We changed the design, the racket shape and weight of this legendary wood in order to adapt it to the modern offensive game. The rough edges of the racket shape to the handle were smoothened for a nicer feeling in the hand. Hinoki is extremely hard and fast and confers the player an excellent control. After the glue ban, this blade confers enough speed and a powered attacking game. The H-1-9 is available now in all grip shapes.
