Hi Guys!

New Year, New Blade :)

So here we go again! I was watching the CTTSL game with Tianjin vs. Ningbo and I noticed that Ma Long has change his blade again! Definitely not the same handle as his DHS 506 PG3 prototype.

Hurricane Long 3, an advertisement in a TT magazine

https://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/forum/images/malongblade.jpg

It is now official! DHS has just announced the new Hurricane Long 3 coming this year. Same structure as Hurricane Long 2 so it is indeed another 7 ply wood blade. Besides the change of handle colour there is also modification on adhesive used.

Here is a screen shot of the bat:

Haha that is what I was thinking Tim, when you are one of the best players in the world, why would you change, Maybe he got bored. What ever blade it is, it seems to have worked as defeated he Hao Shuai 3-0. Give Ma Long any blade he will play amazing! :)

Yeah, but "only" 3-2 against Lei :D
We have to wait for the first World Tour but often I think the chinese players are not interested in CTTSL, always quit, no cho and the matches are often not very exciting

01-06-2013, 04:10 PM
Maybe he only borrowed it? Maybe because of unsuspected reasons he couldn't play with his own so he took another one. Just guessing, we should see if he plays again with it at the final.
Are there no information on Weibo?

A noteworthy point is what grip cool is blue and has yellow line.
Maybe it's hurricane hao series,but blade is white,so blade is different ruket.
Ma long's blade is always secret.
Viscaria is completely different.
Hurricane long 2 is more different(this grip is brown).

I want more clear pictures.

Seems like a Hurricane Hao of some kind alright. In one of video matches I notice a black lense with chinese writing, so imo it is a DHS blade some kind. But as Christian stated is it his primary blade or just one he borrowed?

Absolutely that very well looks like a Hurricane Hao handle (blue and yellow), but when I was watching the video a couple of hours ago, I noticed red plies characteristic of the Clipper and PG7. So he may have customised it or had one made especially for him.

Since Ma Long is sometimes getting customed by DHS, he can modify what he wants. It can be a DHS Hao because of the handle (blue paint with yellow line and a picture of WH at the base) but not for the blade because Ma Long likes all-wood blades. Maybe he uses Long 2 for the blade or MaxiM's post on HTP. I somehow don't know that yet.

Thanks for the pictures. Unfortunately, after hours of research, I still cannot find the correct blade. The closest one you could ever base (based from the handle color and design) are:- Hurricane Hao series- Hurricane TP Off +.Almost found them unfortunately the logo by the blade is colored gold and has a different design. We need someone from weibo to see this.

are you saying it is a
"hurricane long II blade"
with
"hurricane hao handle"

or
"hurricane hao blade"
with
"hurricane long II handle"
?

only option that makes any sense is the 1st one.
so if you are right all he did was change the handle to hurricane hao's.
so he still uses the same 506 blade to make it short.

Can't see the 2 red plys of his usual DHS 506 so it looks more like a Hurricane Hao 2 (656) without the grey face dye and a minor change of lens reading Hurricane Long 2. He even keep the Hao face at the bottom of the handle.

TripleC
01-12-2013, 11:48 AM
Hurricane Long 2 blade = still correct because of wood look. Hurricane hao handle = not so sure about that. If it is hurricane hao handle, why does the crystal handle logo look so different from the original hao crystal logo? or is it just me?

Sure what they use is custom made so there are always minor or even major differences between their blades and commercial ones. DHS said Wang Hao use their Hurricane Hao 656 but the lens is indeed the same as Hurricane Hao 1 and blade face in brown colour, not the usual grey as commercial model. The same goes to WLQ where he used Stiga blade with Hurricane King handle for some time.

For Malong's new blade, the handle is no doubt in Hurricane Hao 656's blue/yellow colour. It even got the face of Wang Hao at the bottom, but with the lens replaced with the same gold/black lens belong to Hurrican Long 2. The blade's structure is not clear but without seeing the 2 red plys of his usual 506 or any carbon layers like HH3, it is only guessing that it could well be the same structure as HH2 which is an 5 ply all wood blade. Of course it is only guessing with what we can see and nothing is certain at this stage.

Thanks for clearing it out TurboZ! Now I know the 2013 blade of Ma Long. He's got a nice experimented formation. It really is fully offensive type. He's got a nice choice today. There you have it folks, Ma Long's new blade is a Hurricane Long 2 with a Hurricane Hao (656) handle with a hurricane Long 2 lens! =)

01-13-2013, 09:36 AM
If they don't want you to know what they are using, good luck finding out. And if he is using one blade with a different handle, it could really be anything. Without Ma Long specifically telling someone what he is using, it is all guesswork.

Here is a photo of Hurricane Long II with blue handle:

3358

I got that from here:

http://www.tabletennisdb.com/blade/dhs-hurricane-long-2.html

I don't know where table tennis db got it from. But, it looks like it could be similar to what Ma Long has in his hand. It is true that this blue looks darker than the one in Ma Long's hand, but that could be any number of things from the photo itself to Ma Long just requesting a lighter colored handle.

TurboZ
01-13-2013, 05:18 PM
The photo looks more purple than blue but there could be shift of colour due to high compression of the small pic. Who knows but it could well be the upcoming Hurricane Long 3 in Malong's favourite colour blue! We will wait and see.

TurboZ
01-15-2013, 12:36 AM
A little more clear pic shows that the blade indeed has 2 visible plys, seems not as thick as the 2 red plys of the Stiga at the back but could be due to the angle. It is pretty much another 7 plys blade similar to 506 with light blue handle that DHS may release later as HL3. I do hope so. Also he had the FH rubber changed back to H3.

I looks like a clipper but IMO it doesn't play like a clipper. I think there is more feel (medium feel) with the DHS 506 and it is almost as stiff as the Clipper. I reckon there is more control with this blade than the Clipper but that is my 50 cents :) Those I have are 88-90 grams.

I have the impression it is Limba. I have coated both my blades due to every time I reglued my blades small chips of wood came of. So my impression it is Limba because it is softer than koto

Limba looks sort of "swirly" like this:

Koto typically has a straighter and sort of staccato pattern

But it's not always easy to look at a blade and tell the difference.

From the pictures that looks like it is Limba on the outer ply and it looks like it is probably Ayous on the inner plies. Very similar to a Stiga Clipper. Funny.

The two outer plies are pretty close in thickness to the two outer plies of a Clipper. The core is thicker on the Ma Long 3 than a Clipper and the two red plies are thinner than the two red plies on a Clipper. My money says it is fairly close to a Clipper.

this blade is really long 159mm x 151 mm
7 layers, and 6.1 mm.
it weights about 90g.

but it feels dry and rather hard, it's not easy to loop with normal h3.

the reason why Ma Long upgrades is too increase his BH power. The CNT staff wants him to change the blade.

But, yes, the red plies on a Clipper are a lot thicker than the red plies on this Ma Long blade.

Should play a little different than a Clipper because of the thickness of the plies, also, if it is 6.1 mm, overall it is thinner than the current Clippers. Stiga used to make some Clippers at that thickness though. I had one a few years ago. So it might actually be more like one of those Clippers.

But who knows, it might play very differently than a Clipper even if it is the same wood and the same number of plies.

You are probably right. I certainly can't tell what it plays like from just looking.

Is that Ma Long 3 blade the same as the DHS 506?

It does look like DHS is trying to simulate something of the look of the Clipper though.

I know the DHS Hurricane King is the same plies as the Stiga Offensive Classic but it does not play quite the same.

From the picture Tommy he posted the ID-number on the side is telling that it has something to do with the 506. The rumour from different Chinese TT sites are stating that the difference between HL2 and HL3 is the adhesive they are using to put the layers together. Futhermore all the Clipper look alikes as you call them :) have this Ballonet tech that is somekind of ballon effect when hitting the ball. (You don't really fell it).

The Hurricane King is similar to the Old Stiga Offensive Classic. They have a different fell, but they have about the same playing characteristics

From the picture Tommy he posted the ID-number on the side is telling that it has something to do with the 506. The rumour from different Chinese TT sites are stating that the difference between HL2 and HL3 is the adhesive they are using to put the layers together. Futhermore all the Clipper look alikes as you call them :) have this Ballonet tech that is somekind of ballon effect when hitting the ball. (You don't really fell it).

The Hurricane King is similar to the Old Stiga Offensive Classic. They have a different fell, but they have about the same playing characteristics
The new Stiga OC is (black walnut/limba)-spruce-ayous-spruce-(black walnut/limba).

Great info. Thanks.

Im sure it will be somewhere close to the PG7 and the 506... which arent too dissimilar to a clipper but there is a difference.

According to other forums, this blade will be available in 2/3 months from now.

I will be getting it, not just because Ma Long is my idol player but also because im interested to try a 7-ply and I don't like the craftmanship on current Stiga blades.

If it really takes 2/3 months more I atleast have time to test another blade.

I think he is playing with that old blade ( Hurricane Long 3 ) too. Probably he doesn't like his newer blade.
But my question is not what is his blade. My question is: Why he change his blade so much?

11-02-2013, 12:30 PM
I thought that he would return to the 7 ply 506 type blade eventually.

Maybe he just changes the handle to advertise DHS's new products. I doubt a player of his caliber will change blades so often and remain #1.

DHS is about to release the next Hurricane Long 5 and Hurricane 8 rubber for the new ball era in March. The blade is probably having the same structure as what ML is using but in the same old blue handle. Will see in 2 months.

Interesting news! So DHS is one of the first manufacturers to make equipment for new ball. So CNT can train more with new equipment and will not be effected so much by new ball.

TurboZ could you translate the ad ? What does it say regarding composition of the blade?

TurboZ
01-12-2014, 02:44 AM
It translate into something like this:


Hurricane Long 5

Ma Long New Legend

5 plys wood, 2 plys wrap the core ALC

Faster ball speed, obvious speed gain

Mid Far distance with more power

Hurricane Long 5, Fast attack and Loop technique, Ma Long New Legend

On market in March


March 2014, new material ball release to market

Because it has seam, it has centre of gravity

......keeping the characteristic of celluloid ball.




Wonder why DHS did not release a new blade in brown handle like the one Ma Long is using now. May be they are afraid he will change his blade again once the new HL5 release to market! Anyway many say his blade is fiber glass carbon. But the ad say Arylate Carbon. The pic does look like t is having the new structure. Will have to wait and see.

I played it last nite , all i can say its wow, its very fast speed, i can adjust to my forehand right away , but for the backhand i had to close the blade abit more if not it would shoot out like a cannon lolz. Its so much easier to kill loop with Neo Hurricane blue sponge pro. No wonder ML killed all his shot at the World Championship Team Tabletennis :) i only played for 4 hrs, need to break in more :)

Not to divert much, I used PG7 briefly though, a very good blade, must say that for the very cheap price(fl handle 90 grams). If any one would be knowing, interested in knowing how yasaka ma lin extra offensive shakehand would be compared with pg7. Also I have seen in tt11 site about the new blade, or an upgrade of Yeo, Yasaka Goiabao, pls give me review, how is it for a SHAKEHAND PLAYER. Thanks!
