Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer

Blade: Primorac Carbon

Question: Hello coach, kindly compare Butterfly Timo Boll ALC with Primorac Carbon.

Coach Truong Tu, Ask The ExpertsAnswer: Hi Debajyoti,
 The Primorac Carbon has 3 Wood + 2 pure carbon wood, while Timo Boll ALC has 5 Wood + 2 Arylate Carbon (soft carbon).
The ALC will give much more feeling and spin without losing too much of the power (since Timo Boll ALC has 7 plies). The thickness of the blade is quite different as well: Primorac Carbon has 6.9 and Timo Boll ALC has 5.7.
Overall, the Timo Boll ALC is a newer technology.

Best Wishes,
Coach Tu
