Your Ask the Experts question was answered by Byung Jung An. He is a coach at Han In Table Tennis Club in Palisades Park, New Jersey. Coach An’s response is as follows:

Hi Akhil,  
 
The Harimoto ZLC blade has high elasticity, so you can play powerful shots while the Harimoto ALC blade is flexible and soft, for more stable play. Therefore, the Harimoto ZLC has excellent speed while the Harimoto ALC has excellent control. The Harimoto ZLC blade is my recommendation for you because when you play, you can hit hard anywhere on the table.  
 
Good Luck!  
 
Coach Sam
