Submit a short review about Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive - Chinese Penhold.
Very nice blade. I've played for a long time, but I'd never owned my own paddle before. My first entry point, and I couldn't be happier. It's light, but has a large sweet spot and generates tremendous speed and spin. I can loop for accuracy and smash with power. I'm using Yasaka Rakza 7 rubber primarily.
I have this blade for 7 months now, playing 2 to 3 times a week, and for FH I use DHS Neo Skyline TG2 & BH I use 729 Focuse III Snipe. Well the light weight of the blade definetly increases it's control, but thats not it!! this blade is a beast!! it acts upon the rubbers attached to it, so if the rubber with low control the blade increases it & if the rubber with high control the blade stabilizes it. a very good choice if your thinking of buying the "Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive Blade".
Was a bit disappointed with the quality of this blade. The wood grain looks like its going in 2 different directions!
Besides that, the handle is very nice.
Playing wise, I put on 2 Joola Mambo H for forehand and backhand. This rubber is a fairly slow rubber so it will influence my assessment of this blade.
This has a good solid feeling to it but it also possesses the flexibility and light-weight that a good looping blade has.
5 plies, 2 of them being hard outer plies of walnut have given this blade its attributes.
Speed-wise, I would rate the blade as being offensive, maybe slightly on the lower end of Off. Out of a scale of 10, I have rated it as 8.7 so its got more than enough power for most players. While the blade is moderately fast, the control factor is still noticeably present.
I have been able to chop quite well with this setup because Mambo H is quite a slow rubber, probably equivalent to Sriver. The blade itself is slightly flexible which also helps, but I would not recommend this blade for a defensive game.
The Extra Offensive would work well with all rubbers- whether it is soft, medium or hard like Chinese rubbers.
If you're looking for a good quality, not-so-pricey and offensive blade, I would recommend the Extra Offensive.
This blade is fast between off- and off (Bty's rates) and blade is lighter than other wood blade.
I found its feeling not firm because type of wood which make its.
Summary,Good speed and control (Not great but it's OK)and light!!
Very good control with lighting speed. Although there is a little bit weakness when far from the table, it is enough for a penhold player. Because their advantage area is close to the table.
