The Galaxy Venus V-12 blade is the 2010 replacement for the Galaxy K-2 blade. This means that the V-12 is a fast, smooth looping blade built in the same style as Japanese looping blades.

Slower, more controlled version of the V-11/K-1

What is CarboKev?

Each layer of cloth is made up of two fibers, the vertical is Carbon Fiber while the horizontal is made of Kevlar fibers. This gives the sweet-spot of carbon, but less hard and harsh of a feel.

An excellent attacking, do-it-all blade, It has heaps of control for delicate shots and short balls and more than enough power when the ball has to be put away! At 6mm thick, (my blade weighs 91 grams), it gives good feedback without nasty, 'clunky' vibrations. I think this comes from the combination of the outer hinoki plies and the carbokev layers. The carbokev also adds rigidity-just rigid enough to make great blocks and powerful smashes. I don't feel there is flex on hard shots; I like it this way. I like my blade to give a linear response without sudden sharp increase in oomph! Paired with H2 Neo 2.1mm black on FH and Xiom Vega Asia 2mm on BH, the whole setup is weight balanced and capable of all offensive shots. I use a "Chinese style" FH and this combination works for me. If you like an even more rigid blade, then Venus V13 blade (thickness 6.5mm) will fit the requirement. However, V13 gives a more muted ball feel. Between the two variants, I prefer the feel of the V12! The quality of the hinoki plies looks excellent. The handle is beefy enough and not skinny. I had to sand off some sharp edges at the neck for added comfort. Its performance to price ratio is excellent!

Good allround blade with two Carbon-kevlar layers, so it has power when you need it, but feels and sounds like an all wood blade rather than carbon. Medium-fast ALL+ with good control.
