To the 8 people who voted 40 degrees - how much tuner do you use?!?

40 tuned is still super demanding.

Furthermore, you can get 40 degree from most websites (stock commercial is 39-40) but 38 degrees is much harder to get in US, and still plays amazing tuned.

If you've never tried 38 tuned, you need to give it a shot.

I use 40 also (no tuning), but need the right blade to get more dwell... perfectly paired with Clipper CR =), i assume it works well with Ludeack Power,  & Rosewood 7.  Not as good with harder & thin blades such as OSP Musko.

There is a big difference between 2,15 mm and 2,2 mm...I really could not understand even if I really try how somwbody didn't feel the differences on the same blade and from the same supplier...

Sorry to revive a dead thread but I didn't think my question warranted a new topic.

I'm currently trying out the Stiga Clipper Wood (and have moved to the new 40+ ball).  I am wondering if 38 or 39 degrees provincial would be more suitable on the blade (or if there's even a difference)?

I do not tune/use booster.

38 degrees would probably be better if non-boosted, that said why are you playing the H3 Neo unboosted?!

Because it is illegal to boost? It is an idiotic and unenforceable rule, but a rule nonetheless.

Thanks for the feedback SmackDAT. I just didn't boost after the glue ban and didn't want to become reliant on it.

I think either 38 or 39 degree is fine.

I’m wondering this also! It seems like the newer sheets no longer specify hardness to the degree but only by “mid” which is said to be between 38-40 deg. 

I specified through TT11.com but all I was sent were these “mid” versions. 

Maybe it’s DHS way of easing up the QC? Probably due to poor sales on 38 or 40 deg?

TTNPP sell versions with a specific hardness in degrees, which they say were intended for the Chinese market, or without.

They charge about $1 extra for the labelled version
