Good Finish and Super Play with this blade you can do anything. Price is also reasonable.
Nice blade. Mine is 90gr. FH Rasanter R42, BH R37. Chop is easy and block is automatic. Nice counter hit top spin. Speed just above averange but with very good control.
Plies: hinoki 0.7mm - zlc 0.25mm - ayous 0.7mm - kiri 3.4mm.
What Viscaria is for Butterfly, Treiber Z is for Andro. This Blade has been around for a while and it is undoubtedly Powerful as per my game for strong spin strokes on the forehand and backhand spin. this blade is the most balanced in terms of Versatility. The Hinoki Grains are like any other. Recommended for those who want a fine class blade.
This a very affordable blade for those interested in trying ZLC, but turned off by the high price. The Treiber Z's playing characteristics are very similar to that of the Z. Jike ZLC. The Andro blade is one gear slower, which is a blessing for me. Pushes and serves are very controllable with this blade. Looping is nice, especially away from the table. Blocking took a little getting used to, as the hinoki top ply absorbs a lot of the speed. That and I am used to playing with a more flexible blade that needed a soft grip to keep a good block on the table. Treiber Z didn't warrant such a soft grip, but a soft grip when pushing can yield some double and triple bounces.
The touch of Perfection! Masterpiece from a Andro! You can feel the power right from the first hit itself. And boy what a spin it can generate.
I have tried many blades before, but ultimately there are only 2 that felt truly special to me.
The first was Butterfly Innerforce ZLC and this Andro gem is the second one.
I guess it depends on your personal preference (hinoki or limba) when it comes to the feel of the blade, but when it comes to the speed/control ratio there can only be one choice: Andro Treiber Z.
Tried many blades , and I genuinely can't find a better one.Hard to describe it in just few words ... simply amazing. Great feeling and control, fast , very well balanced,fantastic blade
I purchased the Andro Trieber Z based on all of these amazing reviews and it was a bust. Perhaps its a better blade for advanced players or maybe I just got a bad blade. I am an intermediate level player so my technique is not perfect and this blade is not forgiving at all. It has a very small sweet spot and if you do not connect in the sweet spot it is a dead ball yet if the ball does connect in the sweet spot it will have uncontrollable catapult effect and go off the table. I tried a variety of rubbers on this blade soft and hard and none of them made this blade more controllable.
Work of art.Has HINOKI+ZLC=great composition.I use it with Rasant(red),Rasant Beat(black).Love the combo.Its fast but I don't think it is super fast ,when you want to play touch shots,it is very controllable,once I hit hard the speed is astonishing.The control is out of this world.I cant imagine how they designed such a blade.Super accurate,great spin on my shots,looping is great,kills are great,sidespin shots are always monstrous and thus missed by opponent with an embarrassing smile.
Update(8 March,2018)-feels even more amazing now as I have used many blades.Huge sweet spot.Feel of blade is good but less feel than a wooden acoustic....no bad vibrations at all.Handle is great,sweaty plams?no problem....it doesn't slip.Throw angle low,soft feel,high control.Great for looping +magical power away from table.Blocking =nothing special...(..Nittaku acoustic is awesome in blocking).Rubbers still working after 1+ years.
I really like this blade. You can do all the tricks. Everything you do is easy with this blade. Topspin, sidespin, lifting backspin, looping, counter topspin and looping. Pushing, chopping, flat hitting.. you name it. Fantastic!
Super solid blade, no vibrations but with awesome feel/touch and deep sound the hinoki / fiber (or hinoki /carbon) combo produces. It has medium - low throw, it's very consistent and controllable with sufficient speed for counter hits and even passive shots away from the table. It's faster than other OFF+ rated blades I've used, although it's rated OFF.
Handle is a bit thinner than the other Andro blade I have which is perfect., but still ok, there are smaller ones in other blades.
I ve owned and played with several blades till now. It took five minutes of ball exchange with my teammate's treiber z blade to realize there is something unique to it and got myself one right away. Treiber z is very fast (off towards off+) yet not at all uncontrollable. Services, receives, short play, pushes, blocks, smashes, topspins, loops you name it, can all be performed with a vast amount of control. Careful, beginners will find it too fast. One must have some experience to take advantage of its values. Mine weights 87 gr and is a bit head heavy. Sweet spot is huge it is very stable and has a crisp feel. Throw angle is quite low so has to be paired with rubbers that have above medium throw to play with comfort over the net. Medium distance game is effortless as long as you adjust the angles. Dwell time is minimum at flat contacts (blocks, drives and smashes) so even passive shots put pressure on your opponent, but is prolonged during angle shots which helps to control and spin creation. I suggest use of medium to soft rubbers to help short dwell and add even more control. Andro has done a good job combining hinoki outer plies with the "artificial fiber" underneath which is dark blue and does not resemble zylon that is supposed to have a gold color. Overall, the best offensive blade I ve ever played, with an astonishing speed/control ratio.
I am fascinated by the truly unique ratio speed/control (9.2/9.6). It's relatively heavier blade, but I still love it. With the rubbers Yasaka Rising Dragon, it's a real katana.
Mine is a very comfortable anatomic handle with good quality and weighs 90g & measured 6.8mm thick. It's one of the thickest 7-ply composite blades excluding balsa cores. Has a thin top layer of kiso hinoki. Manufacturer did not specify exactly what the "Z fiber" is. Some said it's zylon, but the feeling I get is more like fiberglass. It has a very mild but crispy feel with very little vibration. I could play for hours without feeling tired. I have FH Nittaku S1(2.0B) + BH MarkV HPS (2.0R)=178.5g. Well matching rubber combo. Had Razka 7 on backhand was heavier, stiffer & didn't play as well but changed to Mark V HPS and like it much better. It's pretty fast but not as fast as Strato which is not a bad thing. Strato also produces more spin and loops better. However, this blade has superior control especially in short game(comparing to similar speed blades), push/chop, short serves, blocking & flat hitting. The sweetspot is huge and produces even return when hitting off center which makes blocking smashes really awesome. You can play both defensively or offensively. This is a blade that can do all tricks. I've been using it for >a month & I find my game is better using this blade.
Here is my rating:
Speed=9.4. Control=9.5. Sweetspot=huge. Stiffness=8(thick 7 ply). Hardness=5. Feel=great(very mild but clear). Balance=average. Spin=8.5. Short Game=very good. Mid game=very good. Flicks=easy. Push/Chop=excellent. Loop=good. Flat hit/Block/Punch=excellent. Serves=good. Throw=med low. Dwell=avg. Consistency=10. Overall=9.6
Very nice, very consistent OFF blade. Not extremely fast, but very good and solid on any offensive strokes. it's quite thick therefore - perfect in blocking. I've rated it high in 'control' because it is very predictable and gives you a good feedback. Currently my competition's blade with Rasant Grip rubbers (2.1mm FH and 1.9mm BH)
A perfect combination of speed and control. The longer you train the better it feels
