Same structure as Stiga CL blade. A table tennis blade especially good for loop-drive. With proper rubber attached, it can easily provide low arc and strong spin. It is not good for hit-to-kill, but rather provide better control with loop-drive.

L-5 is thinner version of Stiga Clipper Wood, that is slower thus offering more control and spin. It flexes more than Clipper when power looping. I still think Stiga Clipper has slightly better touch and feel than L-5. But, it should not stop you from trying this blade. L-5 has very good touch too, and with practice you will not feel that much difference between two. My blade is 5.7mm thick and weights 80g. Be aware for occasional variations when buying this blade. I bought two blades and one was 80g and the second one was 99g. which plays different to the lighter version; 99g has more power and speed and very good for smashes, blocks are much more consistent, but at the same time it's more difficult to generate the same amount of spin like with the 80g. version, because thick blade is stiffer. Overall, it is definitely worth the money.

This is a good blade.Very good for control and looping. The speed is fast and power is enough when in mid/far distance. The blade has enlarge sense of resiliency with very good control.
