==========================================

I wonder how many members play with NEXY blades. If you do, join the clan!

If you found a rubber combination that works particularly well on your Nexy blade, please share your secret Wink and preferably add a few lines about your playing style.

Official sources of information about Nexy blades are www.nexy.com, nexyttstore.com, www.tak9.com (in Korean), posts by user Nexy, in particular Nexy Designer's diary, a selection therefrom, and by user nexy.com.

There is also a Nexy blades info table by JimT with blade type and speed/control ratings: these are unofficial, that is provided by forum users and not directly from Nexy.

Note: I'm currently offering some of my Nexy blades for testing, see this thread.


Below is a summary of blades and their physical characteristics. Dimensions are in mm, masses in g. Data is taken from nexy.com and tak9.com. Blade compositions are taken from various sources, including this and other forums: please PM me for corrections. Mass range is derived from the stock in Dec. 2013.

(Note that these figures were not considering the blade with swing movement and rubber's spin generating action. In some blades, Nexy is adopting dual speed system, but machine is lacking the ability to check the actual data during the movement. It's just neutral data of a blade without rubbers attached, and fixed on a non-moving jig.)


Meaning of Each Rating

1. Speed at low impact (or Elasticity)
> Basic elasticity or speed of blade. Higher value means higher speed/elasticity.
> 90 is the middle value. Elasticity rating of most blades is in the 80~100 range. Over 100 means super high elasticity. Under 100 means noticeably diminished elasticity.
> You may consider 80~85 = ALL+, 85~90 = OFF-, 90~95 = OFF and 95~100 = OFF. However, please note this is not an exact science.

2. Speed at high impact (or Additional Elasticity)
> This means the response of blade when player makes a hard impact.
> If this rating is close to 0%, the response of blade is regarded as linear without much variation of elasticity. If this rating is 'plus' (= bigger than 0%), the bounce of ball becomes bigger than that expected from impact input. If this rating is 'minus' (= smaller than 0%), the bounce of ball becomes smaller than that expected from impact input.
> The blades with 'plus' rating are good for performing various techniques, and they are especially good for a hard smash due to its additional rebound. The blades with a 'minus' rating are good for continuous topspin or extremely aggressive close-to-the table topspin thanks to its holding-the-ball feeling.
> Additional rebound or good holding is noticeable when this value is over +10% or under -10%.


3. Hardness
> Basic feeling of blade. Higher value means a harder feeling, and lower value means a softer feeling.
> 90 is the middle value. 90 means that the blade isn't especially hard or soft. Hardness of most blades is in the range of 80~100.
> For example, about 80~ is the typical value of many 5-ply wood blade.


4. Wing Hardness (or Relative Hardness)
> Relative feeling at blade wing when compared to the basic feeling (= hardness).
> If this rating is close to 0%, the feeling of blade is even. Players may notice that the feeling at wing is similar to basic overall feeling. If this rating is 'plus' (= bigger than 0%), the feeling at blade wing is relatively harder (or stronger) than the basic feeling. If this rating is 'minus' (= smaller than 0%), the feeling at blade wing is relatively softer (or weaker) than the basic feeling.

* note that Arche is a combination blade: the two top plies behave quite differently when applying spin (tangential strokes). On flat hits and bounces on the bare wood (as measured by the machine), the measurements are very similar.

About myself:
- Nexy Lissom ST, 83g
- Nexy Lissom ST, 84g
- Nexy Calix ST, 84g

My main blade is Lissom. I've been playing with it for about 1 year, with Xiom Vega Pro on FH and Nittaku Hi Super Drive on BH. I play a controlled offensive game with greater value on spin and ball placement than on mere speed. As you may have guessed from the rubbers, my FH is more aggressive than my BH.

Curious to read what other rubbers stick on Lissom.

You can see my setup below, I'm mainly a forehand looper, I loop everything that I can with my fh and I use my bh mainly to counter or return of serve. Both the outlaw and the h3 neo seem to work quite well for me.

Nexy Calix, but not really settled on a rubber setup yet. Acuda S3 and Shark 2 RS both great on the backhand, but forehand rubber not quite settled yet.
This was a great signature until I realised it was overrated.

OK, then I'm quoting your post for future reference. I read good stories about Outlaw. And I'm looking for a new BH rubber anyway, since Nittaku has discontinued Hi Super Drive. I have a spare sheet of Sriver EL (but I'm not keen on bty, lately) and was thinking of maybe trying Donic Coppa, but maybe I should try Outlaw, instead.

I'm making a list as soon as we reach 10 members.

For 14 dollars you really can't go wrong with outlaw even if it's not to your taste. I used outlaw on the fh before switching to h3 neo but it makes a good bh rubber as well. I'm not sure if I'll keep with outlaw in the long run as I might want something I can loop better with on the bh, but I'm not very good at looping from that wing anyway so I'm not going to worry about it until I develop that part of my game more. In the meantime outlaw is great for the bh counters I mostly do and is perfectly good for passive and aggressive serve return.

I am an all around attacker. I take it whenever and wherever I can get it. Spartacus is an excellent blade for this kind of play.

I had been playing with Nexy Color for almost a year before I switched to faster blades. That is a great blade. I am surprised that nobody here is playing with one.

I did, before switching to Lissom. It's a very good blade and I enjoyed playing with it. Just, Lissom suits my style better. But if someone has a ST Color that they want to get rid of, PM me.

Yes, well. My first week with it was brilliant. Now it seems to be a little out of control. I switched it between blades and the tuning layer came off. Since then it's been very strange. I actually like Shark on the forehand as well, so maybe I'll use it on both wings when my orders arrive.

I was thinking something soft and predictable. Coppa X3, Vega Euro, Energy Xtra, Magna 2. Still deciding.
This was a great signature until I realised it was overrated.

BW 2 rs without the tuning layer is very easy to stretch when reglue, and this rubber behave strangely when stretched.  I had to reglue it a few time to find that if I am careful enough to not stretch it, then it play very well with tons of spin.  However, because it domes so much, so it's hard not to stretch it when reglue.
 
BTW - what is the different between Lissom, and Lissom Aegis?  I am intertesed in these 2 blades, but not sure which one is better for control.

The difference is size, and weight. Lissom is 150x156mm and average weight is 80-85g. Lissom Aegis is an oversized Lissom, about 10g heavier. Don't know the exact size, though.
Nexy described Aegis in his thread "Nexy designer's diary", as follows:
Lissom Aegis is good for traditional defender or modern defender.
It's very comfortable from away, and makes immense power shot away from the table, for chopping and aslo for loopiong.
But if has small vibration with OX close to the table, as ikarus or labyrinthos.
So, I think this blade is good for chopper, with pimple out rubbers together with sponge.
The structure of Lissom Aegis is the same with Lissom, but it has different handle.
Because I changed the sweet spot for bigger size.

I've been playing with red 2mm Vega Pro on the forehand and black 2mm Vega Europe on the backhand; of the Calix, this week.

Vega Europe would work on the forehand; if you prefer a softer rubber on that wing; but it does have a lower throw than Vega Pro.

Done!

vvk1,
can you briefly post your impressions on Calix+Tenzone? did you try other rubbers on Calix?
Just curious.

Calix + Tenzone is a looping machine.

It is a touch bouncy in the short game, so one needs to be careful when pushing, but looping - especially brush looping and counterlooping is nothing but amazing.

Calix (which I had switched to from Xiom V1) provides a lot of dwell time and very nice feedback.

So it is very easy to produce Timo Boll-like (well, at least I hope so :-)) slow/medium-speed loops loaded with spin.
