Bought it for my brother and played with it out of curiosity. I would need a few more sessions to form an opinion. So far it has not impressed me. Too little control and too high speed for a Def blade by my taste.

It is hard and throws the ball too much with some of the OX pips I have tried. Since it is used by one of the best players in Romania, the problem might be with my hand.

I definitely cannot doubt that you shouldn't combine it with very soft or very hard pips-in rubbers. Globe 999 National feels completely dead on it. OX pimples also seem to create problems, unless they are not soft and slow, like Spinlord Zeitgeist.

The look and finishing are very good and the handle is thicker than any I had seen before.

the blade is very stiff, semilarge, big handle, the colour is rather dark. I use FH Donic S3 max and BH Globe 979 0,6 mm, this blade is powerfull and less control for FH but the pimple is working. Push block and chop are very easy and flat and this mouthful, attack is very very easy and dangerous for opponent, no difficulty to attack altough you're newbie in long pimple attack. i think this blade is the best for long pimple

Review it!
