Here are 2 BTY Viscaria blades with exact same weight (86.5g) and exact same blade frequency (1485Hz). Only difference are the wood grain and pattern and blade B is a shade darker than blade A. Which one do you like better?

Yea, my head is obviously bigger than the pp ball.Tongue I learn this handle bouncing-handle-on-the-forehead trick from a 2670 player. You can hear the tone and feel the blade vibration. Try it.Wink

pgpg: What better scaleQuestion. Fish or weightQuestion 86.5g is about as good as I want it to be.

mhnh007: "Why settle for B when you can have A????" ...Because I only can play with one at a time. Which one would you settle for? I truly value your opinion. Just like my friends value my winning pick in the super bowl, then they'd always bet the opposite and lose. Evil Smile

Only one thing to do.  Buy them all.

Remember, the CORRECT number of blades to own is N + 1, where N = the number you own now.

(Except when the correct number is Z - 1, where Z = the number that would cause your wife to divorce you).

Baal : (Except when the correct number is Z - 1, where Z = the number that would cause your wife to divorce you)... There's the probability of that happening even with an N + 1.

If you did bounce the ball than you should buy the one that you liked the most. Personally I like blades with minimal vibration and not too stiff...Also it's important the handle. There are normally litlle differences in grip. I like more the bulky one because my palm sweet a lot plus that from big you could obtain small but not vice-versa...

You're asking a lot, without being able to feel the blade in my hand, it is a toss up.  For instance, I have 3 blades, nearly identical in weight, one has a slightly larger handle, enough that your hand can feel the difference.  It has become my favorite.

I choose B, just because.

Definitely not B! Look at colour distribution "white" vs yellowish. No, not B.

Based on my biased observation and considering that both have the same weight, I would say that A would feel a bit stiffer than B (judging by the look of the grains on the surface).   Just by my biased experience testing a lot of blades.

Based on your Skull-Handle-Test, you also confirmed that B has a bit more vibration, so I guess A is indeed stiffer.

So it's back to you, do you like stiffer and less vibration blade (A) or less stiff and a bit more vibrating blade (B).

For me, I would choose B (function-wise).   But cosmetic wise, A looks better.
