Hmmm...

No sign of the 309 anywhere - I wrote to them and asked, but no reply yet. Some of the blades seem to share the 309's shape (which - who was it? found so unpleasant).

Mine arrived last Friday, so I put a sheet of 388D-1 (OX) and Reactor Corbor on it and tried it at Social Doubles this last weekend. Interesting - definitely a great deal easier to chop with than any of the other blades I have, and yet it's fast enough that I can loop with it. Didn't have trouble adapting to it (at least on the forehand side), the problem was re-adapting to my usual M8 + MX-P setup afterwards. The long pips? Well, it behaved like long pips do - I could chop the occasional topspin drive that came to my backhand side with it, but as expected, I popped a few pushes high and blocked a few balls into the net. I could put away high balls with it, though. Maybe one day I'll put another sheet of inverted on the backhand and see how it plays.

As to the "wings"... I think this bat is meant to be held pretty low on the handle, if you follow EmRatThich's advice about resting your thumb on the flat at the top of the handle. Held this way, the web doesn't seem to protrude too much. If you hold the blade higher (i.e. you put your thumb on the rubber), then I can see why some might want to shave down the "wings".
