It's a blade with light weight, good control and excellent attack possibilities for a defensive blade. I use it for allround play with two inverted rubbers. It matches my style very well.

This blade has excellent control but gives a certain feel through your hand when chopping. Balsa + empty handle is the reason for sure. One might like it or not. I didn't like it.

Amazing defensive blade, it was made for a modern style, you need to know how attack with accuracy, also I recommend a medium sponge rubber and long pimps with 0.5 sponge. I proved this blade with Akkadi L2 0.6 mm in the backhand and Joola Brave 2.0 mm for the forehand. It's incredible, the ball when I used the Akkadi was a crazy move with tons of chop, also the blade allows you to attack with good accuracy, you can develop this quality for your game. The blade surprised me because the characteristics, I agree about the speed, this blade has good speed so I rated with an 8 because the impressive control.

Much faster than it is officially rated. This blade looked fragile to me. When I attempted to seal the blade about 100 ml of varnish (Polyurethane) just vanished in to the layers of the blade. It became harder. Definitely. May be it lost some of its original features. It has a lot of flex. Hence it gives a different feel. It seems to be a poor cousin to the much hyped defplay senso, which is hugely popular in main land China, where a lot many top-notch defenders seem to patronize it. I found it very difficult to find matching long pimples and reverse rubbers for this blade. Feint Long II with 0.5 mm sponge and Joola Topspin Chop C in thin sponge looked OK on this blade. Butterfly Tackiness Chop also worked well. Defplay senso classic seems to be very spin friendly. One can attempt topspin from far off. Long range chopping is possible. All said and done something vital is missing!

In my opinion, one of the best blade for defensive and allround players. So far I'm playing with the blades TBS and Kreanga Aeros Off +, but the control that this blade offers is phenomenal. Retention time (dwell time) ball on the blade is great, and the blade can be paired with defensive rubbers (in my case, I have paired it with soft rubbers, Donic A'conda Soft which also have the highest possible control and spin) and regardless of the lower speed, because excellent control, the difference in the severity of the impact is almost invisible. A great blade that can be paired with defensive and offensive rubbers and will offer their best.
