    Thank you and sorry im very dumb 😂🤪

    Ahma,

    You have NOT shown me anything about being dumb. English also also likely NOT your first language either, so there is zero shame.

    That’s about the only option right now, I used to play in the atrium at my office, that option is closed now. We are glad to have just any place. 65 sek is about $6.

    I own a Tibhar Akkad and i would recommend that anyone consider getting it try it out first if you have the chance. The response is somehat unusual to me in that it feels like there is a speed limiter at the top end. Maybe I'm just used to faster blades.

    Exactly...
    But I’m hoping most of this is due to the FX-S rubber. I’m thinking it needs a bouncier one.

    Perhaps another example of different players having different impacts is Der_Echte's utter inability to propely utilize the most popular BTY Diginics rubbers.

    Der_Echte simply SUCKS at using D05 or D09C... maybe one stroke (the counter topsin) works OK, but I just cannot make the right impact to make good use of those rubers.

    Yet, with FX-S on just about ANY of the OFF class blades I use, I am a big time boss of spin and speed when I use a full stroke with Akkad.

    I still agree about Akkad not having a OFF+ gear... but I do not believe Akkad was made to have that kind of OFF+ performance anyway... simply solid OFF class performance is enough...

    ... also to be fair, sergio of SDC blades KNEW my capabilities and preferences (and so did Nate) and Sergio STILL made my custom blade in middle OFF zone - that blade CANNOT be accused of having OFF+ gear. Point here is a well made OFF blade can still be a weapon.
