Solid woods (i.e. wood without any synthetic fiber layers) are very particular. A solid wood provides a good blend of control, feel and pace, whereas the bounce should not be too hard. However, exceptional blades should be able to offer that certain something. The andro Ligna Tour does just that and provides you with the complete package of perfect balance for easy handling, fine workmanship and an exceptional feel for the ball. Each of your strokes gains quality to make it more difficult for your opponent. Ball control increases and your error ratio decreases.
Origin, water content, storage, processing method and many more aspects have big influence on the playing characteristics. For the in Germany manufactured exclusive andro LIGNA series only the finest wood, which is also used for manufacturing violins, is processed.
Particular attention is given to the sawing method of the wood veneers: Only the finest sawn veneers are processed for LIGNA woods. Major advantage is that the processing leaves no scar on the veneers behind. Consistently solid and clean cut veneers on both sides form the foundation for an outstanding feel. The wood in the way it should be.
Amazing blade with a medium hard touch. Mine is 85gr. and it is definitely offensive loopers blade. The blade makes all kind of topspin easily. Excellent dwell time with medium to hard rubbers.It remembers me to Soulspins Spin Offensive with less catapult. The Ligna Tour is fast ( not 9,7)and very controllable. Feedback goes straight to your palm. Sad that it's discontinued.
