I just ordered this blade and originally I thought it was 5 ply African cherry but it is now made with ayeous -avi-avi-avi-ayeous. Does this play differently than the original? Is the spin reversal still good with pips? Also what kind of wood is avi?

Thanks in advance!

It doesn't come up on Wikipedia. Maybe Charlie would tell you? :lol:

I would like to know what avi is as well.

I know at least 1 member here who can calculate a blade's characteristics if you tell him the veneer types and overall thickness.

I'd be far more interested in knowing how he does it (and how well it works) than the characteristics of any given blade.

For that you'll have to ask adyy. Not much of a TT player, but one heck of a guru on wood and engineering.

Also recommend you start with searching for wood types and performance, blade frequency etc posts started by JRSDallas on MyTT. Some theories we don't agree with, but a good start. BTW, serious mental EJ awaiting.

But, we're getting off-topic again :headbang:
