This is an extremely fast blade! This blade is excellent for players who demand intensive attacking play.

The quality and lightness of this Balsa blade show the highest possible speed without losing too much control.

This blade is a very light one gets along great with medium soft rubbers to medium hard.It has a balsa core of 5.5 mm and its stiffness is around 6 and hardness around 6 but very easy to play with.Please dont use tacky chinese heavy rubbers with hard sponges it will be hell for you (unless u r a master of the game dont use it please and waste $$),ery difficult to play with as the dwell time is about 5/10 so better with medium soft i am using rakza 7 max on FH and Rakza 7 soft max on BH with great effect as the soft rubbers increase dwell time.Probably can use soft chines tacky rubbers with medium sponges i have not tried.This blade i played for 2 months initially had max DHS 3 NEO ON BH and DHS Skyline 3 NEO on FH swapped to rakza as above and my backhand has been great.It plays excellently within 2 metres off the table,unsure about more than 2 metres as i dont play far off.excellent in loops with soft rubbers and close to net touches i feel rakza 7 and 7 soft are perfect for this blade as they complement it.For people who want tacky rubber on FH they can use the new Yasaka shining dragon tacky rubber which is medium sponge hardness.Its good for blocking and flicks.It is an excellent blade for people who play close to table and have hand injuries.As it is light can be swung with great ease and i was able to perform so many backhand variations with the blade.Donier needs to advertise this blade more aggressively as a lot of young kids and amateurs can start with this blade.I forgot this blade can perform excellent blocks Balsa core makes the return ball trajectory weird and slow and your opponent will make a lot of unforced errors when he tried to loop your returns.Also it is very cheap to buy.But Blade quality is pro level.Once the rakza wear off in few months will try tacky soft chinese sponge rubbers/yasaka shining dragon to see how it goes with it.
