For sale: the following ALC blades. 

Price includes shipping in the continental US. Payment by Paypal, gift option (otherwise buyer pays another 5% to cover my fees). No trade requests please - I have all the blades and rubbers I need for now. For trade feedback of the seller, please see the link in my signature at the end of this post.

Notes:
  1. Re: the blade weight pics below: add 1 gm to the weight seen in the photos to get correct weight
  2. Re: the blade speed numbers given below, see here and here for more on this topic in case you're unfamiliar with what these numbers mean. Please note that these readings don't take into account speed from blade flex.

Butterfly Freitas ALC FL: $135

Weight: 86 gm
Size: 157 x 150 mm
Thickness: 6.03 mm  Smile 
Speed: 1507 Hz
Composition: Limba - Arylate Carbon - Limba - Kiri - Limba - Arylate Carbon - Limba
Reviews: see here
Video review: see here
Price if bought from dealer: see here
Blade is in fantastic condition - 2 dents that don't affect play (see 3rd and 4th pics). Look at the quality of the outer limba wood. It is like a Viscaria but with much more spin and feel (same power as Viscaria).




Butterfly Garaydia ALC ST: $105

Weight: 86 gm
Size: 157 x 150 mm
Thickness: 6.8 mm
Speed: 1744 Hz
Composition: Hinoki - Arylate Carbon - Balsa - Arylate Carbon - Hinoki

Acquired from fatt via trade. Blade is in fantastic condition except for 2 dents (see pics) that should not affect play.


DHS Hurricane Long V blade: $150

Condition: brand new
Weight: 88g (SmileSmileSmile)
Thickness: 5.94mm
Blade speed: 1344 Hz
Composition: Limba - Ayous - Arylate Carbon - Ayous - Arylate Carbon - Ayous - Limba
Price when new at a DHS dealer: see here or here

Please note: this blade has been bought from a authorized DHS dealer and not from some unauthorized sellers like TTNPP or Prott. It is genuine.

Another note on the blade speed: This blade is very whippy (exhibits flex due to its length). The blades above were stiffer (and hence had higher speed ratings). I'd say that this blade is slightly slower than Viscaria at the table and more powerful than Viscaria from mid-distance.


SOLD BLADES:

Butterfly Garaydia ALC ST: $115 Sold

One important point Freitas mentioned in the video: stick to the same setup. He used MM ALC for 10 years with T05 and now he's sticking to Freitas ALC. I wish I could do that one day Wink
