Since my current playing blade Barda (SDC 486) slightly splintered and I don’t want it to get worse I am forced to switch blade. I decided to upgrade my other favorite Mjolnir (SDC 372) from Yasaka Mark V HPS. I opted to jump ahead and go with regular Tenergy 05 on FH. This is a little bit earlier than expected but here goes, will use it in tonight’s session.

Ok, just came back from training. Mjolnir is slightly faster and also harder. The feeling is different but the speed was just a little bit faster. Now I have Tenergy 05 and 05 FX on the same blade and can compare them back to back. The difference is much smaller than I expected. The main things I noticed was that I think it was easier to play with (on FH) except for the brush loops. I seem to miss a lot of those but when I have a hard contact I seem to hit more. I didn’t get to try a lot of open ups on backspin but I suspect it will be a bit harder. All in all so far it’s working for me.

Had another session tonight. The brush went much much better tonight. The top speed is higher than FX, I wonder why Butterfly list it as the same. Have not managed to hit through the rubber yet like I did withFX.
This is definitely work for me but I need to be more agressive for sure. If not the hits gonna be meeeh. This is kind of why I liked soft rubbers that you didn’t need to hit so hard with but it’s time to change now I think…
One more thing, it was also much more difficult to receive serves than with FX. This will take some time to get used to.

my advise to you is ""two-fold""

1 Never take any advise, because you know better anyway 😁

2 if you refuse to accept option 1, my advise is to quickly repair the other blade and stick with it 😁😁😁

Had another training session last night, I really start to like Mjolnir now. Serve returns are straightened out, attack is a breeze the only weak point now compared to before is the short push game. Strangely my accuracy seems better with Tenergy 05 than Tenergy 05 FX, maybe be due to the higher arch and more curved trajectory. I was expecting a slightly worse accuracy. Oh well...
