As always, James and Judy are always kind and helpful. James picked out the lightest Rosewood XO blade for me at 76 grams. Thank you James! The handle fits my hand better than any other blade I played with recently. The blade/neck transition as well as the thumb rest are perfectly made for my hand. Blade is top heavy with Tenergy 2.1 mm rubbers on both sides, just the way I like it. Build quality is good, although not as good as Nittaku and/or Butterfly. The blade has enough speed and power from any range. Hit with proper and correct technique and this blade will fire bullets. Lifts underspin so easily, I really have to adjust my strokes when playing with it. Light weight provides superior head speed and thus more spin than any other blade. The control is godly. From touch shots, to blocks, lobs, pushes and direction/speed/spin changing loops the blade is unreal and unrivalled. Most satisfying blade I have ever played with, bar none. The blade just plugs into my mind and enables me to execute any shot I wish. It takes practice and a technically proficient player to get the most satisfaction from this fine blade.
