A very good blade. Enough speed after Viscaria and much more control. It plays well with soft and medium rubbers like Donic Barracuda, Coppa X2, Acuda's. I personally have Donic Barracuda 2.0 on my FH and Donic Coppax X2 Platin Soft on my BH. And I love it.
I'm an amateur without any coaching, but play regularly and very passionate about the game. I was playing with a premade Stag Ninja Fire and then wanted to move to a custom set up. My game is predominantly about aggressive forehand topspin loops and drives, with backhand pushes and flicks. I jumped in to the world of custom bats feet first and ended up with a Donic Carbospeed with Mark V on both sides. Hilarious, I know! My backhand improved significantly, but it was no fun. Couldn't topspin - either flew off or hit the net because I wasn't getting good lift on backspin. And too heavy for my liking. Difficult to feel the ball. So, started significant research efforts. Finally got my new set up today - Stiga OC with Donic BlueFire M2 on the forehand and Rakza 7 on the backhand. Any new bat I've ever used took at least a few days and occasionally weeks for me to get used to. This one? Boy oh boy...I just pulled it out of the box and started playing. It felt like I've forever played with it. Smashed a lot of guys around. Amazing feel, solid control, looping and driving is easy. Backhand seems even better. And no, it not slow - when you smash it, it stays smashed. For my game, I'm able to get more power on my topspin than I was with the OC. I'm already in love with this set up and can't wait for more!
Choosing the right blade sometimes can be exciting. For me, it's like choosing an outfit before going to work. It depends on what kind of activities will be involved during the day. I use Stiga OC when I play with more attacking players for its stability and vibration, so that I can feel the opponents power and spin. I pair it with harder skin like Thor (FH) and Goldarc 8 mid (BH). Great stability when block, push, and flick. I can attack well from close and 1-2 meter from the table. Close to table chop is also in control. Overall, it is a good blade for advanced beginners and intermediate players...
This blade took my spin game to an other level with better serve an beautiful hook shot simply by feeling what i am doing .I was a ball hitter with a pips backhand and now i use more table and angle and a lot more spin .I started with bty spin art and i switched to tibhar mxs to get a bit more speed . The spin is just ridiculous with both of these rubbers .If you need super hard fast wood this one is not for you .The control is good but not great and the speed is good with fast rubber like mxs .This blade made me play the right way with good coaching and that's why i'm loving it .
