Nice blade that compares to others with the same origin but with a less expensive price. Nice feeling blade that can deliver the power when needed. Good control and ball placement comes easy. Great blade for blocking and counter attacks. Paired the blade with Donic Bluestorm Z3 (2.1) rubber on both sides. Blade without rubber weighs 85 grams and with the rubber and side tape it weighs 181 grams (perfect weight). One of the best features of this blade is the flared handle it is well designed and fits perfect in hand (awesome). Nice blade give it a try.
I usually play with a Butterfly Viscaria with Tibhar MX-P or Xiom Omega V Asia. I was looking for a ZLC blade and decided to try this one given the afforadable price. I am using the Xiom Omega Asia BH and I tried the Tibhar Hybrid K1 Pro... I was amazed with the performance and control of this blade. Fast when I need it and good control when I need it. I had minimal adjustment with this setup and in some ways better for my style of play. Also the build quality seems just as good and all the other more expensive blades. I will continue to assess, but for now I highly recommend it.
I LOVE this blade. I absolutely love it. It has good speed and power without being uncontrollable. It is relatively light (85 grams or less). It plays good at the table, it plays good off the table. Not as flexible as my main prior blade (sword yokohama yue) but plays faster overall. It is significantly slower than gambler fire dragon which is pretty fast imo. The price is simply outstanding. I was thinking about trying some new blades when I got this and I just do not see any reason whatsoever to put out big bucks for the blades I was looking at. (And yes I am an EJ but this blade has tamed me somewhat).
