After using the Viscaria for awhile I feel like this is the Viscaria of 5 Ply wood blades. Looping close and mid distance is great. Has great feel but not a lot of noisy vibrations, just enough to let you feel connected to the contact. The speed is good and plenty for non-pro players away from the table, control is outstanding. This is a fairly famous blade as the Chinese National team used it for a good while back in the day. Pairs great with harder tensors or Chinese rubbers. Approx 85g. 5.8mm. Koto/Spruce/Ayous. Highly recommended for those looking for a great balanced looping 5 Ply blade.

Great blade but needs sealing when new. Outstanding balance with great feeling ST grip. This is a loopers/allround blade for many levels of players. Quality is high, made in Sweden. Attractive cosmetics. Goes well with harder Chinese rubbers. When your done with stiff composite blades and want to feel every shot then this blade is an excellent choice. With Tenergy's or Calibra Tour Series rubbers this blade is a looping machine at all distances. Loopers will enjoy this blade more than hitters but flat kill shots are very good also. Runlox-5 is the same blade but at a higher price as P500. A great all wood looping blade. Used by National Chinese Team members several years ago. Update, outrageous spin with T05FX 2.1. I want to emphasis the feeling and ball touch this blade has. The trade off from composite blades is a smaller sweet spot but more control and feeling. Speed is fast with fast rubbers.

Good looper blade. Same speed like xiom diva, which have more control but less flex.
It's not easy to block, because of the high throw angle. Chinese rubbers work excellent with the p500. Only for both hand loopers recommended.

I used this blade for over 8 years from 2002/3 to 2011, until it almost lose effect, sinceriously loved it. I really suits DHS hurricane rubbers and it gives a lot of spin and power.
