A very fast blade. You have to play always with it to get used in controlling this. If you dont, your balls will always go long. Not recommended for beginners.

A fast dependable blade. More than compensated for my late strokes. I had to seal the surface with a very thin layer of lacquer as the wood seemed vulnerable to splintering. My dad got this for me on my 10th birthday. We paired this with 2 light and soft Yasaka rubbers (the XS and the 30 deg.) and it loop drives real good.

good performance blade, very fast and easy to control... this is the blade I'm currently using upon switching from my bty gergely and old bty schlager carbon. the way i see it its faster than gergely and has better control. the only downside on this is the quality, it splinters easily... all u need is just if to just take good care of it... :))

This is a lot similar to the feel of btfly sardius but at a fraction of a cost. This is not exactly a clone of sardius but i might say that they share 99.9 percent of their DNA>) A little bit higher than humans vs. chimps. They weigh almost the same, they look identical in many ways and they even sound the same. although of course, the craftsmanship of the sardius is more refined. This is a very powerful blade which is hard to tame at first. But as they say, every horse can be broken. Patience, persistence and time should work in perfect synergy to unleash its potentials.
