+1. It is a great blade at an affordable price. I played with the P700 exclusively until I decided that I like 5 ply blades a little bit better.

ejmaster, what is the size of the pg7's head?

same as TBS I think.

TBS headsize is definately smaller. I have both in my bag atm and it's pretty clear when i swap rubbers over that have been cut to a TBS :)

Edit: Meaning, PG7 can lead to a head-heavy setup with the right (or wrong?) rubbers.
 
The 3 pg7s i have are 160 mm. Larger head than tbs. And this is a must about this blade. Without the large head and its flexibility the blade loses its sharpness. I have heard some people saying that they had pg7 with smaller head.
Because the wood is not so solid the blade has a good balance and do not get head heavy.

i have 3 pg7s and they are different. one stiffer than the others and less powerful. building and quality is the same and they all play well. i like the 2 more flex ones.
 
This happens in a lot of blades. i had in the past several mlc and there were differences because power and weight. same with tb alc, musko, etc

Yasaka Galaxya or Yasaka Offensive 40. Both around 85g, both 7-ply. The Galaxya's outer ply is slightly softer, so it depends what you want in terms of feel.

description says 5 ply head and 9 ply handle?  The median is 7, but the blade isn't really 7 ply...

I know it is only a 5 ply blade, but I am very pleased with this one I got:
http://www.tabletennisdb.com/blade/joola-flame-extreme.html

I like the extra thick handle, fits better in my hand.  The slower ones have a thinner handle though :(

Wicked fast wood blade, somewhat faster than the timo boll spirit I used to play with.  Very stiff, but great control as far as I can tell, better than TBS at least, but I was raised on an all wood blade so I am biased.  I don't like how the new carbon blades feel.  They feel dead to me.

If this blade were about 5 grams lighter and slightly slower, but with the same thick handle it would be perfect.

you could also go for sk7 which probably has similar shape to power-7
more similar than any other brand at least.
and the ply construction is exactly the same as power-7.
I mean in thickness of layers, not sure type of wood used.

Do they ship internationally??????

I have called them for you. The bad news is that they ship goods only in Hungary :(
I am sorry about that.
You should ask information about it at your national distributor. Good luck.

Sometimes I get hand cramps from using heavy blades during training.  So for competition I like lighter setups.  Maybe I'll get it for another training blade.

Weight chart from manufacturer will have tolerance that sometimes can exceed 10 grams. If you want to select the weight, you have to contact the seller and ask them what is the available weight alternatives. I always do this with iruiru.
Is iruiru a person on the forum?  
Or is iruiru an online store?

www.iruiru.com, it's a store. Shipping is a bit high but quality of service is top class.
