The best blade i have ever played with. Very high control and dwell. Paired with Yasaka Rising Dragon very easy to loop and produce lot of spin. Not bad for smash. Blocks very consistent. High quality and cheap !

I hear people say that the Nittaku Glaze does well with this blade. Though that may be the case for the Glaze, it is not for this blade. I used the Glaze on this blade and was left dissatisfied. Use the Tibhar Evolution MP-X. That gives you a great merge of rubber and blade. Pros: Fast, good for looping, and good price. Cons: Small sweet spot, and a little heavy.

If you love 5 ply all-wood blades this blade is for you. For me it is better than Acoustic because of more harder feel that allows you to perform topspin better. The blade is reasonably fast, but not too much. The handle is long, which I like very much.

good speed for looping but quite slow for flat hitting. Excellent finish product by Nittaku. A lower price compare to Acoustic and Tenor. But almost same character. Pair this blade with Nittaku Galze and Magic Carbon. Its main asset is its control and placement of the ball. In two months i will be upgrading my rubber set up from all plus to offensive., Great Blade and Excellent finish.

This blade suit for allrounder-offensive player.Good speed and excellent control.So,it's great for short-mid distance,long distance is ok too but you have to use your power more than usual.For me this blade's feeling is almost as good as Stiga clipper wood cr or Avx P700 because of this blade has 5 ply woods but clipper and P700 has 7 ply woods. If you finding wood blade excellent control I suggest this blade but if you want more speed clipper & P700 are better choice. For me,i choose this.
