The main feature of the new DONIC Alligator Combi blade is the difference in speed between the forehand and backhand playing sides.
The AR+/Def+ blade is made of a 5-ply combination which has been carefully crafted to create perfect harmony between the different playing characteristics of each side. The core is made of soft Balsa wood which makes the blade very light and relatively stiff. On the forehand side, two harder and faster veneers are used, whereas for the backhand side somewhat softer and therefore slower veneers are used. The result is that outstanding power can be achieved when playing topspin shots with the forehand side and fantastic control is guaranteed when playing a defensive game away from the table with the backhand side. The DONIC Alligator Combi is unique in that it complements both defensive play away from the table and attacking strokes and blocks close to the table. Players who use disturbing rubber sheets such as Anti and long pimple rubbers will be especially amazed by the enhanced playing possibilities of this blade.

Great blade i have bluefire m1with and spinlord dornenglanz ox.Good for flat hit or smash Great control and when you miss you know that is your fault.Good balsa for long pips is not too fast, on forehand you must have fast rubber and combination will be great

I am a modern defense player who likes to chop backhand and loop/drive forehand. This is a very light blade and the forehand side is pretty fast for a defensive blade as long as you throw some fast rubber on it(Faster than Donic Defplay Senso). The backhand side just feels like any other defensive blade and it is easy to control. Overall it is a pretty solid modern defensive weapon if you want to play with a lighter blade.

My best table tennis friend over the last five years. Versatile blade with tremendous control. Backhand side is great for long pips, anti or thin inverted for cutting. Forehand side has enough speed, great for flat hitting and blocking but only decent for looping. Straight handle is too thick. I had four blades till now and noticed significant difference (in speed) between them which is not a good thing for Donic. Otherwise the blade is great.

Very control and very slow defensive blade. FH side slightly faster then BH side, but anyway, its classic DEF blade, not for modern defenders. For example, Tibhar STRATUS POWER DEFENSE or Butterfly JSH blades are much faster.

Great blade at a good price. Lightweight blade with small vibrations, allows you too make controllable loops and topspins. The difference between both sides is slightly noticeable. The only thing i didn't like was both outer plies are very thin but i guess that makes it controllable. I suggest always use a fast high quality rubber on the ALL+ side, and experiment all you like with the DEF+ side
