The Barwell Fleet is the newest premium high end blade from Nittaku. It utilizes hard wood outer plies with sheets of glass fiber directly under the outer layers. This combination controls the level of vibration produced on ball contact to find the ideal amount of bend. This improves the speed and spin performance of the blade and makes it the perfect choice to pair with new generation tensor rubbers.

The Wood is stiff but you do not fell that, and the Carbon is there only to give you more control and a little bit of speed but you cant fell The Carbon too. The fell is like a Wood blade, that soft fell and a little vibration only to increase your control. The blade is medim-fast but is powerfull In loopings and smashes and drives with a very good control ! This blade is very good to anyone that wants an offencive blade without loose control... I had Zjk Alc, Timo Boll Alc, Donic Ovtcharov, Hurricane Long 3 and Pter Korbel... This blade is The best... Has The control of Pter Korbel and The speed between Dima and Boll alc!

I put it in my right hand and it becomes my hand. More gears than most blades; can go from very soft and slow to very hard and explosive in a heartbeat. Nine plies means lifting underspin is very easy. Touch is unbelievable. The entire blade is one sweet spot. When using hard rubber as I am, one needs to be mindful of their racket angles and brush the ball precisely. With Joola max thickness rubbers on both sides weighing in at 51 grams each, the blade becomes head heavy which I actually like. Handle is wide and comfortable. It fits my hand perfectly and I am 6'2". The neck of the blade is wide and the ergonomics are carefully designed for maximum playability and shot making potential.

I'm blades collector. I 've used over 100 different blades of almost all brands. Its the best one !!! Super quality (best blade ever !!!)and perfect balance in speed and control.TIBHAR 1Q for FH and ADIDAS Tenzone FX for BH. Looping machine. Much better than Ludeack Fleet and Tenor.

What can i say after first training. I back to the TT after 20 years and I played with Klampar tamca 5000 but today with plastic balls my old blade not suitable to me and I tried at TB ALC. I played with TB ALC half year and felt not sure that is the suitable for my style to and according of reviews I decided to change to NBF st .So first of all the blade weight is 92g. Blade not very fast but fast. Little bit slower than Timo Boll ALC. Has very good control. In my opinion it is the good blade who play close to table and middle distance too. So, after the several training I can say that it is very good blade . Not cheap but worth every cent . I think (IMHO) it better blade than TB ALC. Better control and good speed and hasn't vibration !!

It's a thing of beauty. I played with acoustic for about a year using 2mm tibhar mxs on backhand and 2mm mxp on forehand. Better spin I suppose, but the mxp was very springy and the mxs had no power on flat hit and was also springy. With BF, I have better control at the net, on blocks and I can keep the ball shorter and hit flat backhand better. Overall a big, immediate improvement in my game. The speed on smashes with mxp BF is lower than acoustic because the contact is not as springy. Well worth the money.

Review it!
