Reviews of Yasaka Extra 7 (5)
Nice tender touch felling as Yasaka Extra(YE) which is rare seen from 7 pile blade. But less dwell time and more speed and power compared to YE. Block is definitely better than YE. Loop is okay but not as easy as traditional 5 piles blade. Counter loop is also good. When close to table the control is a bit hard for me. But it shines at mid/long distance, great control and speed.
This is simply faster version of Yasaka extra all+ blade (a bit less control and a bit more speed).
Meaning: great control and speed :-) Has some vibration. Works nicely with Mark V rubbers.
Dream for recreative attackers.
although it;s rated as an off+, it is more of an off. the speed it's sufficient though...and the control is very,very good. i find it very good for close to the table play. mid-distance play needs a little more work from you...but once you get the hang of it, that's all you're gonna think about:)
Yasaka Gatien extra 7 is a blade that very much combines speed and control. It has pretty good speed, and similar control.
The actual blade is 5 ply wood i think. it is not light, not too heavy. The wood is slightly on the hard side, but its not terribly hard either. What you get from this combination is a formidable blade with high speed and high control.
I found using this blade very pleasurably with offense and defense. I could block very nice shots because i could really control the spin, power, direction of the ball. I thought the speed was maybe a little lacking, but it was sufficient.
I definitely recommend this blade!
