Reviews of the Butterfly Timo Boll ZLC

Really good blade. It's not for the heavy loopers like ZLF but the speed is amazing. A control is good enough.
That's the balde for a player loving hard smashes.
Using it with Tenergy 64
Review mrmr1964 said this on July 1, 2010:

Just got my new BFY ZLC with BFY T05 on the FH and BFY Tackifire C on the BH. Excellent control on BH. with this combination. FH great with T05 for close and mid range loops and smashes. So far it feels good.

I find it very easy to use i just bought it yesterday. I use this paddle with the tenergy 5. I find it as a very good combination.
Review Smh said this on April 6, 2011:

This blade is very light. And when it hits it complements the light weight. It's like pillow soft to say. Small dwell time on a timo zlc w/butterfly flextra rubber. It hits stiff but feels soft in the way the ball pops off (no trampoline effect at allll)...very tough to convey. Precision and craftsmanship is top notch. The amount of spin produced is great but not the best but enough. Where people say this is a drivers bat, it is true, since you don't feeeel the ball, but it is very capable of doing it all. I would not recommend this though unless you want ultra light weight, solid feel with very little dwell, and precision. I would rather loop with something with more feel of a trampoline effect if I'm looping, but this blade for touching and driving. Not delightful at chopping either. Overall I was expected much more and it was not fun and exciting to use.

amazing dwell time and control for the speed it can produce. Also lighter than the mizutani or amultart with is good bcoz this blade goes well with the tenergy series. the only downside is the price but if you can afford it, its well worth the money.

Came from Gergely T5000 and transferred my rubber to this paddle. I immediately felt my loops are faster and more accurate. Control is much better. This paddle suits my playing style. Chopper/Blocker on the BH and looper on the forehand. Good for hard smashes.

Guys. I am thinking of buying a new blade. Been researching for 3months for the perfect combination. Right now, My choice is Timo Boll ZLC + Bryce Speed FX( Black )+ Tenergy 64( Red ). AND Timo Boll T5000 with the same rubbers. I like to loop very far away from the table. A well controlled spinny backhand. Super spinny serves, I want a racket that will suit my Style and will give me SPEED + CONTROL. I really have my eyes on this one. So guys, Pls help me pick a blade

The only different of this blade is that it makes more spin and it's fast too. It's very expensive. Butterfly put high prices but the people still continues buying.
Review XtreMmMmOoOo said this on April 18, 2012:

Very good blade... fast but controlable with very good touch for player who want to play fast topspins and flat hits.I used to use stiga rosewood V.This has same control with better speed.But if you want play slow spinny topspins ,maybe rosewood is better for this
Review JonathanJ said this on April 27, 2012:

Just got it, but it has been amazing. Great speed, but not too fast. Amazing control and flex for a carbon blade. Way expensive, but, hey, it was a Christmas gift. If you're willing to spend this much, go for it. It's a great blade

I'm sure I'll have more to say as I use it more :)
Review Vihito said this on July 2, 2012:
