This blade is excellent. It's expensive but well worth the money. I have been experimenting often with TT equipment during the last few years, and have spent a lot of money. When I first used it this blade, I thought it may be too slow. Although it's labelled as "offensive", it's nowhere near as fast as other bats I've used. Each company is different in their bat speed ratings, however, so it's hard to know what to buy.

I have used fast pimples on the TSP blade, and found that I could smack winners so fast that the opponent had no time to react. At the same time, I can play a short game. That's the best balance I've found. The bat is well manufactured, not too heavy or light, and not top-heavy, plus there is plenty of dwell time.

I have recently experimented with rubbers, now using an inverted Tensor rubber on the forehand, rather than the fast short pips. The bat is even faster now. It's still easy to hit winners (either flat or loop-kills), but I can play the short game with it too. I think I may have the perfect blade. Just by choosing suitable rubbers, the blade would suit most players. I play an all-round attacking game, based more on speed than spin, and yet this bat has been described as excellent for loopers. So whether you hit or loop, you can't go wrong. If you want the maximum in power, you may be tempted to play with a fast carbon blade, but then you'll lose dwell-time and are likely to hit every ball off the table.

Overall, this is the best blade I've tried, and I have no reason to buy any more.

This blade is really blade for loop and topspin play.dwell time is big ball comes off wery spiny but can play passive game with easy.rubbers on my one are TSP triple 21. offensive sponge on back and Avalox Pronte on forehand.I must say that for first time since I play table tennis and try a hips of blades and rubbers this is combo taht feels perfect for my style from the moment I start playing with it.No meter wat is service,loop topspin blocking even is easy to chop the ball.Plenty speed and to me moast important spin is fantastic.

I have purchased several blades to try and find one I really liked. It's easy to read reviews and think "oh yes" this is just what I need. But until you use the product it's hard to know. This can be a costly exercise.
The balance , weight and feel are very nice. I don't believe I will ever need another blade. Combine this with an offensive or an allround rubber , I have JUIC nano and Nittaku Hammond (gone for offensive back and forehand) yet control is great , speed is good. Some superb loop play and generally topspin play (for me).
This blade is quite simply sweet. It is expensive but at least I have stopped buying blades - so in effect its cheap :) You can feel the ball and are in-touch with your shots. Certainly recommend this to anyone.
