Another Happy Customer from SDC Blades.
Hi, I am Ame from the Philippines.
A short pips FH user with inverted for BH
I'll only post one photo and let Hipnostics do the Postings.
87gms. It feels lighter in the hand even though I weighted it myself and the same reading appears.
I use the Smoked eucalyptus side for the FH and Blue Fig for the BH
Medium in feel
Off in speed
Dwell time is there
Flat driving loops need a slightly closed angle for it to land since there is dwell time.
Trajectory: Slight curve
Blocking: Blocks very short, the balsa really absorbs the speed of the incoming ball
Usually balsa blades are hard to loop with but I find this one good for looping too w/ sp
All+ in speed
So much dwell time, it really sinks in.
A bit on the softer side
May make medium rubbers feel like soft rubbers.
Spins made on the BH kicks making it hard to block
Punching the ball works very well
Receiving needs more of a push since the BH Side is slightly slower
Chopping is very easy creating nasty backspin balls
Handle is inspired by our Philippine Flag
Made of Wenge and Maple wood.
Wenge strips of Blue and red.
Original plan was making both halves red and blue but not possible.
Since the paint would make it to slippery to hold.
But everything went well aesthetically.
Will definitely order again.
SDC Blades is very CS oriented and answered all of my Queries regarding this project.
I cant wait to work with him on another one soon.
PS. I hope I did the blade justice in this review
