FH : Hurricane 3 Neo 41 degree 2.2mm
BH: Tenergy 80 2.1mm
So Ive been using the Tenergy 80 for a few months now, which was a transition from the Tenergy 05.
Tenergy 80 is faster than the 05, this is noticeable close to the table and at mid distance . The ball shoots off the blade quicker, and the trajectory is more linear. The spin is a little less than the 05 , which is especially noticeable for slower loops close to the table . Away from the table, the difference is less noticeable.
This rubber is excellent on the backhand , especially for backhand flicks & topspins. Because of the straighter trajectory, over the table the BH shots have an almost punching-like effect that makes it difficult to be returned. When the rubber is fully engaged, it gives a responsive clicky sound which I liked .
One contention I had with the Tenergy 05 was that lifting backspin was difficult especially close to the net because of the high throw angle, which meant you had to keep the angle closed. The result is a small margin for error where you have to both lift the backspin by brushing up , but keep the angle closed. With the Tenergy 80 , it is easier to lift backspin imo with the lower throw angle and it feels less responsive to spin in general .
The transition from 05 to 80 felt very natural , its like the 05 but easier to use, less sensitive to spin, with a little more speed and a little less spin on slow brushing strokes. It doesnt have the signature catapult effect of the 05, so the sudden-ness is lost. Instead it has a more balanced speed throughout.
Overall very satisfied with Tenergy 80 for the BH . Only contention is I wish it had a tad more spin . Might try the Dignics 05 in the future, but currently very satisfied!
If you have any questions, feel free to ask . Cheers!

IT IS REALLY fast when you hit the ball hard and clean!!
Pushing close to the table will require an adjustment due to the Spring Sponge's propensity to pop the ball up (though a lot of backspin is generated). The main limitation I found with this rubber is power loops on the backhand side are difficult to execute close to the table due to the springiness of the sponge but work great away from the table. I also had a few hits with it on the forehand side as well and also works well there with 3rd balls being a bit easier to execute compared to backhand. I briefly tried T80 with a 7-ply Carbon blade but found it played much better on a 5-ply OFF wood blade as I found it to be too bouncy on the Carbon blade, though this could also be to do with my level.
Overall a very solid rubber and good introduction to the Tenergy series. T80 is great for attacking short balls but when those fail, your rallies and game winners will come from mid/away from the table. I would recommend this to intermediate to advanced players who aren't particularly fussy but want a stable rubber that gives them that extra kick. T80 is many ways better than its FX counterpart as it offers far greater spin, speed and more gears at the cost of slightly worse blocking, pushing and control.
A cut sheet (normal sized Stiga head) weighs 46g which is a bit heavier than the FX at 43g and classic Sriver at 42g. I'd put the hardness of T80 between the two being harder than FX but a bit softer than Sriver.
I played with this on a 5-ply OFF blade - Stiga Eternity VPS.
My playstyle is backhand dominated two-winged shakehand looper.

The closest rubber to Tenergy 05 out of all rubbers. The slightly softer top sheet of 80 makes it less sensitive to spin, which is better for pushing and blocking. Slightly less dense pips and softer top sheet gives a slightly lower throw angle, but makes it easier in counter looping because the racket angle can be more open. The speed of 05 and 80 is very similar, but 80 takes a more direct trajectory (higher horizontal speed) due to lower throw angle.
