      Hi Carl,

      I think this time you're mistaking my main point. My main point being: he's not listening to you. Despite of your detailed explanation of why slower blades would best help him, and also of your several choices of economically sound blades on the other threads, he yet created another new thread with new more expensive choices. If he listened to you he might create a new thread asking which of the many blades you mentioned would be better or best for him, but he didn't do that.

      I mentioned that I agreed with your points earlier. And on accounts of good cheap blades, if need be, there are more options (cheaper but not less good, some even below $20) than the ones you mentioned earlier.


      So, earlier I'm just giving a nudge to you to let you know he's not listening to you and you could stop pounding him with the same or even more sound advices. It falls to deaf ears.

      In light of that, I made some recommendations based on his own choices. Omitting the obvious the T5000.

      Then the rest of choices could be lump to two sections the Innerforce and the ALC.

      The Innerforce are the slower ones and would still be right along your previous advices albeit being composite instead of all wood. I tried with one or two of these before and didn't quite like the feel.

      The other section which is on the upper range of your previous advices and might cross it a bit are the ALC : Garaydia, TB, and Viscaria. Of these three only the Garaydia I haven't tried before. Looking at the latest Butterfly blades matrix, I compared the positions of the blades and based on my previous experience with many Butterfly blades before, the matrix is somewhat accurate. And based on the matrix it puts Garaydia ALC around the same speed category as TB ALC and Viscaria. As the matter of fact it places it under (slower) than both TB ALC and Viscaria. So that's why I put these three together and didn't exclude the Garaydia ALC.

      From reading the forums over the years, and also from what I see here locally, I'm making some remarks that users of Innerforce series are way less than users of ALC. I'm not saying it's bad, just the numbers are small in comparison. That coupled with my own experience playing with them serve as the basis of my recommendation for the ALC as the better/safe bet that he would be able to use/enjoy the blade. It's also a safe bet because if he doesn't like it and want to sell it he won't have too much problem because of the constant big demand for them. I even said that if he thinks it's crap I would buy it from him at the end of one year. Giving him ample time to learn and enjoy and see what the blade has to offer.

      I think I said enough and besides, the OP hasn't come out and voice his thoughts, and it all becomes kind of moot anyway. No need to prolong this any longer. The OP has more than enough information without us adding to it anymore.

      Cheers!

      Actually, perhaps I should have quoted the point I was referring to:

      I got that you said he wasn't listening. But the reason I am not entirely sure, I posted in the other thread two minutes before I posted in this thread.

      He posted his last answer to my question about his skill at looping backspin within a few minutes of making this thread. And he made this thread well before I had made a post about blades that might be useful for him.

      And he had previously posted a few different threads for different used blades. He posted 2 or 3 different ones within minutes of each other. So, I think he is possibly one of those guys who like to make new threads for almost the same subject.

      Why did I post the same answers in both threads at the same time? Yeah, as I said, I can be a bit over the top. Hahaha. But I also have a feeling that English may not be OP's first language even though he writes quite clearly.

      And I have noticed that The OP is only on here infrequently. I am not sure he has read through all the posts.

      But, if I do end up realizing you are right and he is disregarding the info, I will be happy to view from the sidelines. And you are certainly correct that there is plenty of information for him to look at. And I have given more than....errrrmmm...enough. LOL.

      So, thanks for looking out for me.

      If this is your first carbon blade then IFL ALC.
      If you're not that good at TT and still need development then IFL AlC
      If you really want feeling of the ball then IFL ALC

      If you want more power and speed then Viscaria
      If you have better technique and good fundamentals then Viscaria
      If you want to use DHS rubbers then Viscaria (i find it has better commpatibility IMO, Dont really know why)

      I would recommend the Stiga infinity vps
      it is very controllable but still very good for all out attacking play.
