Heyyyyy Guys! Here's our latest full and comprehensive review of the hotly anticipated Tenergy 05 Hard rubber by Butterfly! This is the harder sponged version of the popular Butterfly Tenergy 05.
Dan is joined by Tom in the TableTennisDaily Studio where they give the rubber a full in depth analysis on how it performs!

I would be probably more disciplined with T05H on forehand because hard sponge requires lower margin of hitting style than T05. With T05 I am tend to do lazy spins. It doesn't matter where you contact with the ball, T05 always handles it. This is making my game loose, not disciplined. But yeah, not cheap...
I have played with this rubber for a month. I agree the rubber shines when you hit through the ball. This is great close to the table counter loops etc. Looping far from the table is slightly difficult because you have to hit through the ball for it to keep the speed. I hope dignics 05 will help that area
I have played Rakza 7, Tenergy 05 normal and the hard version. As you can see in the video, the Tenergy 05 normal is much more sensitive to incoming spin. The hard version is less sensitive to incoming spin. Rakza 7 has less spin then the Tenergy's and plays very allround. If you have a very good technique, the 05 hard is the way to go. If your backhand is less then your forehand (which is the case by a lot of players I encounter) don't get carried away and choose a safe rubber which suits your style.
11:54 disagree with that assessment - a harder rubber means the stroke has to be more forward than upward brushing.
Most of the soft rubbers allow a more upward brushy stroke but lower quality shot as you said later
I find it funny that butterfly have now released a "New" tenergy 05, even though I can guarantee the tenergy 05 pro version the Pros have access to is the same thing, this is the one element of table tennis I hate with a passion, the secrecy. When we see the pros and are told they use so and so, we buy it, try it and dump it, why, because they have access to something else, the pro version. So now when I see the pro hit bullets I can't help but think, hmm, another pro rubber we don't have access to. A joke really. DHS did it for years, now we are all bamboozled with provincial and national versions, oh yes, and fakes, it's all a joke and the joke is on us, so I'm guessing they now have a new secret rubber for the pros so they can dump the old tech on us, just wait and see, tenergy 05 extra. Don't even get me started on blades.
Just play, no bull.
Thanks for the review.
Personally, I liked your reviews more when they were shorter. Now your videos are at least 100% longer but they provide only 10%, or even less, of additional information.
You two should go back to the voice-over-style. Please!
I can,t help but feeling Butterfly is losing the plot ie. creating a product competing with its other product namely T64! Wonder how Butterfly is going to market it. The explanation used to be in terms of hardness: T05, T80fx, T80 then T64.
I feel that this review is biased towards showing more fancy attacking shots. Sure, those are a big part of the modern game, provide some fast and cool action and probably attract more viewers too. Nonetheless, I find it very important to show how a rubber performs in the boring short game. You would do well spending a couple of minutes on it instead of the two seconds summary at the end. Actually, your T05 review was much more balanced in that regard - you spent quite some time on touches, serving and returns.
To me, it seems that T05 hard suits more to a heavy looper. Someone with a medium-medium long drive style. It is probably not going to suit a player with short drive style. I use Nittaku fastarc p1, will give a more detailed comment right on this thread once i get my hands on a T05 hard. Thanks for the review Dan and tom, as usual informative.
I'll probably keep posting this till it happens haha

(And thoughts on opening up the potential for different blades for ITTF)
Test out their rubbers, maybe throw some tenergy 05/ hard on it, could even say its your most expensive review to date!
and Any top 10 player and their view on the blade, would they be interested in moving away from just 85% wood blades!
I'm liking this more conversational style of review. Gives Tom a chance to give his opinion as well. Perhaps the fact that they're comparing two different rubbers also lends itself well to this style of review.
I played with 05hard on FH and 05 on BH on Viscaria FL now for a month and find the combination very good. I find the 05 hard top sheet seems to grip the ball better and helps keep good control and , despite lower trajectory and higher speed, the ball tends to land on the other side. The 05hard also seems to produce more spin causing problems for the opponent. I agree however that, with 05hard you have to be more precise on the blade angle, pull on the topspin and play with confidence. Very good on serve and OK on short game.
nothing to be excited about, it is difficult to control for majority , only for elite players. Guys are reacting as to any new thing but then in a game it wont forgive your subtle mistakes. It has no dwell at all
I tried it in my club as my practice partner brought it. He put it on Jun Mizutani blade and that set up was crazy fast for me. The balls just went of the table . On thing i noted was if i got the stroke correct the spin was crazy on the ball, but then sadly i don't play that strong every ball. Certainly a rubber who have decent technique and play strong game and don't depend on rubber for forgiveness. As they say "With great power comes great responsibility" :)
Definitely a bh rubber, like Tom said. +, People generally like the tacky rubber on the fh, it would 1: be alot to give up, and 2: it's good twiddlable when you get into a smash lob rally, you can add even more power with the 05 hard rubber. Pretty nice actually!
Hi dan (tabletennisdaily) I love your videos. I see them almost daily, especially when you play against professional players and you lose hahaha, but you try the truth. I write this because I am 15 years old and I love this sport, but I live in Venezuela I have a lot of time training and my dream is to represent my country! but I do not even have my own racket because of the economic situation in the country! You could do me the great favor of giving me some used rubber, at least I would appreciate it very much and even more if you would give me a shovel!
Why celebrate LGBT Pride? The history of oppression for LGBT persons has centered around notions of appropriateness/normality and invisibility. LGBT persons have often lost their families, their friends, their employment and their lives because others have deemed the way they love to be inappropriate or abnormal. Our society has a strong sense of gendered normality: Men do x and women do Y. Indeed, who we are allowed to love has historically been linked to that which is deemed appropriate for our gender. When an individual chooses to live with integrity, as an authenticate person, despite the societal dangers of doing so, they exemplify Pride; that is worthy of celebration. The freedom possessed by todays lgbt students was made possible by the courage and strength of individuals who refused to feel shame for who they were and Who lived authentically and openly, winning straight allies along the way. Instead of lamenting the paucity of role models living authentically when we, as educators, were in school, perhaps we are called to be the role model we wished we had had! Now, and every day, is the time for Pride!

May 22nd is Education Support Professionals Day!!
As educators, we know the crucial role played by the thousands of paraprofessionals, office workers, bus drivers, custodians and maintenance staff in our schools and/or Community Colleges. In fact, it would be difficult to imagine a school going for one day without ESPs.
When we talk about strengthening our schools, we need to strengthen everyone who works within them. Along with recruiting and retaining quality teachers, we must recruit and retain quality education support professionals. To do that, it certainly means providing decent wages and benefits to the people who spend their days making sure our students are safe, well fed and learning.
