    5.00 Deadly
    • Great speed
    • Very spinny
    • Durable
    • Control
    • hard to spin
    This rubber needs break a couple of days of playing to break it. After the break in period this rubber is very spinny but the spin is a bit hard to generate. You have to have good brushing technique to generate deadly spin. The Tenzone is a very quick, direct and powerful rubber. When you hit through the sponge as you brush loop you get deadly shot to finish the point. Control is bit challenging though. You cannot do half baked shot or else the ball will go long. A full committed swing is necessary.

    All in all, I like this rubber. I think it is better paired with a bit slower and softer blade.

    4.00 My review of the Adidas Tenzone Rubber
    • Crisp Sound
    • Good speed
    Tenzone Max Black

    The Tenzone max black is a high quality rubber from adidas. when i saw the rubber for the first time i was impressed with its production. from the looks, the topsheet is less grainy compared to joola x-plodes' topsheet. i would say it looks identical of the genius' topsheet but differs in the pips structure and topsheet thickness. The Tenzone has a thicker topsheet than that of the genius. The sponge when i pressed it and played with it is medium hard. In the DHS scale hardness i would rate it as 38 degrees.

    FH to FH & BH to BH drives:

    Tenzone is very bouncy. The sharp and crisp sound produced when hitting the ball is distinctive of being an ESN rubber. The control is there but not its biggest asset.

    Loops:

    Tenzone produces a low to medium arc on both bh and fh. Tenzone is good for on the rise loop drives above the table. Spin is above average for both and fast loops and is enough to lift heavy underspin balls. during the first 2 days the rubber wasnt that spinny but now its very spinny after some time breaking in the rubber

    Pushes and serves:

    Spinny pushes are not hard to produce though you have to make some adjustments not to let balls pop up when making pushes but the adjustment is easy. serves on sidespins and underspins are average but fast knuckle or dead balls and topspin serves are very good due to the rubber's speed.

    Smashing, hitting and counter loops:

    These are the areas that this rubber shines. i think its built mainly for speed than doing spins. Topspins are easy for countering mid distance to far from the table. Its power doesnt diminish that much. Smashing is awesome coupled with its nice whacking sound. On these 3 areas countrol is very good.

    Initial impressions:

    Overall the Tenzone rubber can be labelled as a very fast with above average spin rubber. Its speed is comparable to that of Tenergy 05, Hexer and Calibra. Its like Calibra LT but a little bit spinnier. Its built for speed and it has lots of it. i enjoyed playing counterhitting and smashing with this rubber far from the table. Receiving spinny serves are good since this rubber is not sensitive to incoming spin. This rubber is above average in blocking also. I would recommend this rubber for advanced players only because this is not everybody's toy.

    4.00 Tenzone Review
    • Rebound
    • Explosive
    • Control
    When I first played with the adidas tenzone rubber I was impressed. One of adidas' first rubber and like a lot of their products this was high quality.
    I fond the rubber fast and quite explosive and the hardness of the rubber adds to the rebound effect when you are playing strong loops.
    The amount of spin you can produce is good too as it really propels the ball off of your racquet. The control it has is reasonable but is obviously affected by the fast rebound.
