      Should be pretty much the same as the Force Black. Different handle.

      SK7 should be similar to Force Pro Black but a touch slower: https://ttgearlab.com/2017/02/16/sam...es-comparison/

      I had seen this information and that is why I bought the blade TBH.
      It looks like it will be very predictable to use, and if it is soft but stiff it should suit me and allow me to spin on fh still, but hit with the pimples.

      We will see!!

      Whether it will be better enough than the Force pro Blue which I can get for almost half the price though I doubt!!

      The differences between a 6.7mm Force Pro vs a 6.6mm SK7 would be bigger than the difference between both models at 6.7mm and similar weight. How heavy/thick is the one you bought? Those are the 2 questions I ask sellers when deciding on two blades of similar construction.

      But honestly, this is getting into deep EJ nerd territory lol.

      the force pro blue is 6.3 and the straight handle one i have just bought feels beautiful on my short pimples, very crisp.

      but different blade different manufacturer

      SK7 arrived, 97g it feels very solid. I think it will be an excellent blade. Feels very robust.

      Also it is a Japanese model.

      I used the SK7 last night in a league match and was very impressed with it.
      It was at a warm venue that I have not played at before so can't compare it.

      However even with a Nittaku Hurricane I played very well, although the Nittaku Hurricane felt too slow to me on it.
      The spectol red felt excellent maybe it was the extra weight of the blade, seriously they felt very very good.
      I think I need to try Tenergy 05fx on forehand. It was much better for looping than I expected, much better than a force pro black or clipper.

      It is possible my Nittaku Hurricane is a bit worn out now though.
