Boll Mezzoforte Review – very good all-round blade

Boll Mezzoforte Review – very good all-round blade.


Boll Mezzoforte

The Boll Mezzoforte may be played in any scenario thanks to its modest weight, moderate speed, and easy handling. Its medium hardness allows for a long ball dwell time, making it easier to spin the ball and allowing for a wide range of playing techniques.

There are two distinct types of rubber from Butterfly: Roundell Soft and Bryce High Speed, both of which have excellent feel and are extremely controllable.

Those who like a more controlled style of play may choose to consider the Butterfly Tenergy 64FX, or Sriver rubbers.


Fit well with long pips rubbers

Butterfly Feint Lengthy II or Feint Long III are good choices for players who like to confuse their opponents with their use of long pips.

When the pips can be twisted, Feint Long II was created to maximize the effect of long pips-out rubbers. The top sheet of the Feint Long III, built for aggressive choppers, is soft and flexible, while the sponge is also soft.
