Wanokiwami - a unique project. Takeshi Wanaka, a Japanese carpenter 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. The andro development team has impressively accomplished to guide these influences and ideas into the right direction and the result is a qualitatively outstanding blade line. Promotion players, coaches and test players have confirmed this numerous tests with one voice.

The Wanokiwami AO convinces you right from the moment you take it into your hand for the first time. Carefully grinded corners, an ergonomically adapted thumb pad and 100% evenly thick veneers - that's pure feeling!
The wood's soul is a 4.2mm thick core veneer providing the wood a high flexural strength resulting in a direct and straightforward ball-feedback. The two affixed intermediate and upper veneers provide a special distinguishing feeling transorming AO into a top-class wood.

Wanokiwami AO - a wood like none another.

The blade has a soft touch with a crisp feeling. Little vibrations but not unpleasant. It is very controllable fast. Imo the Wanokiwami is an easy play blade. And crazy spin trajectory is absolutely right. Linear speed. Medium throw. Works good with medium hard to hard rubbers. One of the best Andro blades.

very good blade with fantastic finsh, handle and control, not to fast but mostly fast enougn, try it and you will be a fan too.

I'm an intermediate level player. I have achieved results with this blade. I have been able to make more consistent rallies in both attack and defense. Good speed. Excellent control. Works well either near or half distance.

Ignore comments from user anandkeshav. It is absolutely not as slow as that user indicated, and it's worth noting they have reviewed no other items so their opinion should be taken with a grain of salt. The blade is on the fast side of OFF-, or may be seen by some as OFF, depending on what you're comparing it to. It's speed is similar to the TSPW or Nittaku S-5, around '9' - I only rated it 10 in the stats so the overall rating rose from 8.7, which I believe is too slow. Throw angle and dwell make for a great looping blade, with a soft balsa feel and sound. Although it sounds like balsa with rubbers glued on and hitting balls, the middle ply is not balsa. It has a somewhat high pitch when bouncing ball directly onto the naked blade, which indicates it's relatively fast speed for a 5 ply wood. Has plenty of power available even at distance and loops backspin balls well. I agree with ttandi, the blade is finished very well, with a very comfortable handle and overall feel.
