OK, that's a start.
We're going somewhere! LOL 

In my opinion, Viscaria is neither hexagonal nor heptagonal, it is more oneagonal.

Oh, this is precious: The detailed review poster is in the Philippines and the poster has the blade?  The Philippines?

Now it is obvious what is needed for the best understanding: How does it compare to the much-used popular blades like Viscaria and the Timo Boll series.  

The interesting and informative review indicates it is a first rate blade; if so, it is not inappropriately priced.

Thanks.

What has the location have to do with the review?? And yes I have blades from different companies now for 10 years. Why would I compare it directly to a Viscaria if it has a different structure? The Cybershape has an inner carbon layer??
Its is almost the end of 2021 and people online still insert stupid comments. Goodness!

@yogi_bear 

Thanks for the review, could you also mention about the dwell / spin characteristics of this blade? I guess being an inner carbon blade it would play similarly to say innerforce ALC or hurricane long 5? Also, how does it feel in the short push game (especially with say Chinese rubbers)?

I have used it with H3 37 and as was mentioned in the review an entry level chinese rubber. It was a Sanwei T-88 that has 2 layers of Seamoon. It dis not feel too bouncy with both Euro and Chinese rubbers. There were times the IF ALC was a bit faster. It ia not picky on rubbers. If you worry about short shots, you will not have any problem with Cybershape.

Carbonized veneer is the key.
What is it? Well, it is the greatest innovative wooden material introduced by Chinese XVN since 2010.

Reply to yogi bear

I am the second one I think the first one is not me.
If Stiga would have made a cheaper model from normal or 5 or 7 plie wood for a normal price I would have bougt it there.
There is also someone in Turkey *(thats the foto bellow) who made this model. But I did not know about that one.
And by the time I found out I ordered allready the other one.
But I still have about 7 or 8 decent other frames / bats I can use while waiting. :-)

I just tried the penhold version. Its slightly more head heavy then standard blades. But as my blade is 83grams while my normal ones are around 93grams, its still ok.  

Used Dragon Grip on my FH as opposed to my normal H3 Neo 39degree on my Dynasty carbon. And I have to say, the larger sweet spot is very real. It almost seems like you can even hit the ball near the edge and it still feels very much like a normal ball.  I would say its way slower then Timo Bolt ALC and slightly softer/slower then the dynasty carbon.  But still pretty easy to activate the carbon even with a medium stroke. Almost plays like a control blade but faster.

I always mishit the ball in areas with poor lighting, this would probably help me reduce those errors a lot :)

No, this is my blade at the moment. Have played with it about 5 times now and really like it. 

Might be because this is just a heavier version of my regular blade, might be the new rubbers OR might be the 11% larger sweet spot and knowledge that I'm hitting with Thor's hammer.

Hopefully Stiga will produce some of their classic blades in this shape.

BTW the blade shown below is sold by me now to a team mate. Smile
I liked the SDC blade I bought better than the Chinese version cybershape and I can't afford the real one.

160x155 is a chopping blade size. If they ever release a 7ply version w/o carbon, I should be able to chop with this thing.

The guy in Portugal where I bought the other one can make it for you.
I have payed quite a reasoneble price for the beatifull looking one. *(check the first page of this subject) that one is 5 ply but he can make it as you like. (7ply or 2 different woods for backhand and forehand 1 side one sort of wood and another kond of wood and carbon on the other side, Whatever you want you can also choose the handles. etc. etc.
One of my teammates is gonna order a fast one with penholder,next month as he has no money for it now. Also because of the different size you cant use old rubbers on it, so you have to buy new rubbers.
I bought mine from SDC

Dear Sir,
Your information is very prompting, indeed.

Thanks a lot
Yours gratefully

I didn't read the review, but I really like the Stiga's  "clout"
If Aruna....we would have the same hype with green rubbers because one leg Timo Boll was not hard to beat, shout out LHA Lanak for taking his  "L"

STUOR looks the closest to the original product. I dont bother much about the geometry unless I want to get a real feel of STIGA Cybershape.
