Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer

Innerforce ZLC
Forehand: Tenergy 05
Backhand: Tenergy 80

Question: For about 2 years I have used Innerforce ZLC with Tenergy 05 and there is nothing that feels quite like it. My problem is even after 2 years I think it is just a little fast for me in the touch game and closer to the table but I love the feel of the blade looping. I have considered switching to either the Innerforce AL, Innerforce ALC or Innerforce ZLF. I want something that feels similar when looping mid or long but is a little easier to control in the touch game and closer to the table. I am going to stick with Tenergy 05/forehand and Tenergy 80/backhand. Which Innerforce will feel the closest but be a little slower and help my touch game?

Answer: Hi Logan,

Thanks for your question and interest in Butterfly equipment.

I recommend for you to try the Innerforce ALC blade to help with your touch game close to the table. The Innerforce ALC blade has a similar soft feel like the Innerforce ZLC but provides you with even more control.

Hope you find this helpful and enjoy your new blade!
