Tenergy 64 wasn't really popular before the plastic ball was it? At least in my region almost everyone that plays tenergy uses 05. I personally like the 64 more, due to the lower throw angle.

In tournaments I play Tenergy was never popular, none of them.
Mostly because of its insane price, players here prefer Donics, Xioms, or even Yasakas.

I don't think tenergy is more expensive than the other rubbers. I did some calculations and the edgy came out 2€ more than other rubbers, but made the blades longevity go up.

Tenergy 64 was and is very popular. It was probably the second most popular rubber after 05 from what I estimate to be 2009-2015.

I think the T64 will benefit from the Plastic Ball because the Speed factor is now more important.

The Ball take less Rotation, which defuses the T05 a bit.

I played with t64 for 6 years and then came the shitty ball.....

ZJK switched from T64 to T80... and ML as well to H3, the top prefer T05 now, not sure why

Maybe it's that for plastic ball there needs to me more force exerted which suits T05 more

BTY has raised once AGAIN their prices in Europe!! 60€ for a single sheet of Tenergy

Did you know their bribery actions towards our national federation? They give out top-notch tables for free to the clubs of our 1sr/2nd league that accept to play with their equipment (tables/balls...).
