Just picked this blade up LOL

... vs Clipper variants, Korbel SK7, Fortius FT, HL3/PG7/506, Force Pro Black Edition

If anyone can compare the TSP Swat Power with the blades above of similar composition, that would be appreciated? Is the only difference the thickness of the plies?

Does the smoked limba differ from the normal limba in any way?

How good is the quality/finish of TSP compared to the rest?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Rocketman!

If I'm not wrong. The TSP Swat Power is a 7-ply wooden blade, sharing some similarities with a Clipper.
It is a more powerful version compared to the normal TSP Swat.

The Carbon composite one is the TSP Swat Carbon.

But I do notice some websites and stores listing the TSP Swat Power as a 5 + 2 composite blade.
I believe it is a typo/ mistake.

One of my favorite blades is the now-discontinued Andro Temper Tech OFF+ blade which has a tempered ('smoked') limba as an outer ply. Limba vs tempered limba is like night and day. The heating process renders the limba ply much harder and faster but, interestingly, still preserves the limba touch in short play. Frankly, I cannot fathom why more TT manufacturers aren't using this as an outer ply. 
Set-up: depends on the day of the week

I guess the TSP Swat Power could be an alternative?

What about the Donic Burn series? Is that similar in any way or different outer ply wood?

The TSP Swat Power sounds interesting, although the balsa for kiri substitution is likely to create a difference. The Joola Flame Extreme might be a closer analog. I think the Donic Burn is closer to the andro Temper Tech OFF-.
