This Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive blade with a flared handle is assembled with Butterfly Sriver 1.7 red and Donic Bracuda 2.0 black rubber.
The blade: Ma Lin Extra Offensive is the blade used by 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist Ma Lin! (penhold version) Excellent speed performance, in attacks as well as in the important blocking play. Large sweet spot. Surface is lacquered at factory to improve speed and durability.
Red rubber: Butterfly Sriver is one of the best-selling Butterfly rubber sheets of all time. Great for offensive play.
Black rubber: Formula Donic Baracuda rubber with built-in speed glue effect produces fantastic spin. The ball leaves the blade in a noticeably higher arc, giving considerably more spin. The increased rotation of the ball stabilizes the shot and increases speed. Shot accuracy is visibly improved even for top players. Baracuda offers that extra margin of safety and touch even in the tightest situation. In addition, Baracuda's top rubber surface has been newly constructed to be more durable than similar rubbers, resulting in more playing hours with a surface that is less prone to damage.
