SS/Ton is the preferred choice of many international professionals. What you get from SS is a high quality piece of willow with nice grains and fantastic pressing with a great finish.
Handle: Round 12 piece treble spring cane handle.
Middle Posistion: Mid to Low middle for the front foot player but still forgiving enough for back foot shots, More for all round stroke play.
Profile: The profile shape is in the duckbill mold but more of a players style with the duckbill slightly more exaggerated as the players middle it more often so they can afford to lose power elsewhere but gain power in the middle with the spine flattening out as it reaches the toe which allows for more even weight distribution and giving it a great pick and feel in the hand and also giving it a quiet prominent sweet spot which means more power through the stroke.
Thickness: The edges you will get on these are around 36m - 40mm with around about a 60mm spine.
Concaving: Little to no concaving making for a more forgiving sweet spot.
Toe: Square shaped toe for a more comfortable feel in stance
Face: Usually comes with around 9+ grains
Willow : English Willow
