This rubber is amazingly fast when you hit the ball and reach the sponge due to impact. I already played with different rubbers from DHS H2, DHS H3 prov, DHS TG2 neo & TG3 neo, TinArc3, 729 higher & faster, 729-05 & 729-08, Rakza 7, Rasant, Hexer HD, Tenergy 05 & Nittaku H2 pro. So far this is the fastest rubber that I have used. Spin is also great but not as great as T-05. The topsheet is so bouncy so ball placement will be difficult if you're just a beginner. Your swing angle should be at around 45' to make a consistency on rallies. Soft feel blades such as ALC, AL or all-wood blades are the perfect combination with this butterfly rubber. If you use a hard/stiff & fast blades such as pure carbon blades, your ball throw will be bouncy thus, control will be a bit difficult.

This could be the faster among all Tenergy series but you cannot have both sides fit with the same T25 FX as it really means for attacking game so you really need to have the stamina to play that kind of game. I found it too hard to produce spin so every time you have to hit hard in order to generate more spins. In other words, if you are not playing attacking game then you should not choose T25 FX instead where you should consider to use T05 and T80. T64 is fine too if you would like to play a safer game where you put control as your priority. Some players always thought that they can kill their opponent with just one "hard hit" stroke so every time they hit very hard unfortunately it was not always the case where no matter how hard you hit the ball, as long as it is reachable by the opponent you will be surprised that your opponent may return the ball with more spins and speed. Therefore, you can see that no many top players were using T25 series for championship games. The most common used was T05, T64 and T80. If you still attempt to master your table tennis skills I suggest you should consider T05 or T05 FX instead. In conclusion T25 FX is meant for attacking game. Most Chinese players won't use Tenergy series for the forehand because Tenergy was not tacky enough and not good enough to produce "killing" spins. Most top Chinese players were still using DHS Harricane for forehand and Tenergy for backhand. Please don't get me wrong those Harricane you can't get it from the retail shop however the Provincial version with blue sponge (make sure you buy a genuine version) is more than enough for amarteur. This combination gives you the advantage to play attacking game where you still can have control in mind.

Very Good Rubber! Best suit for hard blades! The dwell time is too long on medium hard/soft blades. After tried this rubber on my friend blade (which is very hard, don't remember the name) i really liked this rubber but when put it on my TBS blade (both sides) i a little bit disappointed because the ball staying to much time on blade and need to get use to it! After month switched the FH to Tenergy 80 ( which is a lit bit harder)

A new year, a new bat; well new TT rubbers at least. I had been using Acuda S1 (FH) and Acuda S1 Turbo (BH) on a Boll ALC blade for over 12 months, nothing really wrong with either of them, but they needed replacing and I wanted something with a tad more power. After pouring over sites like this I eventually opted for Rasant (2.1 mm FH) and Tenergy 25FX (2.1mm BH) on the same Boll ACL blade (using Andro free glue). After three sessions of play, I am broadly satisfied with my new set up. Rasant has certainly not disappointed, it is noticeably quicker (but not uncontrollably) and my topspins fizz with as much spin as they did with S1. Blocking, touch and flick shots are all great too. In short, it has improved my game. Adjusting to T 25FX on the other hand has been harder. Off the bat it feels (and is) slower than the Rasant & S1 turbo. Shots on I used to put away for winners on my backhand, now find the net. Not surprising perhaps the T 25FX is after all a softer rubber. You need to use your body (hip) rather than just forearm & wrist on the backhand to get the ball to go. But when you do and catapult effect kicks in this rubber is pretty cool, and offers a gear that others don't have. Where it is really exceptional, though, is in blocking. Just as other reviewers have said the control on the block is excellent and I find myself getting a lot more balls back than I used to. Overall, happy with the switch even if I haven't fully adjusted to T 25FX yet. Now if I could just find a better blade...the equipment whoring continues.
Weeks later Rasant is still great, but I am still struggling to adjust to T25 FX on my BH. Alas this rubber is just not for me. Swapped it for a new sheet of Acuda S1 and noticed an improvement instantly.
