This Donic Ovtcharov True Carbon blade with a flared handle is assembled with DHS Gold Arc 5 2.1 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: GOLDARC 5 from DHS integrates the intensive pimple-structure and BIOS technology to provide stable control and excellent hand feel. The balance of friction and tension can be controlled with minimal effort. The performance of rubber will be comprehensively raised by increasing the playing strength. GOLDARC 5, the highly elastic non-sticky rubber, was developed by the DHS R&D center and German rubber-making experts under the consultation of World Champion Wang Liqin.
