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.

I used Gergely (Old logo) and Schlager Carbon Off+ before. I really want to improve my skills because Gergely and Schlager are really passive blades which gave me less efforts in playing and more on winning the game by power drives. So decided to change my blade to Viscaria. the 1st month I used this blade, I really need to adjust my strokes and power because the speed and consistency of this blade depends on you. This blade is like an extension of your hand. This is not a blade for Tamca 5000 users because it feels different and it really needs huge effort for you to generate power. Take your time to study how to use this blade because for sure you will not look for any other blades after you get used to this blade. I'm not planning to change my blade anymore. It makes me a better player.

https://instagram.com/p/7VDoMLgRRl/ - just a small clip of my playing style. I played with the timo boll spirit for a few years and I just switched to the viscaria, I found the timo boll spirit stiffer, this allowed me to have a great smashing ability and hard penetrating shots but there were many points I wished it had a tad more control. When I missed it was always by the smallest of margins. Once I bought the viscaria to noticed immediately that the control was greater, I'm still getting use to it but I'm finding that it has a similar play to the tbs but with added control, to me it feels rather light and so I just added 2.1 tenergy on both sides and I like the weight. I personally like being able to actually feel the ball contact the racket. It generates great spin over the table or off the table and I'm currently still figuring out the backhand, I've considered sanding down the flared handle, since I've become so use to the flexibility of my wrist with the straight handle

pro: koto top plies allow for soft touch shots, inner plies allow for speeds > ALC < MJ soft feel and absorption allows easy reloop for blocks and counters easy to setup short-long combination cons: wide gear range is difficult to manage when applying power medium dwell summary: soft, very wide gear range, between tb alc and mizutani suits topspin attacker
