      My fake Ma Long V from alliexpress for 20$ is resonating at 1335Hz and the ebony one (advertised as W968-8) has resonating frequency at 1378.

      can you post links to those fakes(playapingpong store or some other clone shop)?
      can you post pictures of your blades?

      I haven't glued rubbers yet. I think I will have time around Sunday.

      Long V clone: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33014990239.html, paid 23$ on alliexpress single's day promotion
      Ebony W968-8: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33020088063.html, paid 29$ on alliexpress single's day promotion

      The guy owning the store is very responsive. Answered all of my questions. I asked for lightest blades he had and he kindly replied. Blades came with neoprene covers, lemuria advesive rubber protectors and edge tapes. (gotta love those freebies) So far I am happy with quality. They don't have any sharp edges. Wings have been sanded inwards as seen on photos. It looks promising. Although I can't recommend them yet. Once I test them thoroughly I will be able to give a more trust worthy opinion. The surface finish could be a tiny bit better though. I hadn't had time to examine it thouroughly but I might do sand the hand just a tiny bit, to get it more smoother.

      PS: I know there is no printing and lens. I asked wether I could get one without and shop owner kindly send me blades without those crapy lenses and without printing with typos <3

      I emailed prott.vip asking which one of their clones is the closest to a w968. I believe they have 4 clones (Yasaka Atletico Power, HRT Pro, Sword HD997, and Yinhe Pro Feeling).

      Their answer so happens to be the most expensive of the clones (so take it with a grain of salt) but for what it's worth, their response was:
      The Yasaka Atletico Power is closest to matching W968. And this blade is on sale now.

      yes sure. I don't know if this method is precise. I think that we could have different result even if we test the same blade. We should use the same ball, we should trow the ball from the same height and the room must be the same (I think that the acoustic of the room could be a relevant factor).

      The height and room doesn't matter. I've tried it in 4 different rooms in my home. Height of the peak did change with drop height, but frequency that in which blade resonated did not change. Only if I forced the ball onto blade (which I think I may not should have done?) the peek changed (I've used a lot of force, the ball flied away to other room). The ball might be a factor but I tested on xuschofao 3 star ittf approved, hueison and Donic training balls and peek did not move.

      I can redo those and share my results, but that is a discussion for other thread. The phone would a biggest difference I think.

      But based on the Excel database that is shared on ooak forum, this method is working surprisingly well. Most same blades are scoring same or very similar.

      Do you have or have you had a long 5 or w968, if yes, when you get the yasaka can you compare the handles please, on the pictures of prott it looks like the w968 has a wider/bigger handle.

      I think you asked a failed person. Seller always said that the most expensive is the best. Haha.

      I finally tried Yasaka Atletico Power tonight, with Rasanter R53 on fh and GoldArc8 on bh. Good blade for sure, but impossible to say that it's equal or better than w968, especially since I've used H3 on fh for the last few years on w968. The handle on YAP reminds me of Viscaria but slightly thinner. R53 is a good rubber but I've gotten used to brushing the ball and you can't really apply that technique with R53, so I won't use it as my main rubber. As it seems - H3 forever.

      cheers been waiting for that, the yasaka alnade inner is also a copy of the N301 numbers just without the hollow feeling that you get from the real one, will you try h3 on your forehand on that version of the blade?

      A follow up with my first playing impressions about the Long V clone. No sanding was needed after all. I let blade air out and measured again. Same room, about same temperature, just few days without plastic wrap.

      The blade is superb. I moved rubbers from my Apellgren Allplay to it. It applies much more spin that the Allplay did. The power is slightly more than my Gambler Fire Dragon Touch, it is much lighter though. The head is much much bigger as seen on photos. It is both longer (about cm) than appelgren allplay and wider (3mm?). The Fire Dragon Touch is much better in touching than then fake long V, although the fake V has more gears and top gear power. I will allow myself to follow this up with comparison to the ebony one.

      Also I've opened the ebony one and tested it.

      I've realised I measured them with foil on... Stupid me.. The difference is negligable, but there is a difference.
