Plays almost the same as a Timo Boll ALC, maybe a bit slower/softer (the Gewo blade is also a wee bit thinner when I compare them).
1 big difference though: I can generate a lot more spin than with the Timo Boll ALC.
Flared handle seems even thinner than a Boll ALC and the shape is less pronounced, almost between flared an straight.
For a smaller price, you get a more forgiving version of a Timo Boll ALC.
This blade is one of the best composite blade I've ever tried. Fast , stable , large sweet spot and easy to control. My ST handle is really comfortable and the weight is 85 grams which I love the most. blocking and topspin are the best part of this blade because this blade is really controllable. I can place the ball whereever I want. This blade is feeling is on the mid-soft range which really sweet to top spin with. The only reason that I need to take a while before I buy this one is the price of it but believe me...this one is worth your money!
I tested it with Hype XT 40 on my BH and Hype XT 50 on my FH. The first impression when I started basic counter hit is this blade produce a loud noise,crisp feeling. Overall speed is faster than Viscaria but a tad slower than Timoboll ALC ( Koto outer ply with ALC composition).
