Hi,

I just got my national w968. I previously used HL5. w968 has a lot more feeling and control and is a very linear blade. But when using full power away from the table it has plenty of it.On the other hand HL5 feels more stiff. Does this mean that pro players specially in the CNT who use dhs w968 prefer blades with more feeling and control cz they can compensate for power with there technique ? Would love to hear your thoughts.

Yes the pros don't seem to use any of the Super zlc blades or the other off++ blades but settle for off - off+.

What rubbers did you use on 968?

You should keep it in a safe when not playing, worth a smaller mortgage :D

Speaking if DHS national blades, has anybody tried an original DHS 08? I have tried my coach's 30 yr old blade which was given to him when he trained in Chine and the speed is quite fast like a carbon blade but the shots are very controllable.

no never tried that. I have tried my w968 and it is a great blade. Lot of dwell and control and lot of power when u use full swing.

You feel big difference between HL5 and W968?

I have a friend who also has got one of those.
Excellent blade.

The commercial ones were already good but having tried the national version, it was really different. Quite heavy as it was 116 grams.

So, balde and rubber is about 220 > 230 gr? I've tried total combo 215gr but so heavy but incredible power, full stroke always over shot, not controlable, loose balcane. I think CNT don't use blade (115gr), 94 or 95 gr is reasonable

Yeah there is a difference.w968 has more feeling and more power away from the table.

Hi Yogi,

I have 4 similar blades (Meteor, Friendship, and 2 Double Fish, 7-ply all basswoods), but never came across a pro quality "genuine" DHS 08 at a reasonable price (the 7 uniform layer version). I remember you had an old post about the anniversary addition. Theoretically it is the same composition and construction, can you do a detailed review/comparison? I'm on a vintage blades kick at the moment and basswood feels like smashing perfection.

Sorry if this is derailing the topic.
