    Are the handle shapes of the butterfly rackets different?

    I play a visacria in concave. The handle is a bit oval, which I don't really like and the material feels rough to the touch. Something rounder would be better. Which ALC racket in concave from Butterfly have a different shape than the Visacria or do they all have the same standard shape? The Harimoto ALC looks more rounded to me in pictures.

    I think that they are standard. While in most cases the red side allows the ping pong ball to go faster. The black side is usually known to put a better spin on the ball.

    The OP's right, and it's been discussed many times: Kenta Matsudaira FL handle shape is shorter and narrower than Viscaria for example, the ST TB ALC is a bit narrow and round too, the LGY FL is said to be narrow but with a longer handle.

    The Butterfly blades don't have the same standard shape.

    Viscaria FL = ZJK FL = LGY FL = 100 x 25 x 34 mm larger oval handle with wavy wide neck

    Timo Boll ALC FL = Timo Boll Spirit FL = 100 x 24 x 34 mm skinny rounder handle with skinny neck

    Most pros play with the same model blades you can buy in the store. Some (like the Butterfly Omar Assar) are available with longer or wider handles. Assar plays with the 104mm flare. And some pros use custom blades.

    On the other hand, I had an old primorac carbon and the handle was a bit short for me like it never reach the end bottom part of my hand whereas some old gergely and sardius blades were enough.
