The carbon layers are placed on top of a 4 mm strong Balsa core. Covering and middle ply consist of 0,6 mm Limba for each ply.

Playing Characteristics:
The combination of Carbon, Limba, Balsa and Dotec ensure an extraordinary synthesis of speed and control. Despite of the enormous potential for speed, quick topspins and smashes, the ball control for touch shots and slower play is remarkable with this blade.

Its hard to go back after using the handle this blade provides. the Cork deadens the unwanted vibration without killing feel for the ball. the result is a very smooth feel. The blade itself has a lot of speed as well as ease of touch. One of the highest ratios of control to speed I've experienced in a blade. One thing to note is the design of the handle results in a more closed forehand and a more open backhand. The amount is marginal but worth mentioning. This means it is a bit more difficult to loop on the backhand side and a bit easier to loop on the forehand side.

First Donic blade, the handle enables my previously useless backhand attack to be lethal, even with low over net shots, and I can get terrific speed and whip from forehand loop attack, while keeping push/ chop returns nice and low. Using with Rakza soft rubber I get amazing feel of the ball and control. Beyond my wildest dreams really, suddenly I’m winning matches I would have lost.

Compared to Yinhe T-6 and Sanwei HC.5S, this wonderful blade has incredible feel and outstanding control, while still being fast enough. My blade only weighs 75g, so it would be slower than, say, a 85g blade. However, blocking and serving is incredible, while topspins still work perfectly well. The grip is actually quite helpful. Even though I was fearing that my backhand woul get worse, the opposite was true. The rather more "open" grip, supported by Bluefire JP 03 on the backhand really improved my backhand. I put a Blue Acuda P2 on the forehand and this rubber supports a very controlled offensive game. Still, I might be going back to Vega Japan or EL-S or EL-P for a little more power. Anywhoo: Outstanding blade, its rank (currently 13 or 14 - oooh my review boosted it to rank 4!) is well deserved! On top of that, I got mine for only 55€, so I am very happy about it.

Due to the handle it makes it easier to get good arcs with forehand this is great for getting side spins to the right, but backhand is more set up for smashes/pushes/counterattack placing a bit harder to keep the ball down and looping. The handle is very comfortable, the best. Take some time to adjust, stokes are a bit different, some benefits some costs. Therefore, consider getting rubbers that suit the setup, like T64, razaka 9 worked best for backhand, and T05fx andro rasant grip forehand. I think due to the angle, you can get away with using a faster rubber on forehand to compensate for the angle. It is important to change your play style a bit to suit the handle as it does make a noticeable difference but it can be a great asset if you play by its strengths.
