Handmade in Germany.
Blades with an intermediate synthetic fiber layer mostly have only milliseconds to proof to be a top-blade. The one millisecond in which the ball touches the bat and immediately bounces back. Woods, like andro Ligna F. R., that are preciously processed, evenly glued and designed with love for the detail, leave a strong imprint here. You can feel that the large sweetspot provides a constant impulse at any spot of the blade. Feel the even outflow of the ball without having any loss of control when switching from passive to active strokes, whilst the pace reserves are fully activated. These are precisely those milliseconds in which the andro Ligna FR shows its strengths and where your gaming develops.
Origin, water content, storage, processing method and many more aspects have big influence on the playing characteristics.
For the in Germany manufactured exclusive andro LIGNA series only the finest wood, which is also used for manufacturing violins, is processed.

Reviews of Andro Ligna FR OFF (6)
Speed of this blade wasn’t as fast as the ratings would indicate. Comparing this against my Donic Waldner Dotec Carbon it felt dead in my hand. Not the power I thought I was going to get! I’m a 1500 player...
This is a good looking, most controlled and highly underrated blade. It has one of the best feelings together with high dwell time. It can support many different offensive styles depending on rubber choice. It is as speedy as famous bty alc blades for my taste and also super consistent.
I have gone through many different Stiga blades but I kept returning to my Alser Carb 7 blade for some reason - not the most exciting but a very light blade with great feedback. After using Andro rubbers for a while I decided to venture outside of Stiga blades and ordered the Andro Ligna Fibre Reinforced OFF.
In short: fantastic blade. There is nothing this blade won't allow me to do within my own limits. It genuinely gets the most out of the rubbers. I use it with Andro R42/V42 and Impuls Powersponge. The blade has great feedback on ball contact and has all the gears needed for delicate touch play all the way to powersmashing. Huge sweetspot which has improved my smash and drive returns from far away and allows me to return hard drives with ease and precision. Fast drive rallies are incredibly consistent allowing me to increase speed during the rally without change in trajectory. Very forgiving blade with no apparent weaknesses. A fast blade with the feeling of an allround blade so it works with both thin and thick rubber/sponge combinations.
Concave grip was a little small for me so I made my own grip for it. But other than grip this is the perfect blade for me and it makes me not want to pick up any of my other blades anymore.

Beautifully Crafted 7 ply wood from Andro. You can feel it is Handmade. The Speed is optimized with Outstanding control. For Spinners this can take you for a ride as you will not want to leave it.
Sometimes I wonder why Andro blades are behind Butterfly blades. When I got my hands on the LIGNA FR OFF I was surprised at how nicely made it is. Handmade as its mentioned. The Speed is way better than other Btfly blades such as Sardius and Marcos. Paired with a Medium hard rubber R47 and it plays along with it smoothly. For TopSpins are amazing as its control level is GREAT. Thanks to Andro!
The Ligna FR has outstanding feeling and control. It's the most controlled OFF blade that i ever tried, definitly way better control then the Viscaria, Garaydia ZLC, Boll Spirit just to mention a few. The shots produced are highly consistent in terms of both pace and ball placement.
The blade produces enough speed to hit outright winners, i'd say it's on pair with the Viscaria at the speed.
The Handle is a bit thin but my hands a re quite big, still i got used to it very fast.
The amount of spin i can produce is just insane! I never made that many straight winners in matches just by spinny balls and serves!
Who ever is searching for a very controlled fast OFF blade should definitly try this one.
Theres a nice review of TableTennisDaily on youtube too.
