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.

I play with hard, Chinese, tacky rubbers only. I find tensor rubbers too bouncy for the short game and unpredictable when I need to change the speed of my shots. T05H is very predictable and linear. Some adjustment is needed for the short game, but it plays a lot better than any other tensor rubber I have tried. It is fast when you hit hard. It ranks somewhere between T05 and Hurricane 3 Neo in terms of control, speed, forgiveness, the technique and the physical condition required. Suits soft or flexible blades. I tried it on a Viscaria and felt nice. Its grip is superb when brand new. There is a demand for hybrid rubbers and T05H does a very good in that respect.

Compared to 05, it is harder and more direct. Looping angle is slightly more open, but can generate a lot more power away from table. The rubber is less sensitive to spin, and is similar or slower speed on more passive strokes like block so you get some more control. I like the more direct feeling, but there is less feeling and dwell. On forehand, you get more control looping close to table with fine contact, and ball always goes deep. I actually also really enjoyed this on backhand, especially for counter hitting. If you enjoy more direct feeling and quick bounce, you may like it. Otherwise if you are thinking of switching from 05, I don't know if it is worth it, unless maybe you play at a high level and really need the small extra enhancements.

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.

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...

Impressions after the first workout: the transition from 05 to 05hard - no addiction, all in the table. Rotation more. Catapult smaller. You play shortly - flies shortly, but if you invest - everything is take-out. About a miracle: the sensitivity of the coming rotation is less than that of 05, it is easier to block on the left and fold back. Suddenly, but more control than 05, the rotation is longer than 05. The first move is easier. Tops from the table easier. So far - this is better than I played. Today, all hung up from the rotation on the feed and hanging tops.
