Fine blade from BTY. Nice feeling FL grip. Medium sweet spot. With T05 provided more than enough speed and spin to gain the point. This blade felt like a precision instrument. A bit head heavy with Tenergy. Great for looping at any distance. BTY took great care in selecting extra high grade woods in this model. A bit expensive for an all wood blade but you will love this model unless you are a power crazy blast everything kind of player. Sanding the edges and sealing the face will give this beauty a long life. No harsh vibration but enough vibration to transmit strength of shot. Works great with Tenergy, Mark V HPS, Hurricaine III, Calibra LT.

Great blade for precision play. Loops, smashes and drives are good and blocking is great. I play it with JOOLA Maxxx 500 on both sides. Very good. I can only recommend it to advanced players.
Joola MAXXX 500 was too hard for this blade and I switched to Bluefire JP1 and M3, then changed the M3 to Tibhar MX-P.
This is a modern type loopng blade, quite stiff and the koto outer wood ply is a bit hard for me, but I can get used to it. This blade needs fast and short moves to generate agressive and fast loops, and the loops become quite effective. Old style big arm swing loops are possible too but this blade does not like that, there isn't that much dwell time for that type of stroke. If you love the tempo and the characteristics but want a little softer touch try Tibhar RedCypress.

I have to disagree with the comment of not a loopers blade. I agree with the last comment Dec 31st. This blade has great control and a ton of dwell time. I use T25FX on FH and T64 on backhand and have been using this blade for 6 months, just got my second one last month.
This blade is a great loopers blade and has a lot of touch. I would say its slower than Timo ALC by more that .1 ( as seen on Butterfly Catalog) still plenty fast.
Everyone at the club has hit with it and likes it. Most play with carbon though. Its a players racket

Good blade, feels a bit too soft but is really good for controlled looping; overall providing an exellent attacking game.
