      Still, would you agree that the force pro blue is stiffer than the 5 ply all wood blades the OP compares it to (stiga infinity, an OSP V+ or a donic waldner 2016)?

      My memory might be off, but I...

      What sound do you miss on topspin specifically? Is it a speed glue/booster type “click” sound, or is it more like the sound of a ball bouncing directly on the blade? Are you hearing that sound on...
