As others have noted, gray paint is no longer allowed in tournaments, but it can be sanded off. The racket has a superior speed, which, however, results in significantly reduced control when used with hard rubbers.
An absolutely offensive racket that forgives little, but ensures hard and fast topspin hits.

very well balanced blade, never find the same. FOR ALL PLAYERS OR BUYERS THE “BLADE” IT’S NOT ILLEGAL!! Just the silver paint(metal) is illegal! If you take it off there is no problem!! I’m participating with no problems!!! Regards!!

Just to comment - as someone already did here in 2010 - that by ITTF rules this blade is ILLEGAL in tournaments.

I had to sand off part of the blade, because the rubbers would not stick.
Otherwise, the blade is very good! Fast, light, hard/stiff, but not the annoying high tone the T5000 has, when you hit the ball.
Definitely worth a try, its a shame butterfly stopped making this blade.
I will never sell mine.
It is something special.
