My experience with Black & White was very short and unfortunate - the blade broke near the handle the next day after I received it.
I've only played for like 5 hours with it. I didn't hit the table nor did I drop or throw it.

Today I tried my B&W briefly with a well used Der Materialspezialist Reflection 1,5 mm on BH and Xiom Omega VII Euro on FH. FH was very nice and controlled but still enough power when I put some force behind the stroke. But this blade was not for blocking with frictiobless anti close to the table. Almost no spin reversal compared to my normal setup and the ball leaved the bat with a clearly higher throw. But I will now put my new sheet of MP Power Pipes on it, I think that will be a great match :). But it will take some time before I can evaluate more thoroughly. I will have to focus on my main setup the next weeks.

Really look forward to your findings on that combination as I have used the B&W for a few months now with various short/medium pimples and am tempted to try Power Pipes

What you will find is that the B&W with it control orientated BH side with soft Limba outer plies is great for controlled attack especially against back spin. although not fast it allows very accurate placement.

Where did you buy it from? That's a very short life for a blade :(

I bought it on tt11 (it was on sale, remember? ;)

Yes, this was the first time for me that a blade broke so quickly!
I wonder if I should try complaining to tt11 or S&T...

I would complain - politely but firmly: blades should not break after 5 hours of normal play time. Something like this would make me a LOT less likely to buy S&T stuff in the future.

Agreed! There must have been a hidden crack in the blade. I got mine from the same place, looks fine so far...

Hope yours will serve you better than mine did. :D

A friend broke a Firewall plus in the same place the other day clashing blades in doubles, but that blade is basically just balsa plus a thin wood ply. The B&W on the other hand has a balsa core with then a carbon layer and two wood layers on each side so should be quite strong.
