I just received a Stiga VPS V. The handle surface is rough just like the old Clipper. Holding the handle gives the same feeling. The surface is very smooth just like the surface of Acoustic.  I was expecting a light blade with 150x155 cm. Well mine has 91.8g and 157x150 just like bty blades. Is it my blade an exception or Stiga changed the VPS V from compact size of 155x150 to 157x150?

I don't know if they've changed, but I also experienced this -- bought one used from a forum member from Asia. It showed up, as listed - 155x150mm. Played really nice, so I bought another from TT11.com for back-up. I requested a weight of >89g and recieved what I had asked for. This blade however is 159x150!! -- an Infinity VPS "Oversize", if you will!

I tested them against one another for playability and this is my conclusion:
The regular Infinity has a higher avg. speed, but the "Oversize" Inifinity goes deep into the gears, has more apparent flex, more control (for me), yet can still produce great speed on full swings shots. Needless to say, it is this "Oversize" Infinity that I stuck with.

Will I ever be able to find another?? I don't know. Will TT11.com measure blade faces for you? . Glad to know someone else got a slightly larger Infinity besides me.

wow so I have been playing with an old stiga infinity 149 x 155 that someone gave me and I love it.

ready for the new season I bought myself a beautiful new infinity.
157 x 150 and I don't like it, it does not play even similarly.

so after spending hundreds of pounds the best blade for me is a beat up old infinity with bits of top ply missing.

yes pilgrim it is, the hollow handle takes some of the feel away from the infinity

yes its still pretty good I think, although Tibhar stratus Powerwood is excellent if you can control the speed, its fantastic with hurricane

somehow the newer feels hollower than the old one. I could adjust to it to be fair if I had too. However now I have gone to lp on bh with a hitting style so infinity is no good for this. It is a shame as I was really liking 05fx 1.9 on my fh of infinity, a touch more control than 2.1. So I am now using a TSP balsa 6.5 which I can not get a decent fh rubber for, but is stunning for bh lp.

I would reevaluate and say infinity is an excellent blade for players who like 5 ply wood and want something a bit slower than a TSPW. If I ever go back to not using lp it will be an infinity or eternity that I use

I actually bought another Infinity last week and it feels very different then one I had before. No hollow dead feeling. It has very nice sound and excellent feel. I very like it. Feels like totally different blade compare with one I had before.

Is there a difference in weight betweenyour two blades?

That might tempt me to try another. I am currently using Sammy force pro blue, which I like as its a bit stiffer. But I loved the infinity apart from the hollow feel.
