The blade has a soft touch with a crisp feeling. Little vibrations but not unpleasant. It is very controllable fast. Imo the Wanokiwami is an easy play blade. And crazy spin trajectory is absolutely right. Linear speed. Medium throw. Works good with medium hard to hard rubbers.
One of the best Andro blades.

easily the best blade for control and crazy spin trajectory.

I'm an intermediate level player. I have achieved results with this blade. I have been able to make more consistent rallies in both attack and defense. Good speed. Excellent control. Works well either near or half distance.

Ignore comments from user anandkeshav. It is absolutely not as slow as that user indicated, and it's worth noting they have reviewed no other items so their opinion should be taken with a grain of salt. The blade is on the fast side of OFF-, or may be seen by some as OFF, depending on what you're comparing it to. It's speed is similar to the TSPW or Nittaku S-5, around '9' - I only rated it 10 in the stats so the overall rating rose from 8.7, which I believe is too slow. Throw angle and dwell make for a great looping blade, with a soft balsa feel and sound. Although it sounds like balsa with rubbers glued on and hitting balls, the middle ply is not balsa. It has a somewhat high pitch when bouncing ball directly onto the naked blade, which indicates it's relatively fast speed for a 5 ply wood. Has plenty of power available even at distance and loops backspin balls well. I agree with ttandi, the blade is finished very well, with a very comfortable handle and overall feel.
