+ Description
The Ma Lin Extra Offensive has been developed by Yasaka to add a touch more speed than the popular Yasaka Offensive blade. This blade has an improved sweetspot and speed. The middle veneer is a slight bit thicker and harder which adds to the power of the blade.
Very Good

    5.00 Good All-Wood Mix Style Blade !!!
    • All-Wood Feel
    • Fast and Control
    • 3rd Ball Attacks
    • Hitting
    Well, I buy this blade cuz of its price and because of my amazement to this blade. I buy it with the Xiom Omega V Euro on FH and Stiga Airoc Astro S on BH (RPB). All of the rubbers are in max thickness. I Bought my blade for $60 (Rp. 700.000 in Indonesia). Its weight is around 84-86g. I bought the penhold version of the blade. Enjoy the review.

    FH Topspin : Really great !!! Dwells much that creates a lot of spin. Controllable yet still fast and powerful to topspin from mid until away from the table. But Im not to satisfy to topspinning away from the table because it lacks a bit power so needing more effort.

    BH Topspin : BH topspinning with my RPB is also great. It keeps the trajectory low to medium and give the opponents more problems to return the stroke. Try to use a medium to medium soft rubbers on the BH, its feels great.

    Open Ups/Loops : Loops and Open ups are very effortless. The all-wood feel gives very good feedback and dwell that create a lot of spin thats hard to return. Very satisfying.

    Driving/Hitting : Lacks a bit of accuracy, but its good for me when i use it on BH (that is not RPB [the same side]) still making a good stroke.

    Blocking : Feels great. Lacks power a bit.

    Counter attacks : Very good. Pair it up with my Xiom Omega V Euro, can create a really effortless counter attacks like topspin, loops and counter drives. Creates good trajectory.

    Serving : Feels only a bit bouncy, but still can create a lot of spin.

    Short play : Feels a bit lack of control, need to adjust but when done adjusting it, I satisfated for the result. Flicks also good. 3rd ball and 5th ball is awesome.

    Conclusion : For me this the weapon that RPB Penholders searching. Its easy to create a very strong 3rd ball. I recommended for mix to agressive players that still like to play with power.

    Regards,
    William

    5.00 Stiff and Offensive, jjust like the name
    • Stiff
    • Minimal vibrations
    • Less feeling
    Using H3 neo on it, fl version. What I have felt is that the blade is very good for close to table,solid touch and perfect feedback, one needs to be precise though as it has less dwell. It has minimal vibrations,which I liked.
    Mid and long, one has to apply more power, may be because of my rubber, which needs to be boosted, i think.
    The design of the blade is upto the mark, walnut hard outer plies, and handle is very comfortable, unlike Dhs blades, which have short handles.
    The con of this blade is less dwell time. It has all the power, but when you need to get the ball more on blade, this blade lacks I think, still working with this blade. Will update as I get acquainted with this blade more and more!!
    Note: I have normal commercial version. Wt:92 grms.

    5.00 One of the best and cheapest blades EVER!
    • Great Control
    • Touch
    • Cost
    • Back from table
    This blade overall is a wonderful piece of craft. Not only is this blade pretty cheap at a value of 34-52 dollars depending on the website, but this blade offers really good control. This blade can basically help you direct the ball to any direction you want with enough control and speed to do so. The good this about this blade is that it is not to fast where you can't control your shorts, but at a medium-fast speed to control your shots well. The only con is when you play with the blade away from the table. This blade requires a bit more power/energy on your strokes in order to the ball on the table. Overall, I recommend this blade to anyone that looking for a cheap, not to fast, controllable, and named after a professional blade.

    5.00 Humble Price, rich experience.
    • Tons of feeling
    • Huge Sweetspot
    • Spin machine
    • Not that much
    • power after 3m
    • from table.
    As everyone mention, the feeling. The feeling with this blade is amazing, i cant describe.

    Sweetspot is almost entire blade. Mine is 87g.
    Fast, medium/hard bit of flexure.
    Control is the best ive tested. 9.5 for sure.

    I use with Rakza7 max both sides.
    I can produce monstruous spin in both slow loop or loop drive shots.My serve is very damaging. The only problem i have is flat hits but i think its more due technic/rubber than this beautiful blade.

    I recommend to anyone who like to play until 3m of table, more than that i think will lack some power.

    5.00 It is made of God wood
    • Great Control
    • Good speed
    • Amazing price
    This balde is absolutely amazing for the price. I haven't tried tens of blades only a select few from yasake and nittaku. But by god this blade is so good. I use Hurricane III NEO and it compliments that rubber, like a condom in a whore house. It has great speed, control, feel, and I love the sound it gives off. Great durability I nick this blade on the table all the time it is made of steel! People complain about blocking with this blade but I feel that the blocking is great. It gives more of a low and short bounce, but I prefer that it lets me play extremely aggressive close to the table even when on defense. Honestly I have no negatives for this blade. It is definately worth a try. What do you have to lose, your not going to find many blades at a lower price.

    5.00 Blade Review
    • Fast
    • Accurate
    • Consistent
    This blade is the same one that Ma Lin used for a few years. (Pen grip).

    I recommend this blade for the offensive player. It is fast but you are still able to get good solid control and consistency in your shots as it is not 'over the top fast'. I found it gave me a good overall balance for my close to the table attacking game from both wings as it provided enough speed and was able to counter loop with this blade effectively from close-mid distance.

    Because of the durability and hardness of the blade it gives you a very consistent result on the ball even if you don't hit it in the middle every time, yet at the same time the feeling is not compromised as it still feels very nice to play with.

    A blade for the player looking for a step up to a more attacking orientated blade for strong loops and counter loops whilst still offering you with control and good solid feeling for touch play close to the net.
