The Donic Waldner Offensive 2016 is a limited edition blade in the OFF- to OFF range. The handle is longer than that of a typical paddle, and the head is longer and more narrow. I ordered mine in the Flared handle design, but it also comes in Anatomic and Straight designs. Despite these design choices, it is the best blade I have ever owned. Its balance of speed and comfort is superb. It has a large sweet spot which makes it forgiving with loose form. It is great for looping, flicking and blocking. It supports much spin if paired with a good rubber. It has medium dwell time and it sings with every stroke in the classic all-wood fashion. While the paddle is slightly heavier than other Donic blades it is not quite a club. Overall I would say it is the best deal on the market for the intermediate attacking player at a mere $32.85! It is a deadly paddle that makes it easy to fire off a rally killing shot while maintaining the versatility to keep you on the table against any attack or defense. This made in Sweden blade is gold!
