Last Updated: 2012-08-22
IBB stands for "ideal best balance" and refers to a particualr type of Mengane which has been specially balanced to give the best feel. Essentially the center of balance for an IBB Mengane is set 7 mm further back than the center of balance on a standard Mengane., making the whole thing lighter. Further, all IBB Mengane features a Monomi(wider bar for viewing through) which is 1 mm wider than on a standard Mengane.
