    The blade may not be heavier, but when you put two rubbers on 9% more surface area, that kind of has to be heavier, no?

    I wonder what happens when you flick, whether you top edge the ball?

    only the upper half that is 11% bigger, where you want to hit the ball. bottom is smaller. I think I saw they said 5% bigger in total. I guess the solved the weight with the construction (carbon/Wood). I feel excited about it.

    It's in stock @ 219 EUR

    No way I'm paying that much money for a blade.

    The weight itself isn't the issue - or, at least it's not the only issue. The balance is the main thing. The cybershape looks like it shifts the balance of weight (ie. the centre of gravity) further towards the very top of the head of the blade.

    Imagine the look on the face of your opponents when you turn up at the table with this blade with colored rubber. 😂

    Looks like Elon Musk invested in Stiga. I'm having cybertruck vibes looking at this blade and not cyberpunk 2077.
    But honestly I don't really look forward seeing a blade like this with pink or whatever colored rubbers.

    But 60€ for a single rubber is no problem?

    I see a combination of both worlds, the sharp edges and name from Cybertruck, and the neon colors and Blade runner feel from Cyberpunk 2077. Got to hand it to them, they have nailed the marketing and branding.

    Are you really saying this about the company that tried to make Head Heavy marketable with the WRB handle (super duper hollow handle) and the company where, ALL THEIR BLADES have hollow handles, even the ones that look like the handle is solid. HEAD HEAVY is part of Stiga's MO.

    And even if the head is only 5% heavier, a light blade (aprox: 85g) with 95-110 grams of rubber on the head, how could it not be head heavy? So, regardless of your math, Brs is on the right track here.

    Heady-heavy or not, still the company with the best blades in terms of feeling and performance.

    I do like the way a lot of Stiga blades feel. I just don't like how many Stiga blades I have broken. But, I am okay with head heavy. I am okay with middle balanced. I am okay with handle heavy. They will have different qualities. When I get used to a blade and how it performs, none of those things matter to me.

    But for sure, Stiga purposely makes their blades head have consistently. They are also the company that made all those Oversized blades where the head was pretty darn big. Like the Clipper Oversized and the Allround Oversized. Those blades felt amazing. But man were they head heavy.
