As some people mentioned, the Iolite might be the thicker version of Viscaria that you're looking for. There is one for sale in the classifieds:

Garaydia ALC is thicker and imo faster too because of the hinoki top ply.

Opponents saying humblebear's shots are "violent" are just giving him a backhanded compliment. They mean "you miss all the time but at least you do it aggressively going for an attack."

It's like everyone telling me "your fh is very strong" what they are really saying is "your bh sucks."

Humblebear appears to have chosen equipment to strengthen his strength in wildly aggressive low percentage shots, rather than to try to improve on his weaknesses. That is a perfectly legit strategic choice that players make all the time. Like HB says, he is in it for the fun.

I wish we could see a video of a rally or something so we can see these violent strokes. I think he's at least USATT Rating 2000. I can feel it.

Are you close to LA?  If so maybe we can play some table tennis and you can decide whether my shots are violent or gentle.Wink

Ps.  I never said my shots are violent, I am just quoting what others describe about how I play. Tongue  I don't have videos of me playing; even if I ever do, I wouldn't feel comfortable sharing over the internet.

Dear Forum Enthusiasts, I just bought a Freitas ALC and I think that's my ideal "Super Viscaria".  It's has about the same speed but is more spinny, more dwell, has better control and feel.  I realized that I don't need more speed but would welcome more spin, control & feel and I think I found it.

I think the Viscaria is actually a 'Super Freitas'.

My custom blades really has a faster speed with 6.1-6.2 mm thickness. Several player like the fell but complained the speed. Others wanna more speed.
