Of course, The structure of SANWEI EX-C Paramid is Ayous surface -spruce- Arylate carbon - Ayous core.

I was looking at sdc material website.https://www.sdcttblades.com/materials/veneers

If Paramid uses ayous and spruce, both are softer than Limba/ayous combo commonly found in inner fibre blades. Does that mean that Paramid will be much softer and slower than other common blades like hl5 or bty inner alc?

If you ignore thickness and whatever processing that might be done to alter the properties of the wood, then yes. Although "much softer and slower" is quite subjective.

Paramid is one of the faster blades I've tried. Not like Yinhe T11+, but a little bit faster than my Yinhe V14 PRO, Sanwei V5 PRO and DHS Power G9, but it got a quite soft touch and a really hollow sound :)

Ive heard that its quite fast. But how is this possible since it uses ayous and spruce? Limba is harder than both

If the core is very thick, with thin veneers, then the composite layer can be closer to the surface, so the stiffness (correlate to speed?) is higher and the blade should become more like outer-fibre blades. Like Hurricane Long 5X v.s. HL5.

Is that actually the case with the Sanwei Paramid/F3 Pro?

Also, what is the advantage and tradeoff of going this route vs using Limba with more established thickness?

The core looks pretty normal to me. But I don't know.

Absolutely no idea. Besides, there are more variables: composition, thickness of each layer, shape of handle, shape of blade, glue between layers, additional coating on the surface etc.

My own overly simplistic view is that top ply dictates performance of soft touches, the core/deeper layers becomes more influential when you hit harder. When you engage the composite layer, the blade would "become faster" like with the turbo on.

Having a thicker core would move the composite layers closer to surface, so "turbo" is activated earlier. Softer wood are then used as top plies to retain control for soft touches.

To get even further we would need standardized tests e.g. TTGearLab's work.
