IMHO this is the most beautifully designed blade from Butterfly. It also happens to be amazing to play with. I am cycling between Victas Koki Niwa, Zhang Jike ALC and this one - all with Tenergy 05 rubbbers. Out of this lineup, the Harimoto is the slower and more controllable - very similar to my Innerforce ALC-S. I probably prefer the Zhang Jike ALC (which is also $50 cheaper), but any of these blades work very similarly once you get used to them over a few weeks of play. Great for short to mid table play, great spin, fast when you need it, great in touch play.
