Stratus Samsonov CB

5 out of 5 rating for Stratus Samsonov CB

A great 7 plies composite blade made from Balsa and Carbon. Is very fast, has a good control, medium to high hardness and nice durability. It weights around 85g and the handle is really confortable. The only thing I don't like about it is it's small sweet spot.

Overall I would recommend this blade.

It's a great blade. Composition is limba-ayous-alc-ayous-alc-ayous-limba if I'm not mistaken.

Blade has great feel and control with lots of gears. I like the fact that it gives the power that you put into it and doesn't just shoot the ball out allowing you to perform great whether for the short game or from away from the table.

Some may not like the fact that it has a small sweet spot. I actually do not mind as it gives me great feedback as to whether I hit the ball right or not.
It's a bit hard and stiff.
Speed is like a slow OFF but OFF+ on full powered strokes.

A good plus is that it's edges are rounded off and that makes it a pleasure to hold. The handle also is really nice as it has a "big" FL handle compared to handles of different makes.

All in all it's a really good blade and at only 95 Euros(SRP) at that.
