Very nice blade. Not as fast as manufacturer said but with nice incredible control. Perfect for allround game

I think the blade is good for all-round player because it has good control and isn't quite fast. Good for close to mid-distance play. It has soft layer carbon, be careful when you are cleaning it with water.

The Tulpe Carbon 7007 is actually a very nice blade, especially for the price. I picked this up for around $20 from alibaba.com, shipped from China. It's well designed and good quality construction. Tulpe claims a speed of 12, but I would put it at ALL+ to OFF-. I paired it with CJ8000 Speed rubber and even then it is not that fast. I believe its carbon layers are more like soft-carbon. The flared handle is a bit narrower and flatter but still feels comfortable. Even with speed rubber, this blade has really good control, better than my main blade. However, this won't replace my main setup (Palio TCT) which is definitely faster.
Update: A friend brought in his Butterfly Korbel blade and it's pretty obvious the Tulpe 7007 is a knock-off of the Korbel -- right down to the butterfly metal logo at the bottom of the handle :). The only difference being the color of the handle and the Tulpe using 2 layers of carbon.
Update2: Yes, it's much closer to the Iolite, color, handle, and carbon layers. Based on the Iolite reviews, that is a very good thing for the Tulpe 7007 :)

the blade looks more like the iolite, not the korbel. the iolite has the blue and gray. hte korbel has brown.
