Blade: XVT Balsa Carbon 10mm all
FH: Xiom Sigma Pro 2 2.0
BH: Globe 979 OX
FYI .. XVT Balsa Carbon  blade 10 mm thick .. at their website  .. is Type .. All .. but the stamp on the blade says .. OFF .. even in their picture ..

http://www.xvt.cc/xvt-balsa-carbon-p-1168.html

I made inquiry to XVT. They said per users experience the blade is more All Type.

It has a good dampening effect when using long pips OX for blocking.

Hard for me to imagine how a 10mm balsa carbon could only rate an ALL.

It's definitely slower than the Yinhe T-10/T-10+ which is also a 10mm balsa carbon blade.

This blade is Hinoki with balsa core, which is supposed to be a very good combo for a long pips side.

Balsa has the softest Janka rating for wood hardness of all that are used for making blades.

Yes balsa is very soft. The blade is balsa/carbon/hinoki. In my experience 10mm+ balsa core blades are light, stiff and fast, even without carbon. But perhaps they can vary more than I was aware.

I have blocked a loop kill shot which hit twice on his side of the table.
