The blade is sealed from the factory so no blade sealing is required.
By keeping the outstanding factor of original V5, the new V5 surface is replaced by hard ASH wood (like Nittaku Violin), which helps to increase attacking speed. Adjusted original 3.3mm core to 3.5mm, increasing power and elasticity. A better choice for Quick attack/Loop player. (Special design handle, made by brand-new sticker-shaping production technique.)

Great Blade. Not in the heavy side. Not too soft, not too hard. Mixed with Andro Rasant 2.1 FH Red, Bluefire M2 2.0 Black. Great combination. Very controllable and fast at the same time. With this rubber combination is easy to dominate and adapt. Pushes and chops are amazing. Recommended Blade. Do not hesitate. Price super Great for the Quality.
Wow what a great blade for the money. Used Sanwei Target National on forehand Sanwei A+ Unsticky on backhand. This combo produced a nice balanced paddle with a good bit of control.
This blade is simply amazing. I have used this with Donic Acuda S1 Turbo and Donic bluefire M1. Played both close to table, tried blocking, away from rhe table, used strong and heavy loops. I found it just awesome. Gives terrific speed as well great spin with still very good control. Found bluefire side better than Acuda side due better feel and response. Control also was better on that side. Probably I need to practice more on Acuda side which I started doing now. played for more than 4 months now. Strongly recommend this blade.
To give a little context, I'm a USATT 2000+ rated 2 wing controlled looping oriented player. I play using Chinese rubber on forehand and Tibhar MX-P on backhand.
The blade finish is superb; minimal sanding was necessary on the wings. The flared handle is a little small for me, but I have big hands. This blade is fast for a wood blade; 7 plies ensure enough power from close to the table to mid distance. With tensor rubbers it could be good from far away. I was amazed at the amount of control this blade offers, not just juxtaposed to its power but in general. In a pinch, out of position recoveries, or with reflexive blocks the Pro V5 unexpectedly got the ball back on the table most of the time.
The blade has some flex so looping is good but it excels at loop drives as the blade's stiffness decreases dwell time. This also makes the Pro V5 excel in passive and active blocking, though active is much better. Giving a little bit of a forward motion during blocking was incredibly consistent, regardless of the amount of incoming topspin. This was a great benefit. Short game was very controllable and the medium throw made pushing and flicks fairly easy.
The Pro V5 has a high pitched, almost carbon ping on impact and feels a little (noticeable but not bad) hollow feeling. Despite this, it still feels fairly solid and you get good feedback with every hit. Lastly, the Pro V5 demands good technique to be most effective and it is marginally-at-best forgiving of imprecise strokes. It's definitely not a blade for beginners. Given that, the Pro V5 is one of the best wood blades I've ever played with (I'm an EJ with 13 year's experience). Bottom line: it's got 5 ply control with almost composite power. The Sanwei Pro V5 is a quality blade that plays like more expensive counterparts from Europe or Japan. Especially at less than $50, it's definitely worth a go.
I really enjoyed my experienced with Sanwei product. Though they are inexpensive, all their blades and rubbers are quality products and well-made.
This blade has nice build quality. Flared handle is very comfortable with smooth finish. Great control and good speed for all-wood blade. Goes well with Chinese rubbers.
Though it was made by Sanwei, in my opinion, i think this is a well produced, low-budget blade that's very good for intro level players. If you want to compare, you can think this is very similar to Violin.
I paired with Sanwei Target(not national), and 729fx friendship. They work well, but a bit lack of attack power when comes to loop attack. If megaspin can give me a discount on butterfly, i would like to try it with tenergy 05 and 64.
But overall, good blade for intro player.
this blade is lightning fast! It's the fastest I've used, faster than the Butterfly Primorac Carbon Off + ....... way faster than my other carbon blades...... I don't feel likes it helps to have a blade this fast, but it doesn't hurt either! I'm sure that will depend on your game however, so if you have that kind of need for speed, this will definitely give you the right answer, for sure, and the price is a just a game ender (butterfly primorac is > $100), I have it paired with the softer Mark V called GPS right now but I think I can do a lot more with it...... definitely will be fun to see how different combinations work
