    Posted: 02/07/2013 at 3:29pm
Hi Everyone,

I have just bought this wonderful used blade as a bargain, just out of curiousity and following an advanced player's advice to have a try. As far as I know , it got out of prduction few years ago. It cannot be purchased as a new one anymore.
I put M1 amd M3 on it and I must tell you everything works well. 


It is mainly the huge control that I am mostly surprised at. Anyway, it is obviously not a speed deamon but decent spin, flips and chops can be performed.
So little information can be gathered on web so I am really curious to become more acquainted with it, have some more info about it. So please help me and share your knowledge or thoughts about the blade.
Which modern up-to-date blade has much in common with Legend by Joola blade? I mean , which blade has nearly the same playing characteristic , 5 ply all wood construction and so on. Which modern blade can be used as its substitute.

looks like a fat Korbel. Limba on the outside for sure.

I would want to know similar blades as well, if only for the fact that no matter how great it is, I could never bring myself to play with such a hideous bladeDeadDeadDead   I'm glad you like it though!


EDIT: Better you than me.

EDIT: Way to take one for the team!

Yes, it does seem the same first and second ply. Limba-limba-ayous like the old Stigas. No wonder its a good blade, it must be thin to be all+

 It may be an ugly dog but who cares, all that matters is how it feels and how well it works for your game. Some ALL+ blades almost play like OFF-, rubber selection is a big factor.

its not that ugly, it just looks old. Its kinda cool actually. If Joola just put this on the market, then yes, ugly. But knowing it's old, no, it's cool.

Yeah, that's excatly that I was informed about. The feeling is quite close to the antique Johanson blade. Anyway , are there any 'old and ugly' Big smile Stiga or Joola funs around here who can confirm that brave statement ?
At the same time , I am really intrested to know which "up-to-date blade" of any brand might have the same construction or feel.
