could you please compare the zx2 with the zx3, i have an innerforce layer alc and want to buy the zx2, i think the zx3 would be too hard, fast and uncontolable for me ( i don't like the hl5 speedwise),... thanks

I was using xiom zetro quad and loved it. This time I tried HX pro with same FH rubber Acuda S1 turbo. I don't see much difference between the two blades and zetro quad might be little faster.  

The problem is:  Using the two blades you can let the ball go out the same way but the feeling on the hand is very different. Not saying one is better or worse, just different.  So decided not to switch to HX pro as I don't see much difference.

Innerforce feels different from zx2 and zx3 because of the hinoki top

SX is good but heavy. ZX3 is like a cross between ZJK ZLC and probably Mizutani. it has some qualities of both blades.

Turns out my feel ax's handle is hollow. Carbon layer looks interesting too.

Hmm, that's interesting. I always thought that the actual handle caps were hollowed out and not the plies that are sandwiched between the handle caps...Shocked
May I ask how you removed the handle caps? Boiling water/microwave and knives?

Cry That's too bad. Must have been a little shock at first.
But it shouldn't be too difficult to put the handle cap back on...

Yeah... I was really tired. Too tired to be shocked. Initially I used waterbased glue
just to be over with the tournament that I was playing.
And than I used a special wood glue than clamp it for several hours. I think I did a good job. It should be fine.

Oh god!
My dear feel ax is broken. I guess it was broken for weeks I'm not sure. I was just checking and I saw the crack. Ouch

Same day I ordered the lightest feel ax st handle from tabletennis11 and payed 20 euros for dhl express.
Than I got a 87 gr blade which is a lot more than my previous 80gr one. Cry

Now I have to get used to it in one day because tomorrow I'm going to play for a 2. division team in my country.  Thanks tabletenni11! my injured shoulder says hi!

Thanks for the reviews.  It looks like the HX PRO has the same exact design as my Strato (3+2, Hinoki surface, 7mm thick) except for the new rounder handle comparing to Strato's flat, wide & square FL handle.  My Strato also measured to be 7.1mm thick.  Because of that, the speed should've been OFF++(Xiom's old rating was a notch higher than average as it was for Strato) than OFF printed on the blade.  It has the same specs as my Primorac Carbon except the Strato has thicker hinoki top layers.  Many manufacturers copy Butterfly blades and sell them cheaper.

The HX is the replacement for the Ignito (the thinner version of Strato) but slightly thicker 6.6mm vs 6.5mm (based on T11).  Axelo is the big brother with 7.5mm; the thickest & fastest which was the copy of Butterfly's Schlager Carbon.

I won't be surprised to see both the Strato & Ignito be discontinued soon as the HX Pro & HX are basically the same blades being re-introduced for marketing purposes.
