      Limba + ALC Blades

      I've decided to switch from my Hurricane Long 3. I really like the dwell time it offers for spinning the ball.... But I feel I'm missing out on fast and direct strokes.
      So I want a blade with Limba and Alc combination....
      Any suggestions??

      Make your own blade or ask someone know how.

      Don't switch. Speed and power are the result of good technique.

      Your Long 3 should be sufficiently fast, if not faster than many Limba and ALC combinations out there.

      You'll have to switch to a viscaria or TB ALC to enjoy more power, but you'll lose the dwell time

      Innerforce ALC is a great blade but while it can go faster than your current blade, you need proper technique to get the speed out.

      Viscaria and Timo Boll ALC are koto outer, not limba.

      And you need even greater technique than with Innerforce ALC to even play with these blades which are not forgiving.

      Tamca 5000 doesn't have great dwell time like ALC does, it is however much faster.

      Donic Ovtcharov Number One is a good version of the inner alc (like HL5) for not very much money (relatively). If you want to just try something to get a feel, the DHS PG5 is the same composition, is very cheap and has a nice handle. The Fang Bo 2 is again the same composition, but mine at least has a thinner handle.

      The main ones I would recommend and they are all different:

      Innerforce/Harimoto ALC
      HL5
      Nexy Batos
      Freitas ALC


      Carbonado is not ALC but is worth trying as an alternative.

      Oh yes, I forgot about the Freitas ALC!

      Excellent blade but very fast! I had to sell mine, too fast for me.

      Fang Bo B2 from DHS.
      Fast, alc, perfect feeling, not so elastic as Long3.
      And is cheaper than all the mentioned blades above!
