FEXTRA is a handmade 7 ply pure wood blade laminated by initiative attaching technique, which could offer steady hand-feeling and compensate the control ability to the player who's weak on this skill. The 3 middle wood-layers reflect clearly the reaction of force and counterforce, which helps the blade to release fast feedback to the coming ball. While the carefully selected supporting wood-layer will easily bring to you the high quality quick attacking looping effect.

Reviews of Sanwei Fextra (6)

This blade is almost an amalgamation of a 5 and 7 ply, so has the the best of both worlds. A bit thicker (6mm) than a traditional 5 ply, it is slightly more stable for blocking and flat hits, but being thinner than most 7 plys, it still loops and topspins really well.Medium hardness and some flex give you good arc and the sweetspot is large for an all wood blade. It's off- in nature with that great wood feel and excellent control. I've had about 6 sessions with this blade and it compliments my spin based allround/offensive style. Very reasonably priced (about $30 US dollars),
it is a blade that has made a very good impression on me. Tested with Yasaka Shining and Rising Dragon 2mm.
Weight: 89 grams; Plies: 7; Thickness: 6.02mm approx.; Speed: OFF; At first glance, it seems that the handle of a Stiga Carbonado was copied but that is just it. This blade is simply the best on what it does - attacking! Even though it has the same composition with the Stiga Clipper wood, it plays better with the same fee. The Fextra has some softness on ball impact and is good for looping. The fextra is actually a very fast blade. It is faster than the regular clipper wood and almost in the level of the Adidas Challenge speed. Top plies are limba-limba followed by ayous layers of wood.
Awesome and superb blade. Outstanding feeling, touch and power. Control just amazing. Handling from the other planet, i'm going sleep with it in my hand))))
A fabulous blade from Sanwei. 7 ply blade with Limba-Ayous-Ayous-[Ayous Core]-Ayous-Ayous-Limba construction.
The Limba -Ayous provides good flex and adds to the topspin capabilities of the blade. I used to play with the DHS Hurricane Long 3 blade (Ma Long 3) and was looking for a off- blade with similar capabilities. This was it!!!
I tried the Stiga Clipper, Tibhar Samsonov Force pro and few other blades but ended up liking the Sanwei Fextra 7.
No other blade at this price range is more suited for spin based game play.
On a comparative scale - DHS Hurricane Long 3 > Sanwei Fextra > Stiga Clipper > Tibhar Samsonov Force Pro > DHS PG7
Rubbers - This blade works well with both tacky and non tacky rubbers. I used a boosted DHS Hurricane 3 on my forehand and Tibhar Evolution MXP on my backhand and the results were impressive. I tried the MXP on the forhand side too and surprisingly it performed well for heavy spin based play style. Never felt any lack of control.
Verdict: If you can afford and handle the DHS Hurricane Long 3, go for it. Else the Sanwei Fextra 7 is a good substitute with reduced speed and added control for topspin based plays
This is really good blade for offensive style of play. I would say this is OFF- blade with very good control and feelings. FEXTRA is great for both loop and attack. You can also block and serve very confidently with it. This is 7 ply wooden blade so keep this in mind when you try to loop near the table, because it is faster than 5 play blades. The best strategy with FEXTRA was to attack (smash) near the table and power loop when you away from it. It pares well with Chinese tacky rubber. Overall, this blade has good balance between speed and spin (attack and loop). Since this is pure wood blade it provides great feelings and excellent control. Do I recommend this blade? Yes, I do.
I love my Fextra ,feel of the ball is great handle so comfortable. Its no a speed monster but has all the speed that you need just love to play with this blade gives me joy and happiness . I'm using rasanter r 42 fh and Tibhar 5 q on bh,5q on this blade is just ok but rasanter just great. I highly recommend this blade.
