Spruce Pressing Technology (SPT) "Made in Germany" Our finest quality, produced by top craftsman in honour of the Swedish legends. Top workmanship, made in Germany. The new World Champion 89 blade series is exceptional. It celebrates the 25th anniversary of Sweden winning the World Championships Team title in Dortmund in 1989 (in a historic 5-0 final win against China). DONIC is exclusively producing three new blades in Germany, in honour of the legends Jan-Ove Waldner, Jörgen Persson und Mikael Appelgren. Hand crafted and employing the most modern precision and technical know-how, in acknowledgement of the supreme mastery with which the Swedish Superstars played. All three models have incorporated an Italian Spruce ply which is over 200 years old. This is combined with a 3mm strong centre veneer of Kiri and for the Appelgren All+ model, Ayous combined with a new Carbonfleece Zylong webbing (CF2), exclusive for DONIC. Only the finest saw plies of our own production are being used. These are more stable than the usual knife plies and are a guarantee that the blade retains its playing characteristics without the normal deterioration. A specially developed drying procedure reduces the moisture content of all three types of blade from 12 to 16% to only 4%, resulting in a stable and light blade (Waldner and Persson blades weighing approx. 85g and the Appelgren All+ blade only 80g approx.) Each individual blade is subjected to a special cold press for 24 hours. The employment of our unique 3D-technology and the most recent bio technology ensures that the handle is in perfect shape. This is a fast blade but with great feel and ease of control. Designed for players who require a balance between speed and control.

I got penhold blade, I am surprised with quality of this product. Very good with control and good speed when you need to force your game. Really good if you have long pimple for backhand.

I don't think it has been commented on, so I will give a different perspective...The handle (ST) is shaped quite oddly. It tapers down toward the head of the blade, so in essence you feel as if your hand is falling into the top end of the grip. Also, it seems pretty small in size. Not something I personally enjoy. If you're used to thicker handles, this one will certainly feel a bit flimsy. Other than that, the blade is fairly stiff itself. Not a whole lot of feel. I've got about 10 other blades, and this new Waldner one sits at the very far back! Nice quality and all. It didn't fit my preferences or playstyle. If you enjoy fast, light, and hard blades with little feel -- you might give this one a go.

Perfect handle, perfect tempo, delicate and fine touch, awsome control, huge loops with epic sound. This blade definetly hits the standard of the most expensive butterfly blades. And the price is 23% of a Butterfly SZLC blade. Don't get fooled by the speed 9,2 atm, this blade is not that fast, it is nearly the same like waldner senso ultra carbon with wider range of speed from ALL+ to OFF. This is my all time best blade. An offensive blade with fine touch, works well with modern offensive and allround rubbers, has a solid feel when hitting. A vey decent attacking blade with outstanding control. Don't be scared of the head thickness, the handle is very comfortable and slim, you won't notice it. Before that I was found of blades under 6 mm head thickness. UPDATE 2017.MAY! I bought an another for my second blade. Tested rubbers: Baracuda, Baracuda BS, Bluefire M1, M2, M3, MX-P, EL-P, FX-P, MAXXX 500. Despite being stiff ,this blade has a very soft touch, which comes handy when spinning the ball. Nearly every time, I get some compliments, that the sound of my blade is music to the ears, when I am looping. Works really well with hard rubbers, gives them a fine touch, so it is easier to fine brush some opening loops or to recieve serves. MY setup is M1 (FH) and M2 (BH). The blade has an unique dinamic range, so it needs time to get used to. It is better then ALC blades, because it has better touch, more power when needed. It has less throw angle, which is unlucky in some situations, but comes in handy when facing a looper. This blade has far enogh power far from the table, yet it performs well close to the table, when hitting down the line shots. Serves are slow and spinny. J.O. Signed both of my blades! :)

Powerful blade with speed you can accelerate with accuracy and excellent ball placement. Blade can be as powerful as you want it to be. Blade works wonders if proper technique is used when delivering or receiving the ball. Works very well with soft rubber. Very impressive blade when blocking and very good with a quick hit off the bounce. Huge sweet spot with unique sound. The flared handle is smooth and very comfortable and fits very well in my hand. Blade and F3 Big Slam weighed out at 170 grams which is light and just right for me. Super nice blade with great characteristics and very enjoyable to play with. 5 STAR BLADE!

Very nice new Donic blade with two outer plies of spruce, one Zylon/Carbon and Kiri.I fitted two MX-P in max. It's a very good looping blade. Compared with the Legend Carbon it has a nice softer touch, is a littlle bit slower and has a bit higher throw.It has less vibrations than the Legend Carbon but you alway feel where and how you hit the ball.I like it more than the Boll ALC because of it's softer touch. But I like more the ST handle of the ALC or the Legend Carbon which is the same.If you like powerful topspins this is my recommendation.
