Ask The Experts: Stefan Feth #292 Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer Question: Please help me choose between the butterfly Timo bill spirit and viscaria. I know that Timo bill spirit has a thinner handle ,has the same composition and thickness as the viscaria. Please compare the flex,spin , control and speed of these two blades. Which of these blades will have more control and loop better mid distance from the table? The Timo bill spirit is $20 cheaper there I live. Thank you Answer: 
Stefan Feth
This Ask the Experts question was answered by Stefan Feth. He is one of the coaches at the World Champions Table Tennis Academy in Santa Clara, CA. Coach Feth’s response is as follows:
Hi Narendran,
 
Thanks for your question and interest in Butterfly equipment.
 
The shape of the racket head between the Timo Boll Spirit and the Viscaria blade is slightly different. The Viscaria blade racket head is more narrow at the top which increases the racket speed and adds more power to the shots. The Timo Boll Spirit has a regular sized racket head and should provide you with a little bit more control.
 
Hope this info can help you make an informed decision.
 
Best,
 
Stefan Feth US National Team & Olympic Coach Coach @ WCTTA www.tt-champions.com
