Butterfly Lin Gaoyuan ALC Review

Butterfly Lin Gaoyuan ALC Review. Amazing blade. It’s 83g-90g. A quick but soft blade due to the ALC layers. I recommend this blade to anyone searching for a rapid blade with a soft feel. World-class quality.

Tenergy 05fx for control-oriented gameplay, Tenergy 05 Hard for a faster game, and Andro Rasanter R42 for mid-distance attacking game. The ball is loaded with spin.


Butterfly Lin Gaoyuan ALC

Lin Gaoyuan, a Chinese superstar, already employs this powerful ALC blade.

The classic 5-ply construction with two ALC fibers provides a medium-firm, yet precise touch that enables offensive spin play from any distance. Its medium weight and ALC punch make it ideal for aggressive table tennis.

It was the previous blade of Zhou Qihao. I have a personal review of Lin Gaoyuan ALC here.

Which rubbers fit well

You can use Dignics 09C forehand and Tenergy 05 backhand. The blade feels wonderful while hitting the ball. I can feel the ball hitting the wood all the way to my hand. Rallying, this blade feels almost identical to my old blade (a Butterfly Viscaria).

There are significant distinctions when I loop with the Lin Gaoyuan. The ball “kick’s effect” is faster, but the feeling and control remain.


The main advantages

The blade is resilient and offers excellent speed and control. With the mid-distance attack, my loop is faster and stronger. Stronger backhand counter-spin close to the table Incredibly fast counter looping forehand after touching opponent’s side.

Blocking is still controlled, but the punch block appears easier to execute. The spin is still visible even if the Lin Gaoyuan appears faster than the Viscaria due to the considerable dwell period. As stated previously, I only sense the speed difference when the blade is looped or smashed.

I’d say the blade is for intermediate and advanced players. The close-to-mid-range attacker, in my opinion, is the ideal suit for this blade.
