Have it in cpen. This blade is a killer with control with Andro Rasant PowerGrip 1.7or1.9 on fh and Nittaku Hammond Pro Beta 1.8 on backhand. The ball just goes where I want it. Pair with these rubbers and it'll surely be a delight. Setup feels like a controllable offense blade. Not too heavy either which was one thing I was worried about. Worth the money. If you're looking for a great first paddle get it. I like the pair with fast rubbers, but I've read it works great with mark v as well for beginner set up.
- Buen control
- Juego mixto tanto atrs como pegado a la mesa
- Recomendado para principiantes
- Mango y agarre incmodos
- Falta feelin, cuesta un poco sentir el golpe
Decent Blade. Here's a history of what I've used and how it compares.
Note the overlapping setups for blade/rubbers.
1. Donic Appelgren Allplay (Flared) with Butterfly Sriver and Yasaka Mark V
2. Donic Appelgren Allplay (Anatomic) with DHS Hurricane 2 and Flextra
3. Stiga Allaround Classic (Flared Master) with Butterfly Sriver and Yasaka Mark V
4. Donic Appelgren Allplay (Flared) with Yasaka Razkza 7 soft and Tibhar Nimbus Sound
5. Nittaku Latika (Flared) with Yasaka Rakza 7 soft and Tibhar Nimbus Sound
Donic Appelgren Allplay vs Stiga All Around Classic - I preferred the Stiga. My shots with the Stiga landed more on the table than the Donic. For control and looping, the Stiga was better. However, for flat hitting the Donic was definitely faster. The Donic also felt heavier despite it being rated as lighter than the Stiga. For feel of the handle, the Stiga was way better than the Donic and I think even better feel than the Nittaku (surprisingly)
Donic Appelgren Allplay vs Nittaku Latika. Sound of the rubber when paired with the Donic was better. The Nimbus Sound rubber makes a chirp when brushing and a click when flat hitting. This sound was more pronounced on the Donic. NOTE: I've only used the Latika for 2 weeks so far so I'm not sure if there's a breaking period needed.
The Latika seemed to 'respond' better than the Donic . Blocked shots would dwell a little longer on the Donic and shoot off the table. The Latika allowed me to direct the ball with a lower trajectory and more accurate aim. Loops with the Donic had better arc than the Latika.
Overall, I think the Donic Appelgren Allplay is a decent blade. When out of the box, the edges of the handle were still sharp so I had to sand it down a bit. For those learning to play, I would still recommend the Stiga All Around Classic because it has better control, better feeling handle, and forces you to use better mechanics.
I'd have to place this blade on the ALL--- side. I found this blade to flex well, creating great spin and dwell, but it was just a little too slow for me. Loop drives became a high percentage shot for me while using this blade, but just required too much effort to achieve and rarely past my better opponents. I'm going to donate this blade to my 9 year old son and play with the Grubba for now.
Huge surprise from Donic. I have come across it accidentaly. Everything is written earlier by these honourable gentlemen are confirmed totally. Extremely solid feeling, enough speed for attacking. Is is not as crazy fast as carbon blades but its speed is more than enough to kill the ball. The ballance is perfect, not head-heavy at all in spite of the fact that max rubbers are applied. The control is much more than you can imagine. New dimensions are risen on the horizon. Ridiculously low price because it is an old warrior and we are misled by the marketing gag. I bought it for ~20 bucks only. If Donic knew how great this blade is they would charge us much much much more. A bag of greenbacks if you ask me. I mean really. It is an excellent choice after Stiga Allround wood if you need more UMPH :-) I feel obliged to rethink my earlier comments and reviews :-/ I LUV it.
Excellent all round blade but the Flared handle is fairly big so it wouldn't suit the missus. If one were looking for a more meaty blade than a Stiga All round this would suit. Works well with medium hard rubbers if you're looking for more performance.
Blade with great control and not that slow as it looks like here...much depends on the rubbers, players abilities and preferences. It can be a beast if you know how to wake it up. Overall, one of the best blades on the market.
I can only mirror what others have said about this blade. It is simply an all-time classic.
If you are learning the game or coming back from a long break, this is the perfect blade to develop all the strokes.
It is nice and flexy and feels absolutely solid and reliable, no matter whether you mainly chop, block, push, drive or loop.
I currently use mine as my back-up blade. It has Baracuda (2.0mm) on one side and Xiom Omega IV Elite (Max) on the other. This setup is completely versatile and reliable. I know that if the ball does not do what I want it to do, it is my fault and not the blade's!
Definitely speed isn't best parameter of this blade but conrol and feel is.
Practically you can play it everything.
Good for beginers and all-around players.
