Blades with an intermediate synthetic fiber layer mostly have only milliseconds to prove to be a top-blade. The one millisecond in which the ball touches the bat and immediately bounces back. Woods, like Andro® LIGNA F.R., that are preciously processed, evenly glued and designed with love for the detail, leave a strong imprint here. You can feel that the large sweetspot provides a constant impulse at any spot of the blade. Feel the even outflow of the ball without having any loss of control when switching from passive to active strokes, whilst the pace reserves are fully activated.
Andro Ligna Blades:
Origin, water content, storage, processing method and many more aspects have big influence on a blade’s playing characteristics. For the German-manufactured exclusive Andro® LIGNA series, only the finest wood - which is also used for manufacturing violins - is processed. Particular attention is given to the sawing method of the wood veneers: Only the finest sawn veneers are processed for LIGNA woods. Major advantage is that this processing leaves no scar on the veneers behind. Consistently solid and clean cut veneers on both sides form the foundation for an outstanding feel. Wood in the way it should be.
Fiber blade with good feel
This fiber blade has a good wood feel. No tonk-tonk sound. Mine is paired with the medium soft 40 degree Rasant Powersponge rubber. Clearance price is a good value. Expect any blades left will have a weight of 90+ grams.
