Hard, stiff & fast as the ratings show... Very little dwell time so it's not easy to loop with. The handle is a new and more ergonomic design in the way that you can line up the blade with your forearm more than with other pen-grip blades (better for forehand I guess). But because of the lack of smooth finishing you need to do some sanding for it not to cut into your hand. The idea is innovative in the handle and hand position would be an excellent looping weapon, but it's a pity the composition doesn't suite. Maybe they wanted to cheaply test out the design in the market before developing more high end blades with it (the handle)?

This is one of the best blades that I ever used. I play chinese pen, shake hand and J-pen. I own several blades including few Yinhe and butterfly blades. It is at par with Zhng Jike (c-pen and Shake Hand) and DHS Power PG 9 when it comes to performance. I really love this blade and i am currently using it with Xiom Omega IV Pro on the forehand and Xu ShaoFa on the backhand (yes you can do RPB with this blade due to the modified handle). I am so satisfied I am ordering one again as my back-up j-pen blade.

I bought and played for two weels. Comparing the price, it has top value! Very fast and controllable, also very solid! Good for attacking players!

This is a well made blade. But it is too fast and too stiff for a Japanese penhold blade. It feels like playing with a granite counter top.

This blade is too fast, and too stiff for Japanese pen-hold style. It is not enjoyable to play with this blade. One needs a super soft rubber to match with this blade. Please don't waste your money on this blade.
