Butterfly's Tenergy 19 is here and everyone wants to know how it compares to Tenergy 05. Well in this video we find out!

I use theTimo Boll ALC blade and Tom used his Hybrid Wood. Let’s see how it performs:

good review Dan. If the ball sinks more into the T19, does that mean the topsheet is softer?

I have seen another review where it was described as a Dignics 05 top sheet feel with Tenergy sponge.

everything in the review was expected except for speed. I expected it to be faster than T05 but clearly not

I just put Tenergy 19 on my Viscaria. I have to say, I was not impressed. It seems like if you want more dwell time and touch for shorter pushes, etc, then why not use Dignics 09C. If you want faster attacking, more direct, go with Tenergy 05. I found Tenergy 19 to be something in between. Because I have another Viscaria with Dignics 09C on it, I was able to compare back to back. For me personally, I greatly prefer the Dignics 09C. And if I wanted to switch, I'd switch to either Tenergy or Dignics 05. I kind of felt like Tenergy 19 was neither here nor there. A $200 disappointment for me.

Thanks for the review and releasing it this soon! It answered all the questions I had.

PS: Dan, will you be switching to T19 on your BH?

Great review been waiting for this. How does it compare to 05 fx?

Awesome review! The chart was brilliant... wish it included Dignics 05 though too!

Hi, could I ask if you tried it on your backhand or forehand?
I'm currently using Dignics 05 on my backhand on Viscaria. While the spin is great, I would appreciate the easier access to power of the Tenergy series, since it is more difficult to execute far-from-table BH loops with the D05 in light of its shorter arc. Thinking of trying the T19, and was wondering if you would recommend T19 for my playstyle

I will probably like it. I like rubbers that have almost no pips at all, like Stiga Mantra. I wish there was a Tenergy like that.

So what is the difference between T05 fx and T19? T05 fx is a softer T05. It should be similar to T19

I had the Tenergy 19 on both sides of paddle 1 and Dignics 09C on the both sides of paddle 2. I have been playing with Dignics 09C for awhile now and really like it. I didn't compare it to Dignics 05, so it's hard to say. Compared to the 09C, the T19 definitely has more direct power. But I would rather sacrifice some power for more control and spin. It was only one session, so I'm definitely going to try the T19 again, but after one session, I strongly prefer the 09C.

Dan, that chart You made is awesome.

Two things:
1. You have reviewed a lot of rubbers that are not on the chart.
Would it be too much to ask that You added some of them (like EL-S and FX-S ).?
2. Is the chart downloadable somewhere on this site?

Keep up the great work.

Nice review guys!
I've watched a Russian interview with Kirill Gerasimenko and he said that he uses T19 on fh cause he can produce more spin with it. And he keeps T05 for bh cause it's more controlled. He said that T19 = D09C topsheet on a T05 sponge and that it grabs the ball better than T05 :)

The ones that was tested recently should not be impossible. It’s a great idea and since it’s done by just a few people it should be more correct. Once you learn Dan &. co’s perspective you can correlate with your own...

Can you please post the link to this interview.

Do you know what blade he is using?

Gerasimenko is not playing with Donic?? I thought he has blue sponged rubbers
He was Donic-sponsored, there were pictures of him using blue-sponged rubbers both sides, and also Tenergy both sides, almost always on Butterfly blades (Mizutani, Timo Boll ALC, Freitas ALC...). He's now Butterfly-sponsored: https://www.butterfly.co.jp/players/detail/gerassimenko_kirill.html

In a recent interview with Russian Youtube Ch Zonenko, he said he is using Freitas ALC balde with FH Tenergy 19 , BH Tenergy 05 rubbers

Could this T19 be like Rasanter R50?

T19 is medium hard, 47.5 degrees at most.

Many will think of it as a BH rubber, whereas R50 is more thought of as a FH rubber.

Here's the video :)
The blade is Btf Marcos Freitas.
