Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer

Blade: Timo Boll Spirit
Forehand: Tenergy 05
Backhand: Xiom Sigma Euro 2

Question: Hi,

Please let me what are the differences between the following blades in terms of speed, control and spin:
Timo Boll ALC, Timo Boll Spirit and Innerforce Layer ALC.

Thanks in advance,

Saeed

Answer:  Hello Saeed,

In answering your question in regards to the differences between these 3 ALC blades, here are my observations and suggestions.

The Innerforce ALC – this blade is probably the best all-round among the 3 blades in terms of balance between speed, control and feel.

Timo Boll ALC – this blade probably favors players of mid and away from table power looping / driving.

Timo Boll Spirit – this blade has a seemingly harder feel and has a higher speed.

It all depends on your expectation in terms of your style of play and what is more important to you.

Hope this helps

Sincerely,

Coach Chen
Canadian Elite Table Tennis Training Centre Head Coach
