How "Low" is your low?
For me, anything from/between $100 - $150 USD is ok/low/affordable enough.
There are alotta cheapies/crxps made by you-know-which country.
To me, those are copycats/fakes & just waste of $$$$ to buy/play with.
You will regret it at the end of the day.
There are in fact alotta these shxts which shipping cost is more than its cost.

$150 for a blade become hard for me to justify. I've played with nearly every blade imaginable at every price-point. The higher-end blades are trendy (easier to re-sel) and usually have a better quality finish, but for my game the difference between a $30 and $300 blade is a small % in performance. I can make a much bigger difference in technique and strategy.

TZ! Its your RPBing Jpen friend.

Do you want 1-ply hinoki feel or just whatever?

If you can find a TSP SP-55 S that's the way to go for cheap 1-ply hinoki. Played just about as well as my $200 Special Dynam 10.0 for <$65. I think they're discontinued now. 

I really, really liked the Yinhe 989 Jpen (~$30) I had. It's 5-ply mystery wood, ready for RPB, but it felt and played great, though nothing like hinoki.

Oh, also, Robin.w here on the forum might have some low dollar carbon Jpens for sale.

Thanks!! I really never played well with Hinoki. I want to like it, but it doesn't like me. I don't mind plies. I'll check out Yinhe 989. Maybe Cole has it.
