      A pretty common problem. Old blades are often already "worn in", also sometimes people say back in the day better veneers and other glues were used in the production process.

      In addition to that, Primorac Carbon is a pretty special blade and you won´t find much that plays like it anyway.

      My suggestion: Don´t bother trying. Get him something else.

      based on reviews,i was thinking about 3 Xiom blades with similar composition and many peoples reviews compare them with P/C.
      Xiom Strato
      Xiom Axelo
      Xiom Ignito
      do you have any opinion about them?

      You could try them, they are for sure similar in composition. But so - and even more - is the Primorac Carbon itself in its new form.

      And if the new Primorac Carbon doesn´t perform as the old one in your friend´s opinion, how big a chance is there something else will?

      If you don´t land a one in a million shot, the result will be disappointment.

      Let me add that Axelo is faster than Primorac Carbon. More like a Schlager carbon equivalent.
