One of best 5ply allwood off blade ever. This blade is a spin moster with very very good feeling. More powerfull than my Innerforce AL/ALC with better touch. Only the sweet spot is a bit smaller than composite blade but its still pretty decent thanks to Walnut top ply and 6mm tickness.
Chose this blade around 88-90gr, the lighter ones around 82-85gr may feel hollow.
I don't see any lose of power compared to my 869gr viscaria but the 5ply allwood feeling is just the best in table tennis. Dwell time is long, the blade vibes so nicely on every single shot, its a plessure to play with.
I paired it with M1 turbo/M1/M2 and every time it was very good.
On of the best blade I ever played for blocks also.
But once again, the main feature of this blade is the feel/touch.
I own 12+ butterfly composite blades and since I've tried the YEO, I stick with it. Power + dwell time + great feel, YEO offers all of this while being a spin monster.
I ordered a JTTAA one around 88-90gr to see if it can be even better and to get a backup. I'm looking forward to Nexy Zealot also which seems to be the Nexy version of YEO.
The blade balance is great also, thats also why I prefer the YEO to Stiga Rosewwod V, Ebenholz 5 and Emerald VPS and the YEO is more powerfull also (haven't tried rosewood xo) while being more "easy" to use in short game.
And the other best thing about this blade : a fair price for a premium quality finish.
I still can't believe the price, around 45 in Europe, and you can find the JTTAA version for around 60. A professionnal version for chinese market also exists, usuall price is about 350 but I can get them for around 130 and I might consider it.
YEO good combination for me with Tenergy 05 on FH and Boost TS on BH. Spin is delicious like eat a cake hehehe.. about the control absolutely good for me..not to fast like a carbon but you will got feeling during your game. Very Recommended Blade. and very important is the price not too expensive :)
Great all wood blade. Its fast but not too fast, has great control and stiffness and hardness are good for the attacking style. Cheap and good quality. Comfortable FL handle. Coming from korbel/primorac this is an upgrade (a better upgrade).
nice powerfull offensive blade. its a little bit stiffer for my taste but i'll adjust to it for sure. you really need to have proper technics of loop strokes to produce good topspin and lift chopped balls. where this blade really shines is fast smash/drive/counterloop close to the table! it might be your weapon of mass destruction if you can handle it .)
Blade: Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive (J.T.T.A.A ver) CS
FH: Xiom Omega V Tour DF (max)
BH: Butterfly Solcion (1.9)
From all of my experience with TT blades, I used to used both carbon and all wood blades from many famous brand (DHS, Yasaka, Stiga, Xiom and Butterfly), yet I still find this blade is one of the most controlable blade yet powerful enough to finish point on close-medium distance to table plays. Im not sure how much weight mine is but it is surely lighter than Stiga Clipper WRB and it is more thinner. It is a bit thicker than Stiga Ebenholz V. However, it is more solid and has more touch. With my expereinced with this blades more than 6 months. I can safely say that it is very consistant blade that you can easily control ball placement on the table with any stroke (assuming that you got enough training). My BH rpb and FH opening loop rarely miss and it packs a lot of punch to finish point. Smashing is good but not good as those 7 plys or carbon but better than average 5 plys. It offers solid touch on push and service. Blocking is very consistant. However I never plays chop st!
roke as Cpen user, so I cannot really comment on that. To sum up, I think this blade is suitable on close to middle distance to table plays for offensive to control loopers. In addition, I think the price tags on this blade is reasonable to that now I buy 2 more blades for replacement.
Very nice blade. It allows you to have a good feel! No regrets buying this! The weight isn't very consistent but i took one which was 88g. Heavy but powerful. I could still respond to RPB fairly quickly. Blade vibrates a little but overall the perfect setup for me. Paired it with the new Yasaka Rising Dragon Max as FH and Yasaka Raksa 7 soft Max as BH. The only issue is the workmanship isn't as great as Nittaku blades.
Nice blade. Perfect for blocking because of tis stiffness and hardness but, amazingly, it's very very good for topspin. Speed is comparable to TB Spirit but the all-wood feeling of YEO is much better. Overall is a very good blade, stable and predictable, good for every kind of strokes. It's not hard to understand why it's one of the all time best all wood blades. Highly recommended!
I give this blade a 10/10 because i like it a lot. My YEO weights about 85 grams and i pair it with a Rakza 7 (max) and M2 (max).
It's kinda heavy for the first sessions, but i got used to it and i feel it benefits my looping/driving techniques.
I used to make a poor drive style, making the whole movement very wrong (finishing the drive with my arm close to my shoulder). A lot of mess. With YEO i got a more right style.
The sweetspot is huge, lots of power. Great feeling. Short game and blocking is Ok, but it's a blade to mainly loop/drive! A great 5ply from yasaka!
As everyone mention, the feeling. The feeling with this blade is amazing, i cant describe.
Sweetspot is almost entire blade. Mine is 87g.
Fast, medium/hard bit of flexure.
Control is the best ive tested. 9.5 for sure.
I use with Rakza7 max both sides.
I can produce monstruous spin in both slow loop or loop drive shots.My serve is very damaging. The only problem i have is flat hits but i think its more due technic/rubber than this beautiful blade.
I recommend to anyone who like to play until 2m of table, more than that i think will lack some power.
