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.

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.

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”.

Best blade for tenergy 05

This was my first carbon blade after playing on 5-ply wood (Nittaku Acoustic, Ma Lin Extra Offensive). First big differences I noticed were large and uniform sweet spot and reduced vibrations. I play H3 on forehand and T64 backhand. My forehand was faster and more linear off the paddle, and I liked the harder and more direct feeling paired with H3. Backhand was much faster and a little harder to control at first. Had to close up more for looping, but mid distance backhand loop was very easy. I feel this blade packs a lot more power than the wood blades, especially paired with tenergy, but it is not too fast or crazy. Very nice and comfortable to play with.

I have got this blade for quite a short time but I can say it is absolutely great. It has a lot of speed while keeping so much control. My topspins which went 5-10 cm over the table with different bats (also with slower ones) are now easily on table with the same speed and spin. Highly recommended for offensive play!
