I don't know anything in specific about that blade, but if you want a lightweight blade I think you should really consider one of the Temper Tech blades from Andro. Even if the offensive version is really fast, it has got fantastic feeling!

I have also noticed that Dandoy has got some new blades from Stiga, the Stiga Maplewood and Stiga Intensity NCT seemes interesting... Has anyone here tested those?

I don't know about Stiga Intensity NCT, but I'm using both Stiga Wood Hybrid NCT and Optimum Carbo. Both are quite alike in terms of control, speed and weight. When it comes to speed, they're really really quick, and I use Boost TP as rubbers. Weight wise its medium, not as heavy as the hardwood NCT series though.

If Stiga are testing and producing blades with Ebony and Rosewood, it makes you wonder if they are planning on using other tonewoods, for the outer plies of their blades, too.

I would also like to know more about the Rosewood NCT V and Rosewood NCT VII. What are the characteristics of this blade?

Currently I am using a Timo Boll Spirit. How does this compare to the two stiga blades?

As a user of the Rosewood VII I could leave some short comments.

It is a very fast blade, and VERY stiff
Works great with Chinese rubbers such as hurricane and harder versions of European (T05, Calibra LT, Boost tp) do not use with rubbers such as t05fx, boost ts,
Large sweet spot, you can make powerful shots from every position

The main thing with this blade that makes it special is that even though it is very fast you have a long ball contact, that you never can get with a carbon-blade. The super carbon-blades Primorac,t5000, SCHLAGER blade, are slightley faster, but you need to be very precise when you hit the ball with these blades. For example at 2-2, 9-9, you want to play with a long ball-contact so you make a safe ball with a lot of spin, this is the perfect blade, the carbon blades you cannot make this with.

I'm using Ebenholz VII, which is almost the same as the rosewood. Very stiff, but wonderful feel on short games. Huge sweet spot, gives you a lot of confidence looping from anywhere. The downside...they're heavy, unless you like heavy blades. The rosewood & ebenholz V is a tad slower, but still quite stiff and a bit more feel. I'm using Calibra LT Plus and LT Spin.

Thanks tremil and azlan for the useful information. Do you think these blades are well suited to a controlled looper like myself? :)

Definitely mate...with a softer rubber like calibra sound & calibra spin, you'll be looping every long ball. It'll give you a lot of confidence.

Great, thanks. I'm going to try and find someone that will let me have a hit with it to see what it is like. I'll let you know how it goes.

I´m using Rosewood NCT V. The blade is very light and as tremil says, it´s perfect ith calibra. I play my game with as much backhand as possible and its perfect for backhand backhand. Big sweetspots. I will try with a hurricane 3 and see how it goes. And i think that you should try the blade, its FANTASTIC!

If your'e going to get a faster rubber than Calibra on that blade... You'll have to dig out the old STIGA Carbon Speed Glue from your dusty closet, haha :P

But honestly, the Calibra and this blade has to be a really good, and sure fast combo. Good luck! :)

Get the Calibra mate, you won't regret it. I think it's even better than Tenergy, at a fraction of the price. A real bargain.

Someone please help me...

I'm using Tibhar stratus power wood at the moment along with tibhar genius on both sides... I found it is too fast for me. Now i'm considering to find a new blade (and also rubber). Is the Rosewood a good choice? Is it slower than the TSPW? the stat of the TSPW OFF- however, it's much faster than off-.

Anyone has play these two blade please give me some advice. Also please suggest some rubber as well....

Can anybody compare Donic Baum Esprit/Joola Fever/BTY Boll Spirit (should be very similar) with Stiga Rosewood V / XO, Stiga Infinity VPS V, Stiga Clipper Wood/Clipper CR non WRB and BTY Petr Korbel in terms of throw angel, hardness, ability to impart spin, speed etc.

With kind regards

Hi guys, I am using the Stiga Rosewood NCT V and it works wonderfully with the Donic Baracuda. I am looking forward to reviewing the DHS NEO National Hurricane 3 on this blade and see how it performs. For your information, the blade is actually hollow and the handle looks great but is a bit rough. It is actually on the heavy side as it is approx. 90 grams and it works well with light rubbers.
