Hi Alois,

When dropping a ball on a blade with NO rubber on it -

is it true that generally a slower blade gives a deeper sound and a faster blade a higher sound?

So that the sound gives you an indication of the speed/flexibility of the blade?

Hi Thomas,

Yes this is reasonable way of judging the speed on the wood.  I know we used to just knock on the wood to listen to the sound it made.  The higher pitch, the faster it was.
