    Posted: 05/07/2012 at 8:18pm

I think my power7 after 25 years is about done.  Looked online and the only power7 I found were in another country for 4x what I paid for mine back in the days.

Tried a graphite composite blade by Palio and Butterfly and they are not for me.  Feel like your hitting with a piece of metal, the feed back is so small.  So I think I need a wood blade.
 
Any recommendations for good 7 ply wood blade with a compact head that people are using these days.

Joola Viva might fit the bill, I'd suggest getting a flared handle though, the straight was much too small for me. 

I personally like the Stiga Clipper, but it doesn't have a compact head and is head heavier than the Viva.

stiga clipper wood, inexpensive and solid blade, i hear many good things about PG7 but i havent tried it though, i honestly dont know what dimension is compact head is but if compact it means as small as tibhar samsonov alpha then clipper is not compact

 Two very good ones:
 
  1. Stiga Clipper Wood, the regular version
 
  2. Avalox BT 777, perhaps not as famous as the Clipper but very nice quality. Head size is slightly bigger than compact but you won't notice it unless you use max on both sides. These usually are around 87 gr.-92 gr. Outstanding ST grip.

I saw it on ebay for like $85 + $25 shipping to the US. Dead
 
So back in the days of 38mm balls, 21 point games, when men just discovered fire, I got the blade in $20-$30 range.

 Paddlepalace also sells the Avalox BT Series. If you want a softer 7-ply then Avalox P700 is also very nice but you will have to seal it as it does not come factory sealed. Very nice blades indeed.

Looking for something at around 86 grams.  Do the Avalox have a weight chart for their blades?

a 16yo buddy with a lot of talent, around 1800 now after 2 years, has been playing with Nittaku Rorin (hurricane commercial on it now) and I am afraid he would be bored with the Yasaka extra 7-ply (it was my 3rd pick after I saw those 2 out of stock I mentioned above).
Any idea? he has a super good rpb with my sh blades so he must go for it.
Note that he will not loose the traditional jpen bh hit because he loves it I think--> people clap when he does it with success lol.

I have just ordered a Joola Viva from its Hungarian distributor at a bargain price (~25 dollars - 4.900HUF) because  read cool reviews about it.

Weight chart from manufacturer will have tolerance that sometimes can exceed 10 grams. If you want to select the weight, you have to contact the seller and ask them what is the available weight alternatives. I always do this with iruiru.

Is iruiru a person on the forum?

www.iruiru.com, it's a store. Shipping is a bit high but quality of service is top class.

You should ask information about it at your national distributor. Good luck.

I use to hate hard, stiff, and heavy blade, until I play with Stiga Rosewood 7, which is hard, stiff, and heavy, but it plays so well, I changed my mind.  Give it a try, you maybe hooked for life Smile.

Sometimes I get hand cramps from using heavy blades during training.  So for competition I like lighter setups.  Maybe I'll get it for another training blade.
