Blade: Trinity Carbon
FH: Victas VS > 401
BH: Dornenglanz OX
This blade is supposedly the Victas Flagship blade, used by Koki Niwa (with V 15 Extra rubbers), so I thought I'd check it out and take some pictures.

As you can see from the 2nd picture (click to zoom in), this blade is quite unique, having 2 different types of composite layers. It has a carbon fleece layer beneath the out ply (which looks like limba), which is designed to offer more spin potential with the latest generation of rubbers.
Underneath this there is another wood ply, followed by an Aramid Carbon layer, which is designed to add power and stability to the blade. Then there's an inner core (probably ayous).

Here is the desciption by Victas for this blade:

VICTAS Quartet AFC is a fast, high-quality offensive blade featuring excellent control thanks to well-balanced DSE technology. An Aramid Carbon layer, a combination of elastic aramid and tough carbon fibres, is applied directly on the core ply of the Quartet AFC blade and provides for extra speed and stability. The outer Fleece Carbon layer increases the blades spin potential and will give you an extraordinary level of control which you will hardly find in any other blade in this speed class. Take your offensive play to a new level with the power and vigour of Quartet AFC.
