I never played with the original HL5, so I can't compare HL5x with it. I really like HL5x. The first thing I noticed with HL5x is its pronounced catapult effect. This feeling is similar to H301, but HL5x is faster, bouncier. Whereas H301 is thin and flexible, HL5x is thicker, with a softer outer ply. This gives HL5x very good dwell time. I wasn't used to the catapult effect at first. But once I got used to it, I fell in love with the blade. I use Yinhe Big Dipper on FH and Donic Acuda S1 turbo on BH. I highly recommend this blade. Very few blade has such a good balance between control and speed. The sweet spot is also very large and gives consistent bounce throughout the playing surface.

I changed from normal Hurricane Long 5 to this blade and I can tell you that is a totally different blade as it performs in topspin and loops, as it has less dwell time so it traduces in more direct feeling and lower throw angle, this blade is more suited for the counter loops and more difficult to loop against chop, I’m talking from experience with Hurricane 3 provincial blue sponge on forehand and Hurricane 3-50 on backhand I find this a looping machine, it’s crazy!

it s a blade for very advanced player. i never see a fast blade like this one. you can just touch the and it goes alone in the other side. it a looping machine and you can generate a lot of spinny and fast loop. if you love speed this blade is for you. it s the Ferrari of table tennis!!!

I upgraded to this version from the regular HL5 and this one is a lot better. The handle is thicker and a slight more boxy (still fairly round) which makes the grip more comfortable. The head size is also a bit smaller and this makes the rubber surface area a bit smaller as well, making the balance of weight a bit more balanced rather than being very head heavy. It is just overall a lot lighter in weight compared to the old HL5 which I appreciate. My total setup (H3N and 05fx) is ~185g.

Review it!
