Huaruite Palisander NCT VII
An excellent quality hardwood 7-ply; the 2nd layer seems to be soft carbon, not the wood. The blade is really fast, Off to Off+, but has amazing spin capability, much higher than that of HRT Clipper. The control is also very good for the given speed - even the short game was not much of an issue after some adjustment period. I was literally in love with how the H3 Prov played on the FH with this thing - good touch on the table plus wide variation of both speed and spin available. Had to put it away, though, as the speed was too high (or, maybe, just the top layer too hard) for the SP BH, at least, for my level. Still, quite sure I will have another go with it if and when I decide to switch back to inverted.
