(No Brand) Dimanka Hurricane 5
This may be a new product, didn't see any reviews for it, but it needs one so here goes. This is a spendy blade, running 50-90$, but with in three hours of play i recommend it! The packaging says 135 for speed, not sure why it posted as 99... Anyway i feel that this is one of the fastest speed blades on the market!!! With that i will discuss the potential down sides... The speed takes some loop off of the ball which takes an hour or so if play to get used to for me at least. The speed was rated 135 control 90 and spin 80 from the manufacture. I think they were fairly accurate on there reviews. Realistically i would say speed is 98 or so and control 89 with spin at 85 loop at 80, out of 100. I purchased this paddle with the dimanka rubbers which seem to be mid to high quality on this blade. I would recommend this to mid to high skill players. This thing has unbelievable smash speed once you learn how to control it which took me a couple hours of play. The spin with this blade and the dimanka rubbers is decent, but not crazy which helps with control. The chops took me less than an hour to get down and they are lasers and accurate for me. I play pen hold btw. Once you learn how to redirect spin with this blade by powering through the ball it is very dangerous. I like it a lot and if anyone reading this drops the coin on this high end blade i hope you learn how to use it. Recommended for offense, but it does chop well for me when in defense. Anyway i think that sums up my thoughts on this blade so far. It also looks awesome with the carbon fiber surface! Seems to be high quality and appealing to the eye all around. I will update my review if i come across anything negative down the line. Thanks for reading!
