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.

Played a lot with this blade when I was younger. Picked up tabletennis again and started using this blade. Felt right at him it offers loads of control. This blade has a medium/high throw angle. I think this is a very good beginners blade, it's allround and offers you the confidence to play all strokes possible. Biggest downside of this blade is later on in the rally when you need speed for hard hitting or (counter)looping. Overall a very good blade to develop all the basics in tt.

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.
