    In other words, Hipnotoc is balance agnostic and can make a blade that is head heavy, center balanced or handle heavy as he desires. Which was my point in that thread where someone was trying to find a very specific blade type but one that was also handle heavy.

    So I suggested a custom blade maker.

    The post Hipnotic just quoted from that thread shows he knows how to make a blade with whatever balance he chooses.

    There were some differences in blade construction that I discovered later. Because I didn't had access to a real W968 I just went with the information I discovered online, which I found were untrue. That blade is in fact closer to the Innerforce ALC in construction, but there is still a difference in the grade of the ALC layer. My blade uses a higher density Aramid Carbon layer, so it might be in fact closer to the ZLC variant in feel. The Innerforce ALC has a frequency in the 1300-1350Hz range. I've learned a bit since then and can use different Composites or density depending on what the customer wants.

    WRC is very close to Ayous in density, however the grain structure is very different, resembling more a spruce. That makes the blade softer but at the same time more direct, if that makes sense.

    Regarding the Balance issue, here's a post I made in another thread:
    Thanks Hipnotic. Great blades!

    This one of two blades I made for a forum member. It's inspired in the Timo Boll Spark, hence the very cool orange and grey handle.

    Sergio it's really strange the low FS using carbon, are you sure the frequency of resonance?

    Not strange at all. The frequency is related to the stiffness of the blade, and this blade is thin, so not very stiff.

    Yes, very similar. But this kind of pine is a little bit harder, it gives a very solid feeling.

    More quarantine experiments.

    I have to admit there was an inspiration in a certain recent Butterfly blade I love the look of the Revoldia, so I wanted to make something similar without looking like a flat out copy. Composition wise it's also similar, except for the CNF layer, however I experimented with something I hope will give similar results.

    This is actually a partscaster I put together a few years ago. Still my favorite guitar!

    I have just received my blade from Hipnotic and it is awesome. So nice that I almost dare not use it, but instead put it in a frame and hang it on the wall. It looks that good and must be worth 4 points per end!
