Good control. Not as fast as you think, but plenty fast with the right rubber. Light. This is a high quality blade. I use a fast rubber on the BH (non-carbon) side and a medium rubber on the carbon FH side and it works well. Head is minimally oversized, but bigger than some other standard blades I have.

The FH (with a layer of carbon) seems to be OK, loops on the BH requires a lot more effort. I have had this blade for 2 months. I want more speed and have just bought another Chinese cheap blade with 2 layers of titanium

I have recently upgraded to this blade and i love it! It is very light but still gives great power. I am currently playing with Gambler Outlaw on my FH and Gambler Reflectoid on my BH. The carbon layer on the FH side adds to the speed of the Outlaw, but does not speed up the slow Reflectoid BH rubber. Great blade!

not as fast as i thought it would be and that's coming from a def player. it also had rubbish control on both off and def strokes. looks good though. also the bit from the handle fell out the second time i used it.

This blade is fast and light. I have a very fast hitting game on my forehand and long pip chopping on my backhand. I am currently using Gambler Outlaw 2.2mm on FH and Milky Way 955 LP OX on my BH. Blade is still a little too fast for the backhand side, but at the sacrifice for control. My backhand chops have a fairly high degree of inconsistency and I don't think it is all me. Forehand side is amazing for fast flat hitting, loop driving and pushing. It really has that sweet spot all around. Even out of position at least 60% of my hits make it. My game has really improved after I switched my FH rubber from Friendship 729 God Favored to the Gambler Outlaw.
