The outer layer (Framiré) feels a little bit harder than Limba (both woods are from the same "family"). I think, it is somewhere between Limba and Koto, but nearer to Limba.

Compared with Boll ALC it feels a little bit softer because of the outer veneer and it is also slower (Off- instead of Off from the Boll ALC).

Compared with the Innerforce (Layer) ALC the "Power Spin" (my name for this blade) feels more direct and (which is VERY important for me) is is much more linear than the Innerforce ALC (not as "bouncy" as the IF).

I think, the Butterfly blade, which is closest to this blade (from the feeling) could be the Maze ALC, but it is long time ago that I tested the Maze. But in my eyes the Power Spin has better control, also compared to the Maze, without being slow.

I had really good results with several medium-hard to hard rubbers. 
My actual choice is: Nexy Karis M+ on forehand and Karis M on backhand, both in 2,0 mm.


Thanks for the info. As how you describe it, it could well fit my gameplay as well.
Never played with Karis rubbers. Might give them a try.

This one of two blades commissioned by a forum member. I haven't made a penhold blade in a while so it was nice to build this one, especially with such a unique design . 

Composition: Koto / Ako / Aramid-Carbon / Ayous / Aramid-Carbon / Ako / Koto
Weight: 93.3g
Thickness: ~5.5mm
Freq.: 1270 Hz

This was the second blade commissioned, a variation on my Innegra outer composition with Ash as the top ply. The pattern on the handle is actually a painting made by his father, so it's a really nice hommage.

Composition: Ash / Innegra-Carbon / Limba / Kiri / Limba / Innegra-Carbon / Ash
Weight: 83.6g
Thickness: ~5.75mm
Freq.: 1350 Hz

Congratulations on moving to Seattle to design blades here and so close to the place at which I have lunch, that's the cherry on the cake!

Sometimes mistakes happen, it's inevitable, it's what you do to fix those mistakes that matters. This was supposed to be a blade for a customer, but I accidentally glued the plies the wrong way, so the medial ply was facing out on one of the sides. I had to start another blade for the customer, but instead of throwing this one in the bin I decided to add an extra layer in that side as this is a relatively light composition and the weight would still be reasonable. The result wasn't all that bad, in the end this is a 8 ply inner/outer composition and very playable. The feeling is similar to the Innegra-Carbon blades I've been making but with a little extra speed due to the added thickness, making this a solid Off blade.

Composition: Tola / Framiré / Innegra-Carbon / Framiré / Kiri / Framiré / Innegra-Carbon / Framiré
Weight: 91g
Thickness: ~6.35m
Freq.: 1400 Hz
Balance: 2.7 cm (low)

A little experiment I did using two bouncy woods, Hinoki and Fineline. Don't let the relatively low frequency fool you, this thing is soft but fast!

Weight: 95.8g
Thickness: ~6.0mm
Freq.: 1290 Hz
Balance: 2.9cm (Low)
