Backhand: Xiom Omega V Asia

Question: I would like to know what I should use on my Innerforce ZLC blade? I’m an offensive, strong forehand player.

Answer: Hi Anthony,

Thank you for the question and good choice on the blade. My suggestion would be to use Tenergy 05 on your forehand, I believe it is butterfly’s best rubber for the forehand. It has good spin and speed. As for your backhand, either go with the Tenergy 64 or Tenergy 05-FX. Both are a bit softer than the Tenergy 05 but give you good speed with a bit more control.

Good luck!

Note: The Innerforce ZLC blade has been discontinued and the latest Innerforce Layer ZLC blade is available.
