      • Not enough dwell
      Very nice blade , easy to play with . Great Speed / Control ratio. Hinoki provide a good soft feeling and enough power / spin when needed. Ideal for players who like to spin, not so good for flat hitters. Not very happy about the quality, apart from the fact that it needs sanding that u wouldnt expect from a 220 euro blade, my blade's handle needs glueing after 2 months without being hit or mistreated in any way.

      5.00 Fastest in the Vega Series

      • Needs sanding
      While the Vega Pro and Euro reside in the OFF-/OFF range, this blade is definitely OFF and has a lower trajectory on blocks and loops, though not by much. The honoring outer gives it and amount of feeling similar to the Pro and more speed. Just about everything I said about the Pro applies here given the similarities in blade and handle design. While Xiom advertises this as all hinoki plus the composites, I am skeptical and think it is likely only the outer ply that is hinoki and different from the other Vega blades. The hinoki grab on my blade is not as strong as I have felt in other hinoki blades likely in part due to how things the outer ply is. That said, the blade has good feeling and I think it will serve people who want to play an all round game with a faster blade well. I have used it in the straight handle - initially I used it with Baracuda and have recently mostly used it with Next Karis. Because faster blades tend to be more expensive as well as the slightly higher cost of hinoki, this blade is more expensive than the Pro and the Euro. But it is money well spent if you want the extra speed and lower arc. I currently like the control and arc of the Pro for my technique and still use it as my main blade but can use this as well with barely a change in technique.

      5.00 Exeptional product - The search is over
      • High Controll
      • Low Weight
      • Stiff

      Exceptional new blade from XIOM. High Quality craftmenship and perfect finish.

      The blade combines the best of both worlds (All wood and composites). It has the touch and good feedback from an all wood blade, combined with the larger sweet spot, low weight, stiffness and lower throw of a carbon blade.
      The most outstanding feature is the high controll. I never played a blade that handles linke an ALL+ in passive play (serve, block, short play), but gets into speed as soon as you start looping and driving or aggressivly pushing. It has enough speed to be played in half distance, but also huge controll, when played close to the table.

      I found MY blade after nearly testing 20-30 blades over the past 6 years.
