|The Kiso Hinoki V marks the rebirth of Butterfly Classic Hinoki shakehands series of blades. Hinoki wood is a light dense wood that has a soft feel to it. Blades made of Hinoki are excellent for all-round attacking play with heavy topspins produced with maximum control or defensive or all around play like hard bat competition. Kiso Hinoki is the highest grade of this wood featuring a tight grain pattern that can only be found in wood grown at altitude in certain mountain ranges in Japan. The classic Hinoki Blade is back and playing better than ever.
