Butterfly Tiago Apolonia ZLC Review


Butterfly and Tiago Apolonia create the new fantastic blade. This is a real beauty.Tiago Apolonia blade The elements of Portugal national flag are printed on the blade.

Tiago Apolonia ZLC is inner (Innerforce layer technology) carbon which means that have two soft wood layers ( limba) above the ZL Carbon layer, giving the blade a softer and controlled touch, while maintaining the typical ZLC precision and punch.

The crisp connection off this blade is a sensation . Two soft limba layers gives the huge dwell time which produce lot off spin in every stroke.

“The blade has the huge sweet spot”

Apolonia ZLC is suited best for players looking for the spin dynamic ZLC carbon with a softer touch with great control. It has perfect combination off spin, speed and control.
