I played with both. for me zjk alc feels softer and faster then Viscaria. Also zjk alc has more comfortable handle

I use a Viscaria and I've tried a ZJK ALC. Both blades around 90 grams with T05. The biggest difference for me is the flare handle. ZJK felt slightly thicker especially near the neck. It's subtle but I prefer the Viscaria handle for backhand and for making grip changes. Of course I'm used to Viscaria and probably could have adjusted to the ZJK without a problem. I know some people love the ZJK handle so it's definitely something you'll have to try for yourself. Balance was similar, both a little less head heavy than a Boll ALC. Maybe the ZJK felt a little softer. Neither my practice partner nor I felt a significant difference in shot quality. These are very similar blades.

If you want a great grip, ZJK ALC is one of the best out there.

That is what I felt too, zjk alc in m9re on a flexible and softer side than viscaria.

I have played both in penhold though. Taksim (Viscaria in penhold) feels faster with less feedback. ZJK ALC although feels more crisp, but has better feedback than Taksim.

Piligrim is correct it is a similar blade though but it is still a different blade. I think the Taksim is thicker if I am not mistaken.

Taksim was a disappointment. Probably the thicker core makes the hand feel quite numb compared to a thinner ZJK ALC.

In my opinion Viscaria is stiffer than ZJK ALC and ZJK got better grip
