Hey all, which of the 3 blades provide the 'best ball feedback'. Also are they within the same speed category?

I'm currently using the Acoustic but would like to move on to something else with better 'feel'.

Ty.

I have tried all 3 and your Acoustic already has the best ball feedback. The other 2 have a slightly stiffer feel since they are thicker. You should try an OSP Virtuoso it's probably what you are looking for.

Time to move on to Carbon blades.
Try Viscaria - in my opinion it has better (crisp) feeling then all wood blades... (With the new ball most of the players play carbon blades, I recommend you switch to carbon. It simply has better sweet spot and much larger then wood blades).
I played all 3 wood blades you mentioned and it felt as every shot I hat to give extra power just to stay in the rally, where as with Viscaria its great in short game and has power when needed!)

Ty for all the input.

I have tried composite blades in the past but the lack of feel (Viscaria included) compared to an all wood bothers me for some reason.

I'm not too concerned about the speed of the blade as I think the acoustic has the right amount of speed for me.

Anyone else have any other suggestions?

It depends about the size, but these three are quite similar. Maybe Acoustic is a bit faster, Korbel is stiffer and Infinity is slower.

I would stay away from any carbon blade if you're not fit or don't have the proper skills or age, I mean anyone below 2300+.

New gen sponges are lighting fast enough to pair with any mid 5 ply pblade.

Avoid any Butterfly stuff... at abusive prices. Raw power without control means nothing
