Initially I didn't like this blade because coming from the Stiga Intensity, this was even harder and faster, but the more I used it I found some things that are really nice about it.

The quality of this blade is excellent, no problems with splintering, it also has slight rounded edges.

Even though the blade is hard, it is also very solid and well balanced. It is a bit head heavy, but not as much as dhs blades.

Handle (fl) feels round but relatively thick, so it is pleasant to hold in hand, it is comparable to stiga master handle, stiga handle is a bit thinner but wider.

Regarding power, it's got a bunch of it. It feels like a hard all wood blade and speed is comparable to a normal 7 ply all wood blade. Part of it is that mine weighs 87 grams. It is not a carbon rocket, but for a 5ply all wood it's reasonably fast. I would say around the speed of a clipper.

One big drawback for me is that it's very hard, and even though it goes with any and every rubber, no matter what you put on is gonna suffer from the low dwell time of the blade. It makes blocking and countering absolutely flawless but lifting backspin and slow topspin shots are a bit tough to get right.

Overall a good blade for the player that stays close to the table and counters or blocks. Mid distance power isn't lacking but high level technique is required.

Not for beginners as the blade can punish bad technique, but intermediates with make good use of it.
