Ask The Experts

Blade: Zhang Jike Super ZLC
Forehand: Tenergy 05 Black 1.9
Backhand: Tenergy 05 red 2.1

Question: Hi Coach! I just want to know if these Tenergy 05 rubbers are best for my new blade Zhang Jike Super ZLC, what do you think? Or shall I use Tenergy 64 on my backhand? I used to put my Tenergy 64 on my backhand and Tenergy 05 on forehand with my Timo Boll ZLF? What can you suggest would be the best rubbers for my Zhang Jike Super ZLC?

Answer: Hi Ivan,

Thanks for your question and interest in Butterfly equipment.

Since you are changing from the soft feel of the Timo Boll ZLF blade to the medium-hard feel of Zhang Jike Super ZLC, I recommend for you to try the Tenergy 64 for your backhand. The Tenergy 64 has a softer feel than the Tenergy 05 and this would provide you with more control on the faster Zhang Jike Super ZLC blade.

Hope you enjoy your new racket.

Stefan Feth
