Butterfly Timo Boll CAF review

The Timo Boll CAF includes a novel carbon fiber called “control assist fiber”, which combines greater stability, precision, and responsiveness. The 5 ply blade is recommended for players seeking a high ball dwell time special fiber blade.


Butterfly Timo Boll CAF

Initially, it’s a mix of wood and carbon. Mixture of Stiga Allround Classic and Timo Boll ALC. Great looping sensation. Crisp and long dwell time. The blade feels more wooden when hitting slowly, but more like a carbon blade when looping quickly.

Excellent control. Easy to loop. This makes looping middle and low height balls a breeze. You can return anything. Its lack of spin sensitivity adds to its control. Blocking is easy. This blade is very versatile, you can do anything with it. Helps looping, especially with low balls (and backspin balls). Sweet spot is amazing. It’s big, like an ALC blade.


About the Carbon layer

CA fiber is a special material made from wood that helps ‘hold’ the ball for better control. Recommended for players graduating from all-wood blades to special material rackets.
