8.8/10 for OFF style. FH/BH: Butterfly Sriver, 2.1mm, 41g (0.2g/cm^2), 38 degrees (Shore A). Blade: Stiga Rosewood NCT VII, 97g, 158mm x 151mm x 6.8mm (Width x Height x Thickness). Plies: 7 (Wood + NCT): Rosewood - Ayous - Ayous - Ayous - Ayous - Ayous - Rosewood.
I have been using this blade for three years. It is not an off+ blade but in the middle of off range at most. Slower than kenta alc (86gr) e.g.. I have two samples at 87 and 88 grams and they play the same. Good match with medium hard high tension rubbers. But does not play well with rubbers softer than 45. This is of course a personal preference. It has a long trajectory and medium throw angle. Depending on the rubber It can work well from all distances. But for me it operates best one step behind the table. It has a distinct hollow feeling which is fantastic and inspires confidence for all types of shots. It is stiff and hardly flexes at high power shots. Surface veneer is medium hard.
I am an amateur veteran who has been playing table tennis for 30 years. I am an (old school) forehand dominant offensive player. I play all out attack when not tired :) and more allround nowadays and this blade supports both these strategies.
Rosewood can vary alot on weight which also determines how it plays etc. This review is for srw nct7 weight 87g thickness 6.1mm straight handle. So another great blade with really good feel and high control . This one feels special at top spin , loops and counter looping. In fact it's above average for all other types of play. Overall feeling is not so hard and has a great flex when needed. The throw is beautiful I would say medium to high, and the ball tregectory is perfect just land on the last 20% of the table all the time. The blade is a slightly head heavy with max rubber on , a bit like timo Boll spirit but this actually packs power to your shot especially topspin , it becomes more aggressive due to that weight. Overall one the best 7 ply all wood I have played with.
However never liked the heavy ones over 95g too stiff and too much power and the control not too good.

This is a very powerful blade if player has the strength and power to control. Dwell time is very short unless hitting with exteme power and correct stroke. In the era of big plastic ball, this blade can loop and provide decent support.
