Like this much better than T05fx. T05fx has a higher throw and seems to get a bit wild with shot selection. T64fx is fast,spinny and more linear than T05fx. Plays very nice at ALL distances. Great power with nice control. Intermediate level players can use this rubber to elevate your game to the next level. Outstanding price for an outstanding rubber. Works very nice on FH also in 2.1 on a flexy fast blade for close/mid looping and hitting. Lacks a small bit of power away from table but blade selection effects that not the rubber.

I use Tenergy 64-FX on the backhand of a Kasumi Basic in 1.9. I switched from using Tenergy 05 only a couple days ago, and what a relief it has been! With 05, my shots were going off the table, when I tried to just hit and receiving was a definite issue. 64-FX has solved both those problems. I can do anything I want with it and looping with it from any distance- close or far- isn't difficult at all. Although the pushes sometimes go a little higher than I want, this is definitely a more all purpose rubber than 05. If you are a hardcore looper, than pick 05, but if you need to push or hit, try this out. You get more speed, a little less spin, but tons more control. If you really flick your wrists while using this on the backhand, your shots will come low and fast at your opponent. Cleaning this is a breeze and there are not any real problems with 64-FX (except maybe the pushing, but it's better than all the other Tenergys). Butterfly, many of your products may be overpriced, but at least when I paid my $64 and tried this out, I felt I got my money's worth.

This is a very different type tenergy in my opinion.
The fx spring sponge works very differenly with the 64fx as it has a longer pimple hiehht compared to 05 hence low throw soft rubber , but still super fast.
People who like slow flex blades and soft rubbers but find difficultly with speed due to the soft rubber and blade, you will love this. Better on fh since the longer pimples means that a harder stroke is required for the ball to get the throw above the net.
Works great for smashing.
Now since it's a low throw and fast people may think that having an upward brushing action will do the lifting job and the speed will come by the fast rubber , absolutely wrong ayse the pimple structure is such that the long pimples need a more forward motion for the rubber to work , while brushing upwards only top sheet using , the ball is super slow and weird . It's however good away from the table fishing lobbing counter Topspin away from the table.
One more big confusion is that it's bad for chopping , in my opinion it's one of the best chopping rubber and has beautiful control because of the long pimple structure.
I tried it on many blades.
Sanwei f3 pro (horrible very flat)
Nitakku violin (superb combination)
Stiga all round classic (best blade for this rubber,)
Gergley (too flat)
Dhs pg7 (good but a lil flat)
Use it on a springy blade and you will love it.
I think for the average player ,fx series are better on the 05 or 80 rubbers. The soft spring sponge and longer pimple height act weirdly and will take time to get used to.
UPDATE: after adjusting to it it works pretty good for BH also on my pg7 blade.
It will take a month at least to get used to it, but overall feels more powerful than t05 I started playing this counter push shot even despite heavy backspin it crosses the net and goes to the other side of the table with backspin making my opponent hit it to net. I don't know whether it spoiling my backhand from developing but it feels amazing and really fun to do.

Great feel on my playing style. Others are using it for their backhand but for me I use it on my forehand and the control is good. I will also try the Tenergy 05-FX and 80-FX.
