This blade is marketed by Butterfly as being an upgraded and slightly softer version of Viscaria. I would say that seems about right - I have moved from Primorac, Innerforce ALC-S and Viscaria. Lately I've been playing a Harimoto Tomokazu, a Koki Niwa and the Zhang Jike ALC - all with Tenergy 05 1.9mm rubbers and they all play very, very similarly. Fast, loopy, spinny. The Jike is a tad softer and feels a little less ruthless than the Viscaria which I still have a weird soft spot for (the metallic high pitch sound and feel). I tell myself that the softer feel is what I need, and this blade seems like it packs everything I want in a bat (in combo with the T05s): Spin, fairly light, great power and gears in short to mid range, great service, controllable, fun.
