The First Blade Equipped With Super Arylate/Carbon

The Butterfly Viscaria Super ALC blade is the latest advance to emerge from Butterfly's famed R&D department. With increased power and softer touch, this update on the classic Viscaria blade creates new options for players from everywhere around the table.

Rubber recommendations for this blade include Tenergy 05 and Dignics 05, which allow for quick attacks close to the table. For even more dynamic spin play, players should consider Butterfly Dignics 09C. With a tacky top sheet and a harder version of Butterfly Spring Sponge X, players can generate unbelievable spin with the new technology.

To increase the grip on this blade, you can add Soft Grip Tape, providing more grip and comfort to the racket handle. Another great choice to extend the longevity of your racket is adding side tape to the blade, protecting the wood in the event it is hit on the table.

FAQ: Does Megaspin sell Japan-made Butterfly blades?

Some Butterfly blades like Korbel and Grubba are produced in factories both in Europe and in Japan, so they exist in 2 variants. When a Japanese blade has a Europe-made version, we always carry the Japanese variant. Other blades like Butterfly Timo Boll Offensive are only made in China so we cannot carry a Japanese variant of these blades.

Reviews of Butterfly Viscaria Super ALC (6)

I feel this is softer and faster compared to Vis. Like Vis pairs seamlessly with any mid hard rubber on BH, though is very very (very!) picky with FH rubber - D05 is acceptable but ever so slightly soft. D80 too reactive on defense but great for attacking. T05H difficult to control, not enough dwell, needing lots of systematic training. T05 in 1.9 surprised me being better, though not in 2.1 - weird right?

Vega Pro, Nexy Etika 51, GA8 50 were not quite there, missing something. MX-D was good for the first week or so before the factory boosting wore off. After countless months of constant changing, Rakza Z EH turned out to be my no.1, followed by Battle 2 (40 deg) and T05 1.9 as top 3 FH. I would expect D09c/boosted National H3 BS to be great but as RZEH is less than half the price of these means no need to waste my money to find out. Any of the forementioned on BH is fine except maybe Battle 2/H3 would be too slow on this wing. This blade has less of that springiness found in the normal slower Vis (perhaps the higher density weave of SALC?), so attacking feels more stable especially when it gets tight i.e. 7-9 down, 9-8 up, 10-10.

I am old guy and an intermediate player with a rating of 1,600. I have played with Viscaria ALC blade and Tenergy 05 for many years. My style is smashing and blocking except for looping the backspins from opponents with FH and BH. Other than that, I do not do any spins, just smashing, pushing, flicking and blocking. For the table tennis, there are three stages with the playing: 1). Your serving. 2). Return your opponents serving. 3). Holding stage when you and your opponents hit the ball forward and backward. I am good with the first two stages. But, most of the time, I lost to the advanced level opponents at the 3) stage. I notice I am stucked with my intermediate level for many years and can not move on to the advanced level mainly because my smashing and blocking are not powerful enough to stop the opponents' top and side spins or heavy smashing. I need a blade which is powerful enough to hit the ball hard enough to stop the opponents' attack. The Viscaria ALC is very good and I have played with it for many years. The only thing it is missing is that, it does not have enough power I need to overwhelming the opponents' powerful attack. When the Viscaria Super ALC came out with the fanfare that, it is "much faster" than Viscaria ALC, I waited for over four month and finally got one a few weeks ago. But, to my biggest disappointment, the new Viscaries Super ALC is NOT any faster than original Viscaria ALC. if somebody insists it is faster than Viscaria, it probably is tiny little bit "faster". In my opinion, this new blade is NOT worth the much higher money you paid for this new blade. The original Viscaria ALC almost have everything this new Viscaria Super ALC has. Do not waste money on this new blade if you want to have "faster" blade.

Updated: Super alc has more dwell time and spin than the original Viscaria. Put Friendship Battle 2 provincial blue sponge for FH and Tibhar mxp for BH and you will be unstoppable on all your strokes. So controllable but powerful!!!

Viscaria super alc, what a great blade!Not so stiff or fast but flexible and really spinny!Great for spin game or spin to spin !Great on serving, a lot of spin can be generated.Great for blocking ,blocks can be placed with extreme detail, minimum vibration that has help a lot.Very nice flare handle sits very well on my big hands.A few cons are: pushing isn't very easy and ball goes long, also the contact timing must be precise for spinning the ball or else the ball fly away!!!
Paired with tenergy 05fx forehand and 64fx backhand.

1?This is a blade made for advanced players, so do not buy it if you are new to this game.
2?I suggest you to combine this blade with medium hard rubbers , such as T19,R45.
3?Slower than Viscaria normal version with low power , it can generate more spin compare to normal power.
4?Compare with normal viscaria you can clearly feel the blade flexible when you hit with medium or big power especially on forehand.
5?The feel of backhand is similar to Viscaria which is excellent.
