I think KASALA by Sauer & Tröger one of, if not the, best blades I have ever played. I have been using frictionless anti rubbers for the last 4 years and tested over 100 different blades. This blade has a very high spin reversal and disturbing effect, sending very low balls to the opponent. I suggest you use a diabolic anti 1.00mm with this blade.

Spin reversal with diabolic anti (1.00mm) same as dr.neubauer superblock. I tried nearly 10 blade with Diabolic anti rubber. no one likes KASALA blade.

Is this blade designed specifically with Anti in mind? How is it with Pips? What style of play is it meant for?

I assume you meant 'there is none like the KASALA blade', right?

Blade: Timo boll alc
FH: Tenergy 80
I am going to give my personal review of S&T Kasalla Blade.... but i apologize if my english is not good and my review is not based on a high level rank player since i am only a recreational player...

my first impression about this blade is wow, this is very thick, my guess the thickness of this blade is around 8mm (could be more since i haven't measure it yet). The construction is very good though the balsa core blade usually has a very strange feel (i don't know how to explain it in english) but in Indonesian we called it "ampang" or in simple meaning balsa blade with very thick head size usually doesn't have enough power for attacking with inverted rubber. But for Kasalla this blade has excellent speed and control, the weight is 80 grams.

At first i thought kasalla is an oversized blade but i was wrong at all.... this blade has head size of 153x151 according to S&T website. This headsize makes this blade very comfortable to play with long pips close to the table with aggressive pushblocking style or chop blocking (i use hellfire ox) which is the main power of this blade. The spin reversal is very good although this blade needs more adjustment of bat angle in passive blocking (balls have tendency to come higher) since this blade even though using balsa as inner core still has an enormous speed and catapult effect. For me the sweet spot is very good to pair it with japanese/tensor rubbers not more than 2.0 thickness to play it close to table.

For playing defense far from table this blade is definitely not the one... (maybe because i use hellfire ox) but for me who usually use oversize blade (joo sae hyuk) for chopping, with kasalla is quite difficult but not impossible if you have good technique (mine is not good). The balls came too high.

I think this blade is excellent, for the price not too expensive and the quality of the wood is superb... excellent workmanship by Sebastian Sauer... :[CLAPPING HANDS SIGN] :[CLAPPING HANDS SIGN]Image
