The adidas Challenge Speed is a blade for modern top players who demand high levels of power and superb balance at the same time. The Challenge Speed is based on a classic 7-ply construction. The result is a thinner blade which maintains speed. The enhanced feeling and reduced weight are additional advantages of the thinner construction. Although the Challenge Speed is a very powerful blade, its stability and soft feeling on the surface make it very easy to use. If you are an offensive player who wants to add power to the topspin while keeping the natural feeling of an all-wood blade the adidas Challenge Speed should be your first choice!

Bought this blade because limba is my favorite wood and Adidas was getting out T.T. business .Challenge Speed is faster and harder vs Clipper and produce a peculiar sound.I would recommend it to players at least with Intermediate skill level,.Quite fast with good control but requires time to get used to this excellent blade.Got it from Megaspin Chinese made with JTTAA seal excellent build and finish similar to Xiom level.I hope with time and training it will be my main 7 plye all limba blade.

Nice 7 ply blade, speed and control are good up to mid-distance, good for hitters and not suitable for the beginners due to weight but if you paired it with high throw- soft to medium soft tensor rubbers its become fantastic in loops and smash.

Pretty good blade from Adidas. Suited my backhand technique good nad I felt a lot of control from mid distance. I did not like the sound so much but of course that is not the most important part. Sad to hear that Adidas is pulling out from Table Tennis and that their products won't be availibly after the year.

The classic 7 ply wood(Limba-Ayous-Ayous-Ayous..).Blade has decent speed balance with decent weight.The handle is big not wide which I liked (ST).Compare with Clipper wood.In term of Speed: ACS<=SCW Control: ACS>=SCW (May be its lighter) Feel: Similar (Stiff & Medium soft)
