LKT Ayous Hinoki blade
The Blade is a control oriented Off- and one of the better
all wood Chinese blades I have come across. The Ayous Hinoki has the typical small flair, but is a very
nice blade. The tone is a somewhere between the Instinct and Instinct+, making
it a little harder and faster than something like Primorac, but still very high
control for a Chinese blade
Itís good, it is a light Off wood around 80gr on the
balance, the handle is a hair larger than the handles friendship concave, easier
to hold in your hand. What surprised in first it is the enormous control of
wood, I thought that it was going to miss speed, but not the Hinoki folds give a
blow of whip in the speed, which one wants to accelerate the ball.
I will buy the new a LKT Ayous-Hinoki which is goes very
well with F3, a loud noise, and the power of spin is enormous (super topspin
from around 4 meters behind the table!) I just like the control which is offered
by this wood, the characteristics that I did not find with my Jonyer-H or the JZ
Kevlar ultra topspin. I think that the combination of the plies of
ayous-hinoki-balsa is perfect for Formula DONIC!
