This is a very good blade. Great control and power when needed. I own lots of Cpens and this plays as good as Viscaria, ZJK ALC, Timo Boll ALC, Rosewood, YEO, Ebenholz, Malong 5, N301, H301, 656, etc. I don't think there is a blade out there that is far superior than this one. I also don't think this one is the GOAT. Bottom line is that this is excellent blade for modern RBP cpen when paired with the right rubber. Hopes this helps.
