For the speed rating, this blade has good control. Realy shines from mid to far distances and near for flat drives off of mistakes from you opponent.

Pear shaped head, really cool for fast swing backhand loop. Little vibration though.

In the past i played some another hinoki carnon blades -Gergely carbon , Primorac carbon , Xiom Axelo , Xiom Ignito. Strato ist most soft of them. Against Primorac carbon is slightly slover and significantly softer. Softest hinoki carbon I ever tried. my two pieces are 84 gram and 80 gram . In this weight is Strato not extrem powerfull blade. Wery good match with plastic ball - stiff , mild feel , enough power , light. I am happy that I founded it. I checked in the past all blade - categories and - I hope - I founded my definitely blade. Highly recomended with short or medium pimples on BH side.

I used butterfly gergly tamca5000 but due to the loss of control switched to xiom strato Fh &bh rakza7 soft max 1st was difficult to smash but after lot of accuracy it is dangerous on the table even after tremendous topspin,smash ball is back on the table opponent gets confused descent paddle

I have found out this blade has the excellent speed balance with control and good quality.I will compare with the other hinoki carbon blade.This blade is the softest hinoki carbon blade which i ever used,but not softer than aryl.C or Aramid.Speed is almost equal to Gregerly.Superb control because it has the softer feel.
