The first layer is made from softwood which gives you longer dwelling time on the ball and more feeling, just under this layers, there is a very thin layer of carbon that provides the blade with stability and control for big hits. The outer layers of limba provide a soft touch on the net, and Zephilium Carbon gives it speed on the faster stroke
