Offensive, mid distance looping blade. Thinner (6.1mm), more flexible profile provides a higher ball arc and greater spin.

For an even higher ball arc, try the W-2.

One of the best OFF (not OFF+) carbon blades made for less than $99. Very good balance, great feeling for such a fast carbon blade. I suspect that the carbon layers are positioned a little deeper than on a regular carbon blade, so it has better touch and more control. It does everything well - not super-duper great but really well in all departments which makes it very suitable for control attackers and offensive players who mix it up with placement shots.

The W-1 is a very well balanced blade, it is like the TBS but is more geared towards control than speed. Lovely limba top ply for a good short game. Needs rather softer rubbers for it to shine, I used tensors on it since they're all so soft.

Fantastic carbon blade with almost no carbon ping - its called the wood king because it has the great feel of wood blades with the added stability of carbon. Mid distance looping blade.

I use Coppa X1 on FH and Outlaw on BH, 175 g. Don't know which side I like better, both are exceptional. The FH side has good touch and spin at slower speeds, really sharp loops at higher speeds, and smashes are a dream come true. The Outlaw side produces stinging backhands with blistering speed. The blade has a very satisfying feel and sound. Control is pretty good and I've compared this to many other blades. Yinhe says 7, I feel it's around 9. The only thing I have trouble with are chops, on some other blades this comes more easily. I'm sure I can work on it and develop better touch, but truth is, I don't want to chop with this blade in my hand. It wants to hit and loop.
