When Butterfly started its Tenergy Series back in 2008, no one could image the impact Butterfly Tenergy 05 and its followers are going to create in the world of Table Tennis. A decade later, Tenergy rubbers are still very famous. Some say, it is the best rubber series of all times. Especially for Pro-Players, and the ones who seek to become a professional table tennis player in the future, Tenergy rubbers are the number one answer on a demand, the speed-glue ban created back then.
