We have combined the finest woodplies for our new DONIC BLOODWOOD blades, plies which are normally used in the production of exclusive high quality speakers and musical instruments.
The Bloodwood outer plies are especially solid and hard, to produce the blades' required stiffness. In order to create the best possible mixture of power and feel it was important to combine the hard outer plies with soft inner plies and carefully harmonize the different thicknesses.
We had to establish new technology to glue the Bloodwood plies:
Bloodwood and Palisander plies required stronger pressure and higher temperatures in the gluing process in order to create perfect feel and avoid disturbing vibration.
DONIC BLOODWOOD 5 is an allround + blade which would be classed as "Quick Allround".
The five carefully assorted plies ensure an extremely good balance of speed, control and feel. This is the perfect instrument for players who demand good ball control and want sufficient speed to mount an attack.
The new Swedish top quality blades from DONIC have unrivalled feel when playing!
Paired with the right set of rubbers this beauty can be an OFF- blade . There are some vibrations but very minimal and on smashes it feels awesome. Close to the table touch shots are really linear and consistent. Away from the table (3 - 4 feet) it might lack some speed but speed of the rubber along with your stroke production can compensate for it. Serves are really easy to make short and blocks are pretty good as well.
