Hi
Has anybody tried one of these blades? Or even just heard about them? The problem with my Rossi Force (which I love) is the poor quality of the handle...
Any comments are welcome
thanks

I have two Joola Guo 3C blades and both seemed good quality and close enough in weight as to be indistiguishable. They were made in China, I think other Joola blades were/are made in eastern europe so they may differ in quality as I've heard complaints in the past.

I haven't tried those latest two blades.

Joola Markovic has good speed with great feeling
and I had no problems with the handle.

I havent played both blades for long time but I would say that
u have more control and variation with Markovic.

I spoke to Geoff about the fever yesterday. Apparently it's a great blade - sort of like the TBS and Maze.

Yes, the Fever seems to be a TBS-Maze lookalike when you look at the composition.

So in your opinion, Fever is faster than Markovic? How does Markovic feel? Hard, soft? Is it headheavy or well balanced? Can you tell me more?
Thank you

The Markovic is well balanced and feels stiff but not hard.
I would say its a little slower than Fever but still has
more than enought speed with the right rubbers.

But I really like the good precision and control about the Markovic,
so I would prefer it, not saying fever is a bad blade!

It seems that you have tried lots of Joola blades. Have you tried Joola Rossi Force? If yes, you could compare with markovic and that would be great

There was a chinese player in our club for 2 years and he played Joola
Rossi Force so i could try it, too :D
It feels a little harder and faster than Markovic.
I would take the Rossi Force for a blocking/hitting style and the
Marcovic for double winged looping style.
