I'm looking for a 7-ply stiff wood blade with a japanese style cork handle. It's for fast SPs. RPB possible would be best.

Any suggestions?

Have you considered a hybrid blade? This one is only 5 ply but it is listed as hard.

I mention it only because of the grip. I have another model listed as touch:mid and I like the grip for both twiddling and RPH, though I am a beginner at both.

Here is an Armstrong straight Jpen cork handle in a 7 ply, touch hard:

Also Armstrong makes a straight JPEN cork handle in a 7 ply, touch:hard, but it has an unusual grip:

Hope this helps,
Joseph

Also I did a quick search 7 ply in Japanese (木材7枚) at the site I purchased mine and I came up with these: (I don't know how they are rated for stiffness, just use google translate)

Thanks! I knew there must have been tons on japanese sites.

I think these should work.

Anyone know what this "Kase-grip" is for? Kids? People with small hands (Donald Trump need not apply.. :lol: )? A specific type of grip? Or style of play?

"Houou" would be "Phoenix".

Iskandar,

From the Armstrong website using an online translator:

http://armstrong.tokyo.jp/product_racket.html

Kase grip is easy to grip even in the smaller of the hand, even in the advanced users, at the time of switching to the back from the foreground, can set the racket quickly precise angle as if it were shake hand, a truly revolutionary that evolved penholder It is a grip.

Some more photos if you are interested:

http://blog-imgs-36.fc2.com/t/a/i/taizo ... 214722.jpg

The grip appears on a few hinoki models as well as some 5 ply models.

I purchased an Armstrong 332 blade while on vacation because I was looking for a Jpen handle with a round cpen surface. The shop ordered the 332 model, but wouldn't order more than one model at a time since I was under no obligation to buy. While looking for a rounded blade with a cork hook grip I noticed the Kase grip blades on the website, but never saw one in person. I am interested in one, but being a beginner I think I should stay with the more common handles for now.

I am currently using my blade to twiddle or at least trying to. If I decide I am better off without twiddling I will consider this blade in the future.

I have never tried one, but it seems uncomfortable to hold because the middle finger will be positioned more toward the back whilst the part between the thumb and index finger will be more forward.
