This blade is catalogued by Buttlefly as a "Medium speed" blade, but actually, as one would expect from a T5000 blade its fast. Ok, not that fast as others T500 blades like Primorac Carbon, Schlager, etc but it still has a decent speed, a little less than Timo Boll Spirit. It has a big head but its not head heavy, it doesnt feels heavy at all, its quite soft and controllable, maybe not as good for looping like other blades but still ok (one of the best of the T5000 series) The composition is: Koto - T5000 - Ayous - T5000 - Koto
