Hi Vishal,

If you really want something faster then change.  There is a wide range of blades that you can use. I don't have any specific suggestions but take a look through Butterfly's range and go for something slightly faster.

I was looking at Joola Carbon or Joola Carbon SWE. What is your opinion on these? And thanks for the prompt response.

I haven't played with these but they are both quality blades and faster.

 Yesterday I visited a local Butterfly shop and I had tried out around a dozen different blades, both carbon and all wood including the Jonyer Hinoki blade.  I am currently using a Butterfly Kiso Hinoki V as my main blade.  The Jonyer H and my Kiso Hinoki V are very similar.  I used to play with an Xiom Strato which has aramid carbon with Hinoki as outer plies.  Both are fine blades and I didn't notice any real difference between these two blades.  But the Xiom Strato costs about 3 -4 times the Kiso Hinoki V.  I assume that you are using pips rubber and play close to the table.  Carbon blades may give you the power  when played away from the table.  If you really want more speed, you might consider changing your rubbers.  In my opinion, hinoki blades are the best choice of wood; it gives you the soft-touch feeling when playing delicate strokes and yet it delivers the power and speed required when playing power shots like loop drives and smashes.  Actually, your blade is about 6 years old which should be perfect because the wood should have adequately aged and seasoned.

Hi Surapun Wongopasi,

I planned to buy a custom bat and I prefer a very light weight blade. I would like to get feedback about Butterfly Jonyer Hinoki II (AN). Going through the other sites - I got to understood that this blade has high vibration during attach/smash and some unique sound. Whether these characteristics will impact our game? As you have good experience on different blades, can you provide your inputs on that.

Thanks in advance,
