Good blade. Despite being hard it has a lot of flex. Many of gears too, slow on touch strokes but explosive on swinging harder. Sweet spot is big, but the feeling of sweet spot is not as distinct as in most composite blades due to the vibrations that follow after hitting the ball. Vibrations are more pronounced with the new plastic ball. This makes it unsuitable for consistent hitting, however, looping is a dream. Overall, very nice blade. I use JTTAA version, don't know how the regular version plays.
Am using Raja 7 on both sides 1st it was difficult to understand all my shots going out of the table ,as I was using xiom straito off++ before,one has to get used to it,it is slow but needs an effort on smashes ,this blade keeps the ball low during topspin ,if one has the right skill it's your opponent's nightmare it's unforgiving specially against players using short pimps, I wished if yasaka upgraded this blade to 7 pliles or 9 pliles wooden blade in future will be a fast blade and strong on smashes too,nice and decent blade
Solid quality blade. Great for looping close and mid distance. I play cpen, and one reason I like this blade is that it is not heavy and not thick (5.9mm 5 ply) - I found that if rubber + blade is too thick, then it strains my finger on the backside. Yet it is still fast enough for quality offensive shots. This blade is not THAT fast - there are many carbon/7ply out there MUCH faster, but you can be guaranteed to make quality loops (fast or control) from close to mid distance. Still, it has very formidable speed and can still be very deadly with good technique and placement. This blade does lack a little power from further away, but that is probably expected since it is 5 ply, all wood, relatively thin.
With this blade I started playing TT as a penhold grip then I change to Classic grip and still was a good blade the thing that a like more of this blade is the control . Short game keeps the ball low with good spin , block is nice with a tensor rubber . The middle of the blade is hard that gives a faster speed . Overall is a grate blade for the price I recommend the blade for player that like a grate feel for control and offensive style
advanced blade (my favourite)
nice touch, amazing speed, nice control man ! you can play from mid distance or away from table, it has got all speed. good for topspins from both forehand and backhand. dwell time is less unlike allround wood blades. my current blade
Solid blade, like any other blade takes a while to get used to but after that its a sweet ride.
I assembled this racket with a Rakza 7 soft 1.8mm and with a Bluefire M3 2mm. I have 2 months with the blade and at this moment I think it has worked well. I´m learning to use the racket.
Great Blade. Very consistent, with a very good feeling of it's speed and Block in your hand.
This blade is the best I've tried in years. I've been using the Donic Ovtcharov Senso Soft Carbon (penhold) Then I got the Yasaka Ma Lin Extra OFF blade it is so fast. I can play long distance, medium distance and close to the table. I am currently using it with the new Yasaka Rising Dragon on my FH and Yasaka Rakza 9 on my BH. It is the best combination ever. You can loads of speed with loads of control. Every offensive player can use this blade.
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 stroke 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.
