Question: Hi, I wanted to change my racket and move to Butterfly products. I had been using above combination for almost 4 years now and had been successful using it in my style of game, which is lot of top spin and smashes from close of the table. Also, I am more of a 3 point or 5 point kill player. I was considering using Tenergy 80 or 80-FX with Timo Boll ZlC.

Answer: Hi Himanshu,

It really depends on your playing style. Timo Boll ZLC is a perfect blade for the power attacker who likes to both loop and smash. Tenergy 80 is a bit faster than Tenergy 05 and about the same as Tenergy 25. In general, the FX version of Tenergy is softer than the regular ones. I suggest you try another players blades first and find one suitable for you.

Hope my suggestion helps and good luck to your game.
