Has anyone tried a Timo Boll ALC and Viscaria with T05 Hard? If so, how was it? Which blade would T05 Hard play better on?

although they are similar blades with different handles, there are times the tb alc felt a little more stiff. Viscaria is a safer choice.

I prefer Viscaria to TB ALC and the former plus T05H is perfect.

They are quite similar, so which ever blade is your normal preference (due to handle shape mainly) will be better for you with any rubber.  If you have no particular preference, go with Viscaria for the reason Yogi gave, as Viscaria is SOMETIMES a bit more forgiving.  The thing to keep in mind is that individual variations between one Viscaria and another are sometimes as large as the difference between a Viscaria and a TB-ALC.  One difference is that the TB-ALC has something about the top surface of the blade, perhaps UV light treatment, that makes it a bit shinier and harder.

Thanks for the info. I currently use the Timo Boll ALC but was wondering if anyone has played with both blades using that rubber to see if there is much difference in feeling.

to most players, viscaria feels just a little bit softer than tbalc. I am currently having t05 h on FH with a viscaria and I love the combination. I have tried it on several butterfly blades, including a 90 g TB spirit and an 87 gram thalc. I did not like 05h on those blades as much.
