This Blade With Mark V 1.5 on both sides was great all-around. I was able to learn new chops and loops making my defense to offensive game far better, and it didnt take away my ability to use lots of top spin on returns. I was also able to return slams and smashes that I normally could not return. The only down side was when I hit it on the side of the table on a forehand return, the blade snapped right where the handle meets the face. Other than that the blade and rubber combo I had was great for the all-around offensive player!
