Love this blade! Great balance of spin, speed and consistency!

I like this blade better than viscaria for my game. I am using it with Rozena, both sides.
Key points:
BIgger head makes it head heavy, better for grip.
Feeling is still crisp and responsive but a little more controlable, specialy blocking heavy topspins and fast balls.
Handle is thick enough.

I tried viscaria, tbs old and new, xiom ignito, Primorac carbon, p700 and I am settling for the harimoto along rozena. This combinations gives me a good medium, not too harsh not mushy feel, adequate speed close and medium distances, good spin and control. Totally worth the 135 dollars on Prott.

I am using this blade with Tenergy 05(FH) and Tenergy 05 FX(BH) for 7 months. The backhand is awesome and also the blade generates much spin on both sides.

This very slow blade is ok, even pretty good, but not even close to a very good rating because it is so overpriced, it is ridiculus. Had it been 100 dollars, its a 10. But not at 250 dollars. Go and buy a Nittaku instead, and be happy, feel the feeling.

I hate when someone says it is slow. Yes, it is slow for you who play using soft ESN rubber. Then try hard rubber such as Tenergy 05 hard, Chinese rubber. And you will love it. For me, it is the best ALC blade I ever tried. Better than new product of viscaria,timoboll,zlc,etc. (Old products are awesome btw)

Played one that belongs to a friend. Overpriced as any Butterfly product. I Have had before the composite blades andro treiber z, donic waldner carbon senso and dhs hurricane 301 wich is hinoki, limba and koto outer layer respective and all of these are much better.

"just Derevyanchen"Tested 4 weeks with TENERGY 05, rasanter r42-very low control, low speed,
slow ineffective strikes, the ball does not fly, a rough short game,
bad ball feeling,all elements of the game are sluggish,the most unfortunate board Butterfly
- is thrown money and time. Corbel SK7 is much better!
very heavy weight 91g, due to the large size the large weight of the
rubber.A trap for fools.

Do not trust advertising!!!

The Harimoto blade is a soft and not hard blade blade not faster than Viscaria or timo boll ALC but when it comes to spin it creates tons of spin specially when it comes to your loop and top spins
I recommend to use a Hard sponge rubbers in FH because its a flexible blade, And medium on BH.

Used by Tomokazu Harimoto, this blade is dedicated to his playing style: close-to-the-table controlled placement, with opportunistic power-looping attack, hence coming with limba outer supported by InnerLayer ALC for control and looping, on a larger footprint for close-to-the-table blocking and counterattack. Suggest pairing forehand rubber with harder sponge (i.e. MX-P 50) for power-looping attack and backhand rubber with spin-oriented features (i.e. EL-S) for controlled placement. Balanced, consistent, simplistic design highlighting his family value.

Love this blade, very good construction, weight is not too heavy despite the larger head size, mine weighed 86g. Good feel of the ball just like Innerforce Layer ALC.
