    Viscaria

    Why do most Chinese players prefer to use the Viscaria? Just really curious. 😄

    Not sure they do!! It’s a very popular blade regardless!!
    Higher level players have the ability to control and use this blade with either Tacky Chinese rubbers (usually on FH) or spring sponge / ESN rubbers on BH.
    Viscaria has a reputation for pairing very well with Tenergy 05 on the backhand and H3 on FH
    So, 2 of the most popular rubbers of all time and one of the most popular blades!!! It’s just a really good combo!!

    Its a great blade. Works wit almost any rubber Great feel, fast enough. Not too fast. Not just popular in China. And some other blades very much like it are also popular, like TB ALC.

    Whether it is commercial, provincial or national versions of H3, Viscaria pairs well with it.

    May I assume that it remains true for the other Viscaria clones such as Timi Boll ALC, Lin Gaoyuan ALC, ZJK ALC, Kenta ALC...?

    The only ones I have played with are the TB ALC and ZJK ALC. The TB ALC has a different handle and slightly different weight balance but it should work just as well with DHS rubbers, or any other rubber. And ZJK ALC is even more similar to Viscaria. And yet, Viscaria is more popular with Chinese players and TB ALC is more popular with Europeans. Maybe this reflects popularity of ZJK, or Chinese people don't want to use a blade named for a German player? Or maybe Chinese players like the Viscaria handle better. But in any case, those three blades are very similar.

    And as for the potential export&import concerns of CITES endangered wood species that Music&Ping mentioned earlier: I looked up that list, and Wenge is not on the CITES list of protected species, so that wouldnt be an issue even if Der Echte needs to take it out of the country at some point. I won't have to export it anyway since I'm right here in California.
