I now have both of this blades and thought to put up few pics of them and compare them as well as there is significant differents betteen the two.

Photo of Acustic

Photos of Violin

Ok now to compare the two.
I use on both blades on F/H Butterfly Tenergy 05 2.1 and on B/H Roxon 450 1.8

*Quality: quality of both blades is superb no rugh edges and blades come
pre seald with light coat and I put two more layers of selar on
both blades

*Feel: Violin has hard feel with vibration and it is flexy
Acustic has medium hard feel with almoast no vibration and
wery little or no flex compared to Violin.

*Trow: Violin has a lot higher trow than Acustic and its easyer to loop
almoast effortless but on B/H i had to close bat more beacuse
of that then with Acustic

*Service: Both blades are fine here as they are not bouncy same with
return on service

*Pushing As in service case pushing is easy with both blades and can
keep ball low with nice backspin

*Dwell
Time: Violin has little bit biger dwell then Acustic and im able to
generate slightly more spin on looping and serving with Violin

*Block
&
Counter Blocking is fast and easy to direct ball.With violin i have to
close the angle more as has higher trow and is matter of
geting used to that.
Countering loop is with nice power and speed

*Looping: Due higher trow with Violin its little easyer to loop and has
higher arc when im loopin wich makes easyer to clear the
net from away of the table
Looping with acustic i have to open bat bit more and loops
have low flying arc and its bit harder to clear net from away
of the table

*Speed: Both blade apears to me with same speed as they are rated
by Nittaku manufacturer only difference when bouncing ball
on blades Violin has less of a bounce then Acustic but on fast
loops and hiting and smashing speed is the same to me

*Control: Both blades have Nittaku rating of 8.5 for control and i felt that
i can control the ball same on both blades so i say Nittaku has
rated both fine.

*Playing
distance: Both blades are great at the table and mid distance little bit
strugle from back of the court but with longer swing and
more efort i was able to play powerfull loops but best distance
for both is mid from table.

Finalised: I read some reviews were was said that Violin is to slow and
based on that I got acustic first and my Ej ism didnt leave me
unthil i got Violin and i was supprised that actualy speed is
the same buy my opinion.
So wehen player wants to buy one question is always which
one?
Speed wise both are good,control same thing difference is in
trow,vibration and flex
So is player is after high trow,vibration and flex Violin is the
One
If player is after low to medium trow,medium hard fell and no
no vibration go for Acustic.


I hope that this review will help and if any opposite opinion than mine is welcome.

Nice review/comparison Purge. How do these compare with HK you think? I've always had the feeling HK and Accoustic would be similar in most aspects. Is this close to the truth?

Since I didnt play with HK for 2 months now its hard to tell but HK in feel was somewere in bettwen the other two and in speed about the same.
More like acustic with not much vibration and bigger head size .

I know this is quite an old post but I just thought I'd add my thoughts.

I've been playing with the Violin all summer and I find it to be a very good blade indeed. Great to loop with, easy to control blocks and it has a very distinctive feel to it. In fact I'd say that to date, it's the best blade that I've played with!

However I've not been getting on very well with my hitting on the backhand with Bomb Talent OX. It's hard to pick up the ball when they are played slowly with little spin, so my father had an Acoustic blade lying around with a sponged version of Bomb Talent on it.

Anyway, the forehand rubbers are identical (I play with Roxon 450) and I have to say that I found the Acoustic much nicer to hit with. In fact although it was a little bit quicker than my Violin, I could actually place the ball on the table a lot easier. I still need to work on my loops because the throw is a little different, but overall I found the Acoustic an exceptionally nice blade to play with.

So my comments on the two would be, if you want to hit the ball with more power but just as much (if not more control), then go for the Acoustic. If however you want to play closer to the table, I would probably go for the Violin.

How is Acoustic comparing to Stiga Clipper classic in terms of speed , hardness, throw ...?

I've never played with a Stiga Clipper so it's hard to comment. All I would say though is that the Acoustic is a faster blade than the Violin with a lower throw angle.

Yes, I vastly preferred the acoustic to the Violin as well. IMO the Violin's touch is slightly better though ...
