TENERGY 05 is recommended for playing close to the table;
TENERGY 64 is for the attacker who plays for the offensive play in a middle distance.

Good and Fast rubber - but durability is very poor and hence not good for beginners
Coming from a T05 on FH, and I can say that T64 is a little bit faster, has a little bit more control, but has also a little bit less spin. About the hardness, I felt the same. Overall is a superb rubber, I tried it both on BH and FH, and it works well on both.
This rubber, is a rubber that is meant for at least intermediate players. I use Tenergy 64 on my forehand and Tenergy 05 on my backhand, and if you want more spin, go with the Tenergy 05, but more speed is definitely the Tenergy 64. Also, in the very beginning, the rubber has an uncomfortable uncontrollable feel to it, but as you play more, the potential of the rubber will show and your play will become much better and faster.
Really fast, but rather difficult to control if you are still developing your strokes. The sound is awesome; I would say slightly louder than the 05.
The throw angle of 64 is lower than 05 and 80 due to sparsely placed pips, which makes 64 less effective in looping. 64 has longer pips for extra speed useful in smashing.
Top Sheet Thickness: Average (1.7mm).
Surface Thickness: Thin (0.71mm).
Pip Length: Long (0.99mm).
Pip Width: Average (1.68mm).
Pip Spacing: Sparse (0.96mm).
Sponge Hardness: Medium.
Top Sheet Hardness: Hard.
Weight (Max): Medium-Heavy (47g, 0.232g/cm^2).
Very good backhand rubber. I think it shines in fast drive/counters from close or mid distance. Also very good blocking. It has low, linear trajectory. It is also very spinny, but throw angle is lower than other tensors I think. Spin and loop are also very good - you can really feel the ball dig in the sponge. It's pretty fast - I think you can play very comfortably in mid distance.
Edit: I got 2.1mm sponge
Very spinny and fast yet feels softer than T05. Does not react to incoming spin as much as 05 does. Effortless loops from mid-distance. Not for beginners as it requires good touch and lots of practice.
Reference rubber. Feels softer, slower and more control than 05 as there is larger distance between pips. Same rubber and same sponge as 05. As all Tenergies the rubber last quite long but falls apart in edges quite easily.
Use on all wood blade (all ~ off-) u will love it... Like butterfly petr korbel, oh sang eun, or hadraw vk..
I recently switched from H3 Neo to a non-tacky FH rubber (I play modern defense) and tried both T05 and T64 as my FH rubbers in 2.1. Here are my observations:
Speed: T64>T05. Slightly faster, has a more noticeable speed-glue effect.
Spin: T05=T64. Very close. Same grippy topsheet, same sponge, but different size and spacing of pips. As a defender I wanted the spiniest rubber possible and on paper T05 has a higher spin potential but IMO they are pretty much identical. If you want to see T64's spin potential, just look at Mizutani or CCY's videos and the ridiculous spin they generate with it.
Control: T64>T05. T05 is more sensitive to the incoming spin so IMO serve receives are more challenging.
Throw: T05>T64. Due to T64's stronger catapult, the throw appears to be lower and the rubber feels bouncier (i.e. watch out as the first dozen or so strokes won't even land on the table). Chopping (for me) is a lot easier with T64, again due to its throw, although I don't chop a lot with FH.
Feeling: T64>T05 as it feels softer and is more forgiving. T05 feels like a boosted H3 Neo that's been played for a while, i.e. lost its tack but stayed grippy.
Looping: T64=T05. No issue with either although being less sensitive to spin plays in T64's favor. Either one easily lifts backspin and plays close to the table. Understandably T64 has more power and spin away from the table. The ball heavily dips right after the bounce and the opponent would often miss it entirely. I can also loop from under the table, ie. Xu Xin style. T05 is VERY capable as well but it requires loops that are hit "just right".
Blocking: T64=T05, although some would argue that T64 has an advantage.
Serves: T05>T64. This is where T05 shines due to 64 being bouncy. I can still do very spiny serves w/ T64 though.
Overall T64 is my go-to FH rubber but you cannot go wrong with either one.
