Don't know about the current Huichuan (I have the older one without the monkey face) but it seems to be an old-school basswood blade with a smallish flared handle. Fairly hard and solid, not terribly heavy though (80 grams).

Hmmmm....

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2x-Gala ... 53505.html

Normal price (3-4 days ago): USD 10.30 (2 sheets)
Right before 11/11 sale: USD 11.99
On 11/11: USD 10.19.

Savings: 11 cents (figures). :lol: I wonder if it goes back down to $10.30 AFTER the 11/11 sale.

Here's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it deal. Sports Direct in the UK have the Mizuno Crossmatch Plio RX2 on special at £35 as part of their current sale.

Sports Direct's Crossmatch is only a few pounds cheaper than Bribar's sale price for the same product, but for the next oh…not quite 4 hours, there's also free express shipping worldwide using the coupon code NY2017, provided you order using the Sports Direct mobile app. Ordered myself a pair for ~AUD60 delivered.

Probably the last chance to get a M8 for about $7. One of these will work:

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Hot-sel ... 22548.html

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/SANWEI- ... 84830.html

The second one will yield a sub $7 price if you order five blades AND use the $2 coupon. The first one is cheaper if you only want one blade. Note the limited amounts available - I suspect when these are gone, they're gone. Everywhere else, the price is at least double.

If you're bulk ordering for friends/a bunch of students the same vendor has a pretty good price on Corbor:

Dang, that's cheap.

Ali Battleship (yet another nom de AliExpress for Eacheng) has the Sanwei M8 on sale. They've added the latest blue handled ones to the listing, too. And a penhold version. Normally Eacheng wants $14-15 (up to over $20!) for one of these. Here they're on sale (including shipping) at $8.42. Wait, though - buy two and they're $16.50 - i.e. $8.25 each. Wait, though.. what's this?? $11 off a $40 order. Buy FIVE (you're only allowed to buy five! :lol: ) and the price is $41.25. Take off $11 and that's $30.25. Oh wait - put that in your cart, and then GET A SELLER COUPON. Another $2 off!! Now it's down to.. uh oh, $28.25??? That's less than $6 each. You can probably ask for one of each color plus the penhold.. :lol: Mind you, you don't HAVE to buy five blades, a mix of other merchandise costing over $40 would work, but Ali Battleship has some of the highest prices among the Eachengs.

These are great blades by the way - just the right amount of vibration, fantastic feel. Why five blades? Oh, I dunno - sell them to your friends, organize a group buy (but buy first, you only have four days left). It IS Chinese New Year (Happy Year of the Chicken, everyone.. :lol: ) so shipping will be slower than usual, just be forewarned. But then you don't really need these tomorrow, right? By the way - don't believe the "OFF+" - that's a typo. You don't usually see typos on BLADES, of all things, but here's one.

Yeah, I ordered five :lol: Different colors, and I asked for lightest blades. Let's see what I get.

Interesting that the photo showing all 4 blades has significantly different top ply color shades. A product of Photoshop or inconsistent Chinese quality?

No such issues with the Appelgren.

Different batches of veneer perhaps. Or different cameras on different days. I doubt there'd be a difference in playing quality, but we'll see. Can't really complain, at that price. :lol: The two I have been playing with are excellent. With this many blades I can actually do statistics on weight (the four I've weighed DO vary a lot on weight - everything from 72g to 79g - I asked for the "lightest blade" on the first order and "something close to 80 grams" on the second. Not that huge weight variations are not unknown in even the most expensive blades.)

3 days left.. :lol:
