i have not read any other posts from timBoll so can not make a proper judgement .
If your decision to spank him would only be based on the very comment you list and reply to, I could not agree.
It is not an insult just a personal opinion.................which is allowed here, right. ūüėĀ

Look. This is a thread where hipnotic shows the blades he makes by hand. And this thread that hipnotic made to show the blades he has made, which, are both craftsmanship and art, and you can only know how they play if you try them, he says: "No matter what others think, I always think Viscaria and boll alc are the best ping pong blades."

You can read it how you want and I am happy that Sergio is not offended by him basically saying he is not interested in the content of the thread but wanted to post a link to his website. But, to me, it sounds like a put down of what Sergio is showing in the thread.

Commissioned blade for short pips.

Composition: Ash / SC / Hinoki / Kiri / Ayous / ALC / Limba
Weight: 90.5g
Thickness: 5.8mm

It would be really interesting to find out how this blade with its more extreme difference in composition compares with the Koto / A-C / Ayous / Kiri / Ayous / A-C / Ash blade you made for me. (posted on this thread on 01-27-2021, very similar looking handle)

This blade was somewhat based on your's. While the ALC is softer than the A-C we used in your blade, the high density carbon had a prominent feeling. This might be good for the pips side, but I think it also affects negatively the inverted side if you are looking for a little more arc. He as since returned for another blade and the differences were even more extreme, and while that one was stiffer, it felt softer overall.

Innegra is lightweight synthetic fiber made from polyolefin polypropylene, basically a tough plastic. It won't do much as far as increasing the speed of a blade, on the contrary, when used in its plain form it provides energy dissipation and vibration dampening. So, I thought it would be great to make a defensive blade. In this one I paired with hard Padauk outer layers, so it's still a reasonably fast blade for a modern defender.

Available FS.

Composition: Padauk / Padauk / Innegra / Kiri / Innegra / Padauk / Padauk
Weight: 91.4g
Thickness: 6.0mm
Freq.: 1230Hz
Balance: 3.1cm (Med)

SDC Blades had 2 of hiz blades in testing with someone in California, so naturally, Hipnotic sent me a Space message through NASA and Carl's Spyphone 13 to let me know they were available.

I promptly emailed a shipping label to the tester, and the forces of gravity floted 2 blades my way.

Tonite, I broke out one of them, what looked like a composite OFF blade and had a hit. The hit shows this is a composite blade in the OFF class that can do the things a blade like this should do.

It felt a little better top end than the Spartan. I did not take any pics, but SDC should know exactly which blade this is and share a pic.

Made it some time ago. The Hinoki wasn't top quality, that's why it became a test blade. But I'm curious to know how Hinoki works for you.
