TIBHAR SAMSONOV STRATUS CARBON. A new generation of Kevlar Carbon was combined with high-quality wood types to produce the needed hardness and stability for confident offensive play. Players everywhere had to change their blade type to counter the loss of catapult when speed glue was banned. So in response Tibhar in collaboration with Samsonov developed this new blade. It concentrates on the important features required for high performance play; forceful power, responsiveness for spinning and great playing awareness.
