Very good board hardness and control, although it was played faster, it seems very good at this price.

A2 is great blade for attack style players. It plays pretty well with short, medium and long pimples. A2 has a lot of control. This is stiff blade (7/10) that feels solid and powerful. This blade has the same power as many carbon blades but without wired feel of carbon. NOTE: If you are planing to use A2 as a blade to loop with, pare it with soft, medium/soft sponge rubber. Tensor rubber ,like Andro Hexer, also performed well with this blade. Warning! Please, do not put hard or extra-hard sponges; you will not be able to control your game due to the excess of speed and lack of spin.

Boa flexibilidade, Ainda prefiro Yinhe Y-15 , Yinhe N9 ou Yinhe MC-2 Controle surpreendente , melhor madeira pra controle 7 Folhas , digna de clone da Xiom Solo Requer borrachas rĂ¡pidas

This one seems to be a Xiom Solo clone - a 7-ply with soft feeling and quite a bit of flex. The feel and control are amazing, looping is so easy and precise coming down from harder and faster 7-ply blades. The expected drawback is less speed; still, on the BH the flex adds a good kick that somewhat compensates for it. As for FH - well, it does force to use a proper stroke with H3)) If high speed is needed, I would advise using fast rubbers on the FH, though. BTW, for SP users - both control and speed are there, got an excellent match with Waran 2.0 on the BH.

Review it!
