The Stiga Optimum Plus blade Combines Crystal Technology with Offensive Classic wood. The Optimum PLUS is a five-ply blade that uses the same outer plies as the best-selling STIGA Offensive Classic blade. It is faster than the Optimum SYNC, although the Optimum SYNC is a bit lighter. Thanks to Crystal Technology, the Optimum PLUS is much lighter than most blades of a similar speed. Crystal Technology (CT) is STIGA’s unique process that hardens the surface of the blade, thus increasing its speed. You’ll be amazed both by the crystalline appearance of blades treated with CT and also by the extra zip on all your shots.

Too hard for my taste. It will play well with tacky rubbers but I wouldn't advise to play it with regular Euro-Japanese rubbers unless you are an all-out attacker and then you would be better off using another blade anyway. Short game is an issue here, but flat game, looping with tacky rubbers are pretty good.
I love this blade!
background: I am a 1900 USATT rating player. I've used TBS, Ma Lin Hard carbon, Stiga Offensive, 7.6 Carbon, etc.
Rubbers: Chinese rubber FH, japanese rubber BH
This blade has the best control over all of the blades I've used and surprisinly it's as fast as the Ma Lin Hard Carbon with more control. My serves have more spins because of the soft-medium feel on this blade.
Strange feeling for a all-wood blade. The hardened surface makes drop shots longer, and also loops need to be timed a bit earlier. The construction was suppose to mimic the OC, but it doesn't...the 2nd ply (power ply) is much thicker than the spruce in the OC. Hence the Optimum plus feels harder to hit through to the middle ply.
