I have 2 Achoomai ZLC and nothing composite can beat this blade in the bang for the buck category but even if we ignore the price it's still high up there in terms of quality of craftmanship and play.

The pricing of this wonderful blade sounds like an experiment on shoppers conducted by a grad student in economics: charge a 1/3 of what would be acceptable given what the competition does and let's see what happens. 

For example, I have a 84g ST vega Pro with R47 and G-1, also a TB ZLC and an Achoomai ZLC with the same 2 rubbers and frankly the TB ZLC is not superior at all, certainly not 5 times better, EVEN NOT ONE TIME BETTER, it is too fast for me anyway. 

I can go back and forth between the VP and the Achoomai ZLC . The Achoomai ZLC is a bit faster but not that much. For those who love the Vega Pro and the MJ, I'd say give a go to the Achoomai ZLC, it's somewhere in between, we can go from one to the other between all 3 without much adaptation time.

I keep mine, both!

I'll also vouch for Achoomai ZLC blade.  For those who didn't like the handle on Achoomai's first blade, this one is much better.  I actually find the control better than Vega Pro, but I didn't notice any difference in the speed except in hitting, where the Achoomai blade really shines.

I really don't want to put a negative mark on Achoomai Blade. Here is just how I feel about his ALC blade. The blade looks clean well made. 
I have been played with Butterfly Viscaria, and Sword Blue Feather. Both blades are interchangeable, I feel Blue Feather are a little bit faster than Viscaria, yet Viscaria gives more control. After impressed by the Achoomai ZLC blade review, I purchased an ALC blade from Amazon. I put my normal setup on this blade, National 39 orange H3 as forehand and T-80 as backhand.
 
When I did the sound evaluation, the blade's sound is not crisp. It feels like it is very doom. So that tells me the blade will not perform well in the mid range power play. 

In a short evaluation, I start with close range playing with touching shot, the ball is very controllable just as Viscaria. When I start to apply power, the blade feels stiff. Overall not bad for a ALC blade in close range play. When I start a mid range loop, the blade start to loose its power. It does not give enough power as the Viscaria nor blue feather. The blade feel hollow when I loop in the mid range. The ball does not kick as Viscaria nor Blue Feather. I feel I need to apply extra power just to make up for the blade loose. And this characteristic does conform to the sound test.

Overall, I am not quite impressed with this blade. Maybe it is because the blade I get is not as crisp as other ALC as it is a random pick by Amazon.

       Thanks a lot for your feedback.  You do not need to worry at all for providing open feedback. Yes, this ALC blade is designed for more control side that why the speed may not match with your expectation. For more power play, the ZLC one may suit you more.
     
        By the way, price on Amazon is 49.9 USD with free shipping and hard racket case then the price you paid for blade should be about 3X usd. It is a bit tough to compare with Viscaria for similar performance.
