I m using this blade with Nittaku Fastarc G-1 on FH and tibhar 5Q+ (power update) on BH.... And this blade is truly bringing out great spin/speed potential of both these rubbers.... It is fast but has excellent control in blocks, pushes.... Appropriate amount of flexibility and stiffness makes strokes over the table and away easy to execute.... Power is unleashed when you hit hard .... You can enjoy touch play and pushes at extreme angles..... Excellent for looping/driving .... I m even able to hit good B/H topspins/counter from mid/far..... Moreover, it has a thin handle that very well suits my small palm size Compared to my previous choice (carbonado 190), this blade is not overly stiff, which helps in over the table B/H loops/flicks, but stiff enough for good blocking..... Also, it is not a low throw blde unlike carbonado 190, so ball clears the net safely The carbon layer in the blade is not close to the surface, and hence control in soft touches, blocks, pushes is always maintained..... power is unleashed when you drive through the ball Highly recommended for ppl who attack more and use block defence in between to maintain the rally and then again go for attacking strokes !!

I'm using goldarc 8 (50 hardness) both sides and it worked really well with this blade. A little ajustments with my forehand side coz the dwell time is much higher than my backhand. You can create strong spin with these rubbers and looping is so lovely. Zoom zzzzoom!!! You can do whatever you want, blocking, pushing, flicking, top spinning and counter top/ loop and opening up easily. All you need to do is improve your technique to get the full potential of the blade. Enjoy!!!

Fantastic blade that plays exellent in short game and has very hight catapult effect far of the table. Underspin balls and counterloops are domination aspect of Hurricane long V. I recommend only hard chinese tacky rubber( I use H3NEO 40 degree) to FH and soft rubber to BH(yinhe moon soft).

If you're a looper THEN THIS IS THE BEST BLADE FOR YOU! I'm currently using Hurricane 3 Neo Provincial blue sponge in forehand and Tenergy 64 in the backhand. I really love this setup and this is my common setup for any blade. I know you are wondering why I'm using T64 in an off++ blade. HL5 is definitely a super fast blade but it has a soft touch that gives a huge amount of control in every contact. I was using Viscaria for the past years and I really love it but after using this HL5, my whole game improves a lot! I sell my Viscaria and stick to this one. It's a beast in all aspects! You just need to learn the proper stroke of the rubber that you will put on it because for sure it will act different in different kinds of rubber. It takes time to learn how to properly use this but it will be all worth it!

Ma Longs weapon reviewï. Great finish on the blade. Two types of fiber between wooden layers. Clean cut on all corners with comfortable handle. Handle is very flared in typical DHS style. It has good size and it feels good in medium size hands. There is a picture of Ma Long at the bottom of the handle, lol. My blade is very heavy. I think it is around 100g, no less, and size appears to be average. Play and feel: High amount of stability and super large sweet spot. Speed of the blade is just insane. I am not sure if it is due to material composition and gluing or just sheer weight of the blade. Personally I have to hold back all the time or else I would overshoot the table. Most problematic shoots for me are serve flics and high speed looping shoots. Openers can be bit problematic also. On flicks since blade is heavy it puts some strain on the wrist (forearm). Blade does not vibrate or flex much at all. It catapults the ball super-fast all the time. Sometimes when you hit the ball with medium amount of power you score a winner. This is a very expensive blade running at 200$ plus. I think this is the last time for me buying Ma Longs blade since I am nowhere good enough player to actually use this or should I say I cant utilize 100% of it. Recommendation: If you are blocker or pusher this blade may be what you are looking for. It will provide you with speed and stability with minimum swing. If you are looper than I would not recommend this to you at all unless you play at least at 1300 ITTF rating, which realistically is a professional player. Maybe even higher rated players should use this. Price is a big downside of this blade too. Hope this helps and have fun.
