Topspin like TB ALC/Viscaria and Smash and flat hit like schlager!
I don't think such blade exists lol

I would lean towards:


Koto/ALC/ayous/Tamca5000/Hinoki

sort of a hybrid between Viscaria/TB ALC and Schlager Carbon!

Koto/Ayous/ALC/Ayous/ALC/Ayous/Koto.
Slightly enlarged/elongated blade head.


Basically, the hurricane 301.


A hardish wood which makes great direct attacks easy, followed by one of the softest woods used, and ALC for extra kick when necessary. Perfect.

Only thing is, if I could replace ayous with a wood with similar properties but lesser weight it would be great

Thick, stiff and HARD, in fact so damn hard the name literally translates to "Axe breaker"

Perfect for smacking some sense into deranged EJs

If you desire a little more speed and stiffness, use ZLC instead of ZLF that I choose to use.

Yeah, give me those soaring janka numbers over 7mm.  I'd play that!

Or more appropriately, Forrest Gump.

If you wanted Z  and carbon you are correct, I use the Hayabusa Z+, which only has the Z fiber, like a ZLF blade instead of a ZLC blade.  I think the ZLF has more of a wood feel, less stiff than the ZLC versions of these blades.  I might have also liked on of the inner fiber blades, but happened to buy this one first, and never tried the others, of course they aren't making the Hayabusa blades any longer.
