The Donic Dotec System is the wood technology without awkward edges. Since the human hand does not have hard edges, Donic wanted to develop a smooth blade without sharp edges. It was, therefore, important to ensure a completely smooth transition between blade and handle.

The Donic Dotec system is the technology that provides a blade with a perfectly smooth handle a joy to grip.
Great Blade

Very good craftsmanship, an all around great blade. It takes a bit to get used to, but it is worth it if youre willing to adapt to the hand-specific grip. Just make sure you dont choke up or the blade will perform horribly. I realized this after a few weeks of cursing the poor thing. If held properly, it will blast kills and make subtle touches, chops are okay but loops and more are great.

a bit more control

Played with it last night for the 1st time. After the obligitory period of adjustment (felt like I'd spent the last week in lunar gravity), things started to really come together. There seemed to be very little loss in speed from my old (fast, carbon) blade, but I had much better ability to place the ball where I wanted. Blocking was the only area which seemed better on the old blade; loops, kills, and short drops all improved for me. I could execute a reasonable chop when needed and lobs were WAAAYYY easier now. Am I happy with this blade? Oh yea.
