Sometimes a softer sponge inverted rubber on this blade is hard to control.

Loopover - I've been mulling over the prospect of using inverted on both sides of this blade ... Sorry, but, you'll be the guinea-pig ... Waiting for your review..

BTW, I have a 39°-40° (As mentioned on the backside of the rubber) of the Focus III Snipe, on this blade, and its really awesome, for both, attacking (BH and FH, especially for flat-out hitting), and for blocking... With a slight adjustment in technique, even topspins are very good.. However, they are not so spinny...

Are you using the XVT with double-inverted.

Not yet, but it works good with Xiom inverted with hard sponge, so should be the same on the bh with hard sponge since it would never bottom out anyway.

Yep .... I was using it with a 40° (So, it says on the reverse side, but I suspect its harder) 729 Focus III Snipe, and it works well... I've ordered a pair of Reactor Corbor, from AliExpress ($8 odd).... Thy're supposed to be on the harder side (On paper, atleast) ... I'll glue one onto the XVT...

...so, I glued-on the Reactor Corbor ... and, upon just holding the setup, immediately after gluing, the first think that came to mind was oh no!!! ..... eeesshhh ... By just holding it (not even playing), the blade felt very different, a lot heavier, imbalanced, and very clunky...

I played with the next day, and it seemed unwieldy ... The Reactor Corbor is heavier than the Focus III Snipe, and the blade itself is quite light, which made the entire setup seems imbalanced.... I like the Corbor + 729 C5 combo, but not the Corbor + XVT Blasa Hinoki....

According to me, this blade is not meant to be used with double-inverted... Atleast not with heavy and/or max thickness rubbers.

Advice on balsa blades from the ReImpact people seems to be that you should use thinner sponge, since the blade face itself acts like a drumskin and therefore like sponge.
