      New Penhold blade! Zhou Yu 2?

      So my beloved MEO, plus a bunch of other stuff got stolen last weekend so I need a new blade. Probably going to just get another one BUT I came across some interesting options.

      I'm very set on wood five ply, bit of flex, hard outer plies, in a moderate controllable offensive speed. I came across the Zhou Yu 2 by Donic. Ayous, spruce, EBONY 5.8mm. It sounds goddamn perfect: maybe a little thinner and harder outer than MEO?

      Other options: Stiga nostalgic allround, Stiga intensity, Dhs Wang Hao hurricane series

      Anyone played with any of the Zhou Yu's?

      Yes! I should never count out Infinity (it would take forever). It's the main blade of a coach at my club (PH). I do really love this blade but I wonder if the VPS treatment lasts as long as a pure wood like Walnut, ebony, etc. I've also read a lot about Stiga's inconsistency which I haven't heard as much about Yasaka. I don't have a really good basis though (I've played quite a few yasaka blades and they've all been good. I've played one Stiga (infinity PH) and it was amazing). I guess I just want to know about Donic and whether or not they are consistent Funny that almost all the blades I look at are Pro player endorsed...XX. MLin, Zhou Yu, FZD ....

      Sorry. 'I NEED A NEW PH BLADE' i'm aware it's not new, however I can find very few reviews of it. That's really useful information though having looked at the Ebenholz now i'm suprised at how much difference walnut to Ebony makes. At such a thin thickness, I wouldn't have expected such a different perceived speed between MEO, Intensity, Ebenholz, Rosewood V. What I'm asking is if I can handle the speed of a MEO (intensity) is Ebenholz okay?
