GAMBLER HINOKI IM8 CARBON PENHOLD
Exotic Hinoki IM8 Carbon is a one of a kind 3 ply wood + 2 ply IM8 Carbon this blade is fast light and nimble with very good feeling and ball feedback. Ideal for all around attacking players with an emphasis on attack, pairs well with tacky and non tacky rubbers. The hinoki gives the blade a very smooth feel, power to weight ratio is also very impressive. Outer 2x outer ply are hinoki, inner core is kuki wood.
This is my first custom paddle blade. It's very comfortable to hold and the bottom edges of the paddle are rounded so they don't dig into your fingers. Feel is good. I'd buy another.
