Got the new DHS 08 blade the past week , I try to upload the pictures but I have issue resizing it, it’s a 5 piles with 2 layer of carbon, it’s on the lighter side, under 90 grams, it’s has that ping and crispy feel, kinda like my JHS but not as stiff. Great control on chops , because of the carbon you can put a point away with your FH, I can see why the CNT choppers are going to this blade ,

Do you mean the 08x blade? The only one I could find on their website.
Is it common these days for defenders to use off- blades? Who do you say is using it?

It's off- though. But yeah they write that the head is slightly bigger on tt11. And it's probably around 6 mm I would imagine.

You guys are correct, it’s a 08X , I have been using a JSH blade probably the past 7-8 years, seen they are not making it anymore, been trying to find a replacement, most blades on the market doesn’t have that crispy feel with good speed . The 08x is not in anyway a replacement of the JSH but it does have that crispy feel that I like , not as fast but faster then the Diode , great quality, 2 layer of carbon , I had to play with more sponge on the pips because it was slower then JSH, omg what a good decision , even more spin on chops , it lands a little longer , I play with D05 on the FH now I can go back playing with H3 because of the lighter weight , I will give it a few more week but I think it’s a winner

Have you checked the new Diode V?
Been testing Diode (95g) vs VKMO (95-96g) side by side... same rubbers. Liking it so far for its speed. It's VERY close to the JSH blade, both speed and flex. Maybe it's a tad slower but honestly I can't tell...not feeling that much difference. Pips on Diode feel FAST.

I have a VKMO , it’s as fast but it doesn’t have a feel that I get from JSH blade , I thought the Diode was supposed to be a close replacement but I actually didn’t like that at all , it was something in between the Hardraw Shield and JSH , the pips is going to be ok , wanted something faster for the FH , which I think the 08 has , IMOP

Blade: DHS 08X
FH: V11>Extra
BH: P1-r 1.0
Got the blade yesterday and hit some balls with the robot, my early impresions are:
- It's like a inner carbon version of the VKMS with a very thin carbon layers and what you would expect from it: a little bit softer, slower, more flexible, more linear speed (less kick on hard impacts)
- The handle is very thin and light (maybe the same as the pg7). The blade feels very head heavy unless you play OX
- Feel is good from the inner carbon: solid, low vibrations but good ball feedback, large sweet spot
- With my very limited play I think it sits as far as speed/hardness/flexible between the chen weixing and the vkms: VKM < CWX < 08X < VKMS < VKMO < JSH
