This blade isn't like a BTY TB ALC, it basically IS one. It has the exact same composition and plies (koto, ALC, limba, Kiri, limba, ALC, koto). It plays identical because it basically is identical for a quarter of the price. It is also extremely well made. Probably the best sanding job I've seen. It's also sealed nicely, so you don't need to seal it yourself. Basically, if you're thinking about getting the Timo Bill ALC, do yourself (and your wallet) a favor and get this instead. You won't be disappointed.

So, I bought one blade. I have a normal V-14 too. This one is a bit faster and stiffer and it is built with ALC. The feeling is high and good. I will update later. This blade is a must have! UPDATE! This is a PRO version, which means, that the blade should me more direct and aggressive, than the normal V-14. The blade feels definitely stiffer and a bit faster, the tempo is OFF with a fine touch. Goes well with all rubbers. This blade is a very nice looping blade well suited for an all out looper and attacker style. Similar to BF TB/ZJK ALC. UPDATE 2018! So I finally swithched to this blade from the normal V-14. I ordered one blade to my couple and she loves it too. Yes the blade is around 92 grams. But there is a big thing! After a few trainings my backhand improved because of the different balance of the blade. The blade is around 180-190 grams with most modern tensors considering the really heavy ones. Mine is 183 with 2 Palio AK 47 REDs. So I came to realize that this blade's weight distribution is very good, the middle point of the blade is 1.5-2 cms (0.6-0.8 inches) above the handle. This makes me able to switch my wings very fast. After 4 sessions I was able to succesfully loop 6-10 random loops in a match situation. With the normal V-14 (I tried 3 blades, with the same rubbers) I was slower because the weight point of the V-14 is higher (so it is a bit more head heavy). I also performed a non-intentional crash test, no big deal, but it is stiffer, than the V-14. Last time I did the puch serve I separated the top veener from the V-14, the V-14 PRO only got a little dent.

This is such an amazing blade. Easily Exceeds expectation. It is so identical to TimoBoll ALC. A very well crafted blade and it is ridiculous how low the price is when you consider that you are getting the same kind of performance but at almost 4 times cheaper. I have coupled this with TSP Super Ventus on the FH and Yinhe Moon Speed on the BH. It is both very stable and easy to open up with, feeling is so good. It generates lot of spin and control is too good. Looping is easy with great amount of topspin and speed. Touch shots are very controllable and can be kept very short. It is mainly for close the table game. If this is coupled with high performance rubbers like T-50 or Dignics it will be a killer. This is a very high quality blade! If you want TimoBoll ALC for a low price then Just go for it, you won't be disappointed for sure.

First and foremost the outer ply of this blade is KOTO and not LIMBA. This blade is amazing! I like it more than the expensive blades that I had before (Amultart, JM ZLC, Garaydia ZLC, Viscaria, TB ALC, HL5, Gergely Classic, Gergely 21, DOTC etc.) With all those blades that I've used before, I could say it is close with TB ALC performace but with more control and better feel. Update: I bought a spare and l put Joola Rhyzm 48 for FH & Tibhar Evo FXP on BH and it's perfect! Those who love blades with fishscale, this is the blade for you, both of my V14 Pro have it. P.S. Put sealant for protection against splinters.

This brick is good for blocking. I cannot say if it's similar to TB ALC, but it is nothing close to Viscaria, which is supposed to be very similar to TB ALC. You get what you paid for, and I paid $40.
