Not a fast blade at all. But with good control. I do recommend anyone who want to have a good control blade. This blade is a must for beginners along with allround classics and allround NCT.
I have been using this for 3 months and found this blade offer really good control. Before this I use the Tibhar stratus power wood and I found that it was too fast and too little control for me therefore I change to this. After that my game improve really quickly. So if you are looking for a good control blade with some decent speed then go for it and you will not regret.
Note that the CR version of this blade was used by Wang Liqin at his peak as well. Therefore this blade is absolutely world class.
I like the way this blade plays; loops, counter loops and flicks all seem easier. The lift I get in combination with similar rubber is really good. The big down-side is the grip. For me, I found the handle woefully uncomfortable. Comparing it with the Ma Lin Carbon blade, the handle is significantly narrower toward the rubber, I have a bit of a tight grip, but still, it's kind of unpleasant.
This is a good flexible looping blade.
The blade is good for looping because of the flex which provides catapult.
This blade is flexible but it is not soft. It is not hard either (the CR version is much harder). The outer ply is limba, but it feels harder than clipper wood, which is limba too. the wood structure is limba-spruce-ayous-spruce-limba.
With a fast rubber like a tensor, this blade is great for close-to-table looping. for mid distance-looping, or if you use slower rubbers, you should prefer the offensive CR, which is identical but faster due to the hardened outer wood layer.
Opening loop: because of the high flex, which provides a lot of catapult, opening loops are fast without a lot of effort. However, they are not as easy as with a stiffer blade such as Clipper or Offensive NCT: with these two blades your opening loop will be easier (shorter arc) but slower and easier to kill. If your opening loop is still developing, prefer the two blades above for more control.
Blade thickness varies from 5.4mm to 5.6mm.
Good blade for china rubbers. Soft rubbers not good, only good with hardness >5. I use "FriendShip Geospin" and "DHS PF4". Anatomic handle better for me, FL is small. P.S. wrong picture, look like WRB version.
Less flex and vibration than the energy wood. Still lacks speed w/o speedglue like energywood though. Stiga OC NCT is a better alternative in the new non-speed-glue era.
