I have bought this blade hoping for a light looping blade with control. And i got that at 68 grams. It has very good dwell which helps you a lot on loops. The facts that is flexy helps too. Blocks are good, but you have to do active blocks to get them unconfortable for the oponent.
It has several speeds and pushing is nice and stays low. Little vibration, but decent feedback.
Unfortunatelly the consistency is crap when pushing, blocking, flipping. Sometimes i get a weird vibration and the ball simply dies on the paddle. This usually happens when you make contact closer to the tip, which is a big minus on flips and pushes. I'm still using the blade only because i haven't found any better. Because of poor consistency i recomend trying other products from butterfly, maybe those are better built.

Pencarian blade idamanku akhirnya berhenti di sini. Blade BCX5 ini punya semua yg saya butuhkan !
Sangat nyaman untuk serang ataupun bertahan. Apalagi dengan berat yg termasuk ringan, sangat ideal untuk kelincahan reflek dan menghemat stamina.

Very thick (7mm), stiff and soft blade. For a such thick and stiff blade it has good dwell. It's a light blade (mine is 80g). The structure of plies is basswood-carbon-balsa-carbon-basswood. It's faster than Friendship/729 V-6 with less control and less dwell. I have played 2 seasons of SOKAZ league with it, but then I found that there is better blades for loopers with more dwell time (e.g. Friendship/729 V-6). I think it's better for pips-out (short pips) attackers on BH side than for 2 side loopers.

EXCELLENT BLADES FOR LOOP, BLOCKING AND PUSH WITH BARACUDA & FRIENDSHIP 08.
NEED TO PLAY FROM SLIGHTLY AWAY FROM TABLE. FEEL THE EXCELLENT TOUCH WHILE RETIVING BALL CONSISTENTLY.
