Wonderful blade. Mine is 93 gr. FH DHS H8 and BH Rasant Beat. Topspin vs backspin on FH, Block and punch with BH quite easy. Speed/control ratio is extremely high. Can not miss any shot :)

Blade Size: 157x150mm. It is heavy, hard and stiff with no flex or vibration making blocking and chopping easy but on the other hand the dwell time is low and the feel of the ball is not great. Tensor/springy rubbers make the feeling worse and the game close to the net difficult. I use hard, heavy, tacky, Chinese rubbers because they increase the feel, control and they force me to improve my technique. Chinese rubbers disrupt the weight balance (becomes head heavy). It feels more balanced when you put Butterfly rubbers on it but is still heavy. Use Yasaka rubbers (Rakza 7 or Mark V HPS) if you want to keep the racket a bit lighter. Timo Boll Alc has more weight in the handle than the Spirit so head heaviness is less of an issue. Spirit is fast even far away from the table, if you have the right technique and physical strength. The flared handle is a bit slim and slippery on the upper part. I have changed rubbers 4-5 times and still no sign of splinters. Solid craftsmanship that can sustain a lot of hardship during training. With slow rubbers it behaves like a perfect all-round blade. With tensor rubbers it can be crazy fast. I would start with hard, slow, easy to control rubbers (like Mercury II) and, if needed, move to faster ones. Only suitable for players with good technique. Somewhat overrated and definitely overpriced. There are equally good Butterfly blades, like Petr Korbel and the Primorac, or Stiga blades, like Stiga Infinity VPS, at a 3rd of its price

TBS w/ TO5....I think it's heavy. It's okay when only practicing but in a real match, it's not. Great touch but too slow for heavy blade.

the one I like most about this blade, it has a stunning backhand flick effect besides having good control. To make great spin is very easy
