My new weapon of choice!!! Sadly discontinued. Coming from Carbon-Balsa, I was looking for a light setup. After a few reading I came to this one. It has everything I was looking for: Powerful. Despite the weight (71 gr for my bat) It's really fast, and a very linear feeling. You touch slow, it's slow, you hit hard, it's FAST!!! Sweetspot. I've never had a blade with a sweetspot so huge! No week point, you can miss the center, it's almost the same. Spin. Actually, I never really thought that the blade could help with that... Boy, I was so wrong! With the same rubber, my topspin are much more efficient and spinny! Quality. Perfect, beautiful piece of wood!

This blade has incredible touch for a carbon blade, plenty of pop away from the table, and is just an all-round delight to play with. For those seeking a light blade that has none of the drawbacks of balsa and works with all conceivable rubbers i can't recommend this beauty highly enough.
