EVERY SPEC of this blade is exactly the same, they will both play equally. Lin blade is simply viscaria with different handles and a slight price increase. Every blade depending on weight and wood used will different so it is extremely hard to find 2 same viscarias or 2 sam LG or same vis/LG. LG played like most of players do with Viscaria until now, so how butterfly does it is they simply take the same blade Viscaria and desing working with LG a new handle a new writing on the head, I guarantee there is no difference at all. I will say that LG blade has a nice handle design and I am sure many will buy.
Just to add if Francizka FRANZ gets a new blade with will simply be his current he plays with which is Apolonia ZLC with his new designed handle.
 
I am sure that there will be EJ replies saying stuff like, LG is faster or LG is slower than my viscaria or LG is better etc. To me if the specs are the same, manufacturer the same, weight the same. They will play very close almost the same. Shocked

If it looks like a viscaria, sounds like a viscaria, feels like a viscaria and plays like a viscaria, maybe it’s close to a viscaria.
j/k...

The fl handles between a Tb alc, Viscaria and Zjk alc are different and that makes those blades so apart already. I think we underestimate the importance of the handle. 

I see all those Alc outer blades from Butterfly the same way I see a Soulspin blade with a menu of handles from which we pick one.

The moment I held the blade in my hand, I felt a shock sent across my body. I later realized I had gained LGY's backhand technique and also lost weight too.

If anyone wants a better version of Viscaria costing 30% of its price go to Yinhe V14 Pro. It´s faster (6.0 mm thickness) with same wood layers and excellent craftsmanship. 
Measurements are exactly the same: 157x150 and handle 100mm. Mine came with 87g.

A pretty version Viscaria ahahah. I find other companies trying to replicate viscaria but to no avail because the feeling of these replicas is different to viscaria especailly from mid distance you will feel the difference. Some are too stiff or soft. The closest one I found was Donic Ovtcharov Carbon but the feeling still does not match Viscaria. I heard yasaka alnade is very good but Id imagine it wouldnt be as good as viscaria still.
