    OT, why are you complaining about the price? Much cheaper then all the expensive BTY blades. It's also a blade, you don't have to change blade every year. MUCH cheaper then for example a Tenergy which you have to change every couple of month.

    A blade is like a jacket, you can keep it for a couple of years and the monthly cost at the end is quite low.

    For sure getting the Xu Xin Edition, don't been this excited for a blade in a long while!
    Stiga are sending him and Xu Xin blades, so your theory that they are giving Fan Zhendong customized handles is incorrect

    hehe interesting comment. Alas, nothing is 100% perfect.

    Of course Fan Zhendong’s blade is not the same as the infinity VPS on the market, just like Wang Liqin’s Clipper wasn’t the same as other clippers on the market (see another post somewhere on the forums). Im not really concerned about exactly what blade or handle Fan Zhendong or Xu Xin are using. I’m just ranting about the fact that Stiga made my favorite player’s blade hella expensive. : ) and I’m trying to point out that people spend so much on trying equipment and so little on staying consistent enough to get used to their blade (and train their technique).
    Who knows? Maybe Stiga will later make a Fan Zhendong blade that’s super expensive as well. All about the name brand

    All the sources (including those close to CNT) confirms that, what is your theory or intel?

    I do believe they will follow up XX blade story, there is no way they would be marketing just VPS as FZDs blade if they could charge such premium for "real" FZD signature blade. If XX series sells well we can look for similar trick in 2019...

    I think the most solid argument that Fan Zhendong is indeed playing with Infinity is the fact that they have not released any other blades with Fan Zhendong's name yet. Not have he changed blade for the last years neither. If he was in fact using another blade than Infinity, I'm pretty sure that STIGA would have released another blade. I think this is the most solid argument/fact that points to the fact that Fan Zhendong is in fact using Infinity (or some kind of customized version of Infinity).

    In terms of the XX Edition, the price is quite high, yes. But still cheaper then many BTY blades which the butterfly players are not using. Xu Xin seems to be in fact playing with this blade. In contrast to the 13 different Timo Boll blades BTY have, and their extremely overpriced ZJK blade.

    Don't hold your breath for a 2019 Fan Zhendong blade, unless he change blade, which is not likely since he's currently winning almost everything.

    Sorry to inform you that is obviously nonsense. Just look on any FZD blade's photo on the internet, the structure has nothing to do with Infinity. It has clearly visible blue-white ALC layer under the top ply and it's common consensus he is using Viscaria blade just with Infinity VPS handle to keep his sponsoring obligations (you can even buy such customized Viscaria at ProTT.vip shop in China

    Check out Tabletennis11's comparison of xuxin dynasty and regular dynasty carbon. XX dynasty carbon is lighter weight and thinner? So infact these two blades are not the same?

    Xu Xin version and the regular version are the same. I emailed TT11 about the blades' weights, they range from 88g to 92g (FL & ST). Sensibly, the heavier blades tend to be a bit thicker too. You can see such variance with any model of blades.

    Could anyone explain what the lens designed by Xu Xin and his wife means?

    Finally received my dynasty carbon last week. Mine is 90g and 5.9mm thick. Rough finish, but very well balanced. All in all, this is a very woody feeling blade. I don't feel much carbon at all. It has a lot of power, but is also extremely controllable and responsive in short game. This blade has definitely exceeded my expectations. I thought it would be too fast for me, but it's just right. I needed no adjustment at all.

    The coming soon blade was not a carbonado. It was the unnamed dynasty blade before.

    Is it? It looks so different. Much darker, but maybe it was dyed. Is this piece of information somehow officially confirmed by STIGA?

    With a name like dynasty, purple makes sense, royal color and all, but brown is a much better looking color for blade.

    Apparently, XX did not like the color so he changed it to brown.

    Is it more powerful than your NAC and what do mean by "responsive in short game"?

    I feel like NAC and dynasty have very similar top speed, but it takes less power to bring out dynasty carbon's top gear. Maybe this is because of dynasty's harder koto top ply. While both NAC and dynasty have very good/clear feeling, dynasty has more tolerance for error in short game. Overall I feel like all type of shots are just slightly easier to execute (in terms of spin and placement) over the table compared to NAC. This is what I mean by more responsive.
