Donic Defplay Senso V3

Select handle type:

4.5/5

Truly awesome blade for the modern and versatile defensive player! The worlds most successful veneer combination (5-ply allround ) is manufactured with two dampening but elastic outer plies. (Gabon and Anegre), the vibration and the speed of the blade is reduced by increasing the size of the blade by 3 mm, the Senso technology brings maximum dampening effect. The result: an unbelievable control for all defensive shots. A fantastic acceleration for all offensive shots. Pure playing excitement.

Speed: 63
Control: 94
Weight: 74
Plies: 5w
Thickness: 5.5

Reviews of Donic Defplay Senso V3 (14)

My style is close to modern defence but with long pips (Curl P-1R) on forehand and thinnish inverted (a 1.8 Dr. Neubauer Domination) on backhand, and I re-sized the Defplay to 157 x 149. The oversized blade was way too heavy and unwieldy, and felt like I was trying to swing one of my mum's old frying pans from the family kitchen. However, a few sessions with the oversized blade, out of curiosity, told me that is borderline godly for defensive play, with long-distance chops and fishes hitting the table with an amazing consistency. Re-sized, it became stiffer, more predictable, and faster (probably ALL- or even ALL), and doesn't feel that much slower than my old Applegren Allplay. However, it is significantly spinnier than any other all-round blade I have tried, and it obviously suits pips out and spinny chopping. Indeed, it has great dwell and feedback, although I lessened both and sped the blade up by lacquering it, even when I know that Donic blades tend to play better without varnish and are cheap enough to replace if you do rip off some wood when changing the rubbers. The upshots of the (relative) speed, though, are that long-distance chops tend to reach the other side of the table without a problem and point-ending attacks are made even easier providing you put your body into them Chinese style. As with most defensive equipment (Curl P-1R, Neubauer stuff, slowish inverted chopping rubbers, etc.), full commitment is necessary to maximise the spin from the Defplay as well as to make your shots consistent. Once you have got the hang of the blade, including the flex and the hollow handle, you can really cut the ball in two, and the amazingly comfortable straight handle really suits twiddling, too. However, the fact that the handle is hollow does affect the blade's balance even when it's resized, and if you plan on using the Defplay as a 149 x 157, you'll need to find a way to make it 5-10 grams lighter than your normal set up if you want a shorter transition period.

Great amount of control and for a really low price but need a fast rubber on it

This blade is meant for rubbers that allow you to create your own spin. Do not use the more frictionless LP such as Grass Dtecs, Bomb Talent, etc. on this blade because the blade is too soft to get reversal.

I heard good reviews concerning this blade so I purchased one for hardbat play. Sealing and some light sanding was needed for the lower wings for added hand comfort. The FL handle felt comfortable and was not to thin. With Yasaka A-1-2 OX pips I found it to be an excellent blade for hardbat. Compared to my Hock blade this one was a bit faster with the same long dwell time for great control. This is a 5ply defensive blade and would be suitable for hardbat, defensive choppers or makes a great control-allround blade with thinner rubbers. I can feel the ball vibrations very well due to the Senso handle. The price is good, the performance is excellent and highly recommend for anyone looking for a very good Def+ blade.
