I've been using this blade for about 6 weeks now and I remain very happy. I have it paired with Xiom Omega V Europe on both sides. Everything is easier especially looping where I'm able to generate good spin and lift. It also has excellent control and touch, but good pop when I swing. Proper execution always lands the ball where I want it so it's very consistent. I got it with the anatomic handle and really like the feel. If you prefer all wood to carbon or other composites, it's an excellent blade for the money.
