As a Butterfly contract participant, I’ve the privilege to check out new tools just like the Lin Yun Ju Super ZLC. I paired the blade with Dignics 09c on the forehand, in addition to Dignics 05 and Tenergy 19 for the backhand.
This blade is one in all Butterfly’s high-end blades, and it outfitted with the Tremendous ZLC fiber. A somewhat stiff carbon fiber, with unparalleled velocity, constant bounce, and enormous candy spot. Surprisingly, within the LYJ blade, it has a somewhat softer feeling when in comparison with different Tremendous ZLC blades in Butterfly’s lineup, such because the Zhang Jike Super ZLC I attempted earlier than. The lightness added with the softer feeling makes this a wonderful blade for gamers who stand near the desk and use aggressive backhand and forehand counters. Forehand feels somewhat common for a carbon blade, with good velocity, energy, and a big candy spot makes the strokes very constant.
The specialty of this blade is the backhand. It’s tuned with simply the correct amount of velocity, softness, and enjoying really feel. Taking part in backhand was an absolute pleasure, my strokes had been very constant, and the velocity in addition to the sensation had been good. The issue with this blade comes while you step additional away from the desk. Many of the strengths near the desk don’t seem when far desk, such because the softness and energy. Solely the ball goes very quick, however the penetrating energy a bit missing, which is one thing loads of gamers together with myself search for. Brief sport on the Lin Yun Ju Tremendous ZLC was surprisingly good.
For being so quick, it has good quick ball management, and flicks are straightforward to execute. As soon as once more, the backhand flicks with this blade really feel wonderful. Butterfly have someway created a blade with nearly an ideal backhand. Nevertheless, gamers who can’t hit “by” the carbon layer will discover this blade uncontrollable, as a result of a sure stage of consistency comes after you hit by the carbon layer. Tenergy 19 on the LYJ Tremendous ZLC is a good mixture on the backhand for intermediate to superior gamers, as a consequence of its softness and ease of use with out compromising velocity, spin and energy.
Nevertheless for many professionals, Dignics 05 is the higher combo since a simple to have interaction but more durable sponge raises the standard and consistency of the ball. For the forehand, I like to recommend more durable rubbers just like the Tenergy 05 Hard, Dignics 05, in addition to Dignics 09c with this blade, for the reason that blade wants a more durable rubber to assist compensate for its softer nature. On a small notice, straight deal with on the LYJ Tremendous ZLC is somewhat skinny, making it tough to fill out one’s hand. Even with small arms, I’ve issue preserving a constant grip on the blade. I don’t advocate this blade to learners, since that is nonetheless far too quick and uncontrollable for them.
Nevertheless intermediate and superior gamers will take pleasure in its softer feeling and constant bounce. It’s spectacular that Butterfly have managed to create softer blade with such a stiff and quick carbon sheet. All in all, the Lin Yun Ju Tremendous ZLC is a somewhat distinctive blade in Butterfly’s excessive finish lineup, as a consequence of its distinctive feeling, wonderful backhand, and lightness making it a best choice for gamers adopting the near the desk methods.
