The Arylate Carbon fibers are located closer to the core which leads to a softer touch and stunning feel.

Arylate-Carbon fibers dampen vibration and allow for dynamic play and precise placement.

If you love the feel, dwell, and control of a limba/ayous wood blade but also appreciate the increased stability and sweet spot of ALC then this is the blade for you. The cool thing that Butterfly did with the Innerforce layer blade is they placed the ALC layers deeper near the core of the blade. That results in more sensation and feel from the 2 layers of limba contacting the ball with increased stability and accuracy for blocking and hitting as well as power away from the table. Comparing it directly to an all wood blade its short game is great and controlled but when you swing hard that's when the ALC kicks in providing an extra boost. Slightly slower than a Viscaria or Timo Boll ALC but with better control, feel, and sensation. The only thing I don't like about it is that it has a thinner handle. I actually had a friend customize it with a big meaty Tibhar Force Pro black handle and now it's perfect. Great blade.

I used to all woods blade in my earlier years and my last one was Stiga clipper CC and decided to switch to ALC blade. I happen to have friend who use Viscaria and I can definitely say that it is way to fast for me. Getting Innerforce layer ALC is the best decision I've made, it maintains woody feeling for lower gear and soft touches and it boosts my strength at higher gear. It didn't take long time to get use to this blade and I really appreciate the control. I recommend this blade for allround~spinner offensive style.

Amazing blade, very fast at hight speeds, very controllable in passive game. Nice wood feel and all the flexx needed for power topspins.

Like no other composite blade! If you find TBS/VIS/other ALC blades lack the feel of balls Innerforce is an answer! Dwelly like no other ALC, soft woody feel like no other ALC has a kick in mid distance. Really high throw with T05 almost too high (I am thinking about T64 for BH). Works well with hard tacky rubbers. It's quite springy due limba outer. It's a half step down from ALC blades with different placement of ALC layers such as Vis/TBALC/ZJK/MM/TBS. If these are too "composite" Innerforce Layer ALC has enough power, great stability due Arylate/Carbon layers, great woody feel, long dwell and good control.

Great Blade! Excellent control in everything you want to do: Short game, mid & far distance game as well when you give more strenght to your hit. First feeling is pretty bouncy and gives you a feedback that makes you better feel the ball increasing your touch and your sensations right after your hit wich helps you to beter feel and quickly and easily master your blade but once the beast is mastered You will be able to put the ball anywhere you want and how you want on the table thanks to his great precision and his huge TURBO acceleration skills (thanks to the famous INNERFORCE Layer ALC!) Enough dwell-time and flexibility to easilly produce a lot of spin with of course the required technical skills to be able to perform it with efficiency. Loop, underspin, top spin and even counter top spin become so natural & easy to perform. Also perfect to block after little blade angle modifications & or adaptations. Smashing is now a piece of cake that gives you even more self-confidence in your play! And last but not least: The service becomes a lethal weapon thanks to the amount of spin you are now able to give with this magnificent blade! And of course like always you have to take in consideration wich rubbers are used in FH & BH and your own level & skills as a player. My blade weight= 84Gr.(naked!) This Blade is a MUST!
