This blade is great! Modern defence player has to try this one! Great control, wonderfull power both for smash and tops. On my forehand I use with satisfaction JP03 and a new Hellfire (long pimples) on the backhand

A pretty big blade. 162 mm X 168 mm Blade face. Excellent long square and robust handle. Thin frame and hence manageable weight. Good for all round defensive game. Great for close to the table blocking game when used with thin sponge or OX long pimples. All most all types of long pimples work equally well on this blade. Great workmanship and product features. Highly durable. Equally good with low or high friction long pimples rubbers. Advertised as one of the best blades to pair with Grass D'Techs. Away from the table chopping is working out OK. Tenergy 1.7 mm is one of the deadly rubbers for the FH side for this blade. Andro rubbers are also suitable when used with thin sponge. There are some variations in the blade features across batches. Though such changes are minor in nature they influence close to the table play. A solid blade. Worth owning.

This is the best defensive blade for modern defensive players--ever! Compared to the Joo Se Hyuk blade it has way more control. And of course a way bigger head too. Still it is not a bit head-heavy--- like the Joo Se Hyuk blade. Forehand: Combine it with a fast tensor rubber (I recommend tenergy 64) and you will get any shot out of the blade you want! Topspin-ability is amazing. Blocking is outstanding and A+ with this blade. Please don't combine the forehand with a hard chinese ain't working well. Play it with a soft or medium-soft tensor wil be very satisfied in every way! Backhand: I am playing this blade since two years with "Giant Dragon soft" long pimples in ox. This combination will make your defense far from the table and also near the table one big wall! The underspin produced by the backhand is deadly and awesome. If you are willing to improve your moder-defensive game. Try this blade! It is available on the market since more than 20 years---for a good reason!

Interesting blade but I do not use it because of uncomfortable handle and blade neck.

Review it!
