The outer ply has a much bigger effect on stiffness than changing the inner plies or the core, because they are further apart. If I used Koto, it would certainly be higher. Here, there won't be a big difference in stiffness whether I use ZLC or SLZC, because those layer are close together. But there will be a big difference in hardness and stability of the blade (aka sweet spot). So, given these factors, I would rate this blade more in the OFF range.
    No please don't stop, It gives a ball park value, that's worth a lot.
    If You do then You should specify a DEF to OFF+ rating.
    (Right now I don't recall if You do on Your home page.)

    Hi Sergio/Hipnotic,

    Frequency pls as those numbers makes more sense vs the speed ratings.

    For those who went into custom blades or wanted a custom blades, they would get a better understanding from frequencies because that explain the stiffness of the blade via the wood composition and types of fibers used.

    Keep up the good work!

    I’m the lucky owner of the blade in question. It’s my second time ordering from Sérgio and I’m seeing a risk of this becoming a habit

    A brief review of the blade and the process before ordering follows:

    After playing with ALC-blades for some time (roughly 18 months) I decided to go all-wood as template recommendations suggest. The Tibhar Stratus Powerwood was the blade of choice and altough it woorked for the most part I couldn’t really cope with FH loops vs. backspin (usually my strongest shot). Also the head-heaviness of the TSPW was really pronounced which I didn’t enjoy. Hence I contacted Sérgio.

    We had a discussion around composition but to be honest I knew I wanted and trusted the suggestions from Sérgio. What I askes for was a larger handle (but not as monstrously large a my previous order), lower balance and a bit more speed and flex than the TSPW.

    The blade arrived and I glued it with D09C FH and Rakza Z BH. It plays just as I wished for it to do. For me I think it is a reasonable compromise between what lets me win some matches and enjoy my game and what benefits my development. I have a bit more speed and lower balance than with the TSPW. My FH opening loops works again and I’m very happy about the handle. The one thing I would change (well it happen sooner or later) is asking for slightly wider wings and bottom part of the blade face. That, however is me developing as a buyer of custom blades.

    As has been mentioned about Sérgios work it really is quite amazing.

    Yup Anton Sérgio's work really sucks. I mean just terrible. That is why my friend ordered from him and the also made one of the most outstanding blades EVER.

    Keep sucking Sérgio, the world is depending on you.

    The difference a top ply makes. Blue fig is soft, almost as soft as Ayous, so even at 6.15mm this blade is not stiff at all. The feeling is relatively soft, but speed wise it is faster than the frequency reading suggests, probably in the Off- range.

    Available FS.

    I also thought the same when I finished it, but I can guarantee this one was totally improvised.

    I see some interest in combi blades so here's one I recently made. This one is inner Limba/ALC on one side and outer ZLC/Koto on the other, with an Ayous core. The difference in composition is not big enough to create a massive speed distinction between sides. However, there is definitely a difference in feel, with the Koto side being more direct. Speed wise it is probably in the Off-/Off range.

    Available FS.

    Composition: Limba / Ayous / ALC / Ayous / Ayous / ZLC / Koto
    Weight: 89.6g
    Thickness: 5.75mm
    Freq.: 1320 Hz
    Balance: 3.3cm (Med)
