damn...nice Legend Flare (kinda but way better than & comfortable vs normal Legend FL) handle.
Just imagine the workmanship one needs to posses to make this ONE.
Always a huge fan of OSP V's blades.
I actually gave up a lot of my Butterfly high ends but NEVER my OSP duo (V- & V+).

I wonder what would be the difference between Virtuoso ALC and Virtuoso CRWI.

Different.... soft flexible, only on hard shots works like a regular ALC blade.
But it is Aramid Carbon.
I've written my test in :

OSP VIRTUOSO AC ( Aramid/Carbon)

FH: Dignics 80
BH: Tenergy 80

A French guy made a great review on the t2t and was translated there:
I am also eager to read about it from somebody I have read from before to get more insight. It looks like a winner to me, the Virtuoso played  with a thicker cores, carbon plies and now lands in the safe and proven territory of 5W+2AC.

I set up my OSP AC with Dignics 05 and T05FX. Blade weight is 91g and  it is the large 159mm head shape.  As soon as you hit your first shot you will notice  this blade doesnt feel like carbon  at all. Unless you hit really hard you never feel the AC. The thing you do notice  is the giant sweet spot and slight  speed increase.  To compare the speed to other OSP  blades I would say its around the speed of an Ultimate II.   The direct competition  to this blade would  be Butterfly Innerforce ALC. I feel Innerforce ALC is stiffer and slightly  faster. The OSP has more flex and an all wood feel compared to IF ALC.  For my game the OSP has much better touch and feel. The added dwell also increases spin for me add a higher margin for error since the ball is on the blade longer.  The best description for this blade when looping from either wing is autopilot. The feel of this blade also makes the blocking  game a breeze. Over the table game such as flicks are also very easy due to the dwell.  In my opinion if you are a player  who puts a premium on feel and spin quality  this blade is optimum.  If you are looking  for a carbon feel or a blade that is as fast as something  like Viscaria you will be disappointed .

I had the crwi. It was a good blade but felt stiff. The AC keeps the OSP feel with some carbon benefits .
