Summary: the Tenergy 19 is a controllable offensive rubber that has a higher arc, is slower, slightly spinnier and has a softer feel with more ball feeling/dwell time in direct comparison with the famous Tenergy 05. Overall it reminds a little bit of the Nittaku Fastarc G1. Visual impression: t19 has a slightly more glossy appearance than t05 and you can easily see the name-giving pimple code 219 that has very thin and narrowly arranged pimples, which is the obvious difference to the other Tenergy rubbers. The topsheet feels very grippy but still less than Dignics. Sound: with topspin and smash shots you can hear a distinct sound that reminds a little of the good old speed glue era. It is much more perceptible than with t05 and you feel like little child when the cracking sound appears and the winner shot lands counters: no real surprises here. It’s an offensive rubber. You might already notice that the rubber is a little slower and less direct and the trajectory is shorter than t05. topspin: the Main department of t19! You will very soon recognize that t19 feels different to t05. It feels a little softer, has a higher arc, less speed and therefore will land less deep on the table. The good thing about it is, that all these attributes will give you more forgiveness and safety for your shots.topspinning opponents pushes is quite easy, but not as fast and therefore less deadly than with t05. It might be that you experience a big kick which seemed a little uncontrollable when you hit hard, which reminded me a little bit of the Tibhar evolution EL-S. BUT: it was not as extreme and as early as with the EL-S!Please don’t get me wrong here: t19 is still a very fast offensive rubber that should not be used by beginners or intermediate players. It’s just a comparison with t05, which can be seen as a very fast and demanding rubber!countertopspins: in recent days we’re seeing more and more rubbers that offer very grippy and spinny topsheets with a high arc and a not too long trajectory. In my mind, the special reason is the countertopspins quite close to table. Famous examples were Dignics 09C, Dignics 05 and other grippy/ sticky hybrid rubbers. The new member of this category now with a medium hard sponge is the t19. Due to its properties of high arc, shorter trajectory and grippy topsheet it performs very well in countering the opponents topspins. short game: the grippiness is very good for spinny short game and pushes. Some people on the other hand might struggle with the high dwell time and grippiness. Being able to give a lot of spin always means, that the rubber will also be spin sensitive!Flicks: spinny flicks are easy to perform as expected with the rubbers properties. Faster flicks are less dangerous than d05 or t05. Blocks: in this department I’m personally struggling a bit. Playing active blocks is ok, but there are better rubbers out there. I personally like very direct and harder rubbers like Dignics 05 for blocking. The increased dwell time might help some people to get more control in blocking. I detest that feeling. When being passive, I want the rubber to redirect the ball instantly. Especially on the backhand. Blades: I think that t19 perfectly fits fast outer and fast outer carbon blades. Due to the rubbers properties it will be still controllable and the blade might give you the speed to kill shots. Slow inner carbon blades and wood blades might be too slow in combination. forehand or backhand: with quick carbon blades I personally think t19 is a nice forehand rubber. T05 usually created a too low arc and too long trajectory with carbon blades like Viscaria for me. With t19 this issue is gone. Therefore I will give t19 a longer chance here On backhand I will stick to d05, as it is more direct, spinnier and easier to control.
