Found this while browsing butterflyonline.com - a nicely made 10 minute video talking about Tenergy's development and the specific differences between each version. It also reveals the secret to Tenergy.

What Tenergy do you choose and use?

Good find. Explains the rubbers pretty well.

Good video! Haha, it's a good coincidence that Butterfly started producing better promotional videos for their products after my post in their Garaydia series video. haha

Anyway, the Tenergy series is great (especially 05 and 80) but, I am one of the small portion of players that do not suit well to the rubbers. It seems my FH really favours Chinese rubbers or hybrid rubbers. I went back to Spinart after trying the 05 and 80 (again) but the tenergies did not suit me at all.

they're great, but my wallet can't handle those prices :/ and some of them are way too fragile

The first time i use my first own custom racket almost 3 months ago i started with Tenergy rubbers, 05FX on forehand and 64 for backhand, but now this is gone because someone liked my racket and gave it to him for few days before i get it back from him, but he took the rubbers because he wanted something like new so i gave it to him.

Now i am not sure if i should use same Tenergy rubbers or different or even i go for another brand.

I normally don't like anything from Butterfly but this is very well made! :)

I wish more companies took the time to explain their blades and rubbers as well as Butterfly does in this video!

And people keep complaining about Tenergy or BTY higher prices, if not then Butterfly will not make things or videos or whatever for just cheap prices, from what i see many keep talking about Butterfly which shows me how top they are so i don't surprise of their higher costs, i am using different brands now either blades or rubbers but i must come over Butterfly products and all of them are good enough, not all very high prices anyway, only Tenergy rubbers are expensive, but blades there are many options cheaper from BTY anyway, i bought Carbonado which is nearly $170, my JM is almost same as this price too, so what is the problem with Tenergy rubbers, only the price?

The thing with the price of the rubbers. If you are playing at a decently high level, you have to change them every 2-6 weeks. Let's say it is 6 weeks and the price is $70.00 a sheet. 2 sheets every 6 weeks = $140.00. That comes to about $1,200.00 a year.

Now if you were changing every 4 weeks that would cost about $1,800.00. And changing rubbers every 2 weeks would cost about $3,600.00 a year.

Just for rubbers that is a decent piece of pocket change.

Perfect, i really forgot about changing story, yes, this will be costly if playing a lot and changing more often.

Well, this is why i spent too much within 2-3 months for now to see what kind of rubbers and blades will suit me better, i may like a cheaper rubber with expensive blade, then i can keep that blade longer if it is a high quality and i can change rubber more often if it is cheap enough and not costly.

Great video and informative. Having said that, the high price of Tenergy is still turning me off.

This video must be very new since Marcus Freintas just crossed over to BTY from Tibhar.

Great video but this calculation is hurting my soul a bit.

The thing with tenergy is also that those rubbers are never on discount. Even if the price of other rubbers is usually around 45-50 euros, you can find them on discount many times in a year......
I bought a bunch of Calibra Tours M for 23 euros per rubbers, still have two of them brand new. I bought alos my Evolution MX-P on discount, 33 euros per rubbers.....

For someone like me, who can't stand playing with deteriorate rubbers (a Tenergy 80 lasts me 4-5 weeks of training + competition, after that time, all the speed of the rubber is like lost and for me it is not enjoyable anymore, unless I tune to give them a second life), the price is very important.

For someone who use 4 or 6 rubbers per year, I can understand that the price doesn't matter really.

If a player is changing rubbers every 2-4 weeks, then that person is a either a semi or full pro. If not, they are fanatics beyond reason. Under normal circumstances (not including accidental damage), even a high level player should not require more than 3 pairs in a TT season. Sure, if he is fastidious, he might use up to 5, but he doesn't really need to.

Sorry, but this is a question for all here. How do you identify a dead rubber, meaning how do you know that it is time to change your rubber? I searched on youtube and found pingskills video in this regard. It says when the topsheet of your rubber looses grip then it is time to change. However, I have a different story to tell. I use same variant both forehand and backhand. However, my backhand rubbers is used less as compared to my forehand rubber. Recently, I switched my forehand side with my backhand and O boy...wasn't it a pleasant surprise! I have to put very little effort to loop against heavy backspin. But now if I evaluate my rubbers as per pingskills then they both have excellent grip if I rub a ball across the rubber surface. So, this is where I have a doubt. How do I know if the rubber is dead?

If the rubber feel dead when you play it it's time to change it. Just like you said, you FH was looping like shit but your BH was fine.
