Wonderful. Good if you have speedy rubbers! Really good spin on this, and the control is world class.

I would rate this wood as off-, I used it in version 82gm st, very pretty, quite control, very good feeling, the handle is comfortable, the speed of this wood felt very close to Korbel, but less rigid with better feeling and permanence, It is a very nice wood, the loop and the service is very rotating and aggressive, with hard and fast medium angle rubbers like rakza 7, mxp, mxs, vega pro, rasanter r47, you will have a dangerous weapon.

ten years ago I started to play table tennis with a clone of YE- Yinhe W6. later I found used Yasaka Extra 3d and it was the blade that helps me a lot to develop correct technique. next I start buying faster and faster blades but none of them suits me like good old Yasaka Extra. When I saw renewed Yasaka Sweden Extra I bought it immediately and sold all the other stuff. now I love the game again

Slow compared to all my other blades, but can be compensated for by pairing it with faster rubbers. Tried both AK47 Red and DHS GoldArc 8 50 MAX on it, and the speed is still good. Feel and control is very good. I couldn't use the DHS GoldArc 8 50 MAX on my other blades, but could on this one. My CPEN weighed in 79.6 grams.

Well built, good control, great dwell time, medium sweet spot, good weight (84g+-). Has enough speed, a good ALL~ALL+ blade. Comparing to the PG-7 it has more control, more dwell time, better sweet spot, about same weight. A little less speed. Its a great 5 ply blade to train your technique.

Used it with DHS GoldArc 8 47.5 MAX on FH and BH. Just amazing. Now I'm using with Andro R37 on FH and Andro R42 on BH to get better dwell time and control to train my techinque. Also amazing.

I really liked this blade, probably will keep this for a long time.

Seriously a amazing blade for the money. I've tried much more expensive blades like the Zhang Jike Super, Timo Boll and the Viscaria and various andro blades and I can say this stands among them (If looping is your style).
The is a very flexy blade with lots of feeling and some vibrations. I paired it with hurricane on the FH and MX-P on the backhand and it does well with both soft and hard rubbers. I'd recommend against this blade if you love to slap or just drive but for everyone else it's amazing. The dwell and contact you get with hard rubbers is just feels right. Highly recommend.

The description is misleading – this blade comes not sealed from the factory! Had to order lacquer separately...

Flared handle is excellent. Well balanced blade.
I paired it with Yasaka Mark V first for a few months, then with Mark V HPS.
With Mark V the short game on the board was excellent.
With Mark V HPS, there's a power and control upgrade comparatively. Plenty of gears in this combo. Looping, Counterhitting, blocking, serving are all good. Pushing and cutting take a little time, but can be done well too.
I could practice and play all kinds of shots from up to 1.5 m from the table.
This is an ideal combination for those upgrading from beginner to intermediate level of play.

** I can call this a PERFECT blade **

Review: Ok, after having tried a few rubbers and blades, while considering myself an intermediate/advanced player, I knew there was SOMETHING WRONG with all rackets I've had so far, and after researching and reading many comments, I decided to opt for this blade. Chose Yasaka Mark V Soft (2mm) for my forehand and Yasaka Rakza 7 soft (2mm) for my backhand. People, I am a VERY HAPPY camper! This blade rocks (of course with the help of rubbers), but knowing that 80% of the emphasis should be on choosing the right blade, I couldn't be happier. I am going to say something here that is going to amuse you all and make some of you laugh, but it doesn't matter, I have to say it: This racket is TEACHING me where my technique is wrong!!! It is so perfectly balanced that you can tell right from the start what you are doing wrong! Is my racket the "fastest"? No! Is it the spiniest? No, is it the most controllable racket? No, BUT, it has the whole package in it; Great spin, great control, great all-round blade and racket.
Hope this helps.
Cheers.

Have Played Stiga classic, hurricane Long 5, Stiga Celero Wood, and tried others, however i must say this is a great Blade. I see nothing wrong with it. Can be used for beginners and better players, just change to thicker, harder and faster rubber. Gives some feedback, flexes when looping, Good touch, still feels solid enough to block well and smash. Recommended!

This is now what I am using right now and the control for me is amazing. Using Tibhar MX-S on my FH and Tenergy 64FX on my BH. 83g is my blade weight. This is a very good all around blade when developing your stroke.

After coming back from 15-year TT hiatus I started with my old Butterfly Primorac OFF- with Rozena and DHS H3Neo both in max but I was feeling it's not the best control to speed ratio for me and I want to try something new for poly ball and different game after all these years. Like coming back to basics, work on technique, footwork for every stroke and have just maximal feel and control in the blade. After thinking about Stiga's Allround Classic and similar pieces I got great deal (30% off) on this Yasaka and boy I don't regret a second! Knowing how well it feels in short game, on serve and looping from short/mid distance I would even pay twice the list price. The match with Yasaka Rising Dragon on FH (2.0mm sponge) and Yasaka Rakza 7 soft on BH (2.0mm sponge) is almost perfect for me and the only weaker point I found so far is lack of power from very long distance. Skylobs are pretty accurate but if I want to counterattack or I'm too afraid to play it won't kick the ball all the way on the other side. But I'm fine with it for now, blade allows me to put all the power to finishing shots in proper distance and I would say it's even good learning tool for beginners. When I get my Bfly Primo OFF- back in hand it feels kind of dead in short game and I stay with YSE (sure, it can be only bad rubber combination, but I don't have time and money to test twenty set-ups). The only reason why I will probably change again one day is the speed. Last word about another difference I noticed when comparing to several Butterfly/Stiga/Donic blades I've seen: this Yasaka has extremely well sealed finish and overall craftsmanship is excellent. Big surprise for me and I will definitely try another Yasaka blade in the future.

Update for number-lovers:
- Head is h/w 155mm x 150mm
- Weight is 84g (FL handle version)
- Thickness seems to be 5.6mm (but I don't have sub-mm meter so take it with margin)

The Yasaka Sweden Extra is a terrific All+ 5 Ply wood blade with great feel and control. Close to the table play is terrific and with the right rubbers and generating your own power mid distance play is good too. If you are a new or developing player on a budget I highly recommend this blade. It's my favorite all wood blade is this speed category along with the Nittaku Violin for a fraction of its price. Great blade, great value.

Is the best blade considering the quality/price you get (amazing control/spin/felling but not enough power and medium sweet spot which cause some times a little bit of vibrations. The blade is perfect for close to the table game and not far or mid-distance from the table b/c the lack of power oblige you to hit very hard and loosing control/feeling.

Review by junkim for Yasaka Sweden Extra on January 21, 2017
I'm an average player and I paired this blade (straight handle) with Rakza 7, 2.0, on both sides. Its a great combination and I'm a little mad at myself that I didn't buy this paddle sooner. Its very versatile and my favorite part is its ability to loop with massive spin.
