There are 2 users using the Galaxy Venus V-1.
Three Kiso Hinoki wood layers with two layers of CarboKev composite form the basis for Galaxy's first high-end blade. The Venus.1 excels at offensive play close to mid distance from the table for players who look for looping kill-shots.

This blade plays like the Butterfly Photino.

Picking a good rubber for blade is very important for this blade. I prefer hard rubber for offensive player. If you are defensive player then soft rubbers.

A very stiff blade. Produced a lot of power comparing to my previous Galaxy W-13, an allround blade. I loved it. The only complain I have is the thickness of this blade. At 7mm, it is creating a bit of problem to me as I am a penhold player

Soy Fan de Galaxy-Yinhe N 9 de las primeras que hacian ,no la de ahora mas pesada 94 G.y tenia muchas ganas de probar este modelo de alta gama de Yinhe, la Venus-1. para un compa±ero del club y he de decir que aunque me inclino mas por las palas de laminas de madera pura ,este modelo de Kiso HInoki y Carbon tiene muy buena sensacion de toque y ha pesar de ser rapida ,no es en excesivo y tiene buen cntrol.El peso de la que recibi´pesaba 90 Gramos y con gomas Tenergi- 05 (pesadas) ,la encontre´un poco cabezona de la cabeza asi que al ser grande de dimensiones de la pala 259,5 mms, la reduge de la cabeza ,unos 2,5 mms y del contorno un poco ,dejandola en 257 mms,,ya lo he hecho con otras palas , no lo aconsejo a los que no tengan experiencia en ese tipo de arreglos o modificacion , si no se tiene la herremientas apropiadas y ser un manitas.Ahora al reducir en la madera y en las gomas ,que tendria que llevar de mas, es mas ligera ,pesando 87 Gramos ,3 menos que antes y ha mejorado el centro de gravedad ,para mi bastante mejor que la Butterfly Timon Boll ZLC y otras mas caras es parecida a mi anterior Nittaku Shake Ofence de 3 Hinoki-2-Carbon ,que era mas ligera 81 Gramos .con mango anatomico ,pero me gusta mas este mango (FL)y la forma de la pala y esta es mas gruesa 7 mm y un poco mas rapida.y sobre todo habiendola reducido un poco de largo y menos de ancho,ya que aun esta bien de tama±o .no es peque±a. Para el que le gusten las palas de carbono es una buena pala ,ya no tan barata .como nos tiene acostumbrado Yinhe y pueda permitirse comprarla adelante ,pero con gomas no muy pesadas o 2,10 mm del derecho y de 1,9 del reves,probadas en mi caso con Tenergy-05 o de 2,00 mm en ambos lados de otras marcas ,sino ya sabeis os toca retocar la madera y no le doy mas puntuacio ,es por haber tenido que retocar la madera ,de momento la deja asi ,hasta que la pruebe mas tiempo.

This is a beautiful blade. I bought two very expensive Yinhe blades. This, and the NR50. I love them both. The V-1 has a substantial top ply of Hinoki. However, the synthetic layer below gives it more consistency and stiffness. I find too much hinoki makes the blade too loopy and my shots go long. They managed to find a good balance here for my type of game. I like this blade a lot and hope to play with it more. Currently, I have Thors on one side and I find it works well. Whoops, i realised that I have palio emporer dragon on one side and moon pro on the other side. I have played with this blade more and decided that it is the best I have ever played with. It has the hinoki feel of my old butterfly powerdrive, but the hardness below to control better. More of my shots go in with this blade than any of the others I have tried. It smashes hard, smashes with spin, loops, can defend better than some of the all wood blades i have as well. There is no doubt in my mind that I have found the best blade that I am likely to find. We are lucky other people havent discovered this one! If you're reading these comments then you should probably buy one. Don't let the price fool you. The quality manufacturing is very good, and they discovered what works well here. Hats off to Yinhe. This is an update 19Sept2012: I have played with this blade a lot more and can assure you that it is definitely a game playing blade. It has consistency and the feel of being in control better than any other blade I have used. Anyone who knows the hinoki feel will enjoy this blade. The 1st review above is quite correct in that short play is great with this bat. No regrets about shelling out for something this good.
