In the past few years we found there is a clear demand of a certain part of players who like speedy woods but in the same time they need lighter solution compared to classical offensive rackets. To meet the requirements we developed our first koto and spruce based blade as the King of our best seller blade series Virtuoso.
V'King provides the speed of a 7ply offensive wood but keeps 5 ply feeling. Besides you can take the advantage of the weight of a 5ply blade if you need a lighter offensive racket. Over the construction the head shape and size also provides offensive torque. We recommend this table tennis blade from close to the table to mid range for players who combine blocking, counter hits and topspin elements.

A bit harder and faster than the Virtuoso+, with better control at high speed but a bit difficult to control in the short game. Could use quite a bit more dwell time but that is the only downside I found if the speed isn't too fast for you. The V'King is faster than Timo Boll ZLF and slower than Timo Boll ALC. This blade has a beautiful crisp feel, which few other blades rival, when paired with a good soft rubber like Donic Bluefire JP 03 or Tibhar 5Q. The V'King is like an upgraded Hurricane King (though I haven't tried the HK 655, so can't compare to that). The V'King has a crisper feel than the HK, is slightly faster and slightly stiffer, and has about the same control except in the short game where the HK's extra dwell time and slower speed give it the edge. Here's hoping OSP comes out with a V'King Off- which has quite a bit more dwell time, a bit less speed (especially in the short game), a bit more crispness (i.e. a slightly softer secondary layer but the same hard top layer), a bit more flex, and more of the same wonderful Koto/Spruce feel and sound. Since I can't enter numbers for "Stiffness" and "Hardness", I will specify here that I would rate stiffness as 6 and hardness as 7.
