Innovative topspin weapon by “QUAD” technology.
ZETRO QUAD is a blade for topspin. Aiming of ZETRO QUAD is purely the improvement of the ability of topspin. “QUAD” means our innovative technology of using four layers of artificial materials sophisticatedly. Zylon fiber which directly placed under top layers increases the ability of grabbing ball. Soft carbon fiber under middle layers adjusts overall performance, and at the same time reduces the unnatural feel which is the shortcoming of Zylon fiber. Top layer of selected KISO HINOKI guarantees comfortable feel. The result is great ability of topspin. Making heavy topspin is effortless, and even secure. Players will always be able to take initiative of their game by effective preparatory topspin attack, and keep it by continuous topspin from any distance.

A solid offensive blade, but personally for me it was lacking in comfort. It is on average heavier, mine was 91g. I found after using this blade that I would prefer lighter blades. The weight felt even heavier due to the handle, which I didn't find very comfortable. It's on the smaller side and has a rectangular shape - as opposed to oval shaped. My total paddle weight with Tibhar EL-P max and T05FX 1.9 was 186g (with grip tape), but felt much heavier than that and head heavy. Just one thing to keep in mind - some players may even prefer this! Other than comfort, this blade is great for a power offensive game, very strong for topspin play. It is quite thick and with the zylon you won't get a lot of feel or vibration, but it is still quite good in the short game. What you do get is good power and speed. Very secure mid to long distance from the table.
Intrigued by its design & use of Kiso Hinoki/ZLC.I could just not resist but I tryed before buying.Most of my many blades are all wood Limba.So Hinoki is a new wood to me.I am not disapointed at all and that famous feel is REAL.Zetro Quad is precise with excellent feel,soft with good dwell ,light vibrations in no way affecting control.7mm thickness gives the blade great blocking and stability.Quickly Zetro Quad became one of my trusted blades besides Clipper and Hybrid Wood NCT.
As a looper, I was searching for more speed with very good control/touch - the impossible, as we all are. The TSP balsas are excellent and gave me almost what I searched for. The 6.5 & 8.5 gave the speed & penetration of shot right for me, while the slightly slower TSP Black balsa 7.0 gave excellent control.
The Xiom Zetro Quad combines the two, perfect for what I was looking for.
Having tried several Xiom blades, they are well crafted and very high on control and feel. My experience was they all play slower than most ratings suggest, so aim slightly faster than you think you are looking for.
Other blades tried recently were:
Butterfly Primorac - lovely allround bat but too slow for me.
Butterfly Michael Maze - way faster than rated here and no control at all! Mad hitter's blade.
Xiom Vega Pro & Novus - lovely feel and All or All+ speeds.
In addition, I was able to practise yesterday with the Butterfly Boll ALC and the Xiom Stradivarius. The ALC felt a fraction quicker off the blade with loop, otherwise both were vitually identical in feel and speed to the Zetro Quad.
Using Bluefire M1 and Rakza 7 in 2mm both sides. It is very thick... Great blade for looping and blocking is good but one disadvantage is feeling. I switched from a Yasaka extra blade which was all wood and slower than this. After the switch i noticed the feedback I got was very dull compared to an all wood blade, but you can get used to it pretty quickly.
Update: Pushing game is weak with this blade. Angle and power when pushing needs to be adjusted.
It's verry consistant blade to perform spin and loopping with speed and excellent control. Smash to kill the opponent also easy to perform. Combine with P7 adidas and T80 it's good match combination, overall lovely so much this blade. One of famous blade manufacture by Xiom. Great...!!
Blade 1 XZQ 84grm weight (light)
Rubber : FH P7. BH T80 all max
Blade 2 Adidas carbon strike
Rubber : FH Stiga boost TC. BH P5 all max
Quite stiff as it is pretty thick, but really soft thanks to the hinoki outer ply. This blade is excellent for both looping and countering : you can really make the ball spin a lot thanks to its softness (and, I think, the Zylon underneath the outer ply) and it's quite high throw angle, but it's also really good for blocking. It's quite fast (let's say OFF), but really easy to control over the table, especially in short game, it can "grab" the ball and allow you to drop it right behind the net.
I still need to totally get used to it on my FH, especially for more powerful shots, but it's a really good OFF blade if you rely a lot on looping.
I like how consistent the reviews are for this blade and I agree with 95% of the reviewers. My zetro weighed in at 89g with 6.9mm thickness. It's stiff, and has a soft/dull feel (little to no vibration). It doesnt flex much (just a lil), but you get enough vibration for a lil feedback. Its not the fastest blade but it fits my style because i play close to mid distance. The dwell on this is amazing with medium/hard rubbers. Andro powergrip and t05 are good FH, and i like donic bluefire m3 for BH.
At first, I bought the Xiom Zetro Quad because it looked so nice that I had to make it mine.
After about 2 years of playing with it, I've begun to love this blade. and I will explain why.
The Zetro Quad is a carbon blade, with Zylon Carbon. Generally, carbon blades are known for making the blade lighter and faster but on the flipside, losing feel/dwell time and control.
What I've found though, is that the XZQ behaves like both wood and carbon blades, it has a remarkable wood-like amount of feel and dwell time, resulting in a ridiculous amount of spin and perfect control. On the other hand, it also powers the ball very well, as well as coming in very light- mine was only 86g. 7mm blade for 86g is pretty good.
It has been said that this blade is a loopers' dream and I can most definitely confirm this! The ZXQ, with its controllable carbon and hinoki layer results in the ball sinking into the wood resulting in control, as well as powerful shots. I use Xiom Omega IV Europe Max both sides and it is very controllable as well as fast enough to kill shots.
My only downside to this blade is that the edges are a little sharp so they require sanding, and it's a little expensive. For what it is though, the XZQ is on par with the top Butterfly blades for less than half the price.
