There are 7 users using the Butterfly Tenergy 05 Hard.
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.

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.

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.

Less dwell time. Bit more spin than the earlier 05. But hard to control.

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.

I am using an OFF- blade, Limba-Ayous custom similar to the OSP Virtuoso -, close to the table play. Changed from T05 to T05H on the forehand Max. Overall impression is positive as I have better control, blocking and smashing, loops and no loss of spin on serves. Great for pushes long or short as you can activate the sponge with short hard chop for a deadly low spin push. Very linear the ball goes were you want and leaves the rubber quicker then T05 putting greater pressure on the opponent. Again I am a close to the table player using an OFF-blade.
