Fantastic rubber. Plays really linear similar to Tenergy 05 but a lot more controlled because it's not so fast.
I really wonder that there are not more players using it cause everybody wants to play Tenergy 05 but most of them have to recognize, that they are not able to control the speed of it. So try out Adidas P5. Looping against backspin - very easy with a lot of spin, countering, blocking counter loops - awesome even chopping is also very easy. Short game - easy to control. Serves - fantastic also flicks are very easy. Use it on both sides in 2.0. For me it is the perfect rubber.

just bought this rubber in black and using it on forehand,,,my initial rating would be that its a nice light weight med hard sponge rubber,
the rubber has kind of frosted like a chinese rubber..
will add my review again by using it for quite some time

P5 is the first tensor I've used where everything clicks into place on my forehand side. It has very little of the classic tensor bounciness in the short game, it isn't uncontrollably fast at the top end, and the sponge is medium hardness with a linear power delivery.
While dealing with those problems, it also brings really, really good spin, and a useful high throw angle which makes looping a real pleasure. It's even good at blocking.
A top rubber, but it's not as easy to find as some other brands, and prices are very high if you buy them from the big-name TT websites. I'm in the UK, but I have to order internationally or pay £45 - it's not worth that much cash.

P5 is a great option out there. I personally use it on a Xiom Stradivarius blade and like it, but would prefer T05FX. I love T05FX and have found it to be my best rubber on my stradivarius, spirit and maze. I use the strat as it has plenty of speed, near retarted spin and control like I was throwing the ball by hand. I use Adidas though to spread the popularity as TT in the US is undernoticed, and getting a big player like Adidas in the game would benefit us all. They have the resources to do amazing things so we need to show them that the market is there to sell in. I prefer P5 to Tenergy 05 regular because the throw is plenty high to lift anything, feels easy, yet i never launch off of table. I think tenergy wins in durability, I can go 6 months strong on tenergy but this is wearing down slightly faster, though still tougher than almost all rubbers out there. It may not sound like it, but it is great, but it is most comperable to the tenergy family and everything sounds meh next to tenergy. tenergy is to this generation of players what crack was to whitney.
