THE DONIC OVTCHAROV TRUE CARBON:
PITCH WHEN KNOCKING:
It has a sort of a high-pitched sound when you knock on it. It has basically the same tone as the viscaria and the timo boll alc. This means that it is an OFF rated blade. The pitch is also not as high pitched as the Ovtcharov senso no.1.
The blade looks sanded well, and in my opinion, the finish is really nice.
The blade produces a medium high throw angle, when driving, and when you hit hard enough, it produces the characteristic cracking sound of carbon when you hit it hard enough. The blade is suitable for all strokes(except chopping), but at times, it is touchy in the short game(especially with tensors). This blade is very good once you know all the basic strokes. Its stiffness is between the Viscaria and Timo Boll ALC. The blade has good speed and spin quality while still maintaining good control. In my opinion, I like that is not as flexible as the viscaria. It allows me to produce slightly more speed in the close to the table game, and it feels more stable. Its flared handle is smaller than the viscaria, and it allows me to easily transition between forehand and backhand grip.
This blade is compatible with most rubbers, but if I were you, pair it with medium hardness tensors. This gives you confidence in your strokes.
