I have been summoned hahah
Well, the blade is of superb quality and its pretty much my go to blade now. First time holding the blade I felt it was a little heavy for my taste, being accustomed to 90g, but when I put the rubbers on, the balance didn't shift a bit so the blade felt like it gained no real weight that would slow down my game.
Initial impression was phenomenal, the blade having a low balance is what I like the most. The handle was modeled after the XIOM IceCream and the feeling is spot on.
The weight is here, like holding a Quarter Pounder, but its not a problem ingame.
Driving is definitely the blades strong suit. It feels crisp and strong. The FH (bamboo) side + Omega 7 Tour gives the blade a strong kick and a medium long trajectory with medium arc.No consistency problems on the FH side since I'm a long distance looper and hitter. I twiddle the racket and the BH side is a little harder for me to control because of the long trajectory, but its managable.
Looping is also great, the blade has enough power to send the ball flying over the net no matter the distance. My kind of loop (alot of arm and body movement going forward) gives the ball a strong kick of the bounce and a medium low arc to the edge of the table. I struggled a bit more with openers on the BH side because of the fast blade and rubber combo but the feeling is nice and consistency is getting better with more play.
Blocking feels solid and controlled. Hard rubber with a relatively hard bamboo outer layer gives it a strong, direct block direct on the table. Punch blocks are also not a problem.
BH side with "ebony" and long pips (Stiga horizontal 20) is controlled and easy to chop away from the table because of the speed of the blade, altough the blade is slower on the BH side, about All+ to Off- speed.
