This is probably the most beautiful blade you have made so far but of course it's personal. It encompasses and gets on top of everything composite.

Question: the medial ply of the ZJK SZLC is limba and this one has ayous, what ayous gives compared to limba as the medial ply in 2 blades supposedly close to each other? I would imagine a stronger rebound and from it?

I want it so badly!!!

Thanks, I think so also. 

That is a common misconception, the ZJK SZLC does no have a limba medial ply, in fact that is valid for most Butterfly's outer and inner fiber blades. I can say this with 100% certainty. I also de-laminated an innerforce zlc and saw the inner plies, so that basically taken every doubt I could have out of my mind. I've been meaning to make a post about that but I haven't had the time.

This one is for sale so it can be yours...

I have to admit there was an inspiration in a certain recent Butterfly blade  I love the look of the Revoldia, so I wanted to make something similar without looking like a flat out copy. Composition wise it's also similar, except for the CNF layer, however I experimented with something I hope will give similar results.

Composition : Koto / Magic fairy dust / Ayous / Kiri / Ayous / Magic fairy dust / Koto
Weight: 88.2g
Thickness: 5.8mm
Freq. : 1270 Hz
Balance: 2.9cm (Low)








SDC,  please explain what balance means in "Balance: 2.9cm (Low)".  Thank you.

This one was supposed to be put for sale, but it was gone before I even had the opportunity. Initially, I just wanted to use the cool looking Mahoghany Pommele layer, but then the idea of making an handle inspired by the Templar Knights popped into my head. As is turns out, it does not only look good, but it plays really well too.

Composition: Mahogany / Yellow Pine / Kiri / Yellow Pine / Mahogany
Thickness: 5.95mm
Weight: 91.7g
Freq.: 1184Hz
Balance: 2.9cm (Low/Med)

Right looking balance, middle good freq, and stunning woods, but on the very light end of the weight optimization continuum... :D Bet a whole shipping container of Cheese-Its we could blindfold test this puppy and play same level though.

I'm making this one available on the website. It is based on an Apolónia ZLC but with SZLC instead, which gives some extra speed in the higher gears and a larger sweetspot.

Composition: Black Limba / Ayous / SZLC / Ayous / SZLC / Ayous / Black Limba
Weight: 88.3g
Thickness: 5.60mm

The owner of this blade was looking for a 5 ply with roughly the same performance as the Tibhar Stratus Power Wood, but with a little more flex and speed, and also a handle that would fit his big sized hands. I'm glad to say that we were able to achieve that 🙂

Composition: Black Limba / Yellow Pine / Ayous / Yellow Pine / Black Limba
Weight: 91.3g
Thickness: 5.80mm
Balance: 2.4cm (Low)

The difference a top ply makes. Blue fig is soft, almost as soft as Ayous, so even at 6.15mm this blade is not stiff at all. The feeling is relatively soft, but speed wise it is faster than the frequency reading suggests, probably in the Off- range.

Available FS.

Composition: Blue Fig / Ayous / ALC / Ayous / ALC / Ayous / Blue Fig
Weight: 88.3g
Thickness: 6.15mm

Nice looking job Sergio. Always fun seeing you trying out/using different kind of wood.

Already own 3 SDC blades and soon start playing again. Will do some reviews on these blades.

YES! I like above all your will to do what people ask. I have seen blade makers in the past criticizing a request in function of what people say about their game and I could not understand why they would not do something people want when they do not like an idea. 

I see you as somebody who will do anything your customers ask simply because good or bad, any composition gives feedback and information about what is good and less good to both the blade builder and the customer, everybody wins. If it's a fail, we all learn from it.

Why would a blade maker wear blinkers and refuse additional information about blade building because they think they know what's best for a player? ego and blinkers! I am glad you're not one of them.

What I offer is a customization service, so if anybody wants to try something crazy I'm all up for it, so as long it's within my abilities. If it's not, then I will try to find a way to do it, that's what pushes me to improve. If I was just making "Viscarias" for everybody, then this would be no fun at all.

I see some interest in combi blades so here's one I recently made. This one is inner Limba/ALC on one side and outer ZLC/Koto on the other, with an Ayous core. The difference in composition is not big enough to create a massive speed distinction between sides. However, there is definitely a difference in feel, with the Koto side being more direct. Speed wise it is probably in the Off-/Off range.

Available FS.

My first incursion with Soft Carbon in a classic composition. Nice woody feeling and feedback but with a more stable hitting area. Still a relatively high throw blade that is somewhere in the Off- range. Handle is Indian Rosewood with a Padauk cap.
