    Those weights aren't too bad! My OSP V+ setup w/ 2x nittaku fastarc G-1s and a couple layers of glue comes to 192g.

    Able to try all three blades. Surprise, I spent the most time with the one most similar to teh 105g 5 ply koto outer... the 104 koto outer blade with the more round ST handle. Absolute beast on top end when I bang it. Can spin slow. Can counter, can hit. Can serve and receive with touch (I am accustomed to both rubbers in my sig) Since this blade is similar enough to the original 105g 5 ply of similar construction, I was also familiar with it, and thus should be able and was able to most everything I did before with equal control. Hard to tell top end, this one felt juicier, but it could be due to all new rubbers - that tends to make any blade feel real juicy.

    So of course it was resounding success could pull this puppy out of the bag anytime and function well ASAP.

    Took of the D80 that did not cover the whole balde and slapped on a used sheet of T05... prolly increased overall weight to 210 grams... still, this blade felt same if nt the lightest bat of the three. Need to hit more with it, couldn't test the top end like I wanted, maybe the Koto outer baldes have better top end, who knows until I can really get teh balls to pound.

    Need to spend more time with the oval ST handled koto outer blade to know it. but I think I can work with that one too. My initial 3 minute shot sequences tell me it is similar enough to the original 105 g 5 ply koto outer blade.

    Need to spend more time to Get the TSOS, out friend Sergey to put down his favorite blade and play with any of Nate latest Koto blades. Sergey can adapt right away once he uses any of those Koto outer blades. It has been almost magical.

    The other thing we all need to stepu our game is to get Sergey TSOS to register and start contributing to the forum. He has SO MANY H3 stories to tell.

    The Tsos had a good laugh at my comments declaring him an H3 expert. he will have a better laugh operating the koto blades tonight. He also told me he stole a quick hit with one of them Monday.

    Had my hits today. Can confirm that the 104g rounder shaped handle Koto blade is the one I like better.

    Could use some more time with the 110 g FL blade that really feels like it is 85 grams... still felt good enough to break out sight unseen and rock with it though.

    It is official. The Sergey Tsos unit luvs on the flatter, move oval ST Handle Koto outer blade.

    Right away he did everything he wants... and he normally uses a slower, more vibraty blade with slightly faster and firmer rubbers.

    Are there any big differences you notice between how the two different core woods play (Port Orford Cedar vs Sitka Spruce)?

    I would need some more time with the oval shaped St handled koto outer blade... both perform well, the one with the round handle seems faster. Shots land using both. I just seem to gravitate to the handle shape of th the rounder st blade.

    Spent a few hrs wih the oval shaped koto outer blade... similar feel, not too different. Overall speed of this one maybe tiny slower. FH is a tad better with this blade, BH a little better with the round shape ZFL handle.

    Liked it a lot. A real keeper.

    I could pull this blade out with familiar rubbers ans be able to function right away if I was swapping out blades in a match for a valid reason like last tourney where I snapped a blade in two on a corner on a ball I thought was long, but wasn't.
