Reviews of Donic Waldner Black Devil Carbon Balsa (38)
Makes pong sound. Best balsa carbon looping blade. Easy to reverse spin. Really good close to the table. Much easier to use then say an alc blade.
This ply is really good!! Your shots r very consistent with it but don't buy very fast rubbers even now also I use fast rubbers with it but when I will change my rubbers I will use some slower rubbers as it will improve ur game and u won't be dependent on ur rubbers for speed.This ply is good and is enough to be played with slower rubbers as this ply will handle the speed.If u will buy this ply plz use slow rubbers
Its not a blade for beginners, be sure of this. A hard balsa + carbon blade that works better with soft rubbers, I used a Acuda Blue P2 on FH and had no problems in smashes and blocking, but had difficulty in create spin because of the "zero dwell time", serves were just OK. Its very light, but a little bit small on the top of the head. I was tired of miss the table trying to loop and top spin, so I changed to a all wood blade, my game increased a lot. Maybe its because Im not a expert or professional player, but this blade is very difficult to dominate.
I think its not a good for reverse penhold players because its really smaller than other blades, it increases de chances for the ball hit the fingers when the player tries to make a reverse shot.
Lot of people dont love the sound of the blade But i am in love with it :).
I use it with Xiom Omega IV PRO fh
Xiom Vega Japan bh
what i did not like about it was its face size .. its small.. but you will love the sound when you hit smash.. sound and speed :) you need good control and proper strokes to use this blade.
This blade I had an attraction to from the start truly looks astonishing wonderful piece , it's almost stiff type blade with balsa to maintain control and carbon for speed made an excellent combination I used donic x1 turbo platin rubber and this produced some extraordinary results and shots the true sound was amazing but only problem was face size but it wasnt an issue that caused to much of a problem , highly recommend this for the price it's better than the stiga balsa carbon
The material is solid .. so do not feel shakes his speed .. full .. a good combination between hard rubber combined to attack and medium soft with height control for counter block ...
Handle fitting FL suitable for high acceleration rubber that feels good .. I tried was a combination of hard and soft rubber .. I allround play type , spin attack , counter block ... the selection of rubber ( FH ) Andro Rasant Powergrip , character hard suited to spin faster and ( BH ) Andro Rasant Beat , soft character to counter block with height control , the occasional back spin ...
Very sexy blade!. ive got xiom rubbers with carbo sponges and no edge tape. it looks dangerous! it is actually dangerous for a 1350 player like myself because i keep hitting balls off the table. Blade is fast, light, and stiff. feel is minimal. sounds funny. I now use a yasaka special edition 5ply with (f)rakza9 and (b)h3neo. will go back to this blade once my stroke develops.
Had great hopes for this blade. After buying into carbon blades thought that balsa was going to save the day and give me the performance of carbon with the lightness of balsa. The one I got was 88grams so it was nothing like the quoted 80grams. !This blade was probably once of the worse blades that I bought. Had terrible trouble getting rubbers to stick to it. Handle was terrible and head size is small and the balance is a little off. Transferred the M1 rubbers over to it and they were too hard and didn't suit it at all. Did play against a guy who used this blade with T05s on both sides and he plays brilliantly but I couldn't get it to work. It's either a love or hate it blade.
Not very handy for chops and sending "close to the net" balls
I have been using it with "Rakza7 Soft" on FH, that allows me to achieve Control and Spin and due to Carbon this wood has already a good speed. If you don't spin the ball from you back hand you can use any medium hard sponge rubber like CoppaX1.
It's an awesome blade, build for speed attack! my setup for this blade follows:
FH: Yasaka Mark V (max)
BH: DHS Neo Hurricane 3 (2.15mm)
This is a really fast, controlled, light blade. This really is a silent black killer. If you want to feel your shots, this is not it. It's perfect for an attacking player who'd like to place it and place it FAST. Short -long distance attacking is incredible
