So, looks like is not only in Ebenholz blades that Stiga "solid" handle is not that solid..

Yeah,

I used to have a clipper that was marked as regular and I popped the handle off it to use it as a template and BOOM! Serious routing. I imagine this is how Stiga keeps the Clipper in a reasonable weight range as it's very thick and made of mostly ayous (while being light, is still a soft hardwood, thus reasonably weighty).

Oh well,
Screw you Stiga for your false advertisement.

o...o..
I sense that owners of Clippers are itching to unload theirs. For some reasons mine doesn't feel head-heavy at all. The combo weighs around 173g and it's a joy to play with.
What about those older models which I believe I had 1 once and now Robjkc is the happy owner. That 1 by itself weighs in like 98g.

It's funny... people have to cut open their blades to realize that their handles are hollow.

That seems to be evidence for a hypothesis Heimdallalso and I have. Namely, that although many people claim to despise hollow handled blades, it seems that most people can't even actually tell the difference through feel alone. Ermm

Just to clear up things.. this blade is not mine. My coach asked me if I can fix this and I'm sharing this picture. Actually, from Clipper series, I like better CR/WRB. I don't have problems with Donic V1 blades too.

Anyway, I know that a lot of brands use this to balance their blades or lose some weight without warning us.

Thanks for the interesting info. At first glance, I thought they were 2 blades. :)

I believe the same thing, most people like blades with hollow handle till the moment that they learn that the handle is not solid...

Agree with both of you. This Clipper "no-WRB" with hollow handle proves your point.

I remember Qiu Yike using Clipper WRB/CR even with Hurricane and Li Ching using Stiga V1 WRB also with Hurricane, known as heavy rubber. They play just fine with them.

See this one, Ma Lin Extra Offensive (pics from yaosir.com)
