Reviews of Yasaka Max Carbon 3D - Chinese Penhold (11)
My YMC3D sucked 95grs, and was varnished in tt11, initially I started I used DHS hurricane 3neo commercial version and Skyline 3 Neo, I was a little heavy around 200grs, but the most complicated thing was to adapt to the anatomical handle, very bad choice for my small hand, for 3 months I left the same configuration. Then I ventured to faster rubbers, in the FH the GoldArc 8 of 47 and in the BH a joola rhyzer 43. I improved my punches and crashes a lot.
It's a blade Very consistent, fast and with a control Extraordinary, it is rigid with little vibration but a great sweet spot.
But its hardness and speed, and the short time of tenure, do not allow me to generate enough rotation in both the right topspin and the backhand. Equally my serves I can't make them as short as I want.
I recommend it for those who want a carbon blade, fast with decent control, and great sweet spot, that plays at medium distance and actively blocks.
I want to try something slower and with more feeling, that helps me more to the juice near the table and with more possibilities of rotation, and certainly with an FL handle, if I do not convince myself I will ask another Max charcoal 3d.
I love this 9-layer Blade!!
I bought the ST version but should have bought the FL. I had DHS hurricane 3 on both sides .With that setup, it was really fun to loop with from close to mid distance,but not so great from further. It has good control and speed. Felt more like an OFF than Off+. I love it...gonna get me the FL soon.
What I like with this blade is the consistency in blocking( passive or active blocking. You can loop, flat kills and spin the ball so strong. Kinda heavy but very easy to use. I tried several blades like TB alc, Viscaria, ZJ szlc, andro treiber z, Xiom Vega Tour,etc but still keep coming back to my yasaka max 3d. You can do all kinds of shots. Just try guys. If your rating is 1400 up you can control this beast.
This blade plays great with hard sponge rubbers dont use the soft sponge rubbers.This blade is excellent in blocking with average throw angle so all ur blocks cross the net and fall in opponents half consistently.During a game over a point i was able to block 10 smashes in a row after i won the point my opponent came to look at my blade and was shocked as my returns were precise on the table at appropriate spots making life hell for the opponent.There is a japanese article on blades with sponge combinations and they are correct,this blade works great with DHS 3 neo and DHS skyline or any other tacky chinese rubber with hard sponge.Blade is heavy around 94 gms so if use the above rubbers use 2.1 ur weight comes close to 190 gms moderately heavy but u will like the control its perfect close to net.Dwell time is 2-3/10 and with chinese rubbers as above it increases to 4/10.So u need to have great technique with this rubber.If u can loop with this blade u can loop with any
other blade.This blade has improved by looping skills and topspin skills as i had to make a lot of effort to play those shots.Best combo is to find a hard sponge tacky chinese or japanese rubber with low weight ,high throw angle (729 battle 2/sanwei I light /729 yudo )and boost it with revolution booster which adds minimal weight to rubber (1 to 2 gm) and use it.Please use this with the above rubbers or u willnot like this blade.This blade is not for starters or intermediates,only for amateurs and
seasoned player with USAtt rankings more than 1400 .Anybody below this rank dont buy and waste ur money as u will not like it.What i liked about this blade is the control and blocking its amazing and u will love the despair look on ur opponents face.
State of the art product at a very affordable price. This blade has a very large sweet spot, perfect for looping and counter attacks, great for blocking too. I have used the Dynamix 17, they are of the same caliber but Max Carbon 3D is slightly better in my opinion. I have fast rubbers on both sides; the Rakza 9 on FH and Valmo on the BH and it is a killer of a racket overall. The speed is unreal, the control is reasonable and spin is above average, a bit on the heavy side but an awesome blade overall. Highly recommended for offensive/attack playing style.
Fantastic Blade! The perfect combination is this Blade with a soft Rubber (with high throw angle)! Very fast, good control and well done..
My first carbon blade that was setup with Rakza 9 FH & Mark V BH. It was really, really fast! Had challenges controlling it as I wasn't used to it at the beginning. I'm an EJ, cycled through many blades thereafter Butterfly Amultart, Garaydia T5000, Marcos Freitas, Stiga Infinity V Diamond Touch, Sense 7.6, Arctic Wood, Andro Treiber Z, Ligna Off+ & Dynamix 17 to name a few but in the end I would still pickup my Max 3D without a second thought. Switched both FH BH rubbers to DHS 3 Neo 2.0. I've never felt better. I get the ball where I want on the table every single time and 9 of 10 lands exactly spot on. Great for blocks, flicks. I love attack game and its great! Though chinese rubbers need more strength but its putting my game in shape. I can say that I have full control of this blade now after a year's use. I can generate crazy spin and send the balls like a fiery bullet where my club mates have difficulties in returning. So, adequately priced compared to all my other blades, You can't go wrong with this blade. Touch feel is good due to the 3D pleats, no nasty vibrations. My other fav blade is the Amultart.
This blade feels like a rock or rocket. I'm using 2.0mm Rakza7 both sides. After getting used to it, I was able to get better control. No flex on this blade & no dwell time either. But I have the skill to still spin the ball. Weight came in at 102g, approx 12g over the stated average. Therefore, smashes are very fast. In the near future, I will try a softer sponge.
