    It‘s interesting what you say about this being a 7ply blade with 5ply characteristics. There is also the other way around IMO, 5ply woods with 7ply features, especially when you select heavier speciments. The Korbel comes to mind and also the blade I‘m playing, the Darker 5P2A. It’s not the fastest blade but quite stiff and linear (not as bouncy as all-hinoki blades), which is probably because it has basswood intermediate plies and it’s thickness. It is 6,5 mm thick, so much thicker than normal 5plies and some of the modern all-wood 7ply blades.

    Thanks. I haven't tried the Dyjas UP yet so cannot comment.

    Thanks - means a lot coming from you.

    I must, sheepishly, admit that the thought never crossed my mind, but you might be right. I have never tried the 'regular' Force Pro (or CCA7)

    Yeah, TTgearlab makes the case that it is very similar to the Force Pro Black Edition. To me, the two feel different - not dramatically but still noticeably different (significantly more than simple blade-to-blade variations - I have six SFPBE blades)

    Pat, basing on your video the blade seems to be not slow like Force Pro Blue. Tried the CC7 and it felt as fast as FP Black.

    Is the Bernie Blade the one you mentioned in the short pimple blade advise thread?

    If yes, how is it better for pips than the FPBE?

    And thank you for sharing!

    Edit: Don't mind my question, didn't get full audio while watching it first. All clear now 😆

    I just ordered one of these, I really hope it is quite dissimilar to force pro black! I hope it is a little more versatile than Sanwei Fextra!

    i have been using fextra, but i find it a bit too powerful, i cant topspin with it unless i am perfectly placed and ready.
    i have ordered a szocs 1 to try but am still waiting its arrival

    im not sure yogi, i di try 1.9mm 05fx tonight and actually played ok with it, but it feels very hard on fextra

    fextra is just absolutely stunning for kieler pips on bh, by far the best blade i have tried, my pips play was very very good on weekend.

    i think it might be 1.9mm 05fx on fextra and accepting some limitations to it, but short game for me is so much better and serves with 1.9
    i just have too heavy a contact for max tenergy

    Mine has finally arrived.

    First try last night was too humid, can't judge.

    Tried again today, feels sharper than Fextra, bit harder maybe but not stiffer.
    My practice partner said I was getting a lot of topspin on fh, but arc was fairly low.
    Blocks felt nuts.
    Pimple hits were very flat.

    I was very consistent today, but might have just had a good day.

    It is a very very comfortable blade to hold, fairly big, very well shaped neck even with my dodgy high grip.

    I was using 1.9 05fx, my serves were excellent and touch shots seemed good.

    Think its faster than Force Pro Blue, lower arc.
    Maybe slower than Fextra, but if just has a different feel I think.

    I am probably going to brave it a tournament on weekend at a very good spinny non humid venue.

    Could be a keeper!!
