Currently training with professional coach with offensive style. With the focus of directing balls in different directions, speed and spin, this blade feels like a best friend. I can switch gears at will and paint the lines consistently. Also feel more confident facing fast or high incoming balls, just calmly follow the correct form and the ball will follow my mind. With control/spin focused rubbers you get a visceral ball feeling. You can generate tremendous power if you rely on your good mechanics and timing. But if your first priority is to brutalize the ball and where it lands is a secondary concern then this is not your blade. The build quality is not top notch, with wood chipping off slightly when changing rubbers and surface seemed not perfectly even. But all this imperfection is trivial in context of the pure pleasure hitting the ball, not to mention the small price.
