    If I were to fix it I would first check if the top ply was secure in the middle, but I would probably remove it completely and apply a new one.

    The blade is genuine, that's how Butterfly's ALC looks like, the woven pattern is unique and no one else uses it.

    The "softness" that is associated with these blades has an explanation, basically...

    I was kidding Der 🙂

    I saw a picture of the side of the blade somewhere, but didn't pay much attention. I did notice it had a thick second layer, which was also something he had on his Butterfly...

    Can I reveal it? 😁

    Honestly, I think a 7 ply is the most sensible solution for an attacking chopper nowadays, so I'm not surprised JSH and Oscar went in that direction. I've been making a few...

    I was just posting one pic to get the games started. I'm documenting the build but my idea was to make a thread once it's complete.

    You can count me in. Time to finally put that ebony board to good use 😁

    I've always been a DIY kind of guy. About 3 years ago I returned to TT after a 5 year hiatus and found that the ball changed...

    Yes, the medial ply matters a lot. It affects hardness, rebound, lateral and torsional stability (sweetspot) and feedback. But in this case there is a much simpler explanation: your premise is wrong....

    I don't think he scammed anybody, or at least that it was his intention. And of course it was only my opinion, based on facts, but still just my opinion. Manufacturers use the term ALC loosely, and I...

    Diolen is softer so it does everything a little less. Less speed, smaller sweetspot, but it can give more control depending on the perspective. It also feels a little different, not so dynamic and...

    I'm guilty of using this in the beginning without knowing what it really was. After I found out I stopped calling it ALC and just use the real name. I still use it from time to time. The darker blue...

    Medial ply is most definitely Limba, but the Viscaria doesn't have a Limba medial and that's not ALC. That's "chinese ALC" aka Diolen-Carbon, many manufactures use and knowingly or unknowingly call...

    Nice that you mentioned that because I was totally forgetting about Cedars. Yes, they are a good option and the next best thing along with cypress. It's all about finding good boards for that, but I...

    As I've said, one ply blades behave differently. There are a lot more variables to build a good, or at least playable, one ply. Firstly you need stiffness in all directions to have sufficient...

    I'm not gonna get into the whole one ply blade thing because they behave a little differently, but I just want to clear up a misconception. A 7 ply blade is not stiffer than a equivalent 5 ply of the...

    It was not meant as a sales pitch, just trying to demystify some aspects of custom blades. Of course if you choose to go that route I will be glad to help.
