Good looping blade, good ontrol, but very overpriced for its characteristics.

Came from Gergely T5000 and transferred my rubber to this paddle. I immediately felt my loops are faster and more accurate. Control is much better. This paddle suits my playing style. Chopper/Blocker on the BH and looper on the forehand. Good for hard smashes.

Last week a friend of mine played a while with my blade, the TB-ZLC (ST). He didnt like it too much. He said: "I recognize its potential, but I dont like the feel, it feels a bit numb." I told him that this blade is like beer, maybe the first time it doesnt taste that good, but if you drink it a couple of times, it will taste better and better :). In short: this is an excellent blade, very fast when you attack and lots of control in the short game and blocking. The Zylon Carbon accounts for high stability and also a great catapult effect, with still a decent dwell time. A great blade for close to the table and mid distance attackers.

Just got it, but it has been amazing. Great speed, but not too fast. Amazing control and flex for a carbon blade. Way expensive, but, hey, it was a Christmas gift. If you're willing to spend this much, go for it. It's a great blade I'm sure I'll have more to say as I use it more :)

Very good blade... fast but controlable with very good touch for player who want to play fast topspins and flat hits.I used to use stiga rosewood V.This has same control with better speed.But if you want play slow spinny topspins ,maybe rosewood is better for this
