5-Ply Blade Composition
HINOKI OUTER VENEERS
HINOKI, a highly sought-after premium Japanese wood, is often recognized by its rich, straight grain. This wood is characteristically soft with a bit of bounce and creates a one-of-a-kind touch that increases dwell-time for extra spin and control. In the JOOLA Xylo 5, the HINOKI veneers were “toasted” using an innovative heating technique to increase the blade’s speed by enhancing the wood’s stiffness.
AYOUS INNER LAYER
Native to Africa, AYOUS perfectly offsets the weight of the Hinoki outer veneers with its lightness and has great strength-to-weight ratio. Due to the wood’s naturally larger pores, it maintains elastic characteristics that make it ideal for close-to-the-table play.
Durable and hard, yet still lightweight, KIRI is utilized as the core veneer and is the key to maintaining the blade’s overall balance. This stiffer wood reduces vibration and is great for taking those direct shots.
