Viscaria's head heaviness add a unique feature to the play. The flicks get better if played with control. The counter looping gets massive power.

I would suggest you to look for a blade that has the same construction but balanced.
Maybe Timo Boll ALC.

Give it a thought.

Hi Rajd,

I currently play with Timo Boll ALC with boosted Tenergy 05 on both sides. Maybe I'll change 05 in Backhand to a rubber better to block and less reactive to incoming spin. My Timo Boll ALC is ST. and I don't want to buy the same blade with a diferent handle(I want to change to FL handle. I used ST to improve backhand) xD I tried a Zhang Jike Off(Old zhang Jike blade) and i didn't like the sensation, head heavy and dead, with no feeling compared to TB ALC. But when I tried Viscaria(Old butterfly tag) I liked a lot. That blade had something special to me, and didn't feel at all head heavy.

the weight balance of blade matters much more than overall weight.
a 90g blade can feel less head heavy than a 85g blade if large portion of that 90g is biased towards the handle, but that often means less power from the blade as well though.
