What are the oversized Balsa Carbon/ Fiberglass blades that are on a faster side (all+, off-). I developed a pretty serious case of a tennis elbow so I need something light for LP blocking yet stiff and reasonably fast. Your advice is appreciated.

Dr. Neubauer Firewall + is oversized, balsa, light and quite fast. It could be played with minimal elbow movements. How good it is or how it suits your game otherwise is different question... 8)

I play with an 68g off- balsa carbon blade, but it's made by myself so there's no real name for it :).
It's quite balanced with 2 heavy offensive rubbers because of slightly heavier handle. If you use light rubber like pips, the handles can be light and you could get a blade of even less weight.

Nexy Labyrinthos. Fast, light--75ish--oversized, balsa-carbo combi blade. Interestingly enough, I have one for sale... :rofl:

Actually, even all-wood balsa blades can be pretty darned fast - particularly the thicker ones. I used to make them out of hobby store balsa and birch ply. Thinner face plies would slow them down. A combo of 1/4" balsa and 1/32" birch ply would be rocket-fast, 3/16" core with 1/64" birch ply quite a bit slower.
