The JOOLA Air Carbon consists of a built-in balsa core that measures 5mm in thickness. This core provides a special feeling and control. It is also a very lightweight blade weighing between 71 to 72 grams. The design of this blade was created with player needs in mind. The ping pong player benefits from the saved power so that he can concentrate on his or her shots.
The JOOLA Air Carbon blade also has a 5 wood ply and a 2 carbon ply built upon the balsa core. It has a carbon layer that supplies speed when required. The carbon net sheet also enhances precision and the sweet spot leading to an offensive blade that offers excellent performance and controllability. The low weight is also advantageous in that it minimizes strain on the player’s elbow and wrist and permits quicker recovery during strong rallies.
The light nature of this ping pong blade is due to the extreme drying and storage process that gets rid of all the moisture from the wood. The final result is a blade that possesses excellent game features. The ping pong player requires minimal power to hold the blade. As such, he can save the energy to use in more essential activities such as concentrating on controlled movements when playing a shot. The drying and storage process in the production of this blade guarantees that the weight values align with JOOLA standards of offensive blades.
Besides the 5+2 veneers, balsa core and the carbon layer, the JOOLA Air Carbon also consists of Limba and Fineline grey layers. These materials enhance the durability and stability of the blade. While using this blade the backhand and forehand attacking shots are almost effortless. The Blocking process is quick but takes a while to adapt, especially if you have been using heavy blades. The backhand push is controlled.
The JOOLA air carbon blades are of two kinds; the flared and straight handle. This is to suit the player’s handle preferences and enhance grip. The choice of the handle type depends on player’s choice. Both blades are useful in backhand and forehand shots and allow free movement. For offensive players, the Air Carbon blade is handy. You can smash the ball hard with precision and without losing control. It is excellent for blocking. Also, JOOLA Air Carbon has an epoxy around the edge to shield the wood from chipping.
