Alx,
my perception is that the 2 North American sources for
LKT Toxic blades (zeropong and colestt)
only stock straight handles.

Maybe,
If I really want a flared handled Toxic 3 badly enough,
I could special order from one of two N.A. vendors
and
be prepared to be very, very patient.

I did see the flared handle Toxic blades advertised outside of North America
so you have educated me that they exist.
Thanks.

Anybody try single-ply hinoki (or cypress/cedar) hardbat? Seems like the softness+flexibility could potentially work really well with an aggressive style.

Continuing the theme of my post of 29 May 2016....

About a month ago I began using a older hardbat setup assembled about 2007...
Blade: from a Juic Smasher pre-made with the original rubber removed
Rubber, both sides: Yasaka A-1-2 A~1.
My goal is mainly to see of the slightly less spinny rubber (vs Butterfly OX)
would make serve return easier.
[Serve returns turned out to be about the same.]

But,
the Juic/Yasaka, 155gm, set-up is heavier than my LktInstinct5/BtyOX, 125gm, set-up,
but not as heavy feeling as the Barna/AndroClassic set-up from my 29-May-2016 post.

I'm liking the more stable feeling on blocks.

But alas, my level of play is about the same. Sigh.
