      I use JOOLA Rhyzm (with a z not th :P) but it is not exactly like T05 it is more like Tenergy 64 in that it has a softer topsheet. It is a great rubber and I really recommend you try it out. If you need something that is a bit harder then Adidas Tenzone is around the same price as rhyzm and is much harder, but is easily the closest rubber to Tenergy I've found.

      Thanks for the info, it's just that I like to find out abit about the product before I buy.
      Also I have tried joola rubbers before and thought they were awful. But that gives me more of an idea and will look to buy

      Paul, it is likely true that in the last few decades, Joola's rubbers were not exactly the top performers, although Joola had a ton of great blades and apparel. Joola has slowy changed that with a few of its rubbers, so the perception isn't exactly always true any more.

      With todays rubbers and how vastly tenergy is used people have forgotten a key rule. For most players I often see that they will bash on JOOLA rubbers, but I just listen to the words of Jorg Rosskopf. He has said before that many players below the professional level of play are searching for that perfect rubber and often settle on what's known as the best in the market. Most of these players are not nearly close enough to the level they need to be to use these top of the line rubbers to their fullest potential. The funny thing is that people are looking for a rubber that helps them rip the ball faster and spinnier than before, but what they don't realize is that if you can't rip the ball with Mambo or Sriver you shouldn't be using or attempting to rip the ball with Tenergy or Tenzone. Technique will always surpass equipment.

      I recommend Joola Rhyzm as a replacement to t05. I have switched to Rhyzm because it's so inconvinient and expensive to buy butterfly products in Finland. You have to order them online from Sweden. I've been using Rhyzm for 3 weeks now. I feel I can do almost anything with it like tenergy. It's not as grippy as tenergy. It's better for smashing than t05 propably because of the softer top sheet.

      speed and short game is comparable to T05 but spin is less than T05, but for the price i would go for rhyzm plus its very durable, from my experience its more durable than tenergy

      Hello sxTT:
      Rhyzm seems pretty impressive. How would it compare to any of the Adidas rubbers (Tenzone, P5, P7, etc)

      I would compare it to P3 or maybe P5 in spin and speed. But P7 and Tenzone are both much more like Tenergy in that they are faster and spinnier than most other rubbers and imo come closest to Tenergy.

      I both like to use Tenergy 05 and Joola Ryzm, but I prefer using Joola Ryzm...
