Reviews of DHS Power G13 (9)
My Holy Grail of blades. Chinese do know how to get it done. If Wang Hao really helped to design this beauty I am thouroughly amazed. What a guy... Control is amazing. Service amazing. Touch, undercut and short game, fully controlled, even with soft-springy tensor rubbers. Handle is great for Bananas and backhand kills. Forehand topspin is a dream, harder you hit the better. Sound is delicious when you bottom out. Vibrations almost none. Sweet spot almost covers the edges. Feeling is great with loads of control on all of the shots. Very direct aswell. PG-13 is cheaper version of Hurricane Hao 3, which I had pleasure to play with. To me this blade is flawless. Nothing bad I can say about it. It works well in any scenario, from close, from far, blocks are just awesome, underspin shots are easy to perform aswell. Placement with this blade is impecable. And the price... It took me few sessions to adjust to it, but I am playing better and better each time.
Manufacturers details are messed up on revspin for this blade it has 5 layers - Koto/Ayous/Fibre(middle), it is the same as I mentioned before. Hurricane Hao 3 from DHS.
It's fast blade with quite nice control. Good for looping and even better for smashing. If you use hard sponge rubber you might notice poor feeling when chopping. Anyway It is good quality blade in good price.
I am beginner level player and the first time I got this blade I was using it with DHS H3N on fh side. That rubber is so slow without booster (it forces you to learn full stroke aka chinese technique and footwork), but when you learn long stroke like chinese players then there is a lot of speed even without boost. Now for the second time I bought this blade and used it with DHS H3N PRO Blue sponge 39. It was something special! A lot of speed and control, also great feeling for the ball on the racket (dwell time). I recommend this blade with DHS H3 Neo on fh side.
All in all this blade is not slow and for 35 euros it is a blow! Great feeling for the ball, plenty of control, easy to execute full stroke with a lot of spin, excellent blade for loopers, smashers and all round players too (with slower rubbers). Excellent for the game close to and far away from the table. My blade is 5.8mm thick and 88g weight and it is perfect for every offensive player. I didn't feel any vibrations at all and I would say this is average stiffness and medium hardness.
There are faster and more controlable blades out there, but they cost at least 5 times more (for example Long 5 or Zhang Jike ALC , I own them both and used them with same rubbers so I can compare them).
There is mistake in stats, in fact it has 5 layers: 4 wood + 1 carbon in the middle. So it is excellent blade for beginners and intermediate players who want to become loopers.
Overall 8.5 - value in price
Good looping friend. Vibration is lessen thanks to mid carbon. Easy to lift underspin. Blocking is nice, chopping from mid distance is accurate. Need extra power from longer distance.
Paired it with a Gold Arc 5 (43 degrees) forehand and a Power LT for backhand. with C-pen, the racket is stiff and crisp, but the gold arc gives it some grip and dwell time on the ball. with proper technique, the ball can be extremely spinny or powerful. a relatively comfortable blade to use and train with, and in competitions, it is can also be highly offensive. The mono-carbon layer gives it a massive sweet spotand a higher speed than all wood rackets, but the number of plys mean that it also weighs more, which can need additional training should your techniques involve heavy wrist movement. all in all, it is a brilliant racket for its price and will recommend it to people wanting an entry level carbon blade.
