Very ballanced and funny to play with. A real quality blade where anything goes!

Wondeful blade, and nice looking too. Tested 3 different rubbers, and it played best with Nittaku Fastarc G1, soft rubber went well too, the Tibhar Genious Sound was spinny as hell. Worst was a very heavy Stiga Mantra. Didnt pair with this one, Good built, and finishing is awesome.

The Nittaku Bloodwood is a gorgeous and moderately fast 5+2 composite blade, which offers a direct feeling on ball impact. Given its OFF- characteristics, I suspect that this blade is better suited for faster and softer rubbers, where the ball gets a chance to penetrate deeper into the sponge, allowing for higher levels of spin production. In fact, I substituted the Hurricane 8 with a sheet of provincial DHS Hurricane 3 Neo and this immediately rectified some of the problems that I encountered with the original test setup. Thus, my low-impact FH loops and serves were spinnier, while my FH power drives and flat hits were faster. The Bloodwood is appropriate for players of most levels except – perhaps – elite players, who perhaps might find the blade a little bit too slow compared to other composite blades on the market.
