Same review as "Innershield ZLF" since it is the same blade but the next generation.
A soft feeling but a stiff blade! ZLF layers provides stiffness to this blade, but with a very soft feeling wich is GREAT. IMHO, Innershield ZLF is suited to LP with sponge, at least 0,5mm, and a medium to hard backside. My personnal setup is : Grass D-Tecs (0,5mm) and I moved back to Mark V HPS (2mm). I managed to solve the equation of the plastic ball, wich was hard as hell and led me to try so many material... The end has come with this blade and those rubbers.
Talking about speed, i'd say that Innershield Layer ZLF is not a slow blade at all, but not as fast as Joo or Matsushita Offensive. Very balanced for chopping or attacking in any circumstances.
One of my favorite blades ever, although it's on the expensive side.

I'm not a specialist in defencive blades, but play in semi-defensive style. This blade is not slow and can spin very good. Feelings sometimes remind me of Primorac Off-. Played against one man with another Off- blade and than with Innershield and he was shocked that Def blade is much faster in game.
