      Alternatives to Nittaku Acoustic Carbon

      Hi folks,
      I usually play with a Stiga Infinity but want to change my blade. My coach let me tried his Nittaku Acoustic Carbon with the rubbers I usually use (Yasaka Rakza 7 and Donic Bluefire M2), and I really noticed a big difference compared to the Infinity: Way more speed and way more control, smashes get all in and the general feel of the blade is amazing. So well, my question is, are there any slightly cheaper alternatives to the Acosutic Carbon, with similar speed/control and general feeling? What's about the Nittaku Septear Feel or the Joola Nobilis? These are completely different animals and the Nobilis is also an expensive blade, but...
      Any alternative around? Any thoughts? Thank you.

      Hi there, the Acoustic Carbon is Limba, Carbon, Limba, Tung but made very thin.

      Check out:

      http://stervinou.net/ttbdb/compo.php

      For similar constructions.

      No exactly match. But the tung core should be between balsa and kiri. So search anything along the lines of:

      limba, composite, limba, kiri
      limba, composite, limba, balsa
      limba, composite, ayous, kiri/balsa

      At relatively thin measures.

      I switched from the Infinity to Nobilis and am very happy. Much better touch play with the Nobilis, but also faster when hitting. Basically an all around better blade. The handle is also very comfortable.
