Hello all,

can anyone tell me if the flared FL handles of the Viscaria and its family members (Fan Zhendong ALC, Zhang Jike ALC, Lin Gaoyuan ALC, Timo Boll ALC) differ in shape? Is there a variant that might be a bit beefier? According to the measurements in the catalog and the butterfly customer support team, they are all the same.

Viscaria, Zhang Jike ALC, Lin Gaoyuan ALC should be the fattest, and BTY site states FZD ALC is the same as these.

Timo Boll ALC, Matsudaira ALC are both thinner.

Recently (past 1-2 years) many pros have been selecting the Zhang Jike ALC and before that the Lin Gaoyuan ALC was very popular but LG ALC I think is no longer being made, but might be possible to still snatch one up.

I have a Viscaria, Lin G and FZD ALC and have also had a Zhang J and Timo B (these were straight)

Of the three flared handles they are all fairly similar but all feel different - I would say the FZD & LGY are slightly more comfortable and wider than the Viscaria but the difference is very small.
