Very well balanced blade with good wheight distribution throughout the entire blade, including the handles which are big and not too short.
The straight handle is too fat for smaller hands, but can be fixed with a file or even rough sandpaper.

The C100 was designed for players who are very spin-oriented and are more conscious on control rather than speed. I opted to use the Adidas Syntec regular and alternate it with a Dawei 388A Sprungfeder rubber and also a Double fish 1615 rubbers. this is a control set up and an all around set up. I would rate the speed of this blade in between Off- to Off. A faster Offensive classic with a Koto toplayer or an Avalox p500 that is faster and has a more solid feel. Looping was great especially with a chinese rubber since I have a chinese stroke. Looping sidespin and taking the ball late produces a very nice arc on both strokes. The blade has flex but has minimal vibration. The blade is balanced and has a medium sweet spot area. The blade head is wider than the current fibertec series blade or the challenge series blade by a few mm. I opted to use the Double Fish 1615 since I was corect on my assumption that this will be a good blade for long pips especially for pip hitters and attackers. I tried chopping with it but its too fast for chopping. Blocking with the LP wasnt very hard and hitting knuckle balls were easy.
I would recommend medium-soft and medium to hard rubbers for this blade since its a bit flexy and the top layer koto isnt stiff. The following rubbers are greatly recommended:
1. Adidas Syntec Fast
2. Adidas Tenzone
3. Adidas P5 and P7
