I had been playing with the Hunter Pyro for years and absolutely loved the feel, power and control of this blade. Unfortunately it was discontinued and I looked for a long time to find this combination again. I had been through 3 other blade rubber combos with little success.
The Hybrid NCT was recommended to me by an employee at Paddle Palace. I was a little hesitant to try it as, at this price, if I didnt care for it, it was a lot of money to invest.
When I first received the blade paired with Yasaka MK5 V2 2mm rubber on both sides it took me a few weeks to adjust to the change. It is a 9 ply blade and slightly heavier than my previous combo. However, after adjusting I absolutely love this combo and just purchased my second blade/rubber combo as backup. If you are a power player with a lot of spin this combo is fantastic. Two thumbs up.
