Tenergy 05 Hard has adopted a stiffer sponge to add further power to the original Tenergy 05 rubber.

While it still maintains the incredible ‘Spring Sponge’ feel, the hard sponge responds to a stronger impact enabling more power.

• Please use Free Chack II when you apply Tenergy to a blade.
• Tenergy is a highly delicate product. We recommend you protect the rubber surface with rubber protective film after a match or practice.

Hey guys, Usually I am not reviewing any materials I been trying but Tenergy Hard changed my mind ( playing it on FH ). After being not sure if it suits my play I didnt hesitate to give it a go and I am not dissapointed. Guess it is very important if you play this rubber, you need a proper FH stroke and good legs. If you dont have this, dont try it, you will be making many unforced mistakes. Also I think its very important for reviews that people know which level you are playing. I stopped table tennis for 12 years before I was playing in the bavarian national squad and in my youth I played german championships. So I would say that I have a good technique and good legs. As I said I didnt not play for 12 years so I am coming from the speed glue area. In the beginning it was very difficult to find the right setup. I always had the memory that I usually kill more points with my forehand and now, thanks to tenergy hard it is happening again. My opponents make much more mistakes when I am playing with Tenergy Hard. The low throw angle makes it very difficult for your opponents. Countertopspin is so "easy" with this rubber coz of its hardness. Returning serves short is a pleasure. The rubber isnt effected to spin as much as Tenergy 05 for example. Blocking you to be more active but you will get used to it. Conclusion: Best rubber I tried so far. The rubber tells you immediately if you were out of position of if your stroke was too weak. I personally think it helps you to develop a proper technique. In China for example, also kids, start with super hard rubbers on forehand. I think we do this wrong in Europe. A soft rubber is very forgiving but it will not show you the consequences of wrong standing or technique. If you want to get better and you have enough to for training this rubber you should try.

Very good forehand rubber (my style: attack close to table). My Top spins are loaded with many many gears. Opponent has problem to return it. Easier to handle as Tenergy 05 but needs more physical effort. One of my top five rubbers. It‘s expensive but it‘s worth it!

Right now I am using Tenergy 05 Hard black 2.1mm on my forehand. I can not agree it has low control. It is definitely an attacking rubber, choppers will not use it nor allround players. So, I will comment about its control when attacking with loops. Coming from regular Tenergy 05 (on forehand) 05 Hard is an improvement in almost all aspects. Looping is more controlled but there is a difference, regular 05 produces a high arc while 05 Hard a much lower arc, making the ball travel faster and near the net, which gives less time to your opponent to react. That said, looping with it is like magic, ball goes exactly where you aimed at and it is also easier to control the deep. Every ball seems to land in the table, mistakes at the end line are reduced. That famous slogan “power without control is nothing” is very true, but control without power is useless in modern table tennis. A lot of rubbers, specially ESN ones, allow me to control the game with loops but if there is not enough power I will not win against more experienced players. And with most of those rubbers, trying that extra effort to kill the point lead to an increase of errors. This is where T05 hard has an edge, you can kill the points with less effort and reduced margin of errors, due to its natural higher kick and great control while looping. Any cons? Very few. It is not easy to produce slow (and short) loops because its nature is being faster than most rubbers. Despite that I can say T05 Hard has already become the best forehand rubber I have ever tried since I always struggled to kill the points with forehand. Like a soccer team making good plays but failing to convert the goal because the forward is not so good. T05 Hard came to be the Messi in the play, giving quality to the final shot. This is how I see this rubber.

Fast & Hard Rubber, Simply Spin a little above T5, this rubber is not for the beginner level.

Used on Viscaria, 2.1mm - Was very very surprised with this rubber. It is really fast and very very strong for counter hitting. Best to use on forehand and can still generate a lot of spin, if you play a wrong shot, it can be very unforgiving. For a skilled player it is a deadly weapon...
