    5.00 [5.00]The best blade for Feel and Spin
    • Tons of Feeling
    • Handle Comfort
    • Craftsmanship

    Before I post the review of this amazing blade, here is the list of blades that I have and played with during my EJing time:

    And finally, my EJing days came to an end with this master piece.

    Blade Composition:

    Limba + Arylate-Carbon (ALC) + Limba + Ayous + Limba + Arylate-Carbon (ALC) + Limba


    First Impressions:


    Excellent Craftsmanship and Extremely comfortable handle. Once you get this blade out of the box, the first thing I noticed was the looks. Damn!
    I paired them with Evolution MXP on both the sides. During warmup, I was astonished to get this feeling of ball grab + a slight vibration which tells you where did the ball contact blade.

    Speed:

    I noticed from free point forehand rallies that the speed of this blade is similar to Viscaria. Precision shots were like a piece of cake and easy to execute.

    Spin:

    Spin is one of the best qualities of this blade. If your game is focused on spin, your search for "my blade" ends here.

    Control:

    Controlling offensive shots close to the table was very easy; however, away from table, I had to focus on brushing the ball well to generate extreme power.
    p.s. this does not mean that the blade is slow.


    Counterloop and blocking:
    This is the area where I am currently focusing on with this blade and I had to adjust my technique to get the ball on the table.


    Which rubbers should you consider pairing with?
    The throw angle of this blade is medium and you should pair hard rubbers to make sure you get that precise powerloop near the edge of the table.
    MXP
    Omega VII Pro
    Omega V Pro
    Gold Arc 8
    Rasanter R 47

    Conclusion:
    If you are looking a blade which will give you the perfect balance between speed, spin and control without loosing the feeling; stop searching and get this one.
