The perfect blade for offensive players.
hard, flexible, fast, high throw blade.
The flexibility gives it a high throw in loops.
The hardness gives it speed in loops, and low throw in block.
Speed is between OFF and OFF+.
It is almost flexible as a 5-ply (e.g. stiga offensive cr, DHS pg2), but it holds up well at max power, so you don't have the problem that powerloops to kill go too high and long. (which happens with hard 5 ply blades such as infinity, dhs pg2, offensive cr).
block is great: keeps the ball low, because of the hardness. (and the blade almost does not flex when blocking, only when looping)
sweet spot is big but not huge. To improve on that, you will have to switch to carbon.
Only drawback is that, being hard, you can't hesitate when you loop. your loops must have power.
Best blade I ever tried (I tried maybe 60 blades).

A very solid blade. I love the oval ST handle. I think it's particularly good close to the table where, due to it's medium stiffness, it allows for very stable and crisp blocking and looping, but since it retains a little elasticity, it also does quite well at mid-distance. Despite some claiming it's an OFF- blade, I would insist its speed is in the OFF range. I stopped using it because it was just a little too fast for me; this also made my short game less than ideal. However, I will very likely come back to it (or a Senso version) later on, when my power and consistency improve. I would advise beginners to stay away.

A further favourite blade for me. Guess blade is underrated here or works only with few rubbers. Paired with Fastarc G-1 I`ve fun now and play this package this season. First round I've 18:2 result in our league. Lost 2 games with new blade or rubber test. Worked best in topspin, blocking, smashing and chopping and overall in controlled OFF game. Bought this blade one year ago during sale action for very small money. Was surprised this system worked so well with plastic ball. Tested this blade already some years ago but was not happy with average play behaviour. Next impovement on FH is using Aurus Prime. Is not so sensitive for incoming spin as Fastarc where I made many chopping faults.

One of the best cheaper price penholder blades I've ever used!

One of Donics most sold blades. Works everytime. This blade is a allwood legeng. Fantastic ballance and speed fast when you want it. Tried many rubbers on this, i think it works with both hard and soft rubber, but the best setup yet is Nittaku FastArc G-1 and Andro Rasanter R47. Fast, but with unreal spin and good control. Price also good.
