I used H3 commercial, provincial and bs. The BS was by far the best but didn't last too long because of broken pimples. The blade has tons of control and dwell with a nice crisp feel, so if you are going for spin its perfect. The speed is enough if you don't go too much far back from the table. Now i'm using it with the 3-50 and the combination is also good, perfect for spin and over the table play.

hello, i play the Donic WSC also now, and really like the blade.
i have used the friendship 729-2 sensor on this blade and it plays ok , but only on the forehand imho
this friendship is better when boosted with paraffine oil
a better combination on this wood would be a regular Tibhar Genius imho

on the forehand the Donic Coppa Gold is also very powerfull , fast and spinny on this blade, only for attacking kind of play !

Ahh,, But is there chances that it would make a good combination with DHS H3 Blue sponge? :)

Chinese rubber is quite hard, it will work ok on the WSC depending on what kind of style you play. The WSC is a little less stiff than most carbons and has great control and feeling. The hollow handle gives it a bit more spring through the rubber. It's not an extremely fast carbon so it could work well with fast and hard chinese rubbers.

I am not yet familiar with donic WSC.... but.. in your words.. how would you give me a review about it?

Ask Matt Hetherington , he is a WSC lover. IMO I would not though. Because WSC is a very delicate and light blade which works well with lighter european rubbers. I would say its for you to try and find out if it suits you. Every body have their personal style and its very difficult to tell without trying.

My personal experience , I put tenergy 05 on it and the blade broke after a few months , the head just snapped from the handle and I did not buy another WSC since :)

I think wsc is a very versatile blade. I use h3 on the forehand and it works well for me. My teammate uses tenergy 05 and it also works very well for him. Like ttmonster said it all comes down to your personal style. I'm always changing blades, looking for something faster, but i always come back to the wsc because of the feeling and control.

Hmmm your Personal Experience with WSC is quite interesting.. hehe... but just in my curiosity why did the head snapped from the handle?

My playing style is quite close to being an aggressive allround play...... do you think it would fit me?

Most of the people who use this blade have similar styles so i would say yes

I wish I knew bro ... I guess putting two tenergys on it was too heavy for it , or may be it was faulty ... I have no clue

Tenergy is on the heavy side. Not as heavy as H3 but still it is heavier than most rubbers. Xiom rubbers are pretty heavy too.

Sometimes when you have a light blade like that that has good touch they break easily. That does happen.

Ahh... how about an H3 Blue sponge on FH and Xiom Vega Eu on BH to a Donic WSC? will it break the blade easily?

It's a blade which with the right rubber combination can make shotmaking very easy. It produces good spring through the rubber which makes blocking easy as the ball projects out of the rubber very well. It is well balanced for a carbon blade, not too stiff or too fast like many carbon blades, so almost like the feeling of an allwood blade with a bit of extra speed. Perhaps visit tabletennisdb and check out some reviews there also :)

Thanks for the shoutout there, quite right I'm a WSC lover haha I actually use Tenergy05 on both sides now and have never experienced any problems with the blade snapping, sounds like bad luck. In saying that the WSC is a head-heavy blade, the weight is distributed into the front of the blade and not the handle, which means it can become unbalanced if you put heavy rubbers on it. As I said I haven't experienced any problems as yet.

I started using the WSC towards the end of 2011 and have never even considered changing as I haven't found anything more suitable for me. It's got great feeling and has worked well with all the rubbers I have used, Nimbus Sound and Soft, Sinus Sound and Soft, Tibhar Rapid Dtecs and it's soft variant, Adidas P7 and Tenzone and now Tenergy05, oh and Acuda S1 turbo. So I can't fault it :P I haven't tried it with Chinese rubber though and not being a fan of hard tacky rubber I doubt I'll be giving it a go anytime soon :D

Ahh.. haha I was still undecided in what blade you I get.. but in what you just said about it.. I think I am convinced to buy Donic WSC blade.... And honestly.. at my first thought of planning to buy this is that I am a VERY VERY BIG FAN OF J.O. Waldner :DDD.. hahaha. Now, I have a reason to buy it and start loving it as I buuy and assemble it with my Rubbers.... :D

Yep.. I've been active in tabletennisdb reading the Reviews about the blade.... :D.. starting to think to buy it because it's feeling is a little bit close to an allwood blade and it give's an extra amount of speed that I would be needing to have my topspins faster... Tnx :)

I have no idea. But, some blades, especially when they weigh under 85 grams, can be very delicate. They might play very well, but if you play hard they may break easily. I really don't know about the Donic WSC. I have not used one. I know there are several blades I have seen start breaking at the juncture from the handle to the blade face. And that it did not happen because of stupid things like the racket being thrown or banging the racket. If you do dumb stuff like that you can break almost anything. But some blades do start to breaking without that kind of irresponsible treatment. I personally have never had a blade break but I take care of my equipment to the best of my abilities.

Viscaria! (I've recently changed to it from TB ALC) Haha

Honestly, buy the WSC blade. I think most of the advices forum members have given you is positive. :)
Good luck!

ahh... I'm also taking care of my equipment responsibly but I was wondering if the blade might be broken because of my setup.... without knowing the weight limitations of the blade according to its rubber.

I mean that rubbers never are what cause a racket to break. The racket breaking part, hopefully that does not happen to you.

Yeah.. hopefully... and that would be one of my prayers and wishes when I buy the blade and start using it d-/\-b
