Hi guys! I'm planning on buying this blade but before I do I need some feedback. How is the feel? compared to other blades how fast is it? and what type of rubber is best for it? Thanks in advance!

I tried Hinotec off only but it was fantastic for me. Excellent softish touch and control for short games but still able to provide great speed under hard impacts. Felt like I could place the ball anywhere in topspin games too :) Mind-blowing performance for its price.

Beware though only the surface layer is soft and the blade is still pretty hard overall so it's not a looping blade. Probably doesn't match most hard rubbers well (borrowed my friends' hard rubbers to try on it and ddin't work well becuz of poor dwell time)
However I've just replaced my worn out FH rubber with a rock-hard Joola Rhyzm and it works surprisingly well on my hardish AERO off+ carbon (great control, mysteriously excellent dwell time and spin) so maybe u can give this rubber a try for FH.

thanks cornerer. hinotec off is all wood i think. joola rhyzm is medium hard like my adidas p7, maybe a bit harder. Ill probably like the combi.

Yes Off is all wood but the surface layer is the same I believe.
