Flexible blade but medium hardness. Gives a versatile offensive blade. I find it difficult to understand how people can rate this blade as ALL+... It seems at least OFF- to me, mostly suited to close-from-table player who occasionnally play a bit further. But it's no ALL+ blade for sure. Good control in short game, hard enough to hit flat, but yet flexible, offering good topspin opportunities. My forehand topspins seem more difficult than with the Waldner Senso v2, but are spinnier. Also, this blade has quite a high throw.
