All-round with good feel DONIC's latest creation is the CAYMAN, an extremely light and relatively fast all round blade with high rigidity and excellent control. This blade is especially suitable for players using pimples. The hard outer plies are particularly effective when using long or short pimples. Blocking and counter attacking become more deadly and more troublesome, especially for long pimpled players. Amazing control, with no lessening of speed, permits the player using this DONIC blade to attack and defend and enjoy his game. This does not only apply to players using pimples.

I've been using this blade for years with 1.5 Donic Akkadi Taichi on the forehand and 1.2 Piranjatec on the backhand. An excellent combination on this very light blade. Flat hiting and and blocking are excellent on this blade but I can't comment on looping or chopping as I don't do these shots. The blade being balsa is very light and pretty fragile so you have to be very careful with it at all times. Control can vary with some shots because of the lightness of the blade so I'm thinking of upgrading the Akkadi Taichi from 1.5 to 1.8 mm. I don't think it will upset the balance.

Good light blade. Due to the hardness of the outer layers, it has almost no feel at all. Better paired with soft sponge rubber. I had hard sponge rubber on it and keeping the ball under control was challenging.

Used this with Donic Vario Soft & Mach 1 rubber, this blade is faster than advertised with great control. This blade can loop well with soft rubber and counters fast. Worth a try as backup blade.

Got this as my first "real" blade. Its very delicate since the inside is made out of cork and uber light. No vibration, very soft feel. I don't like this blade since I don't feel that i hit the sweet spot often and its just way too soft for a counter hitter like me.

Control: high

Stiff light blade, the best blade I tried for pimple. Good control, ALL+ speed, good hiting but not really good for looping, it's better to use soft rubber

good stuff! this is how the blade plays:

blocking/flat hitting: this thing blocks and flat hits extremely well - especially when near the table. Many times it'll surprise the opponent because the ball gets returned before they can recover from their stroke

looping: I found it a bit tough to produce some spinny loops. So far I've been experimenting with a bunch of different rubbers and it seems a medium sponge has been working the best

chopping: not the greatest for chopping because the blade lacks feel. Like for looping, medium rubbers seemed to work best for me.

A very good blade for the full-offensive player, but a finesse-oriented player should look elsewhere.

Fantastic blade! Love everything about it! Super light, balance is in the middle (not top heavy), feel of the ball is excellent! My first Balsa and favorite blade so far. I'm all-rounder.
