The Innerforce Layer ZLC offers a completely new experience by combining ZLC Carbon technology and Innerfiber construction.

Carbon layers are placed closer to the core to provide an overall soft feel without losing the ZL Carbon characteristics such as lightness, flexibility and speed.

Soft woody feel, glassy sound, carbon stability. Slower than IF Layer ALC by a notch and a bit more linear a bit more flexible (just a bit), visibly faster than Korbel JP (new batch). Great blade for allround spin play. Passive and active playing possible due to enough speed and rebound. Works pretty well with T05/H3(tuned), great dwelly outers + deeper composite layers. Medium to Medium-Low throw angle, with high throw rubbers works perfect. Sweet spot is also great. I am not sure but I can't directly feel the carbon (but there is a glassy ping and stability), this blade vibrates a bit (just a milisecond) but this gives good vision of the ball patch. One of the best control blade around there (same "can't miss" feeling like TB ZLF/Ai Fukuhara). I would rate it as lower end of OFF range, not OFF- at all. Really close to IF Layer ALC but with surely softer feel, bit more vibrations, little slower but dwellier. I would even not compare this one to Garaydia series (much thicker) hence different playing characteristic (I owe ALC one and they tends to be better at snapping ball rather than spinning it).

92 gr FL. Very good with medium soft rubbers, good dwell and control bear-medium distance. Looping Machine, softer and slower than viscaria 87 gr, same rubbers. Little vibration and woody feel. Best blade for me so far. Ventus spin fh and ventus soft bh.

90g. Compare to DHS HL5. Rubber t05. HL5 best for topspin far from table, more to linear trajectory. IFZLC best for medium distance looping, high arc with spin.. Soft ifzlc>hl5. Vibration hl5>ifzlc. Flex ifzlc>hl5. Speed hl5>ifzlc. Spin ifzlc>hl5 for close table loop. Far from table hl5 speed n spin is better. Handle both small. It still a hard blade if compare to any allwood or alc blade. Not for beginner. I have many blade but no one can perform like this one, thin, flex but fast. Soft touch when slow hit but fast enough when hit hard. It will "holding the ball" if u have the skill. High level player that like to fast spin loop close table will appreciate this blade imo. Not a blade for beginner. Heavy price but no regret.

As good as the old ZLC.

Having played Avalox for so many years, BTF Innerforce ZLC comes a bit too quicker, fantastic on long loop far from table, for short returns can try a bit harder and require more techniques. Spin, fast, but need to work on control. Its 1st class of speed and spin, 2nd class of control, well comparing to avalox. The control is said to be good but it doesnt tolerate ur mistakes as much as avalox do. But surely better than average blades.
