    Hi ADurao,
    I'm glad to hear that you've found Butterfly rubbers such a good fit for your game. 👍
    That said, I don't think I can agree with your assessment of the competition - or 'lack thereof' as...

    I agree with Andy's recommendation for something along the lines of Rakza 7.

    What others have said about different coaching strategies and so on is perfectly valid but, in the absence of any...

    Vodak blades come pre-sealed. That said, whatever sealant they use is so thin that you probably wouldn't know it's there. I know some folks prefer their blades unsealed (either so they can seal them...

    It sounds like you're an allround player and, if that's the case, then Rakza 7 is a good option (and considerably cheaper than the Butterfly options you mentioned).

    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 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

    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?
