Butterfly Cypress Alpha-R
Very good blade and very similar to Cypress-R. Being a rounded square blade, the control is enhanced, but without any other compromise (already had a Cypress Alpha-S and did not feel too much loss of speed, maybe a half-point). The finishing of a Cypress-R is better and I would go for that instead of this one. It feels more like a defensive blade for those who like to attack once in a while. Blocking is amazing and short game is also great. You have accuracy when attacking due to the good control.
