Firstly, this is the Innerforce ALC. This is different than the Innerforce Layer ALC ------- Also playing level reference= 1756 USATT .
The blade is a dream come true for players who love the feeling of all-wood blades. Since there's two layers of wood outside their alc layer, there's a very woody feeling felt through the vibration feedback you get when doing your strokes. The outside layers are made of limba, which is very soft providing additional control on passive blocks. If you're more of a passive blocker opposed to a counter hitter, this may appeal to you quite a bit. The blade is pretty thin, and with how thin it is, you can bet it's flexible.
Looping is super easy, mostly due to the flexibility and how soft the blade is. The ball is always loaded with spin on loops. However, this flexibility takes control away when trying to hit flat for a kill.
Recommended for players who like to spin the ball and like wood blades. This is really perfect if you're trying to transition to carbon.
