Hi guys,

After seeing Koudai Hiraya play, I googled to find any kind of reviews or write ups on how the Andro WANOKIWAMI MIDORI DEF blade plays. But there is very little info!

Has anyone here tried it? Can anyone shed some light on it? Stiff/flex? Slow/fast? Hard/soft?

Just after a little review on the blade!

The Blurb:

Quote:
WANOKIWAMI - a unique project. Takeshi Wanaka, a Japanese master in wood processing with the focus on processing noble woods and andro® developers worked together hand in hand. Wanaka, a well known greatness in his field with many international awards, brings all his know-how of selection, processing and bonding premium-wood into this project. The andro® development team has deliberately left a free hand to Takeshi Wanaka in many respects to allow influences from another wood processing branch. Promotion players, coaches and test players have confirmed this in numerous tests with one voice.

Wanokiwami Midori is the masterpiece of andro defensive woods. Excellently processed, providing all comforts requested by defense players. Wanokiwami Midori fulfills all wants of a modern defender. In the development process focus was set on the balance between attack and defense. The main goal was to create a blade that provides best control at a moderate pace without suffering a loss of power at attacks. andro Wanokiwami Midori mastered this balancing act with a pretty thick core veneer covered by extremely thin intermediate and outer veneers. The core veneer provides the power and the soft outer layers carry in the necessary feeling by stable control.

Class: Def
Plies: 5
Blade Size: 167x157mm
Speed:80
Control:100
Weight: 86g


"Wood processing" does sound quite industrial rather than artistic.. :lol:

Blade: Red+Black Kazak Combi
FH: DHS Hurricane 3
BH: Dr.Neubauer Desperado OX
I got it as a spare blade for 'special occasions')) i.e. for the players whom I cannot beat with my regular set-up)
it is quite slow and soft
I use Der Materialspezialist Elimination long OX on it though those pips are only good for chopping and nothing else) on FH I use Tackiness Chop 1.8
what I really love about this blade is its very convenient handle

Can you compare this blade to any of the more popular ones?
Would you say it's stiff and soft? But slow? How slow?

How is it in the chopping department?

I used to play with Joo Se Hyuk and Dr.Neubauer Barricade. If you compare it to these ones, I would say it is slower and softer than JSH, faster and as soft as Barricade
As I already wrote, chopping is very comfortable even with OX
