This is a very good defensive blade from Yasaka.
Quality: I have purchased Yasaka products before and I have always found their products to be of very good quality. The Yasaka Sweeper is not different. The blade I received was flawless, quality wise. The layers of wood were even, the grain was nice, and the handle was well made. For a $40 price tag, this blade is definitely a good buy, because I think the quality certainly surpasses forty dollars.
Playing characteristics: This blade, as expected, is slow and very controllable. I have Gambler Reflectoid (2.0mm sponge) on the forehand and RITC 837 long pips (1.0 mm sponge) on the backhand. Close to the table, the blade is great for pushes and blocks - the ball can be placed anywhere on the table. Also, despite the speed rating, it is easy to attack with this blade close to the table. Even with a slow inverted rubber, I am able to perform put away shots with a full swing.
I play away from the table, using long distance chops to set up mistakes to which I can come in a finish the point. This blade is great for this style of play. The blade is a little over 80 grams and has slightly oversized blade dimensions, as most defensive blades. The weight is just right: it is light enough to maneuver the blade when defending, yet it is heavy enough to still pack a punch away from the table. So, along with the bigger blade size, long-distance chops are easy to perform. This blade will not by any means be able to sustain a high speed long distance rally, but with the right rubber, preferably a spinny one, a player can generate shots with lots of topspin or sidespin from longer distances. The handle of the blade has a nice feeling. It is almost entirely round, with the exception of the top and bottom of the handle that is flattened. The product is a handle that allows plenty of grip for chops and topspins, while still retaining the ability to twiddle. I have also found the wood in the handle to be nice for absorbing sweat.
Overall, Yasaka Sweeper is an excellent defensive blade. Any defender looking for a quality blade that doesn't come with the Butterfly price tag should certainly look at the Sweeper. I know that this blade is not that well known or marketed, but it is definitely worth having as a defensive blade.
