      Xiom icecream azx(i)

      Hey all,
      I have a question about the xiom icecream blades. Im currently using Timo boll alc with t05 on my fh and dignics05 on my bh. Im loving my forehand and love the new dignics rubber for my backhand. However i was wondering if a change in blade would allow for a more forgiving backhand. I was thinking of the icecream blades as they have a different fh and bh composition.

      So my question comes down to: does tb alc compare to the alc side of the xiom blade, and if so, would te zlc side of the xiom blade give me an easier time flicking with my backhand, or would the change not be noticeable?

      Also is the azx or the azxi a better comparison for tb alc?

      Would love to hear your guys' opinions

      azx-alc side is faster than TB alc..
      if you want more control, azxi may be better
      Feel free to ask me anything about Chinese equipment... Hurricane, w968, 506, n301....

      Control is better for azxi due to inner composite. They feel different though.

      Would the control on the backhand alz side be better than i currently have on my tb alc? Also, going for the azxi for control, would i be losing out on a lot of speed for the forehand?

      The azxi is a fast blade especially with its alc side.

      Both sides of the AZX are harder and faster than the Timo Boll ALC.
      I have not tried the blade with the same rubber on both sides, but judging by how it feels in comparison with other blades, I would say the ALC side is very slightly faster and feels like it has a bit more of a kick to it.
