Hi,

Has anybody tried Andro Gauzy Sl Off blade? Does it have more control and feeling than inner carbon blades with Limba outer ply. Please let me know.

Thanks.

This blade is the same as Cornilleau Gatien Absolum that Simon used. 

 Search for Absolum reviews and you will find out how this Andro plays. 

Absolum is harder and faster compared to Innerforce ALC or ZLC.

Not sure why Gatien Absolum  is rated Off+ if the Gauzy is the same. My Gauzy SL  is 90 grams and it's Off/Off-. Slower than TB ALC but close to innerforce type blades in terms of speed. For a 7 ply it's on the thin side at 6.0mm. Even with the Ebony outer veneer the blade doesn't feel that hard and that's with Rasanter 53. The control is quite high and I haven't noticed a lack of spin . I'll probably glue on some T05 or D05 to give a fair opinion cause I'm not sure how much R53 /R47 makes it feel like it does. One last note the straight handle on this thing is huge if you like large handles you will love this thing.

I used to work as Cornilleau vendor in Brazil, in my experience with these blades the first batch of Absolum (metal lenses both sides of handle) the ebony outer was very hard. First Absolums were very heavy, I had one around 100g FL handle. It was a beast.

Latest batches the ebony outer were softer compared to the first ones, the blades were lighter (86g to 90g) more like a solid OFF blade.

Maybe your Gauzy SL feels like these latest batch Absolums.

Hi,

Do you have any idea what weight gauzy uses and does he use the old batch by cornilleau or the new ones which Andro uses now? Any ideas?

 I was shocked how it felt being Ebony . The frequency was also only 1225hz . I figured it was made in the same factory  that made the Gatien but maybe it's not or possibly they changed the glue/epoxy used  which could change the weight and "hardness". For me it's actually a pleasant surprise it plays so easy.

Have you tried other wood blades? Is it even easier to play then them?

The old batches of Absolum were much better than the latest ones due to its more solid feeling on hard shots. These new ones are not as stiff, are more spin and perhaps more control friendly. I play short pips on the backhand so i could be biased :D. My current set up is 181g (with 100g absololm) im afriad if i use the Gauzy SL i will get one th at is 90g and thus will make my setup 10g lighter. Gosh it will be alot slower!

Thank you for this valuable tidbit.

As I recall Temper Tech had a slim ST handle. Maybe other old Andro blades had too. But now that Andro's new catalogue only has 25 or so blades, many of them appear to have the type of handle you describe.

Did you realize that when Gauzy played against Gnanasekaran, the handle of his blade wasn't the one of this model?

That's the blade he has been using since he joined Andro.  Guessing it's his old blade with Andro handles .
