    Nittaku acoustic blade - any good?

    I'm thinking of purchasing this blade. I've seen a few reviews and it looks positive.

    Anybody else using or tried it?

    I also wanted to know if it has more control than Viscaria and Ma Long 3 blades.

    Thanks

    Yes, it does. Possibly among the top most controllable blades with plenty of speed. I recently jumped on the Black Friday deal TT11 had and bought one (larger handle). I've used a number of blades in the past including ZJK ALC, HL5, Treiber Z, etc. and I have to say I'm extremely satisifed with Acoustic. The craftsmanship is also superb.

    One thing to note is that some people claim the original handle is a bit too thin. I suppose that may be true because my hand is relatively small (Asian hand) and I find large handle version to be perfect.

    I've just changed my setup
    I used to play with Korbel / FH T80 1.9mm / BH Spinart 2.1mm
    kept the same rubbers and i have the Acoustic Carbon Inner
    so maybe not the same than yours

    FH its really fantastic, same feeling and touch than Korbel but so much more power
    BH im struggling a bit, a bit less control with my blocking game, and for opening loop, flick , the feeling is different, i had a tight grip and used the wrist a lot, i feel like one needs to be much more relaxed when using this blade cause its too fast else. So i'm adjusting a bit my BH technique. BH drive has also much more power.

    Regarding the small handle, the flared version seemed a little thin for me, but the straight version was perfect. I didn't want the large handle version because I didn't want my paddle to be too heavy.

    The Acoustic is a great blade (I own the all-wood and the carbon outer), and yes much more control than the Viscaria and Ma Long H3.

    Yup that is one of the best 5 ply blades in the market. A bit expensive but worth it

    Is there a lot of difference between the two Acoustic versions?

    The outer carbon is faster, the all-wood has more feel and control, the inner is in the middle.

    I bought a Acuostic Carbon Inner a few months ago. A really good blade.
    Good feel and decent enough speed. Played with a Viscaria earlier, but the decreased speed and increased feel of the acoustic inner suits me just right.

    The Acoustic Carbon outer even has more feel than the Viscaria, but less than the inner Acoustic.

    Outer. I’d prefer the inner. :-)

    Outer for sure. Just like the outer ALC's and ZLC's are faster than their inner counterparts.

    Great to hear that there's another new Acoustic user on the forum!
    Despite that I have switched to carbon blades for a long while, it remains one of my favorite blades of all time. I used to pair Acoustic with S2 on FH and M2 on BH, which makes a nice setup for looping.
    Acoustic is a versatile all-wood blade with far more control and spin potential than Viscaria and Ma Long 3. Since Acousitc is slightly head-heavy, for those who prefer to use well-balanced blades, be mindful of the weight of rubber.

    It is true that the plastic ball has resulted in several changes to the way the game is played. Unless you play at the top level of the sport - international level, national level - the Acoustic will be great for you even with the plastic ball. Major changes in the way the game is played are less and less noticeable as we go down the ladder.
