The KORBEL SK7 is an attacking blade that offers a relatively soft and controlled feeling even at high speed. All wood 7-ply blade, heavy, but the weight is concentrated in the handle, well balanced. It is the ideal answer for playing without the need to use refresh gluing.

Feel: Medium

Korbel SK7 is a 7-ply wooden blade with no carbon ,a bit on the heavy side for some players (mine is 98gr). Its weight however, is distributed in such a way that feels very balanced and manageable during play. Although Butterfly characterizes as "stiff", actually it's medium stiff that suits a variety of players even those that use often topspin forehand loops. One of its greatest advantages, is that it has no vibration at all. It offers amazing control in blocks,drives, even in backhand chops. It's a really versatile blade, most suitable for all around to offensive players.

Very nice blade. Little faster than Korbel but has a soft feel, which is perfect for my liking. Very good spin from my setup (2x T05) and still enough rigidity for hitting high balls consistently. I think this is the perfect wood blade but it may be too heavy for some. Mine is 95 grams but for me it is no trouble. It is soft, but fast, and has good feeling and enough rigidity to hit balls.

Fast blade, faster than the Petr Korbel blade. It's quite soft and is well suited for versatile attacking play.

I got the latest version of this blade.Now known as SK7 Classic with Korbel removed.Basically is very same blade.Classic 7 plye Limba outer.It is a good offensive all wood like so many others in similar construction.Like so many others it will always be compared to Clipper.It is good but you feel a little bit vibrations and also a bit hollow.A good Clipper alternative,costing about US$20 more vs a Stiga Clipper

My first professional blade, I am not a professional but I have been training for 7 years, I used this paddle for 5 or 6 years and recently changed to a Stiga ALL Evolution (and then, back to Korbel SK7), there I could understand why it is so important to feel the ball. The Korbel Sk7 does not allow me to feel the ball because it does not vibrate, but beyond that - which I consider to be a defect - it is very pleasant to play with it, it gives me good speed and with Hurricane 3 NEO rubbers all my balls enter the table with great spin.
