Is any one able to give short summary of what they thought of the bkade. Sounds like a Joola air carbon competitor for half the price. Might order one if they can do one in 70-72 gm range and try gewo return drive 1.9 on fh and short/ medium pips 1.5 on bh.

Hello,

The review was in German, and without subs .. So, pretty much useless for me ..

I'd like some real-world feedback/review of this blade, from someone who's played with it, long-term ...

Also, anyone playing with Long Pips, on it ?

Apparently not available on AliExpress (as yet).

Seems to be a $30-40 blade, some European vendors have it. Not tabletennis11 though. It's definitely in my weight range.

Yep.. The low-weight is surely one of the factors, why this blade is appealing to me ...

From what I've heard/read, this blade was designed by Sanwei in collaboration with Spinfactory.de, primarily for the European market. Which is (perhaps) why it's not available on AliExpress..

Ah... it's a semi-OEM deal. A "specially ordered product", much like Tibhar MX-K.

It's lightweight because it's a balsa blade, so it'll be interesting if it's got the usual balsa drawbacks.

Here's what it looks like:

and it's available for sale at, among other places:

Yes.. Yes.. already went through all these links, before starting this thread ... What I'm looking for is, feedback/inputs/opinion from someone who's been playing/played with it for a while ... The blade is not exactly cheap for me to just buy it, and then find-out how it is ..

Sure, but since I went to all the trouble to look it up myself, no sense in NOT posting the photos and links. Someone else might find them interesting/useful. Anyhow.. I suppose eventually someone will actually post a review. And there won't be any until someone does get one and try it, and it might take a while. Heck, I'd do it, except for the reason you just stated.. :lol:

Aha...!!! It's in the 2020 Sanwei catalog... apparently Hinoki face plies, and unidirectional carbon. Strangely no mention of balsa.

So is the Fextra (and there's also a 5 ply hinoki faced Fextra Allround):

This makes me hopeful these will show up on AliExpress eventually.

One thing that's weird about this catalog - it's ALL English.
