I changed to this blade from a Butterfly Gionis Carbon Allround which I found too heavy.
I bought this in anatomic handle and it straightaway felt damn good in the hand. Many others have commented on how comfortable it is to hold. In the end I sanded down all the edges a little and its a dream! This handle allows me to incorporate more wrist action in my shots for more deceptive side spin on loops and counters. Especially, I am able to put more side spin on my backhand kill shots.
Playing characteristics: great for all types of shot, loop, blocking and chopping. The soft carbon layer is easy to activate and adds the extra speed for placed kill-shots. Control is superb as is the huge sweet spot. The lightness of the blade means quick redirections of the arm and wrist are very easy as well which is great for blocking.
As the blade is quite porous I would recommend sealing the blade.
