The Nittaku Acoustic Carbon Inner Large Grip blade is exactly the same as the Acoustic Carbon Inner blade, but the handle is a little bit larger. It is a normal handle but it is made larger for those who like a larger handle grip. The Acoustic Carbon Inner (and Large Grip) are made with special wood lamination technology originally used in stringed instrument production, incorporated with new FE-carbon material positioned between the center and inner plies. This construction creates a solid feel with greater ball retention. Feel the blade in every part of your hand. Thicker wood produces solid feeling for close-to-table topspin play.
