Top notch quality blade as usual coming from Darker blades, It has control and speed at the same time, below fast compared to Sardius, but has way more control. For me, The only thing lacking is a thicker handle. I like thicker handle like that of Sardius but that's just me.

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.
