Andro Kinetic Supreme OFF- Kiso Hinoki Zylon is an excellent blade.
It has 7 layers Hinoki-ZLC-Ayous-Kiri-Ayous-ZLC-Hinoki.
The blade thickness is 7.0mm.
It is stiff blade, so do not expect much vibration.
Control of this bade is just amazing and sweat spot is huge.
It pares well with both EURO and CHINA rubbers.
Overall, great control blade for tactical player, that has characteristics of ALL blade near table, and OFF blade when played away from the table.
I highly recommend this blade.

first thing to say about this blade is feeling..... feeling is fantastic!
speedy fast, yet controllable!
both fl and st handles are very comfortable. the finish on the blade is second to none. arc/throw angle is high and long
blocking is nice and crisp and the way how the ball bites into the blade is very consistent and predictable

So, it is really nice wood, offers less speed then off blades but more control. However, I cannot say I liked it, because of screwed balance. The blade is a little bit longer and the handle is little bit shorter but in total their length is the same like other kinetic andro blades. However, this "new balance" increased the total weight of the blade because more rubber remains on the blade when cut. So, if one gets used to this "new balance" it may be a great blade. I personally did not have troubles behind the table but those flips and loops on the table become more difficult due to change in balance.
