The Aria blade from Xiom is one of the most powerful all-wood 5-ply blades. Aria aims the all-round power play from close to mid to far distance from the table. A thick, medium soft wood outer layer provides a neutral feel. The second layer provides clear feel and optimal balance. The overall thickness is 6.4mm, considered the maximum for maintaining the distinctive advantage of a 5-ply offensive blade. Aria gives the top level of comfort for a powerful blade. It is hard and fast, but is able to catch the ball softly and release it with great control, especially when players attack with topspin. The ball flies very fast with a sharp and aggressive trajectory. Recommended for skilled players.
