I got to play with a friend's Maze for a period, and I thought I would review it. My friend had Tenergy 64 on both sides:
Overall, 9/10 for me. This is a great blade, especially for the price.
SOFTNESS--I am not the kind of player that notices hardness/softness of blades often, but I could really feel it on this one. This blade has a velvety feeling to it. It is quite soft.
HANDLE--I played with the ST version, have not tried the FL. The ST handle on this one is AWESOME, ties with the Timo Boll ALC as the best ST handle for me. I have big hands. I change my grip a bit between FH and BH (exactly like Timo Boll). and I like to have a thick handle I can maneuver. The Maze addresses all these issues. It has a thick, square handle with rounded edges.
SPEED--This blade is medium-fast, but it's more fast than medium, if you know what I mean, particularly wearing Tenergy 64. This baby has some power. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well I could power loop from mid- and even long-distance with the Maze. The speed reminds me very much of the TB ALC.
CONTROL--This blade is all wood, so it doesn't hae the added girth of the sweet spot of, say, an ALC blade. But even without that, it has a big sweet spot. It controls really well, I would say better than my Waldner. I noticed it particularly in the short game and service return. My topspin strokes were vicious with the Maze. I could hit a silver dollar.
WEIGHT--Don't know why, but this blade feels light. I believe it must be the balance, because it weighs 82 grams, and that's not unusually light. Balance is another one of those characteristics that I don't often pay a lot of attention to, but I noticed it in this blade. Even with two sheets of Tenergy 64 max on both sides, it felt like it floated in my hand.
All in all, this is a special blade. I have something I love, and I don't feel like changing. but if I didn't I would consider this for my blade. And I will be suggesting it to students, intermediate in particular. This blade has the potential to take someone in the lower intermediate range and stay with them well into expert land. It is the kind of blade you hope students will get when they want something faster than their ALL+ beginner blade.
I've been playing with this for years, having bought it in Japan. It's stiffer than most 5-plies, making it ideal for countering and blocking. Very think core layer. Topspinning is also good, but it's not as flexible as other blades, therefore there's less dwell time. It's excellent with short pips. Very low vibration.
very nice blade - excellent control - i play it with T64 max & Stiga boost tc 1.9 - works gr8 - Rubber with a harder sponge probably work nice also - if you look for a midium fast - softer blade with gr8 feel - try this one
