Standard Spec & Innovative Gripping Point Cut
TRiNiDAD player Hiroaki Uehara’s signature model.
This barrel has a standard spec and shape with a weight of 18.5 g, length of 41.0 mm, and max diameter of 7.6 mm, yet has a characteristic cut on the gripping point.
Trapezoid delta cut is used as main cut on the gripping point, since grip would be too strong with ring cut. Dot cut is put there to add tiny corners, so that the grip gives the same power to all directions on the barrel, providing an easy release.
Moreover, the cut has three lines and grooves with a wide width, so the cut will be felt clearly with the fingers when gripping the barrel, meaning you will realize if you grip the wrong point. The ring cuts on the front and back of the main cut assist you to make a stable release.
By having the balance point slightly to the rear, it can be thrown just according to the swing of your arm. As a result, it will be easier to throw the barrel as imagined. This barrel is also recommended for those that wish to grip the rear area of a barrel.
