The blade has pinpoint accuracy. Lower arc than my prior slower, more flexible wood blades. Excellent flared handle. My club's coach loved it. A little on the larger side (perhaps 152x160). Using Addidas TenZone Ultra (FH), and P7 (BH). 87 grams

Best blade I have ever used. Right from the getgo I was able to control the ball with ease. Spin is outrageous. It sacrifices speed for excellent spin and control, however it is still quite a fast offensive blade.

This is a very nice blade, one that I consider worth owning a backup. The control and power of this blade are all very nice. The cheap alternative is the DHS G13, which has less fine finish.

This is the first racket I was truly content with to a Perfect degree! (C-Pen version) First off the dark pinch is perfect and really nice. (In contrast to the very light pinched Silver line Carbon I tried before). Secondly - It has very little vibrations, but the little vibration the blade has is comfortable in my hand and reflects good feedback.
The blades structure itself is: koto - ayous (horizontal) - fiberglass - ayous (horizontal) - koto. Whereby the Fiber glass core is probably the source of the nice dark pinch.
The blade is pretty hard (Not TOO hard, just medium hard!) yet VERY controlled and much more loopable than you'd think (which also means it's great for spin!) with that hardness. I sealed the blade as well, which also give the whole blade a dark nicer colour. It's said sealing the blade differs the hardness, which is probably correct but to a VERY small degree (as long as you keep the layer thin), but I would personally recommend sealing it, as it also makes it more durable!
It has as far as I'm concerned a big sweet spot and its speed is (as mentioned above) perfect with the amount of control it has. To put it this way I highly doubt you will get ANY blade with as much speed and still have the same amount of control. You will have to look for a while. (personally using with it with Donic Bluefire jp 01-turbo and jp-03). This blade is with that said probably optimized for medium to far distance shooting, mainly medium-far. It works good close to the table, but there are probably other blades better for close to the table (but those would obviously be worse in further away from the table!)
I prefer to step a bit back so for me it's perfect!
If I were to point out any cons with this blade, it MIGHT be the durability. BUT ->
I've had it for more than a year now, a couple bumps on the edge due some hard punche that hit the table or table edge, but it's overall a more solid/durable blade than I first felt it would be!
