Anyone have experience with this blade?

It seems like a really interesting blade and is compared to the W968...

Can anyone compare it with Long V,W968,B2/B2X.

Hi you can check out this review (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phU-1dBlpi4). It's outer ALC. The 968 equivalent is Athletico spin (inner ALC).

I have never played it myself but heard lots of positive review on Bilibili

Power is inner alc.

But yes, lots of positive reviews on Bilibili, I'm currently looking into buying one myself, but due to the recent lockdown (COVID) in most big cities in China, it'll take quite a long time for them to be able to ship it to me, so I'm patiently waiting lol

Are there more reviews simillar to the guy you posted? Seems like he liked it, and there were a couple of parts where he compares it to the w896 but it wasn’t subtitled unfortunately :p

I just rewatched it. The parts where he compared it to 968 has subtitles. For example, FH loop isn't as heavy or powerful as 968, but quicker to recover due to a more balanced weight.
