Another one of my experiments. I had built a similar one that was thicker, that one was fast but also a bit head-heavy so I wanted to make something more controlled and spin oriented. The lower weight and balance point also make it much more comfortable to play.

Composition: Fineline / Glassfiber / Kiri / Glassfiber / Fineline
Weight: 87.6g
Thickness: 6.3mm
Freq.: 1184Hz
Balance: 2.7cm (Low)

Anyone like fish? Awesome fish-scale pattern on these Ako top plies.

Composition: Ako / I-C / Framiré / Kiri / Framiré / I-C / Ako
Weight: 79.6g and 79.8g
Thickness: ~5.65mm
Freq.: 1330 Hz
Balance: 2.5cm (low)

This one has the same structure and about the same thickness as the blade from two posts ago, however it uses a thicker outer ply and thinner core. This gives it less speed, more control, more feedback, and a higher top spin arc than the other one, making it perfect for an allround top spin style.

Composition: Fineline / Glassfiber / Kiri / Glassfiber / Fineline
Weight: 86.1g
Thickness: 6.2mm
Freq.: 1162Hz
Balance: 3.3cm (Med)

I've talked about Diolen fibre before, Diolen is a high tenacity polyester fibre and many manufactures use it as substitute for Arylate or Aramid (even tough they don't call it that) because it also provides a soft feeling. In the pictures we can see two different colors (red and black) but in this case I'm using a plain Diolen fabric, so no carbon is involved in the weave. This plain Diolen fabric is one of the softest I use, besides glass-fiber, so it provides some vibration damping along with a small increase in sweetspot and speed, although less than with ALC or I-C for example. However, it does retain more of a woody feeling and control, so it's a perfect blade for those that like the feel of an outer fiber blade, but without the speed increase that usually accompanies them.

Available in my FS thread.

Composition: Koto / Diolen / Ayous / Kiri / Ayous / Diolen / Koto
Weight: 84.6g
Thickness: 5.85mm
Freq.: 1270 Hz

So, the secret services contacted me saying Ma Long was out there shooting some rockets, and wanted to know what kind of weapon he was using. I told them it was a W968, so they asked if I could make it even more powerful! Well, I told them I could, but a weapon like this will be dangerous in the wrong hands, especially if it flies out and hits someone in the head 😄

Remember that wall I was building? This is it, something to evoke to my Civil Engineering background, a Viscaria type composition that has been my personal blade for some time.

In a previous post I explained how there are some things I can tweak during the building process to make a blade harder and faster, or softer and slower, but keeping the same exact composition. This is where the frequency reading comes in handy, Black Tag Viscarias are known for having a softer feel and a lower frequency peak of about 1380 Hz, and this was exactly what I was going for.

Composition: Koto / A-C / Ayous / Kiri / Ayous / A-C / Koto
Weight: 85.7g
Thickness: 5.7mm
Freq.: 1378 Hz
Balance: 2.6 cm (Low)
