    Posted: 09/25/2018 at 6:08am
Hi there,

After years of using the Andro Super Core CL OFF+ (old version) i'm looking for a new one since mine is broken. Unfortunally they are not manufactured anymore. I once used some balsa blades from TSP, 8.5 I think, but that wasn't my cup of tea. It was also very thick.

I really love light carbon with balsa blades. Do you guys or girls know any balsa/carbon blades below the 70 grams? 

Let me know!

the off version should be very similar.
I think they just changed the outer ply to limba.

Hi Pingpungpeng,

Unfortunally, the whole serie Off+, Off, (Off-?) and All+ isn't manufactured anymore.

The one on Scholer Micke is the newer version. I bought one but it's a different game. The handle is thin as a needle. Thanks

The Cornilleau Aero Soft Carbon Off+ is a great blade at 70 grams but is not made of balsa.
I played with it when I had tendinitis

TSP also make the Trinity carbon, which you might be able to find below 70g (although you might have to ask the shop if they have any below 70g). I use one that's only 65g. It's not off+ though, it's more like off.

I forgot to say that I spotted that this is the same blade as the OP and can be purchased as current stock from Tees Sport in the UK. Maybe it is still made or they have left over stock?

Yinhe T-11 used to be 3+2 with Super thin outer wood plies 
Wood-Carbon-Wood-Carbon-Wood
but you Yinhe now only sells T-11+ which is an updated version of the blade for Polyball I guess and it's 5+2
Wood-Wood-Carbon-Wood-Carbon-Wood-Wood
Those extra 2 layers of wood will no doubt add 2-3 grams doesn't matter how thin they are.

If you can still find classic T-11 then that'd be great.

I like the idea of T11+ being 7 ply. I guess this way it will have a bit more flex which was completely absent from the one I had loong time ago(supposedly 3ply)

+1 for XVT Hinoki Balsa Carbon ... Mine weighs around the same ... Excellent blade for blocking, as well as attacking... and it priced @ around $20 ... One caveat though - I feel it's meant to be used with Long Pips, on one side ... I didn't like it with inverted on both sides
