This blade is highly recommended for allround players who value control when blocking but especially wish to incorporate variations of spin into their play.

I bought this blade to re educate my strokes. Previsouly i used Rosewood V with 2 Rakzas, way too fast to my level. I paired this blade with two Mark V AD. Yea, it is slow, reaaly slow. But that is just what i wanted. This combo has a really low throw, i mean it, so every shot i have to do the proper technic to hit the other side. Spin i think its low but mainly due the rubber. only if i dig deep in the sponge i can produce good spin. Thats good for my strategy because oponent is getting used to you flat and low balls and then you make a spinny slow loop. Due its elasticity i can make really fast backhand swings, being my primary kill shot. It is awesome for blocking topspins but tricky to do so with flat hits. Sweet spot is medium. Overall id rate this blade as 8, as long as you are a newplayer/developing intermediate. You must go for every shot, you will have a good control. And its light, mine came as 77g. With rubber i think its around 140g.
