As many of you may know Ma Long changed his blade after his loss against Wang Hao at the 2013 WTTC. There were many speculations to which blade Ma Long had changed to. Lots of people said it looks similar to the Hurricane Long 3.

Perhaps this blade is similar to Hurricane King 3?

Here is the blade below:

Wow - look awesome! Thank you for uploading the pictures peter79 :) When you find out what the plies are don't hesitate to tell.

is the composite layer the second layer after the top ply or is there another wood layer in between?
I mean is it
wood - composite - wood - composite - wood
or
wood - wood - composite - wood - composite - wood - wood

The 2nd or 3rd layer is anigre wood. It is used as 2nd ply mostly (donic waldner dicon, yasaka gatien extra).

So it is an all wood blade, no composite materials at all :P.

Judging from my experience it looks like limba anigre ayous anigre limba, so it is a 5 ply blade or maybe 7ply with 2 outer limba plies

Giangt

Insider knowledge says that the blade contain fiber material. Do not know if underneath the outer ply or if it is close to the core.

TTFrenzy, there is no way that is anigre wood. Take a look at this picture, a side view of the donic blade you mentioned:

http://mytabletennis.net/forum/uploads/22351/Donic_Dicons_SIDE.jpg

If you look at the side view of Ma Long's blade, you can see that the banding is far more uniform than the natural banding seen in the anigre wood.
To me, the composite layer looks very similar to the zylon-carbon layer in my TB ZLC

sebas-aguirre
08-30-2013, 09:14 PM
what about fiberglass/carbon?

http://tabletennisonline.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=319.0;attach=738;image

I remember peter79 mentioned fiberglass at some point...

Yes it looks like cabon fiber layers like the Donic one. I also have the Persson carbotec, I love it! It says the Donic one is Carbon - Glass combo so it's somewhat different from regular Carbon Fiber.

my mistake then! thanx for the info, I was quite sure about it but then again ML has played with an all wood blade only for a short period of time (dont remember which one) before switching to his usual composite one

Just read some info for glassfiber in the official butterfly site. It offers good speed (much better than an all wood blade, bit less than a carbonfiber) but with greater stability and very good feeling (less hard than a carbon ply).

So glassfiber is somehow a material for players who seek something inbetween an allwood blade and a composite but with good feeling. Havent tried any blade with such a combo, if anyone has please provide feedback comparing it with carbon blades & all wood ones

sebas-aguirre
08-31-2013, 05:17 AM
it could even be arylate carbon :D
this is yinhe t-8 arylate carbon
http://tabletennisonline.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=321.0;attach=750;image

so it could practically be any composite glass/carbon, zylon/carbon, arylate/carbon....

What ever the Composite they use, they use high quality wood to make this blade.
I have tried PG7, Hlong 2 and Ma Long 506 Hlong 3 handle.
For me PG7 use low quality wood, it has the worse feel.
Hlong 2 feel is good, but the center ply doesn't have pore, it has a catapult feel that it's very difficult to control.
Ma Long 506 Hlong 3, has a very nice woody feel, very powerful and linear, it's the best blade I've used so far.
Speed, feel, control is just unbelievable. It's like a powerful version of Nittaku Violin.

I haven't bought the new one.
The 506 is just a refinement of Clipper wood, it has more power, more control, more feel...
Looping like 5 ply, smash like 7 ply. No need composite really.

I think he mean Hurricane Long V. Hurricane Long V be on market in March.
http://www.tabletennisdaily.co.uk/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=5322&d=1388933698

It's a 7 ply blade with 2 plies of ALC and 5 plies of wood.



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.

Nice Dan! The blade you have must be a predecessor of the N886. Which rubbers are you planning to put on?

I am planning to put a Hurricane 3 on the forehand and trying Stiga Medium Tour + Tenergy 05 on the backhand side. I will keep Hurricane 3 on the forehand and rotate with the other rubbers to test.

I don't know this buddy but i guess its not. Well the HL3 is the 506 with ML signature handle. The number 506 is in printed in the handle. This could also be the case with HL5 having W968 in printed.
