The popular Photino blade now in a lighter version.

A slightly modified head shape has effectively reduced the blade weight.

Offers the same soft feel of the original Photino with plenty of power, but 12 grams lighter!

Hinoki outer plies combined with Butterfly's ZL Fiber.

Very powerful for a light blade and she is a bad-ass. Paired it with Tenergy 05-FX (2.1) on both sides and it gives the blade a very nice touch and feel with controllable speed and blocks very well. Blade weighed 74 grams before adding the medium soft rubber which took it to a total weight of 167 grams. Very much fun to play with and the flared handle sits perfectly in my hand. The color of the handle stands out and gives the blade its own identity (gorgeous and beautifully designed). Will try Tibhar Evolution MX-P Max next when the T05-FX wears out. Very nice product and so happy I got my hands on one of these before they totally disappear. Sibling blade to the regular Photino and she is a monster. Five stars and a BIG 10.

Excellent control (feather light) - no matter distance or speed. Speed canon even with medium-soft rubbers. Head heavy with Tenergy rubbers. I played with Genius Sound (FH) and Sinus Sound (BH). Easy to serve, loop, block and smash.

Its an off+ blade, faster than a Boll ZLC or MJ ZLC. The feeling is soft, just like the original photino, even more soft. Ultra light weight will please many players. The sweet spot is large, just like the original photino, quite suprising since my photino light is only 71gr. Tested with T64frex 1.7bh and fh, the throw angle is high, dwell time amazing, feeling and control unmatched for this level of speed. Just like the original photino the blade is a beauty. The best ultra light weight off+ blade ever made.

I got that blade since april this year. I waited enough to tell you my opinion about "Photino Light". Indeed this blade is very fast and difficult to control. But with soft rubbers the "Photino Light" became more controlable. Untill now I have played with six blades, but now I think that I found the properly blade for many years.

The handle is too wide for me and the bright colours will look "dirty" very soon. Speed is fast, a little faster than Innerforce ZLF/ZLC, but slower than Iolite Neo.

Review it!
