If it's your first Chinese-style setup, don't start with the classic, hard H3, but glue someting softer (but still with a sticky top sheet or you'll miss the point).
A thing that I like with this HL5 is that despite the ALC layer, it doesn't behave like other ALCs I have tried, it has a much softer all-wood feeling. This is thank to the inner structure and limba-limba outer plys. So if you don't like the feeling of ALC (let alone pure carbon), try this one.
Also this blade is a little "difficult" to master because it clearly has 2 distinctive speeds that aren't linear. Slow game and servicing are easy, with huge spin abilities. But when you attack hard, at mid-to-long distance, the blade becomes a wild beast requiring some pretty advanced skill to be tamed. Hence I don't recommend this blade to beginners.
Anyway, although not being among the fastest blades around, it's fast enough for Ma Long so I doubt anyone really needs anything faster.
A bad point of this blade is the finish: on mine the wings had fibers protruding, and the handle base was almost sharp. I had to sand all that, which is a shame considering the price of the blade.
My conclusion: it's one of the few blades designed for advanced players, fast, and still offering an excellent feeling. But I'm pretty sure you can find similar, cheaper options, with a better finish, they just won't have Ma Long's mojo ;)
