The scope of this paper is twofold. On the one hand, we will investigate the reversible geodesics of a Finsler space endowed with the deformed newly introduced (α,β)-metric
where ε is a real parameter with |ε|<2√a+1 and a\in(¼,∞); and on the other hand, we will investigate the T-tensor for this metric.
