Hi Alois,

I'm looking into getting a new blade as an upgrade from my Donic Epox Control (1.8 Mark Von both sides). I'm thinking of going for carbon composite blades and find the Timo Boll ALC very interesting. I don't like really fast carbon blades, just ones that are mid-fast and offers good control and feel (I like to feel the ball hitting the blade when playing). Do you think that this blade is for me? Which rubber should I use for it? I'm good at blocking and normal counterhit with a better backhand.

Also I'm very interested in the Tenergy series and found that Butterfly says that 'Free Chack' must be used. Do I have to use this or would any other VOC-free glue do just fine?

Hi Anthony,

FIrstly I will leave it to other readers to comment on the different blades.  The ALC will be fine I think.

Tenergy is a very fast rubber.  You don’t have to use Chack.  Any VOC free glue is good to use.

Thanks Alois. Can you tell me what you think about Tenergy 25? It's said to be designed for close-to-the-table play but I don't hear about it as much as 05 and 64.

Hi Anthony,

The 25 is softer and will give you more control.  If that is what you are looking for then it ay be suitable.

So if I want to play counter-attack, block and push most of the time and then attack, which comination should I go for of the Tenergy series? FH-BH: 05-80, 25-80, 05-64 or 80-80? Feel free to add any other combos. Thanks
