Reviews of Sanwei Pro F3 (8)
**Note: There are two versions of this blade. The old one which sounds like it was a copy of the Timo Boll ALC and the new one which is more of an Innerforce ALC build. This is a review of the newer Innerforce ALC version. Also note that I am not the most experienced player and reviewer.
I compare this blade to a Liu Shiwen ZLF and 2 DHS H301's. This blade is the fastest of the 3 and has control that is very close to equaling the others. Though, the build quality is the worst of the bunch.
When I first got this blade I found it had too much bounce for my liking. I was using Rakza 7 and 7 soft at that time. However, my game has improved a bit and I have put on Battle II (45) on the FH and Palio Hadou 40+ (40-42) on the backhand. This combo works great for me, it is just a little bit heavy. I have a bad shoulder and the weight of this setup can cause strain if I have an odd stroke while reaching for a wide ball. I recall my blade is 91gr. My Liu Shiwen and H301 are all about 6-7 grams lighter overall and do not irritate my shoulder as much. I am now looking to get an 86-87gr version of this blade.
This blade loops as well as any of the three. The short game touches are on par with the H301, maybe better (could be rubber choice). Where this blade excels is opening up on backspin balls. It is the best at this shot compared to the other two. I hope to get ahold of an 86-87 gram version and hope it is close to my current blade in performance.
If you ever wanted to try an Innerforce ALC type blade with a Limba/Ayous outer ply, this is cheap way to go about it.
I use this blade with Battle II max (FH) and Neo H3 2.0 (BH). Strong weapon for looping and speedy also. A little vibration, and it's good. Blocking is also nice with great sound. Overall, it's a good training blade with descent price, compared to it's role model, TB ALC.
Pingy Sound. Good for tensor rubbers. Bouncy with the tensors, would recommend to boost mid tensor rubbers. Throw is MID, spin potential is high with the right rubbers. Got straight handle and like the play but the sound is horrifying to listen too.
This is a blade constructed much like Butterfly's Innerforce series in that the a/c layer is next to the core rather than right after the top layer. This offers a woody feel while still allowing the power and stability a/c blades generally offer. The downside to these blades is that they end up feeling too soft or mushy and the Sanwei Pro F3 is no different in this respect. It has good feel and control but can come off as mushy feeling. Using hard rubbers, especially Chinese rubbers will reward you with a balanced feeling of power, control, and consistency in any playing situation. It's definitely a solid blade that can compete with its European and Japanese counterparts costing 3 and 4 times as much.
Great powerfull and control blade. More spin and power when go with hard rubbers. I use gewohyper kr on fh and gewo xt 5.0 on bh.
Amazing blade. Lots of catapult. Awesome spin, power and speed when clubed with hard rubbers.
Better than anticipated, Handle fits my larger hands well. feels balanced and responsive yet accurate.
Only have about 8-10 hours of table time with it so far. Didn't miss a beat armed with Joola Energy max blk BH, and Joola Maxxxx 450 FH. I love it !!!!!!
