- I am currently using 2x Mark V 2.0 on Nittaku Acoustic, I'm fairly satisfied with the speed (could be a bit faster), but I don't feel like I'm getting the dwell time that I should be with such a slow rubber. The dwell time is still much better compared to faster rubbers, but I'm not fully satisfied.

- I have tried a friend's racket with Tenergy 80 before, and despite being such a fast rubber, the feel like sense of dwell time was incredible. I'm assuming it's because of their use of spring sponge.

So my question is:

- Is there a alternative (cheaper or slower) to Tenergy with a similar feeling/dwell time?

- What about Rozena? I heard that it's a more controllable version of Tenergy, but looking at the stats butterfly gave, it's only barely slower than Tenergy and much much faster than Sriver (Butterfly's equivalent of Mark V)

Sounds like you're after a rubber with a softer sponge, and probably a 'glue effect' rubber, which gives you the feel of the ball sinking in, and then catapulting out. Tenergy gives you that feel, but so do many German rubbers with medium hard sponges. Something like Donic Acuda S2 will be a lot cheaper than Tenergy and still gives you that feeling of dwell time, and it's a step faster than Mark V.
Yes Rozena is as fast as Tenergy, and not quite the same feel as the Tenergy (just more speed but less spin), so that might not be the best option.
