The XYLO series gives players the classic all wood feel of the game, with modern day speed. This 5-ply version consists of Ayous & Kiri in the inner layers, which provides the perfect amount of control and feedback. For the top layer, an exclusive “burned” Hinoki veneer was selected. A special heating technique ensures the Hinoki has a higher stiffness for speed, and an overall balance and consistency for the whole blade. If you’re looking for control, precision, and an all-natural feel, the XYLO 5 blade is the perfect choice for you.
