The Timo Boll ALC is the blade of choice for the European Triple Champion, Timo Boll. Timo working with Butterfly's technicians, helped design his new blade which offers a touch more speed than his previous model but still allows for the production of the heavy topspin strokes Timo is known for.

Using his new blade along with Butterfly's new Tenergy rubbers, Timo successfully defended all three of his Titles at the 2008 European Championships. Timo plays fair and wins and so can you. The Timo Boll ALC offers the maximum blend of speed, heavy spin, and Control.

After 2 years of using this blade, i have never felt like i have had to change it; it is perfect for me. Not too fast and not too slow, but the thing which i like the most about it which i haven't seen in another non-carbon blade is the solid feel you get of it. with other blades, i dislike the hollow feel were you can feel the bat almost vibrate on the other side. I don't know if this is because of the carbon, but i like it.

Best blade for tenergy 05

This is a very good blade. One of the best ALC blades ever made. Very well balanced. It's a fast blade though not as fast as zlc’s it is still rather fast. Works amazing specially in Tenergy 05… “Highly recommended”.

My favorite table tennis blade so far! But I just got the Garaydia zlc from japan.its very good frim smashing and 50cm away from the table. Its a perfect match with tenergy 05 on both sides because Timo Boll uses that. So you wont exactly play like Timo but you still get the feeling of being like him. I use the AN handle, its very good for me because the top has a curve and its comfortable for long dwell time! So you got money and you want to find a very good blade with good control and power then go for it the Timo Boll alc is your best choice. Oh and if you'd like a cheaper blade Primorac is good for fast ball and power and control, this counts as offensive plays but spin in primorac is not good but smash your a beast.

it suffices to say the entire blade is one large, beautiful, very consistent -and not so reasonably priced- sweet spot. TBALC is a complete murderer. No wonder Timo Boll himself plays with this. Not reccommended however for intermediate or advanced players that are still developing technique, since it provides no vibration feedback compared to an all wood 5 ply blade of it's speed range (take Xiom Off S or Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Off). Even A thick 7 ply all wood like say andro CS7 Vel (Off+ as fast or even faster than this) provides better feedback when playing short or middle distance game .TB ALC is quite fast and not so easy to control due to the feedback issue I just described. However for Elite and pro players this is the blade to buy. Worth every penny if you can afford it.

Review it!
