Tried this blade (shake hand grip) 18 years ago with 38mm ball, which was an old version with oval shaped handle and with the number "032" engraved at the bottom of the handle. Weighted more than 120g (according to the details of a factory re-made version that I also have). It worked well with Chinese tacky inverted rubber with mid hard sponge, able to produced good spin, speed, and control when looping, driving at all distance. Even able to chop well with a 1.8mm soft sponge tacky rubber (although chopping was not its best) while maintaining good speed in attacking. Pros: outstanding control, good speed, one-can-do-all blade, cheap cons: very heavy in today's standard

My brother bought me a 032 when he toured China in 2009. When I started playing TT some 20 years ago, PF4s were pretty much common in my place because of their affordability. Back then I did not give them much thought as I was into Butterfly and Stiga blades. It is only now that I get to appreciate the 032. Good control, not much vibration for a wood blade and capable of strong smashes. Looping, though, is another story. The blade is really stiff. I'm using RITC inverted rubber; maybe if I'll get one with a softer sponge I'll be able to coax looping consistency on this one. Overall, a good blade for block, smash, controlled play. Look somewhere else if you are a looper.

a true classic. I'm one of the lucky one to ever get a PF4 032, the old old old old old one... before DHS was copyrighted or whatever you call it (little R with circle around it)... have it in penhold 109g. it's heavy but if you only play one side with penhold, then it's holy. Yeah.. it's suitable for hitters, not for loopers because it's too hard.
