Super comfortable handle, I definitely agree with other reviewer. I like the light weight (mine is 75g) and round blade shape also. Pretty fast (too fast for me frankly—my first blade with carbon, and my main criteria for a rubber to pair it with is slow speed LOL)! If using it with only 1 rubber, it gives a loud, high-pitched ping sound when hitting that can be annoying; I have ox pips on backside most of the time, so that makes it a non-issue. Another plus—pretty inexpensive. I have modified the handle for twiddling.

As a small asian guy with small hands I can say that the ergonomics of the handle of this blade is amazing. Just a little shave and everything is perfect fit to my hand, "fits like a glove." As for the performance, I say it's 9/10 overall. The speed is great even when using hard unboosted chinese rubbers, especially when counter-driving and hitting off the bounce. In terms of control the blade is also great (atleast for my style), the only draw back is it lacks control and variate when looping mid to far distance but that's not my style and my rubbers are also not made for that game, so that could be a factor also. In conclusion, the blade is fast and excellent close to the table and countering attacks. It is also very light and comfortable to handle. I would recommend rubbers with low-throw (I'm using H2 Neo but I think short pips will also pair well with this blade.) to pair with this blade in order to maximize its close to the table arsenal.

Review it!
