For sale is a Sauer & Troger Zeus blade, 87 grams.  

Used for two hours only, comes complete with the Tibhar box it was shipped in.

Now offering a free sheet of Bomb Talent in red OX when you purchase the Zeus blade (picture: https://imgur.com/a/MrYjcnw). 

The blade face is 160x158, thickness is 6.0mm.

Composition is: Kiso Hinoki - UD Carbon - Royal Paulownia - UD Carbon - Kiso Hinoki.

This blade was modelled after the Nittaku Shake Defence blade which is widely regarded as the best blade for OX pips. The Zeus has a reduced head size compared to the Shake Defence, which frankly is like playing with a frying pan! The Zeus is just the right size to play all types of defensive strategies, while remaining nimble enough to launch devastating attacks. 

The spin produced on the forehand is incredibly high due to the good dwell time offered by the kiso hinoki outer plies, yet the UD carbon provides a massive sweet spot which supports straight play with deadly punches and hits.

The backhand side is slightly slower than the forehand due to the positioning of the carbon layer. This blade maximises the disruption and spin reversal of all OX long pimple rubbers, I get 20-30% more wobble and reversal with this blade than any other blade I have tested with OX long pimples.

Price is £70 including shipping worldwide, payment by Paypal, fees extra if paying goods and services. 

Will consider trades with Nittaku Shake Defence if it has been reduced (head size made smaller).


Product description

It was our utmost goal to create a high-class racket for modern defensive players, no matter the costs in terms of development and material. The result is ZEUS. We proudly present this masterpiece. It is named after Zeus, the Greek father of the gods, which was only logical with what it represents.

Size

16 cm x 15,8 cm (Height x Width)

Veneers

5

Playing system

AR / AR+

Speed

  • Forehand: 67
  • Backhand: 61

Control

  • Forehand: 87
  • Backhand: 92

The racket fits perfect to OX long-pimple-rubbers. We highly recommend this racket for the allrounder playing close to the table as well as for the defender.

The ZEUS is made of the wood of the japanese royal paulownia and two additional veneers made from ideal UD carbon. The outside veneer manufactured from the japanese Kiso Hinoki make this combination perfect. We were discouraged from creating the ZEUS because of the very high, some might even say too high, manufacturing costs. But because of the excellent playing abilities of this wood, we just had to do it. Since the ZEUS is made of really scarce raw material, it is possible that we temporarily might not be able to satisfy the customer’s demand.

Reference: Because of the CBIF adherence the forehand is a bit faster than the backhand.

Mas Diablo is a great seller. I totally vouch for the guy having bought...something from him a year or so back. A blade? And he's bought from me. Good guy, good prices, good quality.
