Reviews of Yasaka Dynamix 17 (18)
Excellent anatomical handle, reasonable weight (~90 g), not perfectly polished (many low cost chinese blades have better finishing than Dyn 17). I am using it for only 4-5 hours, with Xiom Vega Europe MAX and Xiom Omega IV Pro MAX, but already got an idea about the beast :-)
Impressions: very good blocking, good+ control (despite the low control rating usually given to this blade alone, the Xiom rubbers are very good WRT control), its an Off (not Off+) grade IMHO, very good at playing at >1m from the table, not a very high throw (also due in part to Xiom rubbers) what makes a bit difficult topspinning chopped balls, namely in the first attack.
Overall, a very good blade (but not an astonishing one...). Bought in a sale at around 50$, so its a steal :-)
UPDATE (May 2015): more than 1 year after the first review (which I leave unchanged) , I have a couple more notes.
I use the blade sometimes when I want to produce power game, but its not my prime choice. The throw angle is quite more higher than I said in the first review (rubbers are older and more beaten now) which means the problem with this assembly is controlling the FH with Omega IV Pro near the table -- I always have to restrain power and amplitude of arm movement in order to land the ball on the table. On the other hand, it is excellent for attacking away from the table.
BH top spin with Vega Euro is a very good attacking weapon.
As the rubbers are a bit bouncy, underspin shots and pushes have to be taken "with care".
Overall I almost keep my ratings (I added 0.1 to overall and 0.5 to control). Dyn 17 is a blade from which its is very easy to extract power game. To tame it in FH, I dare to suggest the use of a softer rubber (Soft, or FX or SF versions of some popular rubbers) instead of the Xiom Omega IV Pro max.

I bought a Dynamix 17 with AN handle weighing 93g. It was the lightest available at TT11. I expected a super stiff and super fast blade like BTY Iolite, which I like so much, but to my surprise Dynamix has some flex, is only medium fast, and has tons of control. Easy to block and place the ball with accuracy. Another good thing about this blade is its gears, I can play a very controlled game but when swing hard the speed is always there. Certainly it has to do with the 17 layers. Im using 2 tension rubbers, Fastarc G1 and Rakza 7 but I suppose chinese rubbers like H3N will make a perfect combination with Dynamix.
Very good blade overall!!! It's a very fast blade but with a very good feel like all wood blade. I really love this blade. Feel so confident using it in a match play, it's fast enough to make a killer shot and also have a very good control and great feel for the ball. The handle is also very comfortable to hold and not slippery. I like how Yasaka makes their handles so much. One of the best blade made by Yasaka!!
This blade is fast, period. The 17 layered construction is great for control and the 6 layers of carbon veneers are perfect for fast attacks and great for blocking too. I use Yasaka Rising Dragon on BH and Yasaka Shining Dragon on FH side and my racket is a killer! If you are a looper, then you'll love this blade too. The price is the best part of this blade, it is very affordable for its built quality (Swedish Made) and its capability. If you want to improve your game, I highly recommend this blade. If you are looking for an affordable and a high quality blade, look no further and get this one.
This blade is good for offensive players. Great for looping. Speed is superb without compromising the "good feel". You will definitely feel the difference of the 17 layers particularly if you are used to the 5 or 7 ply blades. Worth every buck in my opinion.
Great for smashing, needs softer rubber for looping. Great for very advanced player like Lupin.
This blade is simply the best i ever tried. It is the only blade that is extremely fast and at the same time has wonderful control and feeling to it, no matter what your style of play is if you try this blade and get used to it you will love it :D
This is probably the best blade I've used till now. I started playing profesionally abt 10yrs ago. I was using Donic Persson Powerplay then I switched to Donic persson Impulse 7.5 (bad experience). Then I bought a Donic Persson Power Carbon (which is AMAZING ! A must have for an attacking player). After that I switched to one of my other all-time fav brands:Yasaka. I bought a Yasaka Ma Lin Carbon then a Yasaka X1. And FINALLY a few weeks ago I ordered this BEAUTY of a blade.
It's quite true that Dynamix17 gives u the "can't miss" feeling but ONLY if ur already an attacking player who has good control, if not then the ball will fly off the blade surface esp considering the tuned rubbers we use nowadays (Yasaka Pryde, Donic Sonex JP Gold, Butterfly Tenergy etc etc). This blade is DEFINITELY faster than Yasaka X1 (I'm using Yasaka Pryde on FB & BH). The feeling with this blade is WONDERFUL as it feels like an extension of ur playing hand =D I mostly attack from mid-distance & far away. For both attacking styles this is a top notch blade. My game consists of hard BHs & BH drives & FH shots & drives. I just chop when returning serves esp underspin serves then I counter either with FH or BH. Serves r also perfect with this blade as it spins the ball the way u want it EXACTLY how u want it ! Get this blade people, it is a YASAKA masterpiece ! :D
Personally i don't use this blade, but my playing partner does. the improvement in control for him has been remarkable. He actually uses this blade as a hardbat with OX short pips. 729"s work well and you can really "feel" the ball. better than most i've tried. i think the speed rating is lower than advertised, but control is superior. better than most i've tried. great alternative to carbon blades. good luck and cheers from the Bahama's!

This blade gave me the "can't miss feeling" that players get when the paddle and player understand each other and become one. The Dynamix seems to have gears, as it plays well close to the table and away. Weight is around 90grams, which isn't light, but its does compliment a good follow through. Its well balanced and has no senseless vibration. Both medium and soft rubbers work well here. I used Ten 05/Palio -cj and 35 degQuattro combo for fh and bh. I also played some 729 rubbers on it before the glue ban.
