Blade Technology "Made in Sweden"
The idea originated in Sweden and has found favour with world stars. A new gluing technology was established during the development of the DONIC Ovtcharov Senso V1 blade. DONIC's top players Dima Ovtcharov and Adrian Crisan participated in the first tests and were delighted by the fantastic feel and unbelievable power of this blade. The 7-ply blade with a hard walnut outer veneer was developed to meet the new challenge that the VOC ban will present to players. It is designed for high speed smashes and topspin.
The inner plies are a carefully adjusted combination of medium hard and medium soft veneers. A revolutionary new gluing technology has been applied which results in additional rigidity to each single ply.
A hard nut to crack for any opponent.

Very hard and stiff. Not easy to loop especially with hard rubbers. Blocks like a wall, smahes like a hammer. Nice sound. For skilled players. Update #1: Blade has great dwell time and matches nicely with Donic modern tensors like Bluefire M1, Baracuda etc. Yes its a little heavy but i think a medium skilled player will be very satisfied.
Faster than the Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive, but it has a little bit less control that is not disturbing at all.
Donic's rating on this blade is rather accurate. Definitely an excellent choice if you're going all out for speed. Not so great if you're looking for high control or one that gives you a good margin of error for all kinds of shots.
Flat hits and drives are deadly fast with minimal effort. Looping was a huge problem however - the dwell time is so low that i couldn't lift up backspin balls effectively. Perhaps it's because it's my first time using an european rubber on my FH (i prefer tacky chinese rubbers). The plus side is that spins really don't affect this blade much (even with tacky rubbers) so you can pretty much force your way through most balls at close-mid range.
Tested it out with H3 Neo on BH and M2 on FH and vice versa. Setup was excellent for flicks and drives but pretty horrible for looping backspins. Counterloops were extremely easy. Medium or soft sponges recommended for non-tacky rubbers in order to generate more spin.
Moving from FL to this ST handle, pair with Xiom Omega 4 Pro FH and Vega Europe BH. Looping is easy and well control. Less off the table and good hand feel. Close and mid table has enough power and very good ball landing point control. Amazing performance with all wood design.
outstading speed and control. i can easily control the speed of the ball, i can do whatever i want with this blade. i think that's why Wen Jia is using it
This is a really good blade. It's fast and crisp feeling, quite stiff, but still retains that swallowing the ball feel. It's an interesting blade, suitable for almost any offensive style, it's good for hitting obviously, being a 7 ply. However, despite the 6.2mm thickness, it feels thinner, which might be due to the senso handle, but it seems to lend itself well to looping. I was using a Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive before this, and I'd say the YEO felt thicker than this blade, despite being slightly thinner overall. Speedwise, this blade's faster, but I found control to be at least as good or even better in terms of pinpointing and directing. I could label the corners if I so chose, and hit the extremes if I wanted. That's probably because this blade doesn't feel as springy as YEO, so it's very linear and that helps in this regard. It's still a little too fast overall for me though, especially with over the table play, so I won't be sticking with this blade for the time being. Still worth getting if you're looking for a do-it-all fast offensive blade though.
