    Golden Hurricane Long 5




    I wonder if the quality and performance will match W968?

    How much is this? must be really expensive i guess. Even the w968 national ver costs wooping $826 currently on table tennis eleven.

    I don't think it is released yet. I found it on Pingpangwang.com.

    It could be a fake ad, who knows.

    I don't entirely regret paying $162 for my blade, but off of ebay a bit lower than other places I can assume it is fake, however I read that the fakes are produced in the same factory, and are just as good, so if there isn't any difference, what does it matter?

    That golden version looks identical to mine, so can't imagine what could possibly justify a price like that.

    Nope, you're wrong here, the ad is for a "new blade".

    Translation of the text:
    Since 2014, Hurricane Long series blades has accompanied Ma Long on his journey to become gold medalists.
    On August 2021, Ma Long stood on the highest podium again, and won his second grand slam ---- this incredible feat among male table tennis players is hailed as "golden grand slam".
    We now use this as our inspiration to create this new blade "Golden Grand Slam Hurricane Long 5".

    Well, I bet it's just some new text and pictures on the box, and some extra printing on the blade surface, which you'll never see if you put rubbers on the blade... oh and of course a higher price than the current Long 5/5X.

    Inspiration equals sales opportunity perhaps 🤣

    Given its price tag of $400USD, it's not too bad for a golden version. Golden Viscaris is hiking up to $800USD now.

    Testers in China say the Golden HL5 is less muted than W968, faster with low impact and easier to play with.

    Well, i was collecting although not that much yet like many here, but i am thinking about settling on something, i don't need to have like 20-50 rackets only that i can collect, but if i didn't buy more i might never reach to my favorite blade, i bought that Long 5X back in 2020 after i had enough blades tested and was happy with one, now with DHS blades i have i am still thinking about getting more from DHS, but not at those prices tag, so for now i am not interested in because of the price 😂

    Wait for second hand. I got my letter W968 as second hand. Half the price and the feeling is good because it is the old batch.

    Or maybe not, i didn't and will never give up my Long 5X yet, also my Hao 3 isn't any less, i use the Hao 3 for practice and 5X for games, so this way i can protect both rackets or not exhaust each for everything, and also i can have good experience with two different rackets in speed and control.

    I was thinking about buying commercial Long 5, but someone had it and i tested it once, it was really nice, but it didn't match my 5X in my hand, so i felt like it could be like a downgrade for me, i still can use it, but why if i will prefer 5X more, and so i also thought that W968 could be the same and won't be any superior to 5X, i hope i am wrong.
