Pros
  • dwell spot
  • best offensive
  • controllable
i bought Secondhand Zhang like blade from Malaysia pp4m Facebook group.
i really like ALC carbon blade type, it has very good dwell spot and easy to control.
this blade is not too stiff. I used tenergy 05 (FH) and Donic Bluefire M2 (BH) and i used to play close to table.
Previously, i had butterfly Micheal Maze ALC blade and Kong Linghui ALC blade, but i really attached to this blade.

Pros
  • Fast
  • Soft
  • Good Feeling
Cons
  • Blocking
  • Far From table
  • spin
Overall really solid blade with good weight, and considerably faster than the Timo Boll ALC. Good for close to the table players who play fast and better with not so hard rubber. Perfect with tenergy 05 or maybe 80. I switched from Timo Boll ALC because the zhang jike is faster.

Pros
  • Stability
  • Softness
Cons
  • Sweet spot
The ZJK blade is a nice carbon blade. Compared to the Timo Boll ALC, it is somewhat softer and slower. It has a low arc and a straight trajectory. Very well balanced from handle to head. The sweet spot is quite close to the handle, which might take some time to get used to. The dwell time is there for those spinny shots.

Pros
  • good feeling
  • sweet spot
  • gears of power
1. Speed.
Is fast, but not ridiculously fast.
Has good range of gear for both short play and powerful topspins.

2. Control.
Large sweetspot, much more forgiveness than most blades I've tried to play with.

3. Hardness.
In my opinion, is not very hard, and not very stiff.
Provides very good feeling, and very good for blocking. After changing from previous blade, had a feeling that you just need to put a blade in a way of ball, and blade will do the rest :)
For topspins, dwell time is enough for making spinny shots with enough power.

In my opinion, it is best of blades I've played with, and probably best for it's price.
I cannot really feel a difference with super-costly super-zlc blades, but difference from cheaper blades is obvious - blade is very good!
