      Suggestions on Hinoki blade with rubbersi

      We probably have similar playing styles. I am currently using Joola Rossi Emotion with T05 on both sides for an active aggressive style of play. I can also use on the same blade the following rubbers: Tibhar 1Q, 5Q, Nimbus, Andro Hexer HD, Maxxx P, Rhyzm and T64.
      With the same rubbers I also like Xiom Axelo, Primorac Carbon and Tibhar Inca.

      Well, i thought the KJH has a white-ash top ply? But maybe you just like the overall performance....

      You are right. The top ply is White Ash. It does feel a little harder than I normally like. The blade still feels good though. I would like to feel a blade with the same burned core and a Limba top ply. But this setup still feels really good. And the biggest thing about this setup is handling incoming spin.

      So my previous setup: Virtuoso Plus with MXP + FXP got more spin but was more reactive to incoming spin. This setup does not get as much spin, but is less reactive to the incoming spin.

      And the KJK is probably not what someone looking for Hinoki would want.

I also feel, when Hinoki is used as the top ply in a composite blade, the blade usually ends up being REALLY rocket ship fast.

      If I was going to get a different blade than my Tibhar Kim Jung Hoon or my OSP Virtuoso Plus, I WOULD GET a Darker 7P-2A. The thinner one: The 6.2mm one.

      But if I could get a thinner all Hinoki blade, like a 5 ply all Hinoki blade that was about 5.6mm thick, that would be an amazing blade for me.

      KJH used to be my 'ultimate weapon' , 'last blade', 'take it with me to grave blade' a few months back, then I found a pre-owned Joola Rossi Emotion (have you tried this already?) which currently replaced my KJH and is now my default 'zombie apocalypse' blade meaning come 'hell and high water this is it blade'. And yes it does most of the things you love about KJH and a wee bit more. Has more power, ball gets there a little faster, just like KJH you can loop and counter loop till the cows come home, and you get that weird self assurance that so long as you loop and hit the ball there is a very high percentage the ball finds the table. Oh and its got thin Hinoki top ply feels like wood and somehow somebody has to convince you its got carbon 3rd ply!

      I think you´re quite right. But speaking of Nexy and Hinoki the Nexy Tamar series comes to my mind which is the Hinoki line of NEXY.
      I actually wanted to give the Nexy Tamar V a try (which can be purchased here: https://www.spinfactory.de/hoelzer/tamar-v.html) which is said to be quite close to the BTY Kiso Hinoki V

      The Tamar VII is probably pretty nice too, but a little more stiff. (It can be found here: https://www.spinfactory.de/hoelzer/tamar-vii.html )

      But both blades are still on my list, ´cause m 3ply Hinoki Nittaku Killton still does an amazing job...
      Instrument of choice:
      Blade: Nittaku Shake Carbon Offence
      FH: DHS Hurricane 3 Neo
      Provincial Blue Sponge

      BH: BTY Tenergy 05

      Backup instrument:
      Blade: Nittaku Combi Wood Attack
      FH: DHS Hurricane 3 Neo
      National Blue Sponge
      BH: BTY Tenergy 05
