The Ludeack produces a crisp and direct contact on FH and – especially – BH drives, which affords an excellent feeling of the ball. The blade is only moderately fast, I would say low-to-mid OFF-, but it really delivers in the control segment. FH and BH drives were near-impossible to miss with this blade. While the Ludeack is best suited close to the table and mid-distance, it still delivers from distances although greater physical effort is required. Even though the contact point is crisp, there is plenty of dwell time for generous spin generation. Accordingly, the blade produces a surprisingly high arc on FH loops against heavy backspin with plenty of clearance over the net, making it a...

My favorite 7 Ply wood blade. It’s a Limba/Ayous/Ayous/Ayous composition blade with incredible control and feel. Considering it’s speed (solid Off- with the new ball) this blade has the best control I’ve ever encountered and I own close to 50 blades. On average they are around 85g and 6.5mm thickness (I own 5 of them varying from 84-87g and 6.4-6.6mm.) It offers (to me) a perfect balance between enough elasticity and flex for good looping and counter-looping and enough stiffness and backbone for good blocks, hits, and directional control. Weight distribution is fairly balanced. The flarred handle feels great in the hand and is the perfect size for my medium/large hands. It does everything I ask it to do with great feeling and control and plenty of speed for my needs when paired with an offensive rubber. Incredible blade with typical Nittaku top of the line construction and finish.

It’s my first real blade coupled with hurricane pro 3 and turbo orange (Nittaku).
Can’t really compare but I’ve been able to progress to a lower intermediate level quite quickly with it great control. Now I feel it’s a little slow and will probably use some faster rubbers like g-1 Fastarc and Rasanter r42.
I’d definitely recommend it to serious beginner who could use it throughout their career.

It is a mid ALL+ to OFF- blade. Very good control and very good quality. It reminds me of the Petr Korbel for some reason. It is a 7 ply Limba and Ayous construction. Its speed is kind of comparable to the Stiga Offensive Classic. I have a straight grip one.
