When I first got this blade, it felt quite hard. However, after playing with it for a few weeks, I can definitely recommend it.
Two things really surprised me about this blade:
1. The total lack of vibration. For me, this is very welcome.
2. The impressive offensive options.
It is quite rare for a blade to have enough speed and flex for looping and driving, yet still offer excellent control. Blocking with this blade is almost too easy. Practicing against 1st league players hitting extremely heavy loops, I was able to get the ball back every time.
It has quite a large blade area (so if you want to re-use old rubbers from a different blade, they may be a bit small), and the sweet spot definitely feels larger than my other 2 blades (Donic Appelgren Allplay and Donic Burn All+).
I have the anatomic handle and I absolutely love the way it feels in my hand. Also, the overall finish of the blade is the best of any blade I have ever owned. The edges are completely smooth and it just feels like a quality product.
Overall, I rate this as 9.5 / 10, as it does everything well and can be used equally well by defensive, all-round and attacking players.

Pretty stiff and hard for a control blade. Big sweet spot,but alot of vibration in the handle. Faster then apple green all play ,but more vibration, control is average compared to other all+ blades .

It works very well for offensive players with hard sponge rubbers. It has very good control.
