GAMBLER BALSA KNIGHT PENHOLD is a high power TWO SPEED attacking/defending blade utilizing the benefits of high-grade carbon construction. Made to the most exacting standards, Balsa Knight features an attacking side utilizing 60K Micro Mesh Graphite, and a backhand using a wood combination geared toward control (scroll to image above for wood and carbon layout). All Balsa Knight blades come with a hand lacquer finish (no need to seal the blade), 3 high quality lens inlays, and a manufacturer backed guaranteed weight range (the only kind in the industry). Gambler is able to achieve precision weight range by using a proprietary grain density testing method and exacting moisture content regulation. Not your grandpa’s balsa blade! This is NOT your typical oversized balsa fly swatter; Gambler Balsa Knight has a normal head shape and generates real power and spin. (Some images show the flared version of this blade - this is to show the blade itself, however this product is the PENHOLD or CHINESE HOLD STYLE version of the blade!)
*BALSA KNIGHT was very loosely based on a discontinued balsa core blade I had seen at the first Gambler Competitor Open. I have not seen anything else currently on the market that draws a comparison.
