This Donic Ovtcharov True Carbon blade with a flared handle is assembled with Yasaka Rakza X max red and black rubbers.
The blade: The Donic Ovtcharov True Carbon blade, the blade chosen by champion Dima Ovtcharov, presents the perfect combination of speed and feel. As a consequence of the change to plastic balls, the World #1 Champion looked for a solution that would meet his high requirements -- a blade to compliment Dima's powerful strokes while enabling him to play the short service and return game with precision and accuracy. The combination of five high quality plies and two layers of carbon, plus a specially designed synthetic fiber, has resulted in a top quality blade. This means that Dima Ovtcharov is able to use the hardness of the blade for his power game, yet retain fine touch when reacting to his opponents' spin.
The rubber: The new Rakza X is the latest addition to the popular and highly successful RAKZA series of Yasaka rubbers. The top sheet is made of natural rubber, employing a new production method. The result is a top surface with exceptional grip enabling both phenomenal spin and speed. These qualities reduce the margin for error. This top sheet is then combined with a harder “Power Sponge”. The resulting combination of a faster sponge and high grip top sheet enables you to place the ball accurately with a high degree of success.
