Ame-sama has decided to get a new customised blade that will suit Ame-sama’s Short Pips game play.
Ame-sama is ordering a blade from another Maker from Connecticut, USA
The Name is “Tricky1 Blades” aka Richard Smith
- Straight Handle
- 157x150mm Headsize
- Weight: 89-92 gms
Ame-sama’s Blade Composition:
Ame-sama has always longed for Hinoki Outerply with Carbon underneath. One Size is has Wenge to make that side a bit more stiff/hard that compliments with Ame-sama’s FH Shortpips. and Softer on the Other side with Hinoki for the regular BH Rubber.
Ame-sama’s Worry is that it is too thin and the FH side turns thicker than the BH Side making the balance bad. Ame-sama is waiting for Rick’s Reply.
Plies being pressed and vacuum sealed:
This is the Completed Product
Ame-sama’s review is that this has 2 speeds. FH is Off and BH is Off-.
If you have observed the photo of the plies, you will see that the middle ply is quite thin and there is a thick black wood in the FH side. The FH side feels Soft yet Stiff and the BH side feels Soft and Med Soft in terms of Stiffness/Flexibility. Like any other carbon, it has a huge sweet spot. The Craftsmanship was quite good but it is not Ame-sama’s Cup of Tea. Ame-sama will always be a Wood Blade fan because ame-sama likes the vibration that an all wood blade provides and the carbon blade mutes it.
Tricky1 was able to produce a fine blade according to Ame-sama’s Specs and weight preference. a good 93gms just the way ame-sama likes it..
That’s All Folks!!
Till the next update.
