    Posted: 09/16/2020 at 10:55pm
I have two Clipper Wood and one Clipper CR.    I never think of measuring the thickness of them since I know that they are around 6.9-7.0 mm.

However, last week I met with a store owner who stated that Clipper CR is a bit thinner than Clipper Wood.

Now, I can't really tell visually when I compare them, and I also don't have caliper.

Can anybody confirm that Clipper CR is a bit thinner than Clipper Wood?

Thank you.

That’s not correct. I have 2 clippers CR and both are around 7 mm. thickness.

Over the years, the thicknesses of the Clipper and CR have changed. 

So I don't really understand your question.

Why would you care if other people's clippers are different from each other?

Are you not interested in the ones that you own?

And what I meant to elaborate to you was even without calliper you can put 2 blades one again another and see if they any difference. Yes, tt11 give some info that they got kind of thinner wich I doubt it. Can I have that opinion for myself too? Tnx.

I agree with you. I don't understand why the original poster is curious about other clippers when he doesn't know his own blades?

Several generations of Clipper that I bought (non wrb and wrb) between the 1990's until maybe 2005 vintages usually ran between 6.8 to 7.0mm...

There's a great archived thread here:

To clear some misunderstandings, I have already told you that I have compared them visually but I can't see any differences in thickness (please read my original post).  The only way to do it is to measure using caliper but I have also written in my original post that I don't have caliper.

Now, with differences only 0.1-0.2 mm, which is kind of hard to see visually, and also thinking of variation of production within 0.1-0.2 mm, my two blades can't be the basis of real fact (meaning that since mine are similar in thickness visually, thus I can firmly conclude that Clipper vs Clipper CR are the same in thickness).   But I can conclude the result if I have more samples (blades) to check.

That's why I asked you all here. 

EDIT:  In other words, the claim from the owner of Stiga official store who said that Clipper CR is a bit thinner, can't be verified by my own comparison visually.   Considering the variation in production, I ask if anybody here know for sure.  That's all.

Should be the same thickness. Variations of 6-7g or +/-0.2mm is not out of the ordinary.

I have tried H3, Xiom Vega Pro, AK-47 blue, EL-P, Mark V and they are compatible with Clipper Wood.

However, most of my friends use H3 on Clipper Wood and Clipper CR.  And they are doing fine.

Currently, I am using Samsonov Force Pro Black Edition, which suits me very well, with Vega Pro on FH and Mark V on BH.

Do your friends boost their H3? I’m too lazy to boost rubbers regularly. 

Also wow there’s a rubber called AK-47???? I’ve been outta the TT loop for a few years

One of my friend boost his H3, but the rest use it as it is.  I did not boost either. 

I came across AK-47 while trying to replace my Mark V, and it performs quite well for cheap rubber.
