Bought this blade on a whim as I normally use carbon blades but wanted to give an all blade a try. The craftsmanship is outstanding! I own butterfly primorac off, joola aruna, joola tpe perform and yasaka Sweden extra and this is better than all of them for comfort in the hand. The handle size is perfect and those at my club that have tried it agree against butterfly, donic, sriga, andro, Xiom blades and it's just so comfortable.
I put stiga mendo on the backhand and joola rhyzm p on the forehand and was amazed. It's about the same speed as the Joola Aruna I have with similar rubbers but more control. The sweet spot isn't as large but better than my yasaka Sweden extra. Fast backhand flicks and drives are a doddle and my usual training partners said there was a noticeable difference in the quality of.my placements with it but no loss in speed. Forehand loops were easy bit as I'm use to harder blades it did take some time getting use to it and my fast drives and smashes were more difficult to execute but loops were a dream.
An excellent and sadly discontinued blade that for all wood blade lovers should be worth a try.
