Do you use a wood or a carbon blade?

It WAS actually one of the fastest blade in the 38mm cell ball and speed glue era. With Mark V on each side it was a fast looping machine. The blade that made you a better player, but you had to train a lot to control that ûber fast speed.

I bought the regular Clipper wood just one month ago. Really like the drives and blocks and that it still allows great spin possibilities and great short game. Well balanced blade! My only problem is that the arc is lower or that the trajectory is longer than I’m used to. I will be changing the Rakza Z on it to D09c, which I’m more familiar with to see how it plays.

Would have been interesting how heavy their testing blades were. Clipper blades vary a lot in weight. A clubmate has one which weighs 85 gramms, mine is 97!

I am glad you guys recognize the value of 7-ply all-wood blades :) I have been advocating for their value (and reviewing them) for the past couple of years. Nice review.

I wish they’ll outlaw composite some day. We’ll have more rallies 😎
On the other hand, I have a composite blade...

Tango, I hear you... Your countryman Sergey Tsos will testify that if I use one of Nate's latest all wood blades and unwrap me a Quarter Pounder on the opponent that Der_Echte is not filing complaints with ittf over how fast the ball goes.

Is the Clipper slightly softer, more controlable, and has lower throw compare to Clipper CR?

I actually went back to 7 ply all wood blades last year and all my blades now are all 7 ply all wood blades. The kind of rubber nowadays do not needneed blades to be too fast.

I have never played mit the Clipper CR so can't tell, but it seems that it is harder and faster than the classic Clipper Wood. The guy from https://ttgearlab.com/ uses the CR as a reference blade when he compares 7plies. Speedwise it's always one of the fastest all wood blades.

I'm surprised you rated the Clipper as more flexible than the Timo Boll ALC.
