Reviews of Victas Koji Matsushita Offensive (4)
Koji Matsushita Offensive is flexible blade with hard wood feeling for modern defender who uses FH to power loop as a main scoring method. It is great to loop away from the table. It pares very well with many long pips, has a lot of power and medium high throw angle when looping full power away from a table. At the same time it is stable near due to the hard outer plies of the blade. I like KMO more than Joo Se Hyuk blade because it has much better looping power and it makes 25-30% more spin than Joo Se Hyuk blade with the same rubber and technique. KMO has more feelings and great at both spin and speed. Both blades feel hard and stiff, but KMO does flex when looping away from the table providing pleasant feedback to the palm and has strong weep effect, but Joo blade doesn't have that feature. CONS: it is FAST blade. It doesn't forgive technical mistakes. When I put 40-42* sponge rubber my control and spin came back and both looping and chopping became pleasure to play. LONG PIPS: I used Curl P1-R 1.0mm. These pips chopped/cut extremely well on KMO. Also, Neptune 0.7mm and Feint Long 2/3 pared well with this blade as well. CONCLUSION: KMO is oversized OFF+ blade for loop/attack game for players who play far away from a table. It is fast but you can adjust and control its power with practice to have all of it when it is needed. If you use long pips on BH to chop and have powerful FH loop then it is your blade.
I gave this blade 9 out of 10 simply because of its speed. It is fast for me and I can't use extra hard sponge on this blade which is really sad, but the rest is perfect.
If I choose between KMO and JSH I would definitely choose KMO.
If I choose between KMO and KM Defensive I would most likely to choose KMD. Less speed, more control, softer feel and great spin. With Koji Matsushita Defensive I would need to add more power using my physique every time I want to loop from far table and that is OK .
This blade is really nice for modern defenders who are looking for a blade that can do everything a chopper needs while having the speed of an offensive blade for strong attacking. It's like a JSH blade but lighter, the slightest bit less stiff, a bit (but barely) smaller, thinner (and in my opinion more comfortable) handle, and it has a really nice build quality. Like, REALLY nice. And it's slightly cheaper than the JSH too. I'm using this beast with a sheet of Mark V GPS on my FH and SuperSpinPips Chop 2 on my BH, and it's really good; since this blade has hard outer veneers and it's stiff, I would recommend pairing it with rubbers that are relatively soft (but not too soft; otherwise, the sponge will bottom out). If you're a beginner to table tennis though, I would NOT recommend this blade; I would recommend something else, like the Donic Defplay Senso or the normal Victas Koji Matsushita blade. I say this from personal experience.
Not many people database know much Victas Koji Matsushita Offensive. I won tournament this blade my table tennis friend recommend to me. When I play on this blade got a great control never see all blade people target will say underrated blade but best to me of lot blade play it out there. Less hard work got all sort shot can name it. Even my club friend brought there love it. Best put light rubber not so heavy rubber because blade little bit heavy down fall. It super defense and attack as well hardly make mistake this blade.
Fast defensive blade (Off-) in the same speed category as Butterfly Joo SaeHyuk and Defence II/III/IV. The head of the blade is a little smaller than the above mentioned ones (i.e. 155 x 164 compared to 156 x 165) and also the weight is a little lower (ranging from 86-92g). It is not suited for players who want to play a 'disturbing' game with OX-pimples. It is designed for those players who combine chopping with strong FH-topspin attacks. Feeling is rather hard and stiff. If you prefer softer, flexier and slower (All/All+), go for the regular Victas Koji Matsushita blade. Both are high-quality blades.
