Too much flex. You lose control because of this. The odd shape makes it difficult to try complex service movements. Superior to some of the highly priced defensive blades.

I like this blade. Although not fast, it has good control whether close to the table blocking, away from the table chopping, or mixing up sidespins, topspins, and the occassional lob. I got pretty good response out of Quattro UL and Focus III Snipe, Venus produced really nice spin but it made the setup too heavy. Currently I use Outlaw on both sides (180 grams) and feel it gives the best combination of speed, spin, and control.

This is an oversize blade, similar in size to the toxic series. The handle is a little bigger and probably better for big handed players. The flared handle is smaller and works much better for me. This is one of the slowest blades I have ever played with in terms of control, but does not have high vibration like toxic 3 or neubauer barricade. Unlike those blades the kevlar allows one to attack to some degree. Certainly if one wants to play the modern defender game this blade will work with a fast rubber on the FH side. The only problem is that one needs a fast, but lighter in weight rubber-since a thick sponge makes the setup heavy. I originally used 729 highpoint on 2.2 sponge (155 grams with my OX long pips), but more recently have really found this blade plays well with both galaxy venus, dawei inspirit quattro and best of all with joola green energy. This is by far the best combination defensive blade-chopper and forehand attacking blade I have ever used and believe me I have tried a lot. I see no reason to try anything else.
