Dynasty Carbon Xu Xin Edition is the result of years of development in search of a carbon blade with the ultimate balance between classic wood feel, known as the “STIGA feeling”, and carbon fabric development.

We have developed and designed Dynasty Carbon together with World and Olympic champion Xu Xin, to create a blade especially for the omniscient player who masters all elements of Table Tennis.

The Dynasty Carbon uses a newly developed Swedish made and patented carbon technology which makes the carbon fabric as stable and strong near the edges as in the middle, without affecting the overall balance and weight of the blade. This new Carbon technology is called TeXtreme+. TeXtreme+ draws from the original TeXtreme Spread Tow Carbon Technology and consists of an advanced, super thin carbon fiber fabric that maximizes the strength-to-weight ratio. Dynasty Carbon is built with a thick middle veneer which enhances the core feeling and overall balance of the blade. The outer veneer is Koto, chosen for its quality and short in-game dwell time in comparison to more traditional outer veneers.

This blade which combines superb touch with unbeatable power, gives you the possibility to be as creative, technical and powerful as Xu Xin.

Dynasty Carbon Xu Xin Edition includes a signature of Xu Xin and features a uniquely designed lens by Xu Xin and his wife, former Chinese National Team player Yao Yan, describing their love story.
great blade

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.

Expensive but excellent blade

Consensus on this blade is that the price is very expensive but the blade itself is excellent, great control, feel and speed. I got the penhold xuxin version. It would be a 5 stars if the price is in the 150 range. But it's a solid 5 stars just for the blade quality and playability. If you can afford it, one of the best penhold blade in the market.
