When compared to expensive Butterfly blades with the same origin this one is cream of the crop. Blade is not to heavy or not to light. Handle fits very comfortable in hand. Blade will give you the speed (acceleration) as needed. Provides very nice control if proper technique is used in delivering or receiving to ball. On a scale of 1 to 10 (in my opinion) I give it a 10. Blade works very well with Tenergy 05 FX sponge and rubber. I just ordered a back-up. Super nice product.
