    Posted: 08/12/2017 at 1:32am
I have been playing with a yasaka mlc sh blade for many years now. I feel that I need a stiffer / harder blade to get a bit more oompff...

I play an offensive forehand drive attack style game with an effective backhand punch block. Can also win points with bh smashes & flicks and push proficiently.

I am not looking for a very fast blade, just something more aggressive and not too expensive. Say, not more than usd $100...

Any suggestions? Anyone tried the yasaka ek carbon yet?

Hello Shakepender.

I use the Yasaka Ma Lin Carbon too, but on Penhold grip.
For me, the YMLC Blade is very comfortable to use. More to a control- Carbon blade like the Waldner Senso Carbon.

The EK- Carbon outer ply is made of Oak Wood. (My friend has one blade also in Penhold)
Might just be a little harder/ stiffer than the Limba on YLMC.
Speed and omph wise, the difference for me, was negligible though.

On the other hand, the Yasaka Extra 7 Power was very lively on high gears.
Too powerful for me in fact, in penhold short-game.
But comparing to YMLC, the YEO7 is a much faster blade with more oomph!

Yasaka Goiabao 5 is a good upgrade for YEO. It is much faster but still has the "wood feeling".

I have used 3 YEOs and 1 YEO7 but I don't like the carbon version.
