You can say that Waldner V1 is Donic version of BTY Primorac Off-. No, I am not saying that it plays and feels exactly like Primorac Off-. But what I am saying is that this Off- blade is a versatile blade, similar to Primorac Off-. However, I like Waldner V1 more because its FL handle is very comfortable, it just fits right in my hand.
It is good for any shots. It really depends on your technique. It is good in the short game, excellent for looping, and good for blocking/hitting as well (because it is about 5.8 mm in thickness, thus provides enough "back-bone" without getting too hard or too stiff).
If you say being ALL+/OFF- will make Waldner V1 lacks in speed, then just use fast rubbers and it will shine.
Good blade indeed.

Very good control with medium hard and hard rubbers, enough speed to kill the point. Mine has FL handle and I really like it's shape.

Very good quality blade. My one is 81g. Standart head size, like Stiga. Super control and ball placement. I was searching for soft and stiff blade, and this one is ok. Speed is ok - have enough power when hit hard, so can do finish point, but not too fast for other parts of game (I'm 30 years old, play tennis for 2 years). I agree, blade good for everything.
I play with FriendShip Focus 1, and Geospin - wonderful. Hardness of rubbers is about 4-5.
