The Timo Boll ALC is the blade of choice for the European Triple Champion, Timo Boll. Timo working with Butterfly’s technicians, helped design his new blade which offers a touch more speed than his previous model but still allows for the production of the heavy topspin strokes Timo is known for.
Using his new blade along with Butterfly’s new Tenergy rubbers, Timo successfully defended all three of his Titles at the 2008 European Championships. Timo plays fair and wins and so can you. The Timo Boll ALC offers the maximum blend of speed, heavy spin, and Control.

Submit a short review about Butterfly Timo Boll ALC - Chinese Penhold.
I got this blade yesterday and wow it felt great my shots had more spin and power behind them and i like that when looping and playing powerful spin shots the arylate carbon comes into play but when you smash and chop it feels like a wood blade best combination of speed, control and feel. My blade weight was about 90 grams but it didn't feel so bad. If you have the money buy this blade you won't recred it. I use this with xiom omega iv pro on the both sides
best blade ever, combining carbon with a natural feeling when playing.
Well balanced blade. It is for the player who desire control and consistency from his blade, but does not demand any speed that is ancillary to what is generated from the rubber.
This was my first blade and has served me well at developing a technique that rarely misses the mark. A great blade for looping from any distance and which doesn't add too much "pop" in short game.
I would recommend this to anyone.
It`s a great blade very fast with a little control. I think it´s need a good tecnique to play with this blade...... But if you have this tecnique its a awesome choice!!!!
I have played with a couple of different blades before like Mizutani Jun, Schalger Carbon etc. I just did not like the feeling of JM with Tenergy64 on both sides. The blade was too fast not doubt but hard, little flex and too little control. I did not like the feeling of Schlager as well. Hence I decided to give the ALC a try based on good reviews from the forum. Boy, this blade rocks !!. The soft feeling is amazing with great control and dwell time. Speed and Spin is more than enough. I am playing with H3 on FH and Tenergy64 on BH. I love this set up and it doesnt feel very head heavy at all. My blade weighed about 87gms when I ordered it. If you use lighter rubbers am sure you can get moer out of this blade. Its a keeper for me for sometime.
Good blade overall, but really nothing special.
its light and i think faster than TBS. Good combination with Tenergy 05 FH, Tenergy 64 BH
very good blalde TMALC i am use combo with xiom sigma pro max. FH and xiom 4 pro 2mm BH...good loop...good attack...
Speed is good as well as the control,it is the blade worthy of reccomending,use one and see the big difference.
Can this blade be used by a defender who chops both sides?

i us with joola x plod fh it good loop exprees because alyrat cabon help x plod show
effect rubber 100 % and kiri help loop more 45'
Timo Boll ALC is the only Shakehand Composite blade I would play with as my main weapon!
-Fast enough (for me)
I've tried many composite blades in the past, TB ALC is the best one so far.
Very Dwelly + Soft Feel + Not much vibration - These qualities make this blade amazing for loop topspin and counter topspin . Works amazing w/ any Tenergy 05 like rubbers (Hexer, Genius etc) . Highly Recommended for any topspin loopers !
Very good blade in control for soft touches and flicks over-table like a 5-ply. With enough power and speed for loop drive, close to a 7-ply. Best match with Japanese or European tensor-like rubbers for a control attacker. Don't seem to go well with Chinese rubber.
My weapon of choice. The handle is a little small for my liking but it plays awesome with tenergy, has great feeling, and has perfect weight balance. Works better with harder/heavier rubbers than tbs for that reason (although tbs has more dwell). Recommended for allround attackers.
it was quite light and good at looping! I was enjoying using this ALC timo boll bat with double butterfly tenergy 05!
I'll by this blade in a couple of months and will give you a (hopefully great) review
Very good blade in combination with Hexer Max on FH and BH.
good control, good speed, use with rubber Roundell 2.1, good shot, a topspin of many turns. excellent.
It's a fast blade though not as fast as zlc it is still rather fast,
currently using tenergy 25 bothsides, it's speed, spin and control is very good alot faster than i expected. I chose the alc blade because it has arylate carbon wich has a high throw angle, but i also wanted good rubbers like tenergy 25 this rubber has a low throw angle so by putting them together you can have both great spin, speed and a normal throw angle. Great for the all out attack player who is looking for consistency and control. sorry if i'm boring you out. LOL
Very precise for middle range, very good handle and less vibrations.
I've used the Sriver G3FX, the Tenergy 05 and the Xiom Vega Europe. All of them working as expected.
So, now the only explanation for bad return is lack of practice.
this blade is very good,i used tenergy 05 on both sides 2.1 thick,it's very good,though heavy,its good for looping n smashing.
Nice looping blade overall. Good speed, touch, control and spin. Also, it's very stable. I'm gonna play with this blade for quite a while.
fast, heavy and pricy but well worth it. Awesome design as well
I've recently bought my Timo Boll ALC FL. It weights 92 gr.
First impressions: very fast, maybe a little slower than my Primo Carbon. Dwelly, easy to control.
I will post a very big review in a few days.
This is a good blade, but the reason for a low overall rating is because of the fact that this blade is essentially identical to the Timo Boll Spirit Blade, which is much cheaper. Even qualified butterfly distributors could not explain the difference between the spirit and ALC models.
