MA LIN EXTRA OFFENSIVE is developed from the succesful Yasaka OFFENSIVE blade, but even faster, keeping light weight with good speed and a large sweet spot.



The center veneer is a little bit thicker and harder, which gives additional power.



The surface is lacquered by the factory to improve speed and durability.

Blade: Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive (J.T.T.A.A ver) CS FH: Xiom Omega V Tour DF (max) BH: Butterfly Solcion (1.9) From all of my experience with TT blades, I used to used both carbon and all wood blades from many famous brand (DHS, Yasaka, Stiga, Xiom and Butterfly), yet I still find this blade is one of the most controlable blade yet powerful enough to finish point on close-medium distance to table plays. Im not sure how much weight mine is but it is surely lighter than Stiga Clipper WRB and it is more thinner. It is a bit thicker than Stiga Ebenholz V. However, it is more solid and has more touch. With my expereinced with this blades more than 6 months. I can safely say that it is very consistant blade that you can easily control ball placement on the table with any stroke (assuming that you got enough training). My BH rpb and FH opening loop rarely miss and it packs a lot of punch to finish point. Smashing is good but not good as those 7 plys or carbon but better than average 5 plys. It offers solid touch on push and service. Blocking is very consistant. However I never plays chop stroke as Cpen user, so I cannot really comment on that. To sum up, I think this blade is suitable on close to middle distance to table plays for offensive to control loopers. In addition, I think the price tags on this blade is reasonable to that now I buy 2 more blades for replacement.

Good blade. Despite being hard it has a lot of flex. Many of gears too, slow on touch strokes but explosive on swinging harder. Sweet spot is big, but the feeling of sweet spot is not as distinct as in most composite blades due to the vibrations that follow after hitting the ball. Vibrations are more pronounced with the new plastic ball. This makes it unsuitable for consistent hitting, however, looping is a dream. Overall, very nice blade. I use JTTAA version, don't know how the regular version plays.

Very nice blade. It allows you to have a good feel! No regrets buying this! The weight isn't very consistent but i took one which was 88g. Heavy but powerful. I could still respond to RPB fairly quickly. Blade vibrates a little but overall the perfect setup for me. Paired it with the new Yasaka Rising Dragon Max as FH and Yasaka Raksa 7 soft Max as BH. The only issue is the workmanship isn't as great as Nittaku blades.

Nice blade. Perfect for blocking because of tis stiffness and hardness but, amazingly, it's very very good for topspin. Speed is comparable to TB Spirit but the all-wood feeling of YEO is much better. Overall is a very good blade, stable and predictable, good for every kind of strokes. It's not hard to understand why it's one of the all time best all wood blades. Highly recommended!

As everyone mention, the feeling. The feeling with this blade is amazing, i cant describe. Sweetspot is almost entire blade. Mine is 87g. Fast, medium/hard bit of flexure. Control is the best ive tested. 9.5 for sure. I use with Rakza7 max both sides. I can produce monstruous spin in both slow loop or loop drive shots.My serve is very damaging. The only problem i have is flat hits but i think its more due technic/rubber than this beautiful blade. I recommend to anyone who like to play until 2m of table, more than that i think will lack some power.
