TENERGY

High performance rubber
in ten variations

Tenergy has made techniques easier that were once considered difficult, such as banana-flicks and counter topspins. Since its introduction, its high rotation and speed performance has been highly coveted by table tennis athletes.
To support the improvement of players from a wide range of levels and various skill sets, Butterfly has increased the amount of Tenergy options throughout the years. This has been done via meticulous research and development into different pimple shapes and sponge hardness’s.
Find the Tenergy that will evolve your game from the ten types now available after the addition of Tenergy 19.

Technologies that bring out the features of Tenergy

Spring Sponge

Like a coil spring, the Spring Sponge absorbs the incoming energy of the ball and releases it as additional power for the player's own shot. Rubbers with Spring Sponge technology enable shots with high amounts of spin.

High Tension

High Tension technology enhances the reaction of the playing surface by adding tension to the rubber molecule itself.

Five specially selected pimple shapes

One of the technologies that makes every Tenergy rubber special is the different pimple shape each variation uses. The Tenergy series was born through using the best technology and through experimenting with more than 200 different types of pimple-shape molds. Each one of these molds was tested meticulously and an enormous amount of time was spent evaluating each one of them. The five variations of pimple shape that have been found to provide the best in game performance, have been selected for use in the Tenergy series.
