Try a BBC Hinoki Ghost, it has a dream softish feel. The spin is high and the blocking game gets vastly improved. Even at 82gr they are still super solid with no vibrations, it's a really good design and possibly Charlie's masterpiece.

Pay attention to Rocketman's reviews. He is a friend of Charlie's but he really thinks what he writes and I agree with it, he just likes the blade very much and he supports his friend too.

Here is a live test from a forum member (the looping stud):

I recommend you buy one. If you do not like it, somebody will snatch it here in the FS section at a slight discount 😂


edit: look at that!

Thanks stiltt and doraemon.

Really interesting the BBC blades! I might order the Hinoki ghost.

As for the adidas challenge, the analysis is spot on, they are nearly the same.

While i'm still collecting info, I've decided to try applying grip tape on Korbel. 

Anyway for us big hands players is really difficult to find the right handle...

I keep reading about this blade.  My buddy recently got one.  It appears that they've thickened it slightly for the new ball.  Read somewhere recently on an asian sight (it was translated, I remember that) that it was designed by a joint effort between Banda & Nittaku when Waldner was still sponsored by them.  Then when he shortly thereafter left them for Donic, the design followed him and became the blade we know today.  While for Nittaku's efforts, the design became the AcousticTongue
