This blade is a rare breed,slow when pushing and blocking with the ox pips with more control than other def blades that I tried.,however there is a balsa catapult effect when topspinning and it is very choosy with the f/h rubber,I tried t05 1.9 and although I was winning more tnan losing there was an unpredictability which made counter attacking tricky.Next I tried t 05 1.7 boosted and the throw angle was so high that it was difficult to put any powerspins into f/h shots without going off the table(very good smashing window though)
So I though t a lower throwing boosted slice 40 1.5 might be a solution and the options with this rubber are better with still good attacks now I have confidence to twiddle for b/h attack,it`s early days but good so far,may step up to 1.8 slice cd
After more practice the T05 1.7 is playing like a dream ,look no further

Good blade for playing defensive game...my friend use xiom omega 4 pro and 729 cream for the rubber....it sounds weird but I think its a very nice combination..7/10
