Perfectly balanced blade. I did not expect this blade to be this good. I love it for a dominating close to the table game. It is both very stable and easy to open up with. Just like the Viscarias the blade favours players with a good backhand.

this is a cheap great blade, Butterfly Timo Boll ALC clone, it's made in the same way but it cost 70% less!! Fast but not extrem it has always a good control, in the fast game and also in the short game

**UPDATE** 01/16/2019: Recently changed rubbers and play more with this blade. Mine weighs 89g and is 6.0mm thick. The blade is good quality with very smooth finish. The FL handle is similar size to DHS HL5. I put Friendship 729-08 (47 degrees) on FH and Yinhe Moon Speed on BH. The resulting racket is 185g, about average weight, slightly head-heavy. This is definitely a fast blade, with good enough feeling. I'd say the speed is close to a Carbonado 90. Looping is easy with great speed and topspin, blocking is accurate and deadly. Touch shots are very controllable and can be kept very short. The throw angle is medium, which makes this blade a little difficult to play with (I usually play with blades with medium high throw angle). Coming from a Nittaku Acoustic Carbon Inner, I had to adjust my strokes a bit to keep my loops from grazing the net. Compared to Acoustic Carbon Inner, my loops are faster, flatter, and deadlier. However, it's much less tolerant of errors. So this blade is not for beginners. But V14 Pro is a great quality OFF+ blade. I can comfortably say its performance rivals that of expensive blades like Nittaku Acoustic Carbon and Stiga Carbonado 90 (except V14 Pro has slightly worse feeling). If you have good techniques and want to upgrade to a fast, deadly carbon blade at low price, I highly recommend V14 Pro.

So, I bought one blade. I have a normal V-14 too. This one is a bit faster and stiffer and it is built with ALC. The feeling is high and good. I will update later. This blade is a must have! UPDATE! This is a PRO version, which means, that the blade should me more direct and aggressive, than the normal V-14. The blade feels definitely stiffer and a bit faster, the tempo is OFF with a fine touch. Goes well with all rubbers. This blade is a very nice looping blade well suited for an all out looper and attacker style. Similar to BF TB/ZJK ALC. UPDATE 2018! So I finally swithched to this blade from the normal V-14. I ordered one blade to my couple and she loves it too. Yes the blade is around 92 grams. But there is a big thing! After a few trainings my backhand improved because of the different balance of the blade. The blade is around 180-190 grams with most modern tensors considering the really heavy ones. Mine is 183 with 2 Palio AK 47 REDs. So I came to realize that this blade's weight distribution is very good, the middle point of the blade is 1.5-2 cms (0.6-0.8 inches) above the handle. This makes me able to switch my wings very fast. After 4 sessions I was able to succesfully loop 6-10 random loops in a match situation. With the normal V-14 (I tried 3 blades, with the same rubbers) I was slower because the weight point of the V-14 is higher (so it is a bit more head heavy). I also performed a non-intentional crash test, no big deal, but it is stiffer, than the V-14. Last time I did the puch serve I separated the top veener from the V-14, the V-14 PRO only got a little dent.

Very high quality blade. Don't think you can get better blade for such low price (it costed me 34 Eur on Aliexpress). My shots are now much better and more controllable thanks to this blade. Also, it's not too fast, so it's perfect for intermediate players or even begginers. I think I'll stick to this blade for a long time.
