I used this Andro Super Core Cell Carbon OFF blade with Yasaka Mark V 1.8 mm on forehand and Andro Hexer HD 1.9 mm on backhand. This is a perfect setup for me since I could do forehand loop easily and consistently with Mark V. I got good feeling everytime I touch the ball for my forehand loop so that I could control well for every shot. It' so enjoyable with slow and control Mark V rubber on an Offensive Andro blade. I am waiting for Andro Hexer HD to be torn out and then I will replace it with Butterfly Sriver EL on my backhand. I am so glad that I bought this blade since it's cheap and very controllable with Mark V rubber on my forehand. Highly recommended.

Very fast and hard blade with a unbelievable nice feeling.

Okay, I have this blade with Hurricaine III neo rubbers on both sides. The blade seems super stiff, but slow at the same time. Blocks come off slower than I expected. You kinda need to push them back instead of letting them just rebound off the paddle from your opponents momentum. Doesn't too much play like a carbon blade at all. I usually play with an all wood blade and this seems to have a lot less ball feel, so takes some time for me to get used to looping with this blade. You need to change the style of stroke a bit to loop with this blade. The stroke needs to be more like a drive. That being said, the loops I can now pull off with this combination are amazing! Low and spinny, with a super curve/arch to them. This has a lot to do with the rubber I think. This blade is not for a beginner, but for a more advanced player. Kind of a quirky blade, you can't be lazy with it or shots seem to go into the net. Also, the head shape is about the kinda small and doesnt seem to have as big of a sweet spot as a traditional carbon blade. Everything said I rate this blade an 8.

Ok, this is my second (and last) review about this blade, after 20 days training with it (and with gewo proton rubbers assembled on it):
As I said before, it's not as fast as I supposed it should be (remember: it has carbon fibers, but is slower than butterfly timo boll spirit, or much slower than butterfly primorac carbon off+). But I think it is more accurate on controlled shots.
It's also quite easy to get used to it in few days. Remember that I was playing with a T11 galaxy blade (faster, but with less control), and I felt like if I was playing lots of years with it in just few hours.
The handle is very comfortable (or at least for me :-)). It has also very good sound when hitting the ball.
Very good passive blocks in near and mid-distance play, a lot of control when "topspinning", but lacks on speed on smashes (at least with this rubber combination).
That's all, folks!
