Very balanced blade, medium speed, light flexion, medium hard outer layer but not too much, wide sweet spot, handle st comfortable, great feeling, good with all types of rubbers, highly recommended for intermediate and advanced level, easy blocking, topspin, backspin , good spin, and service, one of the best 5 layers.

I have developed my technique with this blade. There's nothing missing on this blade. Have enough flexibility for spin. There's enough hardness for the smash. Good level of control, ball feeling is also fine. has a slight vibration. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to improve the game if you are mid-level. YEO deserves fame.I think, the king of five-layer blades.

YEO or YMLEO is popular 5-ply all-wood blade from Yasaka, made in Sweden. Due to a huge popularity I dare to say it is a classic. It has a little harder touch because of walnut surface layer, still providing enough feedback. Not very stiff, well balanced. Sweetspot is above average. Suitable for close and play away from the table, for both celluloid 40 and new plastic 40+ ball. Composition: walnut-spruce-ayous-spruce-walnut, 6mm thick. Very well made. My blade measures 88g. ST handle is very comfortable as well as is FL. In short: do it all blade, suitable also for beginners (if they want to stick to it). Did I mention inexpensive, too?

YEO is one of the best 5plys for a reason.
Its merits lie in its linearity and feeling provided by hard outer ply and soft core: superb short game, easy ball placement and great range of speeds. Stiffness allows for stable passive blocking. The demerits are:
-lack of catapult away from the table, as power it has plenty, but is too physically demanding for continuous attack
-hardness of outer ply forces you to be precise, else shot quality suffers/ball goes long

Overall excellent blade for developing. Too demanding for 40+, 7plys offer more catapult.

Personnaly, I prefer, by much, the old Gatien Extra, and the Old Gatien Extra 3D. These woods were rated ALL Around, and the seems faster to me than this blade, supposed to be offensive. We have to try to find what we lilke, and there is no match between this blade and me.

It bounces and sounds not right. the actual paddle doesn't even look exactly like the picture shown on the website. Did I get a fake one? not sure. Try to avoid it.

This blade made my game increase a lot in a short period of time. I use the CPEN version (JTTA) paired with a XIOM OMEGA V Europe 2.0 on FH and a Friendship Super Soft 2.2 on BH, I think its a good combination, maybe a little heavy. Looping is very easy with this setup and it makes a very good spin too, blocking is perfect. If you have good defensive skills but like to atack with excelent speed and spin, here is the ideal blade, it has a perfect balance betwen power and control. You can even find better blades in the market, but it will cost 2 ou 3 times the price.

Good price, good quality allwood blade. My defensive skill went up a lot! First time using YEO, I struggled a little attacking... Speed is quite slow, but that was because I did my stroke / loop wrongly... After constant learning and improvement... I really like this blade! Lightweight blade, along with H8 (FH) and Vega Pro (BH), I feel I've progressed a lot, the percentage of the ball went in increased a lot, chopping is also possible. Looping becomes easier, the feeling is good. I think this blade is one of the best 5 ply allwood blade for a long time...

If you play like Ma Lin or Xu Xin this is the blade. For all-put close-to-the-table attacker or away-from-the-table power loopers. In short, power players with extreme stroke to take full advantage.

Great blade, I have been using this since day one and its been very performing with fast and precise attack. Very durable so far even after a few episode of collision. Well made.

I've been playing with the CPEN version of this blade, and I must say I'm impressed. It's a very good blade overall and I understand why it's considered a classic by many players.

It's powerful but not too bouncy, you need to generate the speed yourself to get a faster ball. As a consequence, control is really good for an offensive blade (I'd say lower end of OFF blades). The blade is stiff enough but not too stiff (making it versatile, good in block/counter but still good in topspin play as well), it's medium hard but not that hard... it's hard to describe, really. It's taken me a long time to try this blade, I was afraid that it would have too "hard" a feeling for my taste (versatile topspin player, favoring limba-outer blades most of the time)... but it doesn't, and even though the external ply is hard, it does not feel that way. If you like only soft and flexy blades, this one is not for you, but if you don't mind a reasonably stiff / hard blade and hesitate, don't.

Only thing to be aware of, for me : it has a medium-throw and is really "direct", powerful and therefore not forgiving, so it's not the best option if you like to vary a lot, with variations of spin and speed. But if you play mostly powerful attacks and counters, then it's made for this and really shines.

frankly to say this blade is a very good in all its aspects but the disadvantage of this blade is it is not still crafted as per expectations, i used the yasaka rakza7 on both sides but there were problems getting the ball on the table, so i tried using short pips on Fh spectol it was difficult too, then i purchased the aruna off+ where the handle is flared and flexible for Fh & Bh but was still not satisfied so i purchased the DHS CW-C blade which is a nice blade and heavy has a big head & face and nicely well crafted handle & good performance on the table , so after my observation & conclusion I came to know that yasaka malin has a short handle and the head & face in a bit small, so i added a piece of extra 6mm wood to the handle to make it a bit long and sanded the handle to fit my hand exactly, now i can topspin with short pips easily good control and now i am trying to put DHS skyline neo 3 on it , this blade is a very good blade but craftsmanship is a bit poor so players have no idea why they cant get good power on this blade, i figured it out after a year now this blade performance in really deadly, i hope in the long run yasaka improves and upgrade this blade with a beautiful head & a bit bigger face like Dhs & a flared handle like those of stiga blade, i recommend this blade for players of all types

King of control. Very balanced blade. Large sweet spot. Good in everything but exceed in control. Soft and flex blade, so easy to drive and spin. The only blade that I felt redress Skyline Neo TG3 weakness in control, giving it many gears. But if you want speed, you will need a very fast rubber, like Donic Blue P1 Turbo. Even with P1 turbo control is there.
Rewiew for CP JTTA version. Mine has 91gr, so it's heavy. Good for smash, but has not the same feeling and power for smash like 1 ply hinoki.

Mine is 87g pairing with Rakza 9 & 7 soft, I think this a very good all wood offensive blade with a reasonable price, if you are an offensive minded style of play, get use to it with this blade before upgrading with more speedy & less control blade. After all this the legendary YEO blade.. a must have blade ^^

Review by supaflyqtpie (Verified Customer) for Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive on December 28, 2016
Solid 5 ply wood blade. This is on the stiffer/harder side of the spectrum for a wood blade, so the bounce is quicker because of less dwell, and overall speed is a good (for 5 ply wood). Decent loops and good counter hitting, but it loses power with distance away from table, so looping mid distance takes more effort. Very good paired with modern medium/medium-hard rubbers.

My blade of choice at the moment. I have a JTTA approved version. The straight handle is just perfect for my large hands. The blade feels solid without unwanted vibrations. Stroke feedback is very good, speed and control are well balanced and can be tuned by choice of rubber. Highly recommended for intermediate level.
