Sanwei Pro V5
• One of the most promising blades in the market at a very low cost.
• The blade feels like a cross between a Clipper wood and a Nittaku Violin. It is faster than both blades mentioned, but has less vibration and a better feel on ball impacts.
• The newly improved handle is one of the most ergonomic handles on the market.
• Among all-wood Sanwei blades, this seems to be their most promising.
This blade is factory-sealed so blade sealing is not required.
Maintaining the outstanding performance of the original V5, the new V5 surface is made of a hard Ash wood (like Nittaku Violin), which helps increase attacking speed. The original 3.3mm core is now 3.5mm, increasing power and elasticity. The preferred choice for quick attack and looping players. The special design of the handle is made using a brand new shaping production technique.

Reviews of Sanwei Pro V5 (18)
The head cutting size similar to yasaka-stiga (150*157). Large sweet spot, med-hard, slight flex, less dwell than ccr. Not so springy with touch play but nice feeling with medium tensor/spring sponge. Mine was 160g (tenergy80/V15xtra), feels so balanced, easy to play active block close to table. Looping from mid distance gives nice arc ball near to base line.
The handle similar to stiga legend, has less vibration. Though it's hollow, the weight was distributed across the entire blade, makes it very easy to control. No rough edges, so comfort on my palm. So was when wet, no need to wipe off. Feel natural with grip within thumb & middle finger, easy forehand to backhand switchover.
It's excel close to table. Play passive block and flat drive is where V5P specializes. The harder you hit the more speed & control you get. With the right techniques i was be able to do all shots with safe & less error. It has a medium throw, easy placement at any areas. Power and counter looping at mid distance is more fun than ccr- sharp & spinny ball without using my utmost energy. Control is great too in this area.
Though V5P design based on clipper-violin, it's totally new blade design. U can buy clone blades which have close construction to clipper with a variety of outer ply but V5P is a special weapon with a character. It's cheaper than the cheapest butterfly low end series blade. It's simplicity might looks cheap to someone eyes- no holographic badge, no multi colored handle, which make no sense for our performance in the game. Why waste money if we can get the cheap ones with the same character? IMO don't give bad impression with the cheap blade, let's update our skills. The VP5 performance is more than acceptable.
Cheap with good finish. Definitely worth a try.
Imo the better choice to the f3 pro.
At last the blade has a good finish and is definitely worth a try for the money.
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 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.
