Finally an image of new ice cream blade. It's a blurred one but probably a carbon blade with koto/limba outer ply.

These look like combination blades.  Different composite types on either side.
This was a great signature until I realised it was overrated.

It says "korea made" on the blade face, so that's the safest bet.  Same place as the Vega blades presumably.

I'm trying not to judge Ice Cream in advance, but the first concern I have is - how much difference will the two composite layers actually make?  The Terminator has different outer plies as well as ALC/ZLC (I've still got one in the cupboard here - it's a fun blade) and the difference is noticeable but not profound.  If you change the composite alone - will it really do anything worthwhile?  I love Xiom products but they're becoming masters of mysterious marketing.  I hope there's some meat as well as the potatoes in this case.

I like the idea of the AZXi more for the innerlayer construction.  I've often wondered what an inner position version of the Vega Pro would be like, and this might be something like that.

Sometimes I am also puzzled by the marketing wizardry of Xiom's, it misses the poetry that NEXY's words carry so I take Xiom's with less enthusiasm; I am curious as well though.

I tend to agree on what another member wrote once, something along those words: 
ultimately the feel of a blade is a mix of all its elements and different compositions on both sides will mesh into a blade that feels about the same on both sides, the outer ply being the biggest factor when feeling a difference between them.

Marketing gimmick? yes! does it work on me? oh yes!

YINHE JUPITER 3 TOUR EDITION - special edition for a Chinese company

You have to admire WRM of Japan (and others) for pushing the boundaries with these rubbers, but I wish they would give the rest of us Yinhe resellers a chance as the special editions they keep getting made are making the rest of us look like second tier resellers 😂

I suppose though, it keeps Yinhe R&D on their toes to keep producing new and better rubbers if WRM keep asking for them, so some good does come out of it for the rest of us 😎

I dont think 2 difrent fibers at each side of the blade can work maybe at low impact

20 | 71 What for?

Hi, People

The latest Nitttaku Catalogue 2018 provides us with a lot of useful information.
Each of the 42 rubber items is labeled with the same colored numbers 20 | 71.

http://www.nittaku.com/catalog/2018en/book/html5.html#page=1


{20} {71}
What's the true utility of the numbers?
I can't get any good idea, so far.
Could you clarify on the numbers ?

Thanks.
