DONIC developed with the CAYMAN, an extremely light and relatively fast all round blade with high rigidity and excellent control. This blade is especially suitable for players using pimples. The hard outer plies are particularly effective when using long or short pimples. Blocking and counter attacking become more deadly and more troublesome, especially for long pimpled players. Amazing control, with no lessening of speed, permits the player using this DONIC blade to attack and defend and enjoy his game. This does not only apply to players using pimples

I've been using this blade for years with 1.5 Donic Akkadi Taichi on the forehand and 1.2 Piranjatec on the backhand. An excellent combination on this very light blade. Flat hiting and and blocking are excellent on this blade but I can't comment on looping or chopping as I don't do these shots. The blade being balsa is very light and pretty fragile so you have to be very careful with it at all times. Control can vary with some shots because of the lightness of the blade so I'm thinking of upgrading the Akkadi Taichi from 1.5 to 1.8 mm. I don't think it will upset the balance.

Good light blade. Due to the hardness of the outer layers, it has almost no feel at all. Better paired with soft sponge rubber. I had hard sponge rubber on it and keeping the ball under control was challenging.

Used this with Donic Vario Soft & Mach 1 rubber, this blade is faster than advertised with great control. This blade can loop well with soft rubber and counters fast. Worth a try as backup blade.

Got this as my first "real" blade. Its very delicate since the inside is made out of cork and uber light. No vibration, very soft feel. I don't like this blade since I don't feel that i hit the sweet spot often and its just way too soft for a counter hitter like me. Speed: ALL Control: high

Stiff light blade, the best blade I tried for pimple. Good control, ALL+ speed, good hiting but not really good for looping, it's better to use soft rubber
