One of a good blade from Butterfly
I used M.Maze ALC from 2011 to 2016.. It was a very fun blade to play with..
I tried different rubber combinations.. My faves were with T05 for its speed and loops.. DHS Skyline 3 in the forehand is very well for looping and short received, its more difficult to block speed incoming balls since a passive block will resulted the ball goes to the net, it needs an active shot with Chinese tacky rubbers...
It was suitable for hard sponges rubber as well as medium ones, maybe because of the softer outer layer that gives more dwell time and control.. Tried Stiga Boost TC and TS with it but seemed too soft.
A well play blade for close table attacks, service receive, short push, blocks, loops form 3 4 steps away from table, and I like the handle, its kinda different with my TB ALC, felt a bit bigger
My Biggest regret was I sold it to a friend, now I wanted it back, nowhere to find a new one since its being discontinued..
But then, I just bought Marcos Freitas last week because Marcos have been using M.Maze ALC for 10 years and now having his own blade with the same construction, but Freitas personal design..
See you in MF Review..
