I bought this because of the record 9.5 overall score but did not believe it until I tried it. But yes better for my game than a now retired DHS PG7. The V6 is carbon so feedback not like an all wood blade. With fast rubbers it will play like an off- but with a great touch. I therefore recommend the V6 with fast rubbers to match the PG7 or N9. I seem to play better with an HRT Clipper or pg7 according to my team mates they are faster but very good blade too. If you can use skill and win by not hitting but superior placement short game then try the V6. It is a very good training for that sort of game.

Suprisinglly overall nice blade, underestimated cost (appr.30$)!! Little bit slower and softer than TBS, but controlible and amasingly precise in short and midle distance game in all kind of shots.In the comparison with TBS it has almost equal characteristics, just only need some sand paper work to finish outlook design.All in all perfect blade substitute to TBS.

One of the best OFF- blades (and very cheap, too). If you can find one that suits your weight requirements, buy it. Weight usually varies from 86 to 98 g which is a rather wide range. Very good control and softness provide great short game, placement shots etc. With the right rubbers (and it can play with almost all of them) it blocks and loops very well. An excellent choice for a budget-minded allround player or for an OFF- attacker.

729 V-6 Chinese penhold weighed in at 80g, 81g after two light coats of polyurethane varnish. Coming from an old DHS G1835 blade + DHS H3 Neo, my new 729 V-6 blade + DHS H3 Neo felt noticeably slower. Sweet spot was smaller, with very noticeable vibration. Throw angle also too low with light shots. Maybe I still need to adjust to the new blade, or maybe break in the new H3 Neo rubber.

Good carbon blade. Medium high throw arc. I rated speed with 8,7 ( off- like PG7). Produces average spin because of it's stiffness (PG7 is better). Very controllable ( 9,2).Does everything well. Definitely worth a try for the price.

Review it!
