Is this on anyone's radar, or not so much?

Does anyone know the construction? If it's an all-round classic type I'll probably end up getting one eventually. Had a custom made Violin clone in this shape and really liked how it played.

For a 5 ply all wood blade it looks a bit overpriced at 120EUR, don't you think? It doesn't seem to have any "exotic" wood in it either. It's at least double the price it should be at.

I got into a really bad accident July of this year 

Made the transition to the Cybershape carbon

I’ve played with a lot of blades, and idk man, this shape feels too good 
I am a total Newb. Come at me!

Is the original cybershape considered an inner carbon equivalent?

Was about to pull the trigger on the carbon version, might wait for some reviews of the new wood version, although i suspect the former will be a touch too fast and the latter too slow?

Have razka PO on the FH, and i do genuinely hate blades like korbel now (been using acoustic inner carbon LG for yrs and no reason to chance outside something disruptive like a cybershape) - the linear nature and excessive feedback of such a blade is disconcerting once you adapt to a level of bounciness/easy power.

Very true about it being double the price it should be... Still, tempting to say the least.

Cybershape carbon is quite fast - even faster than Viscaria imo. Cybershape seems to be really good for hitting but unfortunately that's not my game

I'm interested in how that customizable cwt weight in the handle works

it doesn't look like there are threads, how does it stay in place on the bottom of the handle i wonder...? magnet?

By the looks of the product video on youtube there's a small magnet on it. Or that little nipple on the weight seems to be a magnet.

According to https://www.stigasports.com/product/cybershape-wood-cwt , there is a magnet inside the blade.  But has this magnet been tested to withstand Truls throwing the blade into the ground?  It could take someone's eye out LOL .

Don't forget another thing with those cyber shape  blades...Once you have put rubbers on it, those rubbers won't fit a "normal" shape blade anymore....
If those rubbers are new, it means you spent at least 100 EUR or USD for nothing.

Just my opinion because I see there are so many of those cyber shape blades quickly for sale on ebay and on different forums...which makes me think those blades have dissapointed so many people...or those people are not able to use them in the optimum way.

i guess rubbers could be reused after being used on a Cybershape but it just looks even more odd than rubber that shrunk
