The Ma Lin Carbon is the blade currently used by MA Lin,who appreciates the ease with which the blade can block and loop with great power.

For an offensive blade in this category, there is remarkably little vibration thanks to the high quality of the wood and the process used to join the wood and the carbon.

Making a table tennis blade is a craft.
A skilled blade maker must be able to combine the various types of wood optimally, work the materials without losing the properties of the wood, ensure perfect accuracy in the tiniest details and possess a "feel" for wood.

This craft should be combined with modern knowledge to be able to develop blades of the absolute highest standards.
YASAKA's blades are the result of collaboration between professionals: the blade maker and the most experienced players and coaches in the world.

All YASAKA blades are developed and produced in Sweden, by an experienced, highly motivated and quality-conscious workforce, operating in facilities equipped with the latest wood processing machines.

The Yasaka player, Ma Lin has regained the number 1 position in the ITTF world ranking.

Ma Lin has played in 4 of this years Pro Tour tournaments and he is now the leader in the battle for points.

In February Ma Lin won the Qatar Open and was runner up in the Kuwait Open.
Ma Lin is also the most successful player in the World Cup.

In October 2006 Ma Lin captured his fourth victory in this prestigious event. No other player has ever won the World Cup more than twice.
In 1998 Ma Lin first entered the 'top ten' in the World Ranking, and since then has been among the real World Class players.

As a Junior Ma Lin chose to play with a Yasaka blade. With the Yasaka Extra he found a blade not only with enough speed and power, but also with good ball 'feel',so important in returns and blocks.Together with the Yasaka technicians Ma Lin worked to develop the Ma Lin Carbon blade.

Reviews Summary

✨ AI-generated summary of customer reviews.

Pros

  • The MLC blade is praised for its excellent mix of speed, control, and feeling, making it a versatile choice for different playing styles. It is also affordable for a carbon blade and has a traditional Yasaka aesthetic style. The inner layer of carbon provides the blade with enough stiffness and power to satisfy an offensive-minded player's needs without overpowering, retaining good control, flexibility, and feeling.
  • The blade is highly recommended for offensive styles and intermediate-level players due to its excellent blend of power and feeling. It is not extremely fast nor slow, allowing players to take control of the ball and use their own skill to win the point. It is also compatible with most new generation rubbers, making it a versatile choice for different players.
  • Despite the presence of two carbon layers, the blade requires effort to loop with reasonable speed. This hollow feeling and vibration increase control but impair the feeling of the ball. However, it is not suitable with thick rubbers and is picky about rubbers, suggesting tensor rubbers as they allow more feel on the blade.

Cons

  • The anatomical handle of the blade can leave your hand cramping after playing for a couple of hours straight. Additionally, care must be taken when removing edge tape because flakes of the inner layer of the blade can come off, indicating potential durability issues.
  • Some users found the blade too light and thin, with a poor grip that requires a lot of strength to prevent vibration. This could make it less suitable for players who prefer a heavier, more solid feel.
  • Despite its good control and speed, some players found it hard to get good dwell time with this blade, regardless of the type of rubber used. This could make it less suitable for players who rely on dwell time for their playing style. It was suggested that this blade is better suited for a hitting playstyle or for use with short pips.

Not a fan of the blade that I received. Found it was very hard to get good dwell time compared to other blades. No matter the type of rubber. I did find this was good with short pips or a hitting playstyle.

Guess this blade is underrated. Have tested over 300 blades. Ma Lin Carbon is a very good blade for me as elder mid class player. Very controlled and spinny with Fastarc G-1 and for me fast enough when necessary. Also very forgiving and fits well for ALL- play. Give it a try

(FH: Rakza 9 2.0mm BH: Rasanter R47 2.0)

I switched to this blade from a Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive and immediately noticed an increase in speed. The obvious tradeoff is the decrease in control; blocking is much more difficult with this blade. I would highly recommend this blade for intermediate players who enjoy fast, active play.

This was my first custom made racket w Donic barracuda (dont remember the sponge thickness) both sides. I came from a crappy kinson premade bat btw. It was so much heavier but a easy to get used to after a week or two. I actually learnt how to lift backspin on both FH and BH on this blade. Great for begginers but I would reccomend a evolution mxp for FH insteak of a barracuda (youll see why when u play). But barracuda on Bh is great. I also heard sriver on both sides was reccomended but Im not sure because I havent tried that but sriver is a good transition into the real tenergy and dignics rubbers that Im using now so both combos r fine. More about the blade: You HAVE to apply a protection tale around the blade edge because the side wood is quite fragile.
