The problem with making "clone" blades is that even commercial blades can have a great variation within the same model. So, achieving the specific feeling the customer has in mind can be a hard task. On top of that I also need to comply with the weight and balance requested, which makes the job even harder.

    Here the owner was looking for a soft innerforce ALC style blade, and even though my initial suggestion for this blade was A-C, which is a bit harder than ALC, he still wanted to use the ALC. Still, I misjudged how soft he wanted the blade, and in the end it turned out to be to be too soft and too slow for him. So what happened? Basically the core was too heavy, which constrained the resin application on the fiber to keep the weight in check, making it softer than usual. Lesson learned. He also wanted a Viscaria type handle, and in that regard I think I did not disappoint.

    Hipnotic, I like the form of this handle, Its a little larger than BTY's normal size?

    The shape is basically the same. In this case I also tried to get the thickness right ,which on a Viscaria goes from 24.8 to 23mm. Personally I like it a bit thicker like 25 to 23.5mm. But the most important aspect, and that is ignored many times, is the perimeter of the handle. Here we have a tight curve, with a relatively flat top, which makes it feel bulkier.

    Sergio is totally right. The usual parameters given by companies do not give any indication whether the handle is seen as „thick“ or not. The most important part is: is it rounded a lot (e.g. long v) or is it „edgy“ like Timo Boll ST.
    An edgy 23mm handle can be „thicker“ than a rounded 25mm

    Sorry but I can't. I barely have time to deal with the work as it is, I don't have time to make videos.

    It was designed the other way around, so that the Bh feels a bit more direct. But it's all a matter of personal taste.

    I would word this: Koto-ALC-Ayous vs Koto-Ayous-ALC since it is the same three plies in slightly different order. And leaving out the third ply makes it seem like one side is composite and the other side is not.

    That said, I knew what you meant.

    can you share its playing properties as compared with IF zlc?

    when you mentioned about it being on steroids, are you saying that it is faster and have a longer curve?

    Well, this is all conjecture because I haven't tested the blade, but this was my reasoning when I made it. Smoked Eucalyptus is harder than Koto, so the blade will have a crispier touch. Base speed feels a bit higher, but the kick on high impact will be a lot higher due to the szlc.

    Western Red Cedar is considered a nice alternative to Hinoki, but it's not exactly the same, not quite as dynamic. In result, this blade came out a little slower than what I was expecting. Still, the feeling is exceptional, a clear feedback without annoying vibrations. It's relatively stiff with a medium arc, but soft, which makes it ideal for controlled game near the table.

    That is beautiful. The grains of the top ply, the core, the handle.....That is art and I bet it plays amazingly.
