      Lightbulb Ordered !

      I ordered it !
      Not a reasonable buy, but i was hypnotized by the nexy arche and kjh reviews. I hope i'll like the flared handle for my big palm.
      I'm a bit anxious to not see anymoree the ttgearlab review online. What could it mean ?

      ttgearlab also "deleted" the Nexy Karis review. I think it's a thing between ttgearlab and nexy.

      oh, thanks Chrym. So i'm not crazy !
      Is there any backup of both reviews somewhere ?

      It may be related to tibhar territory, and his partnership with nexy.
      I hope the blades on the market are the same that ttgearlab has tested.

      First test with tibhar mx-s was not conclusive, strange sound, lack of power and spin, mushy feeling.
      New test with chinese dynamic rubbers, vip 2018 and battle 2. This setup is well better. No more strange sound, linear behavior, middle low but enough power. I found the blade really flexible with medium hard outer ply... Large sweetspot... but still able of precise hard shot also. Short game is easy. Lack of spin on hard contact services, lack of spin on hard pushes.
      I like the handle a lot, nearly perfect for my hand.
      Battle 2 h36 was nearly perfect on this blade, but blade too soft for the boosted tuttle vip (h39) given semi mushy result. Conclusion is that dynamic chinese rubber of 45 deg on esn scale is the best choice.
      Testing to continue...

      I really like the blade and may do a more complete review soon. People who like all wood blades like Timo Boll W7 but more linear will like this.

      The Akkad finally became available in Korea USA markets.. Of course I brought one to the club... where a certain member tried it out and it sees to be stuck to his playing hand.

      I could write a lengthy review, but will keep it real short.

      Akkad feels right. Plays faster in most shots than KJH, but spin and high arc are there. I have been playing the Persson Power Play 6 months, got adjusted to it and I can use the Akkad and miss nothing.

      How is it different from Clipper, or other 7-ply all-wood blades? I would like to know if it as stiff as Clipper or Force Pro.

      The blade is not a brick. It is solid, but you can have some dwell with a dynamic rubber, enough on a fast loop to strike it well with good spin. I cannot explain well how I can feel the ball better with Akkad than a lot of other fast blades in its class.

      Nexy got Tibhar to set the price real low compared to other blades in this performance class. This is cool for those who buy.

      Next Level can you write that review please. I am interested in this one!
      Comparisons too Force Pro Blue?
      Is it more relevant with the new ABS balls!

      Is this blade flexy like a 5 ply (eg OSP Ultimate 2) or stiff like a tibhar force pro blue (semi stiff)?


      Anyone using it with short or mid pimples on bh?




      How much faster than Tibhar Force Pro Blue?

      I never tried those 2 blades so I couldn't compare. Akkad is a mostly linear OFF minus to OFF speed class blade. Is kinda stiffest, but can really spin if you have a spin stroke.

      Lasts auctioned tourney, I was playing with a decades old Nittaku Mono OFF wood blade .. did great, but broke the thing on half (and very nearly my entire wrist too) on a corner on a ball I thought was coming long.

      I had an Akkad ready as a spare... Had T05FX and Nittaku Hammond u tuned... was a boss of bh and fh spin. Won some great matches vs O2000 Cali crowd.

      Might have been my best tourney ever, even with a monitor ratings points loss... I showed ciuld compete and win at low to mid 2000 level.

      I basically pulled this bat out of bag under tourney pressure down 1-2 in games and won, despite not using it for months.

      You can literally pull an Akkad out of the bag and function right away like you missed nothing.

      Thanks Der_Echte

      It sounds very tempting, I like the sound of linear!
      And the speed sounds about right.

      In another thread you were commenting about hitting harder with a slower rubber, this is where I am with blades, I hit harder (or more accurately and consistently) with blades fairly stiff in off-/off range!

      But need stiffness for bh blocks.

      Whilst I have the body and looks of a 25 year old two winged looper!
      I have the soul of a 50 year old fat man blocker.

      I would say try a Nostalgic over an Akkad.

      Hold your breath every second time you want a new blade and instead spend the 50-100£ on an hour of multiball with a coach

      I been using force pro as my main bat for 2 years now, I'm only playing around the edges a bit, there might be something a bit better.

      What is the harm?

      You need to fight the addiction. Your level will increase dramatically if you stick to the same material for an extended period no matter how crap it is.

      I can say that a year with the slower Perrson Power Play did my game a lot of good.

      I can prolly use Akkad blind out of the bag after a long time not using it, such a class of blade is right for my game like many wood blades.

      I am familiar with both the wood and the kind of rubbers.

      Personally, I feel heavier is better for blocking and getting close to the ball is even better than what your blade is
