Reviews of Nittaku Acoustic (3)
I owe several blades and played with Petr Korbel, Andro Treiber Q, Nittaku Acoustic, some cheap ALL blades.
I must say, that this blade is amazingly crafted: the blade is smooth, the handle is smooth and everything seems to be very top notch.
The ST handle is a bit thin, comparing to Treiber Q or Korbel.
I played with this blade using Yasaka Rakza 7 rubbers, Hurricane 3 and Friendship GeoSpin Tacky rubbers and must say, that Chinese rubbers with the plastic 40+ ball are just slow. Yes, I know if I produce a proper 'chinese' stroke then it works mostly fine, but that requires really good footwork. 2 layers of boosters applied is much better, but I think it's not worth a hassle boosting these days, unfortunately. BUT AMAZING short game, really MUCH better than any EU rubber I've tried.
In comparison, Rakza 7 (2.0) worked really well on both FH and BH, plenty of control doing top spins, blocks, short play is ok. Also, the speed is quite amazing if the technique is good even despite that it is a 5 ply composition.
As everyone mentions, the sound is amazing as well.
So, if anyone is looking to train hard and progress from ground zero, I would suggest any ALL, ALL+ blade (can use cheap chinese rubber like 729 FX to set a proper stroke techniques) -> Nittaku Acoustic -> Any blade with an ALC, like ZJK ALC or TB ALC/Viscaria.
edit 2019: after 1 year of playing this blade I can safely say that it has *NOT* enough power for todays plastic ball. I bought Nittaku Ludeack and it's almost the same in the control department, but the blocking is MUCH better.
I paired with soft, medium/soft rubbers and it was terrible for looping backspin balls, took effort to get them over the net relative to my Tibhar SPW, JRE and other blades. Put medium hard rubbers on it, with high throw angle, and I'm sure you'll have a better experience than I did. In fact, I'm quite certain if medium to medium hard (with high throw) rubbers are glued on, then it would justify all the fan fair. Otherwise, see my ratings for the numbers.
