After a long time, the Carbon Strike is now available again in all 3 grip shapes!
The handles are now made of solid hinoki (older series had handles made of solid balsa).
The weight is now approx. 72g again, since the woods from the batch now received are a bit heavier.
Otherwise the wood is of course unchanged.
The Carbon Strike uses balsa as the core veneer with a thickness of 6 mm. The outer veneers are made of (hard) ash. 2 carbon inlays made of carbon fleece, the thinnest and softest type of carbon, complete this blade.
The pace of the Carbon Strike is in the offensive all-round range. Due to a special gluing, this wood is unusually elastic. Even “normal” balsa woods dampen the passive game and accelerate in the offensive, but with the Carbon Strike these properties are unusually strong. As a result, block balls (especially with short and long pimples) can be placed very short and flat behind the net. On the other hand, the blade plays in the offensive as if it had a built-in speed glue effect.
These properties allow the player to master a higher tempo than before. This wood also makes so-called combination woods superfluous.
It should be known that ash increases the rotation values of a wood. In connection with the damping properties, this wood can therefore generate an enormous disruptive effect. Overall, this blade is particularly suitable for material players, regardless of whether they play with anti, short or long pimples.
The striking surface has a size of approx. 155 x 152 mm
