Hi
I'm an attacking forehand oriented player that loops on both wings. I play close to the table. Anyways, I tried one of my team mate's carbonado 145 and loved it. I was just wondering, do any butterfly blades, such as the innerforce layer alc, have similar properties?
Cheers

Different blades for different strokes for different folk, I'd say, but there are distant relatives sharing some of the properties. That would be the (all-wood) Korbel SK7 (not a composite blade and definitely thicker/stiffer), and the Apollonia/Innerforce ZLC (and maybe even the Innerforce ALC and ZLF).

The carbonado series has a different feel compared to the ones in butterfly. They have different composite materials.

It ends about 1.5-2 inches from the edge of the blade last time i bounced the ball on a bare blade.

And how is that compared to carbonado?

Innerforce has a more woody feel because the composite is near the center ply. Carbonado has somewhat a woody feel too since textreme is so thin.
