Friendship marked it as defensive blade but IMO it is more like an ALL to ALL+. This balde is just an average blade with no other special qualities. Good control, speed is average but can be high if you hit or strike hard. Recommended to beginners and intermediate players.

Very good quality blade. It's def class, different from transformer edition. I play it with But Tackiness Chop and FriendShip 802-40, attack is very good for def blade, because blade is hard and not stiff. Defence isn't so good, but normal.

Review it!
