The very best of all the alc blade out there. Simply no replacement for this legendary blade. My blade is 85g. I prefer this over my tbs and tb alc. It's just better at everything by a small margin, just got that edge. Very crisp on all shots .has slight softer feel but still medium hard. definitely more precise feel of catching the ball on every loop. Hence high dwell. Throw is also medium to high similar to tbs may be better. Tb alc has slightly lower throw than viscaria and tbs with the same rubber test. Only advantage tb alc is it has better balance of weight. Viscaria for me is worth every penny.Must try blade , I have over 30 top end blade and this is simply the best along side with xiom vega pro blade, yes unknown but true (xiom)

Hard to describe it in just few words ... simply amazing. Great feeling and control, quite fast but is a topspin machine due to its longer dwell time, very well balanced (mine is 84g). Almost impossible to go wrong with Viscaria. Top notch blade, no doubt Update: 08.07.2014 I don't know why such a controlable blade is rated 8.1 for control? If Timo Boll ZLF is rated 9.2 Viscaria should be rated at least 9.0 or even 9.2 (depending on the particularities of each blade, weight, etc). These two blades (TB ZLF and Viscaria) have almost the same control but Viscaria is faster and has, by far, a much better feeling. Great blade. Note: I discovered that one user Malong1999 rated tihs blade 4.7 for control even if he says " Very good blade" (see above). A rating of 4.7 for Viscaria's control must be an error (I assume it wasn't because the ratings were to high as this rating it's among the first ratings). That's the cause why Viscaria has just 8.1 rating for control. Most players rated Viscaria around 9.0 for control. This is more realistic.

Compared Viscaria to my Timo Boll Spirit. Viscaria has slightly larger FL handle and was 3 gr. heavier. More direct feeling with a pinch more stiffness and power. Looping close to table sent the ball longer than TBS. so stroke adjustment is needed. Very suitable for mid distance looping and hitting. Good touch for the short game pushing and chopping. Blocking on BH was brilliant with Viscaria. I felt TBS was better for looping mid and close to table while Viscaria was better further away from table Counter hits where very fast with Viscaria. A bit head heavy with Tenergy rubbers. A great blade for mid and advanced players. These are getting easier to find now.

An amazing blade for mid distance loopers and the only ALC blade I play with now after being a long time equipment junkie. Great speed, control, consistency, power, and flex: this blade can do it all with no significant weaknesses. Looping, flicks, blocks, flat hits, and short game can all be played extremely well with this blade. Butterfly ALC blades are all great, but the handle and slight head heaviness of this blade just make this perfect for me. The only time I wouldn't recommend this blade is if you are a beginner still learning the basic strokes and then you would be bettter served with a 5 Ply wood like a Nittaku Acoustic or Violin. An all time classic blade for offensive players!
