In the early 1980’s DONIC developed the Appelgren Allplay blade, an absolute classic and bestseller because of this allround playing characteristics plus good control. DONIC has recently created a comfortable player friendly blade with thin Fineline outer veneers. This new Allround blade has a positive influence on the playing characteristics. As its name suggests, DONIC Epox Control offers outstanding controllability without unpleasant vibration. Used with medium to relatively hard DONIC Formula rubbers, this blade is also highly suitable for attacking players.
Plies : 5
The veneers in the DONIC Epox line are not glued with a liquid glue, but rather with a gluing coat of Epoxy resin. The five veneers with epoxy coating are pressed together and heat is applied for twenty minutes. During this process, the epoxy coating liquefies and glues the veneers together. The middle veneer and two intermediate layers consist of one-piece veneers. Other traditional techniques often use several pieces which are put together. Each pressed one-piece veneer is only used for one blade resulting in a unique blade of high quality.
The unique method of gluing the plies of the Epox blades with Epoxy ensures their rigidity. Depending on the particular ply formation, extra power and speed are achieved. The blade has superior control without unpleasant vibration. The edges close to the handle are carefully rounded off. This is the main reason why each blade of the DONIC Epox line is very easy to handle. Many players hold the handle differently for forehand and backhand shots. Due to the smooth, rounded handle, this presents no problem.
The DONIC Fineline Covering System: An Overall Sure Thing. The DONIC Epox blades have an edge protection made of fine-grained wood and are manufactured using DONIC Fineline technology. This innovative design has 360 degree edge protection, which guarantees that DONIC Epox blades look perfect for a long time. Due to their thin outer veneers, these blades are also very light in weight. The combination of these refined technologies has created a high-quality product: A new blade line constructed with up-to-date techniques and carefully manufactured with a love for detail.
