Hey guys!

This weeks unboxing video brings you the new XIOM Icecream blades. What is so unique with these blades is that they have two different layers of carbon on opposing sides, one being ALC and one being ZLC. In this video I unbox both blades and give an overview of my initial impressions. Stay tuned for the upcoming full review of these new blades. Let us know in the comments what you think of this new hybrid carbon concept!

Can’t wait for the AZXi. Maybe a solution for me backhand.

they are definitely not first ..... i build multiple blades with different compositions for each side ... and i know they have been blades like this before i made my first one . still nice if someone continues this way .
Attacking defenders are looking for such type of composition for example
And the composition is also wrong ... according the color of the inner layers... it is definitely not limba, it is too dark .

Azxi is limba-limba-alc/zlc. You have to take into co sideration that there 2 hybrid blades are patterned after 4 known blades.

The ice cream blades are hybrid blades. It is like having 2 blades packed into 1 blade. The azxi is like innerforce alc on 1 side and inneroforce zlc on the other. The azx is like zjk alc and zlc combined also.

I get this one... But I'm pointing on the fact that second veneer is not limba

Nope, the 2nd veneer is limba. Looking at the pics is not enough.

In the video we can see Jeoung Youngsik is using Hurricane 3 blue sponge on the forehand. That is surprising

Hey Yogi,

Did you try a different hurricane 3 on your stiga dynasty carbon? How were the results?

Yes, i tried a regular red boosted h3 and it was good. It was probably an overboosted h3 that made my shots hit the net.

It is similar with the ML but onoy in the alc side. Quality of course is much higher for azxi.

Dan when you drop the video of Dima Ovtcharov ALC blade?

Look like top quality blades, but soooo much colours and print stuffs makes these blades ugly for my taste. I like old Xiom style like Stradivarius from first print version, from Hayabusa to now Icecream Xiom modern blades have too much when its about print design.

Thanks for your reply. But, I meant how does ML5 compare with Stiga dynasty carbon? Are they similar or very different?Which one do you prefer?

They are different because they have different materials and construction.
