Gandalf the Wizard and Galadriel the Elven Priestess, soon found themselves to be in the employment of a corporation called Butterfly Inc. Using their age-old whatchamacallit-thingamagic, they use it to create a super unearthly rubber and named it Tenergy. Soon, more denizen of Middle Earth came into employment of Butterfly Inc. The Orcs, Wargs and Uruk-Hai quickly organised themselves into the production, manufacturing and logistic part of the operation. The Tree-ents, under Treebeard leadership became their main supplier, supplying their natural sweat, err I mean latex to Butterfly Inc which is the main raw ingredient to produce Tenergy rubber.

    So, back to the question, what makes Tenergy so special. It is all the above that comes together that makes Tenergy so special. End of story.

    Wait, Gandalf, Galadriel and Treebeard working with Orcs and Worgs? (Uruk-Hai are Orcs so that is a redundancy).

    You can choose the magic of the elves and Gandalf, or you can choose the magic of Sauran, Sauraman and the Orcs and Worgs. But I don't think you can mix and match since it is a kids story where there are not so many shades of grey to good and evil.

    If you are presenting Butterfly as the big dark conspiracy, then perhaps you meant Sauran had helped them, with all his legions of evil helpers.

    If you are presenting Butterfly as the benevolent masters of the TT world, then you may want the white magic of the elves and the wizards who are on the side of good and have not been corrupted by Sauran or the lust for the ring of power.

    But I think it is clear, Gandalf, Galadriel, Elrond....they are not going to help Sauran or his dark creatures.

    One rubber to rule them all, one rubber to find them, one rubber to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.

    The best alternative for T 05 has to be T 80 on forehand and T 05fx on backhand. I have heard that there are other makes of rubbers but it is against the rules of table tennis to say they are as good as Butterfly!

    Pienso que hay varias opciones.
    *exer y rasant de andro.
    *V15 de victas*Acuda de donic talvez.
    *Omega 7 euro de xiom puede ser de lo mejor aunque el precio es bastante alto.
    Pero para mí la más cercana es sin duda la mxp de tibhar.
    y en tt11 siempre hay 3/4.

    Perhaps you could change "good" to "expensive", and that would be more correct?

    Try something like Yinhe Mercury or one of 100s of Chinese rubbers.
    I wasted first 15 years of my life with European & Japanese rubbers from Butterfly , Stiga, Yasaks etc
    Then I realized I don't really need them because these rubbers are only "needed" by pro players (who are subsidized by us amateur players for advertising, sposorship & endorsement costs, some other costs I won't mention)
    But then at that time not many quality Chinese rubbers were not very high
    Butterfly (& Stiga) are still the gold standard with highest quality (control) but amateur players don't need them.
    Chinese quality is far more than sufficient these days for an amateur player. ( I can say these true of any Chinese product over Japanese LOL)
    I order 5 or 6 sheets of Mercury for $5 each. I keep hoping they die because I can use the next sheet. But if I keep them clean, they don't seem to die.& I have about 4 or 5 extra sheets extra & ready to be changed anytime. I have not changed one in years on 3 or 4 blades I have
    For a price of one Dignics I can buy 20 sheets of Mercury, which will last me 2 more lifetimes

    Sriver, Mark V, Impartial, Magnitude, Feint Long Classic etc are the greatest rubbers of all time (I preferred SuperSriver over Sriver as it had more spin) .
    There are other reasons I now intensely hate Japanese & European manufacturers but I will get into them later

    Same goes with blades. I use a custom blade but if you want to buy a European or Japanese expensive blade, don't.
    Buy a Chinese clone (I did not say knock off) first with similar or identical layer composition. If you like it then buy the real one later, if you can afford it.
    If not just stick with the Chinese clone. Only diffeernce I see is higher material quality and the secret glues or epoxys used by Butterfly or Stiga etc. & quality control (even that bigger Chinese manufacturers liek RITC & DHS may have caught up)
