    The HL V is a fair bit more expensive than the Viscaria; that would explain some, but not all, of the popularity issue. Also, the Viscaria was already very popular well before ML became the superstar...

    I'm just guessing here, but might it have something to do with the availability of good quality hinoki in sufficient quantities to justify Butterfly, Stiga and DHS developing and marketing blades...

    I should add that, strictly speaking, the Donic Persson Powerply isn't a 5-ply. It's actually a 7-ply, but the 'extra' plies are very thin foil and the blade plays more like a fairly powerful 5-ply...

    OK, now we can narrow the options a bit:

    Xiom Offensive S
    Butterfly Primorac
    Donic Persson Powerplay
    Tibhar Stratus Powerwood

    These sound like the sort of thing you're after. Again, I'm...

    I don't know the Yinhe N11S so can't comment on that, but good blades in the ALL+ to OFF range are plenty. Some that come to mind are:

    Xiom Offensive S
    Andro Timber 5 OFF/S
    Andro Novacell...

    Good call! Fastarc G-1 is an outstanding rubber; at least as good as others double its price.

    It's available from TT11. The range goes:

    Medium (1.4mm)
    Thick (1.8mm)
    Super-thick (2mm)
    Max (2.15mm)

    Like Yoass I've also been hesitant to try the new Max. The regular 2.0mm version is...

    Well, I'm certainly not an expert in Chinese-style rubbers, but I don't think Xiom Vega X is in that category. Did you perhaps mean Xiom Vega China, or Xiom Omega VII China Guang?

    I find it easy for blocking - but, note, only as a forehand rubber. It's not bad on the BH but, to me anyway, it feels excellent on the FH and not-quite-right on the BH.

    FYI, take a look here:...

    This is an excellent combo and, unless your coach advises you otherwise, I'd stick with it for a long time. Upgrade to the max thickness when the time is right, or possibly to MXS 2.0mm if you want...
