Interesting short pips!

I wonder how it compares to other "speed glue effect" short pimples like Joola Express Ultra or Spinlord Waran. How good is the durability? I've found that some really nice pips will lose their "effects" quite soon *cough* Dr Neubauer Diamant *cough*, making them unplayable and forcing you to buy another one or switch.

Blade: Nittaku Shake Defense
FH: Waran
BH: Cluster Ox
I use Waran (1.5) on Forehand and this week I used Firestorm (1.5) - Blade: Nittaku Shake Defense

Here are my personal perceptions:

1) Speed
I think Firestorm is faster than Waran.

2) Spin
Firestorm produces more spin.

3) Attacking balls that come with topspin
I think it's easier with Waran, maybe I need some adjustment with Firestorm, the balls go off the table.

4)Attack balls that come with backspin
Clearly easier with Firestorm.

5) Smash
I think it's easier with Waran, maybe I need some adjustment with Firestorm

Conclusion
I liked Firestorm and I'm going to try to adapt better in the points where I was doing better with Waran.


sorry for my poor english

That does not sound like a good blade for anti. Scandal requires a stiffer blade with low throw and perhaps with some more speed. Guido at Der Materialspezialist said that of their kombi-blades Dr Jekyll & Hyde is the best for anti. But you should try something like Trouble if you want a slow blade or De Luxe Carbon if you want a faster.

Firestorm soft is very nice but not very fast. If you hit hard it will bottom out (then you should try regular Firestorm, also faster).

Hello thanks for your comment but when i ask guido heun about which blade is perfect for scandal 0.9 he told me wisard is the best cz i have a good forehand and if i want to use Dr Jekyll & Hyde he tell me very slow for scandal so i have to get diabolic, any way i'll try scandal on wizard and see the final result.....
