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 is also the most successful player in the Word 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.

Paired with black Rakza 9 on FH and red Rakza 7 soft on BH, its a good blade, fast enough, control are good because the large sweat spot, for balance you may have to consider the weight of the rubber you are choosing due the thin and lightness of the blade, overall its a good blade for you to taste some carbon feels paired with tensor rubbers

This blade is very good. Really fast but with nice control. I use Donic Coppa for FH, so topspins are very spiny but no so fast, because I use only one layer of glue on this blade. I bought this blade for 27 euros (approximately 30$) witch is very good price.

The MLC is one of my favorite blades because it has an excellent mix of speed, control, and feeling. It is very affordable for a carbon blade, and has that old-fashioned, traditional Yasaka aesthetic style to it. Construction: Limba-Soft Wood-Carbon-Ayous-Carbon-Soft Wood-Limba. The inner layer of carbon provides the blade with backbone, that is, enough stiffness and power to satisfy an offensive-minded player's needs. However, the carbon layer is not overpowering, and the blade also retains good control, flexibility, and feeling. In this way, the MLC has some of the pros of carbon, without the cons. This blade is extremely versatile, and works well with most new generation rubbers, including Tenergy 05 (harder spring-sponge), Genius (medium-hard spring-sponge), and Boost TX (harder normal sponge). I would highly recommend this blade for offensive styles because it has an excellent blend of power and feeling. I also recommend it to intermediate-level players, since it will not hinder your game: it is not a blazingly fast blade, nor an extremely slow one. It allows you to take control of the ball and use your own skill to win the point. Overall, this is a great blade for a decent price. reviewer's choice!

Nice n Light. Excellent Value for money. Slight Hollow Sound, & Vibration with the standard Yasaka New Era's , But Found it very nice when replaced FH With a 2.0mm Mark V. I have actually ordered another one for experimenting on as for the money you can't go wrong. More blades mean more rubbers,,
MMM Rubbers :)
