Wasn't the Carbonado series their most innovative blades in like forever ?

I agree.  Stiga has beeen practically living on their Offensive Classic technology since forever.

They don't do hinoki, arylate, zylon, ........

Yogi_bear,

Between Nostalgic Allround and Azalea Offensive, how are they different in speed/spin/feel?  I used to play with Energy Wood and if you can get one that is heavy like 90+ g, it feels really good.  But I would like to have one lighter than that and still have the same feel and speed.

So I will be interested to hear your comment on the two comparison.  Both sounds very interesting.  Thanks for a great review as usual.

all around is like off- and it is faster than all around blades. azalea offensive is like a bouncy infinity with a higher throw. all around is stiff

Yogi_bear,

I'm using Alser Allround5. I'm looking for a blade which has little more flex and crisp. Can the Nostalgic Allround give me that? Additionally both blades have the structure in the other way around(NO has outer hardwood and AA5 has inner hardwood), what is the differences between them in term of feeling during soft touch and hard hit?

Thank you,

Clipper CR WRB and Rosewood 7 have same speed. 
Though ,the quality control of Clipper CR WRB is awful and it is very dificult to find 2 Clipper CR WRBs with the same speed!

RW7 is definitely faster. And wood is wood you know. It´s very hard to find 2 identical blade no matter which brand or blade we are talking about.
What is the point of playing safe shots when you can miss with style
