    This one was based on a W968-5, a w968 with an Ebony top layer, but with a bigger core, so basically a W968x-5! Complicated name 😅

    Weight: 94g
    Thickness: 6.05mm

    This is a blade for close to the table play. Stiff and fast with a low trajectory, but a soft feeling. The head size and handle are a little smaller than usual to allow faster FH to BH transitions and faster wrist movements.

    Available FS.

    Weight: 85.3g
    Thickness: 6.9mm

    It may not seem like it, but this one was a real challenge. I was asked for a inner zc blade with a thinner kiri core, smaller head size but head heavy, all within a limit of about 85g. Kiri cores and head heavy usually don't go hand in hand, and it's even more difficult with a smaller head size. Luckily I have in stock some really heavy Kiri, but it still took a lot of planning to make sure the weight of all the layers was correct, in order to get a good result in the end.

    Composition: Limba / Limba / ZC / Kiri / ZC / Limba / Limba
    Weight: 86.2g
    Thickness: 5.7mm
    Freq.: 1300Hz

    A challenge because it also had to be that thin?

    I can confirm that this blade is a beauty - its here right in Front of me.

    Even though Sergio has never done a Maze Passion Rebuilt before, he got really close to the original feel of the blade.

    Sergio is a great guy and mentioned every little Detail of the blade and the process of building it.

    If you ever need a copy of a discontinued blade, dont hesitate to contact Sergio!

    Unfortunately it doesn't fit my current Style with Short Pips and currently ives in my Shelf...

    This blade has been on the website for a while, which breaks my heart because I honestly think it's one of the best blades I have there. I think the holes on the handle were bothering some of you, so I decided to fill them. It takes away some of the natural beauty of the wood, but the handle is now perfectly smooth. Playing wise it's springy and reasonably fast, due to the crispy outer ply, but soft and stable with the help of the soft carbon. The very comfy handle is made with Burl Poplar and Bubinga, and now fitted with the SDC Golden tag.

    Very unique blade this one. Extremely stiff and fast, yet you get a feeling of "holding the ball" like no other blade I've ever built. The composition is also very light, more than half of the weight is on the handle, which means a balance of zero, which is also something I haven't done before.

    How does Purple Heart play compared to some better known hardwoods like Ebony, Rosewood and Wenge? Knowing your thoughts on that might help someone be willing to give it a go.

    I have a value which compares density with the janka hardness, it doesn't have any scientific meaning, but it gives some clues as to how a wood will play. Basically, if a wood is soft relative to it's own weight, it will feel bouncy, but if it's hard relative to it's own weight it will feel more linear. In the first example you have woods like Spruce, Hinoki, WRC, etc. In the extreme of the second category you have woods like purple heart and ebony, which are way harder than they are heavier (relatively speaking). The relation of those two is the same, but Ebony is just a little harder and heavier. It gets to a point where the differences are more aesthetic than in performance.

    I really like picking up left over scraps from previous builds and make something out of them. It turned out to be a very eighties looking blade! But it's not something I will replicate in the future, so this will be a one time piece. Composition wise this is a inner fiber blade, with 90 g/m2 Textreme-Carbon placed at 90º, and soft outer plies. I was going for something with a good pace and light, more oriented for close to the table driving, rather than looping.

    Available FS.
