Excellent with T80. Very good control in both loops and blocking. Seems to help everything clear the net and still stay on the table. Plenty of speed for kill shots.

Far better than the old Jun Mizutani ZLC. Feel and control is great. Not that fast for a ZLC blade but put a Tenergy 64 in it and it will be as fast as Amultart ZLC blade.

I really loved feeling with 05. Not for amateurs

Good blade. Good with Tenerge 05FX, but you need a high level of skill. Zlc carbon does not forgive technical errors.

My blade weighs 87g @ 5.7mm thick. I also have the 1st edition Mizutani ZLC and it has about the same weight and thickness also plays the same except this one is a touch slower and slightly higher throw. This is a very ideal offensive blade with excellent feel and control; yet it's fast enough to finish the point. It has a good soft feel with a lot of dwell for a carbon blade due to the elastic zylon composition Butterfly added to the carbon. As a result, you can produce an enormous amount of spin & nice arc. Feels like the blade can grab the ball momentarily then throw to wherever you aim. So your loops are super spinny and underspin flicks are easy to generate. I also own the Super ZLC version which I like very much, but at times when I am on the defense with that SZLC blade, it feels too fast to control but this blade plays & feels very similarly except it's slower, softer and more control. The speed is fast but not too fast. Little faster than the Freitas ALC but slower than the TB T5000 & MJ SZLC. It's almost perfect except I wish for a wider FL handle like the one in the ZJK blade; but that blade's top veneer is koto vs the softer limba used on the MJ. Here is my review summary: Speed=9.2 Control=9.5; Spin=9.5; Feel=perfect; Flick=easy; Flex=6; Hardness=4.5; Balance=good; FL grip=OK but wish wider; Dwell=very good; Smash, flat hit , block, serve Drive & Loop=excellent; throw=med+; Sweetspot=huge; touch shot=good; push=good; Overall=9.6
