Spruce Pressing Technology (SPT) "Made in Germany"
Our finest quality, produced by top craftsman in honour of the Swedish legends.

Top workmanship, made in Germany. The new World Champion 89 blade series is exceptional. It celebrates the 25th anniversary of Sweden winning the World Championships Team title in Dortmund in 1989 (in a historic 5-0 final win against China). DONIC is exclusively producing three new blades in Germany, in honour of the legends Jan-Ove Waldner, Jörgen Persson und Mikael Appelgren. Hand crafted and employing the most modern precision and technical know-how, in acknowledgement of the supreme mastery with which the Swedish Superstars played.

All three models have incorporated an Italian Spruce ply which is over 200 years old. This is combined with a 3mm strong centre veneer of Kiri and for the Appelgren All+ model, Ayous combined with a new Carbonfleece Zylong webbing (CF2), exclusive for DONIC.

Only the finest saw plies of our own production are being used. These are more stable than the usual knife plies and are a guarantee that the blade retains its playing characteristics without the normal deterioration.

A specially developed drying procedure reduces the moisture content of all three types of blade from 12 to 16% to only 4%, resulting in a stable and light blade (Waldner and Persson blades weighing approx. 85g and the Appelgren All+ blade only 80g approx.) Each individual blade is subjected to a special cold press for 24 hours.

The employment of our unique 3D-technology and the most recent bio technology ensures that the handle is in perfect shape.

This is a fast blade but with great feel and ease of control. Designed for players who require a balance between speed and control.

Reviews of Donic World Champion 89 - Waldner OFF (15)

The best blade I ever had, and I played with Butterfly, Yasaka, Yinhe, Stiga, Adidas and some more. I agree with all comments, blocking is out of this world. Mine weights 87 gr and I paired it with Nittaku H3 pro turbo orange FH 2mm and Nittaku Sieger PK50 BH 1.8mm (195gr): amazing setup. Short game is amazing, but it does not lack reactivity on strong shots or away from the table. I had to adjust my forehand and backhand tops a bit but I'll get used to it soon. The sound is super nice and in general the paddle gives you enormous confidence because you know that if you have a very offensive opponent in front of you, you will be able to block everything he throws.

I've used this blade with T05 on both sides for half a year now and I must agree with the others - its premium quality. I have used an old Alser blade before and wanted to switch to something faster. This one has less feeling of course, but still awesome compared to carbon blades. Counter-topsins, short push, even chopping is absolutely doable with the right technique. Blocking is supreme. The only thing that leaves some concernment is looping backspin balls, although it could be bc my rubbers need changing. Does anyone have suggestions for rubbers? I mainly am a blocker and also like to start attacking plays, so I'd prefer one that's good for looping backspin balls. I recommend it to any attacking playstyle over intermediate level.

Very nice blade. Perfect sweet spot, very good control and feeling. No vibration at all but you can feel the touch softly. Works well paired with Andro Rasanter R37 or R47. Only negative side is the handle. Its a bit too thin.
