I'm looking for a blade that's faster than bty Korbel. I tried out timo boll alc and I really liked it, but It's a bit expensive and I would like a little more dwell time

What do you guys think about Korbel sk7? How does its speed compare to timo boll alc?

Timo Boll Spirit I think is a little slower.

Also Timo Boll ZLF is a good blade, more dwell time but still no slouch.

Does it have to be Butterfly blade or?

So many good blades from other companies on the market, some even 3 or 4 times cheaper...

Are there any good 5-ply all wood blades that are slightly faster than Korbel while still maintain good feeling and control?

Would stiga emerald be better? It's almost the same price as eternity where I live.

Gewo Force ARC is great blade and popular in Serbia as a cheaper substitute to Boll ALC. Couple of players of Serbia national team use Gewo Force ARC.

Well, there have been so many similar topics that could easily be found via the search option in the right top corner.

Like Master of loops said, Gewo Force ARC is a cheap substitute for Boll ALC. Donic Baum Esprit is also cheap but good carbon blade, although not arylate but aramid. Little slower, nice sweet spot and nice feeling overall. Liked it so much it might be my next blade..

Some allwood blades that have been mentioned and recommended earlier are Xiom Diva (slower than Korbel), Offensive S, Xiom Musa Asia that some say is an upgraded version of Offensive S, or Zeta Offensive (7 ply), Stiga versions of those blades, Donic Burn OFF- and OFF, Tibhar Stratus Powerwood, etc...

Like I said, try searching through older topics where you can find everything you need.

Tibhar Samsonov Alpha SGS is great.
Good straight handle.
Limba outer ply so similar feel, but median layer is a wood almost as hard as koto, so you get good speed and a more stable/consistent hit

I suggested eternity because it is also limba. As far as i remember, emerald is ebony which has a harder outer ply.

Is eternity similar in speed to stradivarius?
