    Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer

    BladeTimo Boll Spirit
    ForehandTenergy 05
    BackhandTenergy 05 FX

    Question: Please compare the Timo boll ZLC with the Zhang Jike ZLC (not the SZLC) in terms of speed and softness. In other words, how much difference is there in the speed and how much difference is there in the feel (hardness/softness)?since i want to up grade my set up (from TBS to?)

    Coach Judy Hugh, Ask The ExpertsAnswer: Dear Riza,

    The Timo Boll ZLC is a little stiffer and bouncier than the Zhang Jike ZLC, but it’s great for looping off the table.

    The Zhang Jike ZLC has more control, especially when playing closer to the table, and playing the short game.

    I hope this helps!
