I finally have this blade and after 2 practice sessions am enjoying playing with it.

It is very big though. Described by a guy at my club yesterday as resembling a frying pan.

Excellent control and enough pace for my forehand.

Never thought of it as big - for that, try Dr. Neubauer Barricade. :D

Blade: YinHe N11
It is quite large.
I found it too unwieldy for offensive looping game, particularly on BH.
For chopping it must be ok as lots of people like it.
But it is what it is, a defensive blade.
Fit for purpose.

I've been playing with the Defplay V3 for over a year now ... here's my 2 cents (Based on my skill/technique) ...

  • It's large, but at no point did it seem unwieldy... not even initially ...
  • I find it rather springy..Initially, had a very though time, keeping the ball on the table, especially on the LP(Ox) side....The ball would simply fly off... Even now, although, I've got better at keeping the ball on the tbale, I have a tough time keep it low...
  • For me, I feel, it pairs well with inverted rubbers that're hard'ish, and less bouncy, and with sponged LPs...
  • I feel, this blade is really good for looping,even with slightly slower rubbers ... I've used it with Xiom Vega Europe/Omega, and although it wasn't on par with the likes of OFF/OFF+ rated blades, it was well-above average @ looping...
  • To me, the blade seems in Def+ to All+ range
  • I don't quite like it for flat hitting...
  • It's okay'ish for push/blocking style, close to the table, but better @ chopping, away from the table...However, I find it hard to keep the chops low...Could be a technique thing and/or the LP rubbers I'm playing with...

It's probably fine (even for looping) with long pips on one side, which reduces the weight. Put two sheets of max inverted on it, though...
