I am writing this from the perspective of an "advanced beginner". I have my basics down but a long way to go. I started out with 5-ply all wood blades landing on Primorac with H3 Neos on both sides. My coach suggested going for Tenergy Rubbers so I made the leap to Primorac with T05s. There's a lot of "good advice" out there for beginners, such as "avoid carbon blades", however, I made a couple of cheeky purchases as I was eager to try different things out, specifically Viscaria (T05), Carbonado 45 (Mantra M) and Innerforce Layer S (w/ T80). Out of all these blades I immediately warmed to the Viscaria with the Carbonado a close second - Viscaria just feels right, sounds right and just does exactly what you'd expect the blade to do. The Innerforce blade was my least favourite - compared it sounds duller, it is slower, which I don't particularly mind, but the slowness seems more like "reluctance". I know it's a feature that it takes more for the ALC to be "activated" but Viscaria seems more dialed in and just starts "clacking" at the exact expected time. The plus sides are: awesome quality, much nicer and less 90's design than Viscaria, and it feels very good in the hand with a slightly thinner grip. Despite this only being my 3rd favourite setup, it has to be mentioned that the Butterfly Innerforce Layer S is a great blade, beautifully made, and probably just the thing for someone out there. However, I would recommend comparing this to Viscaria or even Joola Rosskopf Emotion when trying it out. Total weight with T80 is 183g.

Like no other composite blade!. If you find TBS/VIS/Zhang Jike ALC/other ALC blades lack the feel of balls Innerforce ALC.S is an answer! Beautiful blade, great dwell time.All-wood feel in short-game and carbon power for attack.Thin construct and spruce outter-ply help generate monsterous spin but rely on player's own strength and technique to generate power and speed-( speed-8.8-8.9 ) .

My previous blade for quite some time has been the Butterfly Photino. However, of all the blades that I've ever used; the Innerforce Layer ALC.S definitely has the best control and feeling. Excellent flexibility and dwell time as well. As an All-round Attacker this blade makes it easy to impart effective spin on my serves as well as quick and highly effective explosive backhand loops and drives. Though, quality of strokes, proper execution of technique and type of rubbers all help me to achieve such.
