      Tenergy 05 questions

      Hi all,
      After using a brand new sheet of tenergy 05 for about an hour today, the topsheet became very slippy with almost no grip. Is this normal and what do you do to prevent this from happening.
      Thanks

      Could it be humidity?

      It looked quite normal just with a sort of slippy varnish type look. Could be humidity but it was incredibly hot and when I took a break and came back to playing the rubbers felt ok again for another hour

      As said above; Wet and/or greasy rubber, more than likely caused by humidity.
      If you have no grip, try wiping the bat with a dry towell or a dry part of your clothing.

      T05 is among the worst rubber for getting slick in humid conditions, you just gotta know that and wipe it like almost after every point.

      Try using short pimples when the humidity is high. That is nearly impossible.

      I'd like to counter with "tacky chinese rubber". The tack is almost lost when it's very humid, so if you plan on lifting heavy backspin in those conditions, make sure you have access to a good crane.

      New rubber has more packaging preservatives in it. I usually let mine sit out a day or two in open air to dry out a little, then it plays normal.

      Hi, thanks for the advice. I let my rubbers air for 3 days before gluing and also wipe it on my shorts after every couple of points. I will probably just quickly put on my rubber protectors after every or every training break to keep them trippy. Any other advice?

      Are there any butterfly rubbers that don't compromise too much on the positives of t05, but do act better in more humid conditions

      Mmmm. Rozena might fit that bill.

      T05 is abominable in humid conditions, literally just unplayable.

      I'd try to warm up the rubber before playing, e.g. under a hand dryer. It's bound to reduce condensation in humidity.

      I have a fun story about hand dryer and short pimple rubbers. Or atleast i think so. My old coach is a coach for a national team now so he is at alot of big competitions. He told me that when he was on the toilet, he saw Tang Peng dry his short pimple side of the racket against a hand dryer because of the humitidy. This was during his match, so he must have told them that he had an injury but i have no idea how he was able to bring the racket away from the table. I like that it is not only me that have trouble playing with short pimples when the humidity is high.
