Newly developed racket handle with a particularly direct and precise ball feedback. The handle is very comfortable and soft in the hand and can be turned easily.
The transition between handle and blade forms a rounded T-piece for maximum comfort. Like all SOULSPIN handles it is completely freeof sharp and disturbing edges.

You can combine this handle with all of our 10 wood types

 

Handle length: ca. 103mm

Width: ca. 28mm

Blade Size: 150 x 156 mm

All our blades are made by hand so small differences in measurements are normal.

Availabe in 4 colors.

 

 

Description

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT NEW ERA HANDLES?

THE STRUCTURE

In contrast to standard handles, our NEW ERA handles consist of differently shaped discs that are glued together vertically to form a whole piece.

VERY PRECISE FEELING

Transmission of impulses between disks can well be compared with a sphere-pendulum. If the ball hits the blade, the impulse ‘jumps’ from disc to disc. The result of this direct impulse transmission is an extremely intense feeling of the ball, which extends through the complete grip to the end of the handle.

“WITH A NORMAL HANDLE, THE IMPULSE TOWARDS THE HANDLES END IS SLIGHTLY ATTENUATED. HOWEVER, THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE A DISADVANTAGE.
ON THE CONTRARY, EACH PLAYER HAS TO FIND OUT FOR HIMSELF WHAT SUITS HIM BETTER:
A VERY DIRECT TRANSMISSION OF THE BALL OR A SLIGHTLY WEAKER BUT CALMER BALL FEEDBACK.

    Purely by chance I came across the new blade from Soulspin. I have been playing a blade from this company for several years (first Basalt, now Carbon) and am very satisfied with it. However, I found it very interesting to test the new grip, since I have been playing the same blade with a normal grip for a while. After 2 days I had the blade and first glued on my current VH rubber (XIOM). A first test with a ball was already very informative. Despite the same blade, you get a “different” feedback – I had not expected in this clarity! In the game, the whole thing relativizes a little. I already have the impression that the feedback is “better” for me personally, especially in passive play. In addition, there is the seamless transition from the handle to the pad (T-piece see pictures). What I also noticed – especially with sweaty hands, the grip is ideal and slips much less than the normal grip. In any case, a clear recommendation to test the blade. Everyone must judge for themselves whether this strong feedback pleases. If you already have a very good wood, then it is difficult for me to make a decision whether the positive points justify a new purchase.

    p.s. The care with which the blades are built is exemplary!

    I really liked the new handle. Previously, I often had the problem that the racket slipped a little out of my hand when playing. That is not the case here at all. The grip is secure and good in the hand. In addition, I notice a great ball feedback when playing. The processing is – as always with Soulspin – super. Really super!

      Hello Henrik,
      thank you for the nice feedback! That makes us happy to hear! 🙂
      At first moment you don’t believe that the playing feeling changes so much by the grip – that’s why we are even more pleased that we get so many positive feedbacks about the NEW ERA grips, which confirm our opinion.

    I first come across Soulspin blades under the Gewo brand owning both of their high end blades the Gewo Konigsklasse Karbon Sieben and the Gewo Konigsklasse OFF Funf. I did some research and realized that Nittaku also has a couple of all wood blades built by Soulspin what I was eager to try but I decided to contact Soulspin and find my ideal custom blade. I ordered seven different blades with different compositions mostly all wood construction. First I was sceptic about the new era handle but I’m so glad I tried it. The handle is the most comfortable I ever played with, the ribbed area is offering a firm hold and is not slippery if you have sweaty hands. Finally I can give up my grip tape! The weight increase is minimal and being in the handle it will balance out nicely if you use heavier rubbers. I tried both the conic and the straight version but my sweet spot is somewhere in between so I ended up sanding down the concave handle a bit. The quality of the wood layers is the highest so the price is well justified. Another area where the ew era handle shines is the feel. I felt improvement in the spin and pace variations of my shots. Thank you Soulspin for elevating my game! You just saved me a lot of money giving me a chance to pick and fine tune my blade to the smallest details.
