After the introduction in China market during the winter 2015 the blade GOIABAO 5 is now ready also for the European and the US market.

The word GOIABAO has the meaning "nice wood" - a very suitable name for this elegant blade with top level play-ing characteristics.

GOIABAO 5 is a fast 5-ply blade with a hard outer veneer and a relatively thick middle veneer. The second veneer is hand selected Scandinavian pine.

GOIABAO 5 has a sealer from the factory for easy rubber removal when needed.

I have owned Nittaku Septear, Yasaka Extra Offensive JTTAA and Joola Rossi Emotion blades in the past, and have played with couple others but this blade is my favourite. Goiabao can be flexible when you're looping and can turn stiff and hard when you're hitting/driving. I don't know why it feels this way but I love this property of Goiabao. There is nothing negative about this blade. It is bouncy so my short game needed adjusting but after only a day of playing this started to feel like the most controlled blade I've ever come across. It is way superior to YEO. More people should play with this blade

awesome blade, i changed from donic epox powerallround. I was liitle bit scared for change from all to off+(its more like off not off+), but its fine. Fast, enough control. Im using with rasander r37 on BH and rakza 9 on FH. I think i will change rakza 9, its too fast for me and little bit heavy. Racket has 181grams. But blade wasnt 86gr, but mine is 89. With rubbers is weight more to head, i have to try softer and lighter rubber like rakza7soft against rakza9.

Best yasaka blade I have been using so far. Fast 5 ply woods with very minimal vibration compared to ma lin carbon or yeo. Solid in feel. Balance in weight. Beautiful in design. Good in quality. You can do every type of strokes with ease. You can block, hit, loop, chop, drive with no problems. Moreover the price is quite cheap. Best for attacking, hitters and loopers. Play best with soft tensor rubbers or with chinese tacky rubber. I play it with nittaku hurricane pro 3 orange sponge. Looping is fast and spinny. The ball fly low becoz the blade is low throw. Block with this blade is the best. It is not affected too much with the incoming spin. The ball will go low and very fast

This is a hard and stiff blade. At first I thought I did not like it because it felt so flat. However, when I switched from a hard sponge (Nittaku Flyatt Hard) to a softer sponge (Andro Resanter R42), I realized that I could loop much better. The Flyatt Hard is great, but not for this blade. This isn't my favorite blade but it is still a great buy!
