Good looking blade!

Do we know the construction dets at all? Woods? 
Playing characteristics? Weight?

I haven't seen anything . All I know is it has Arylate and Limba outer plies. Maybe something like a thicker Timo Boll Spark  or maybe it's 7+2

I thought Calderano was an all wood guy.   Isn't this just a money grab by Xiom?
I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

I bet we can see that red layer core in his blade... what means it still is the Gatien Absolum.

At least until last years World Cup he was using the Absolum. Just rewatched his match against Lin Yun-Ju (from Nov. 30th) on Youtube. In several close-ups you can clearly see the dark / red middle ply. Maybe he will use the Super ALC eventually or maybe its just a blade that bears his name...who knows

About 200usd, actually (MSRP in Europe is 189.90eur).

"SUPER ARYLATE maintains the allwood feeling but with zero vibration and stability for big sweetspot and consistency." Ermm

By the way, it's been declared as Off- blade.

It's arylate, not ALC. I have a 729 aramid blade (not with carbon) and has a similar feel to allwood blades. Friendship L-3 and I really like the blade
These ones probably have better QC and may play different

From the spinfactory.de youtube review, they put in the comments it is 'outer' layer type.

So my guess is wrongBig smile. I thought arylate would be classified as all round or all round minus.
I wonder how it is compared to Butterfly Keyshot.

No word yet. We have to wait for the 36.5 blade and Calderano blade to be released first.

I will definitely buy Xiom Calderano Blade (butterfly handle is too slim,this one has more controll and becouse less speed) and no yellow (zlf,) and white (alc) or colour what  will be very dirty ugly:)


Friendship L-3 say is Aramid CARBON (i do not know)

 The blade has a giant sweet spot. It's  weird to say this but the blade feels softer than expected but stiffer. My only real complaint is the weight my FL version is 93g. It could be the weight distribution but it feels really heavy in the hand with D05.

Does this really have carbon fiber woven into the Super arylate?  

I always thought this was super arylate without carbon fiber.
