The spin Lord Ultra Balsa is now available as new fifth version. High quality carbon replaces the wooden veneers and makes the construction very stable. The outer veneers are made from Koto in natural colour. The centre ply is made of 6 mm thick balsa. The Ultra Balsa V is a fast offensive blade with good control values whereas carbon enlarges the sweet spot of the blade. SPINLORD Ultra Balsa produces a bright and very loud sound, which acoustically provides feedback about ball meeting point. The weight of the blade is still at about 72 g, though there are hardly any heavier pieces in this latest version. SPINLORD Ultra Balsa is recommended in combination with soft rubbers. It would become head heavy with harder rubbers.
