My mother in law has a 20 year old ST handle Banda Dacota blade, which I had the opportunity to glue and test with DHS Tinarc 3 on FH and T05 on BH. The blade has a rather long, but average thick oval handle, which can hit your forearm when doing some pendulum serves. The head shape is the classic egg shape, which is J.O. Waldner's personal favourite.
This old piece was dried out completely after 20 years, so the contact of the ball was crisp with a moderate flex. The tempo of the blade is a decent OFF-. Perfect for looping and aggressive play, works with many rubbers up to medium-hard sponges.
They are very rare pieces.

Excellent attack blade, excellent Swedish wood quality, excellent speed. I thought it was an off the Butterfly Petr Korbell, but this blade is called a premium for a quick game. Good rigidity and control. Great touch. Blade lightweight and excellent balance.
