.1, too expensive.
I (and i know alot more) thinks this is the fastest of the Tenergys. Faster than T64 by far. Wonderful close tothe table.
Just wow! What an amazing rubber. It is probably the most underrated tenergy rubbers. But I feel like this is honestly the best one you guys should try it out
First impression I think it has better ball feel comparing to T05 because of the different pimple structure. Feels like there's a spring feel effect on the pimples not only the sponge.
Really fantastic backhand rubber for blocking and punching, but it is considerably harder to loop backspin with ( unless you have good technique). It is heavy due to the wide pimples on it which could make it not good for some people. However, what i noticed most about this rubber is how great the close to the table attacking block/punch shots are. the power really opens up when you hit it flatter. I wouldn't recommend this rubber for someone who defends or likes to loop with heavy topspin, but it will be very nice for anyone who blocks and punches a lot. only my opinion so don't take it too seriously :)

I have read +ve as well as -ve comments about T25. Well there was a confusion for me whether to go for T05 instead. But finally made up my mind with T25.
I ordered a regular T25, not the FX version since I need more spin with less arc distance.
I will update once I receive the rubber in another 3 days.
Out of the Tenergy series this seems to be the least popular. Maybe because it is the heavier rubber out of the lot due to its much larger sized pimples. Comparing the T25 to T05 and T64 on a Viscaria blade for BACKHAND. The T25 unexpectedly came out as the favourite. T25 a slightly harder feel to it than T05, which is a good thing that's why it is superior than the rest when it comes to block shots. T64 feels quite soft compared to T25. [I find that when using stiff carbon blades, softer FH rubbers are way more forgiving and medium/hard rubbers for BH, NOT the other way around like some people say!] Throw angle felt a bit weird at first, less noticeable catapult effect than T05/T64. But once adjusted I feel T25 has the best arc (more closer to T05 than T64 & T80). T25 is made to excel at short distance, has a similar arc characteristics but shorter trajectory than T05. Deceptively fast rubber when you generate a bit of power. T25 excels at the short/mid game, less catapult effect on stiff carbon blade gives more control/predictability which assists in making it easier to increase the level consistency of balls on the table during short/mid game. This made sense because unless you are a high level pro and/or a predominately defensive player, the majority of your points will come from the service to short to mid game.
I found this rubber disappointing. I got 2, both on FH and BH, and I had to switch it after about 10 days... It just did not compliment my looping game at all, I thought since i like to make the occasional chop, or placement punch/block this would suit me, but it did not. This rubber was a complete flop for me, and I would not recommend it.
-Compared to T Energy 05 and 64, the pimple surface on the inside is simple massive.
-The large pimples inside help with controlling shots.
-Excellent for close to the table play as you can counter any hard hit shots easily while maintaining control but when you need to hit a little bit harder, the rubber still provides enough power.
-I am a penholder that uses Reverse-Penhold Backhand occasionally but I don't use it all the time. I was looking for a rubber that could handle flicks, counter-attacking from up close, and could handle my mediocre RBP technique. This rubber handled everything
-I had T-Energy 64 before and I honestly couldn't handle the sheer power of it so i wanted something more controlled and manageable. T-Energy 25 was the perfect solution to my RPB since I don't use it very often and when I need to use RPB, I feel confident I can counter any shots with ease.
-Excellent up close and can handle medium distance relatively well but more effort is required.
-I use 1.9mm red rubber sheet
The best rubber for blocking and fast topspin. Very suitable for the backhand.
Tested with a Stiga Maplewood NCT V
- Works well for active BH blocks & mid distance BH loops.
- Ball can be placed very accurate.
- Nice BH rubber.
Update: I recently switched to playing with Tenergy 25 on both sides, and my search is finally complete. I cannot stress how fantastic this rubber is. It plays with many gears. You can hit it softly and precisely with the hard rubber, you can generate a decent amount of spin on a short push using only the topsheet. when hitting the ball harder and swinging full strokes, this rubber has an unlimited supply of power. It doesn't always seem as fast as 05/64 because it does play like a hard rubber. If you let your arm speed work, and use your feet and hips with your swing, this rubbers speed and trajectory are unmatched.
Further, on an off-the-bounce shot or a block, the rubber just puts the ball over the net and onto the other side of the table.
It's serves surpass the 05/h3/tg2 and other quality rubbers if you learn to control the sponge and topsheet well.
This rubber is extremely underrated. Using this on both sides, I beat a player over 500 points over my rank and it felt easy. Rubber is not always the solution, but if it matches your style, it can be a good aid.
This rubber plays like a Tennis player would demand it to. Also, if you prefer chinese fh but want a little catapult, this should suffice. It is a rubber for pacing and driving.
Short Push: T80 = T25 > T05 > T64
Counterloop: T25 > T80 > T64 > T05
Brush Loop: T05 > T25 > T80 > T64
Drive: T25 > T64 > T80 > T05
Chop: T25 > T05 = T80 > T64
Lifting Underspin: T05 > T80=T25=T64
Mid-distance: T64 > T25 > T05 > T80
Control: T25 > T05=T80 > T64
Speed: T64 (less/equal) T25 > T80=T05
A lot of this has to do with technique as mentioned above.
I tested T25 1.7mm black, for ar possible replacement of mine T05 1.7mm black.
I'm playing with Yinhe 980 blade (speedy and rigid def blade) + Spinlord Dornenglanz long pips + Tenergy 05 1,7mm. I'm an allrounder and I play near the table, spinning, blocking and smashing. I'm a kind of mix between Pushblocker and Akkertrom...
One word: "Perfect"
I liked T05 very much, but I had to concede that pushes, returns, blocks where a bit delicate. I was always struggling to keep the ball on the table and not too long.
With the T25, I keep most of the great T05's qualities en I improve a lot the control for all the shots where I was struggling with T05.
Block: A lot easier with T25. I feel immediately a better control and and I'm able to vary the deepness and the placement of my shots. I can absorb the energy of the incoming loop and make a short and dead block or accelerate. Smash the incoming loop is also easier. This is a very strong point of T25.
Smash: Same. Great control that gives a lot of confidence for smashing.
Pushes: With T05, keep pushes short enough and not out of the table is a constant chalenge. With the T25, I have no more this catapult effect that insecure the pushes and I control easily the ball making pushes long or short, where I want.
Serves: Coming from T05, its easier to place the ball and keep it lower. But, I had the feeling that I was able to give a lithe bit more spin with T05. I think that the T05 is more dangerous for serves because of this ability to give more spin.
Loops: The trajectory of the ball is flatter with T25. I think that T05 is a very high throw rubber and that the T25 is a lower throw rubber. But this doesn't mean that T25 have a low throw. I will say that it' a medium throw rubber an that it's still higher than a lot of other rubbers. I also have the feeling that T25 gives a little less spin on the ball. But it's still spiny... T25 ask to pay attention to the net when T05 gives more arc and latitude to stay over the net. Personally I prefer the flatter trajectory of T25. From mid-distance, the T25 is still enough dynamic for looping balls easily.
For counter-looping near the table, I think that T25 is better than T05. I think that T05 because of his higher throw is worse than T25 for this kind of shots. With T25 on some shots as looping incoming serves or counter spinning incoming loops near the table the ball tent to be long because of the higher throw. For this shots, with a lower throw, the T25 gives me a better result.
Far from the table, the T05 gives more ease and better results, the T25 is still good but requires more energy to return balls on the table.
Throw angle: T05 = Very high T25 = Average
Spin: T05 = 9/10 T25 = 8/10
Control: T05 = 6,5/10 T25 = 9/10
Speed: T05 = 9/10 T25 = 8/10
Hardness: T05 = 7/10 T25 = 7/10
It seems that everybody have not the same opinion about the speed of this rubbers, but, in my opinion, the T25 is just a little bit less speedy that the T05. Maybe, the better control gives me this feeling?
About hardness, I had not really the feeling that T25 was a bit harder. It's only a different feel because of the bigger pips from the T25.
Conclusion: The T25 is done for me and fit perfectly my style. I liked T05 very much, but with T25 I keep most of the great qualities of T05 and he add other great qualities that are completely essential for the way I play. Adopted!
This rubber has a lot of power, but it can be difficult to control. It definitely takes getting used to. Once you get used to it, it can be very spinny with just the right amount of tackiness to make looping possible.
I have played with Galaxy Sun and Moon for some time now. Some people have said that it compares with Tenergy rubbers. The played well,good control en speed is fare. Today I played with my new Butterfly Balsa Carbo X5,with Tenergy 25 on the forehand and Sriver G3 FX on the backhand, WOW!WOW, it was a huge difference from Galaxy range. It is awesome, to begin with, the T25 has very good control for fast and harder rubber. The speed is very good en idol for play close to the table and on medium distance and I am sure it will be fine on longer range too. The Sriver G3 fx is nice and soft and WOW it gives me very good control on backhand attack and on defence. The control on chopping/backspin is fantastic. I have finally found the rubbers for my kind of game.
"This rubber is a rubber of the future" ! But the future of Butterfly and NOT the future of the players because they will all be broke buying such a super expensive price ! If you play this rubber on both sides, you'll be broke twice as fast ! Because of the price, Not worth it !
