      Tibhar Fortino blade series with Dyneema fibre

      There are three new blades by Tibhar, each one interesting on its own, bound together by use of the Dyneema fibre. Dyneema is a very strong but also light material that enables to build carbon/fibre blades without making them too heavy from the start.

      Fortino Performance offers maximum control with good speed. It is a 7+2 construction (yes, 9ply) with balsa core. Over and at the able very good feeling, lacks a bit of power from mid-distance but most amateur players don´t engage in many topspin/topspin rallies anyway

      Fortino Forte is a very fast offensive blade that feels much more direct than the Performance version. The emphasis here is on power, and I see it for a speed-oriented game.

      Fortino Pro is a made in Germany blade with Limba outer veneer. It offers very good touch, but at a price tag of around 200 Euro it will face stiff competition by anything similar from Butterfly. At that price, not one that you try out casually, but actually rewarding. Personally, I find it has slightly better touch than a Boll ALC of the same weight and is just not as fast by a margin. Can´t compare to any Innerforce etc. though.

      Not aiming to derail the thread, but it seems all the brands are going there now. Hopefully sales won't catch up, it's bad enough with rubbers.

      Anyhow thanks for the reviews, Airoc.

      Performance and Forte are priced at a more sensible 90 Euro each.
