Im a lefty power looper that opens wide angles with his BH, but my FH is much stronger than my BH. 

Do you feel it's still suitable for ABS ? Maybe GA8 50° could suit my FH?




I have tried JRE but I can't answer you questions because I only play for a session and to be honest I don't really click with hinoki since I have used mostly limba and koto blades.

But the reason I reply your post is because I ENVY YOU.......   You play with your set-up for 5 years!!!!.   I just can't do that.   Although I don't consider myself an EJ, still I can't fully commit to one blade.  Grass is always greener on the other side. Wink

I know RWV is nearly the opposite because the harder outer ply different/less dwell time but I would like to improve my short game and receives. I was really comfy with RW, but sometimes I struggled with short game close to the table.

We are talking about 200eur Joola blade, so you'll have to be patient.

Guys, can someone share information about blade balance with heavy rubbers like t05, mxp?
Let's say one side is heavy rubber like mxp and bh side midum rubber like Hexer grip or aurus select 

Is it gonna be head heavy with this kind of setup?

This blade was very popular judging by this thread.

So does anyone still use this blade with the ABS ball?

I have been using Joola Rossi Emotion for the past 4 maybe 5 years with T05 on my FH and Dignics 05 BH. The Dignics 05 was fairly recent, as I use to play with T05 on both sides. Is it heavy? Yep relatively heavy but I got used to it. I have some slower more spin loop oriented setup, and some pretty fast and stiff carbon type blades, but I have always come back to my JRE which for me gives the right combination of controllable offensive and defensive options. I stick to JRE because its just right for my skill set and its a whole lot of fun.

The new Rossi Emotion PBO-C is a great blade.  I've sold about 5 of them at our club.  It is faster than the original Rossi Emotion and just feels more solid.  I would categorize it as a slow Off blade or maybe even an OFF- blade.  It's definitely a great blade, with good control.  I played with it for a few months but when the new Freeze blade came out I started playing with it and really liked the extra speed it provided while still maintaining pretty good control.

I do believe it is. However, the blade on the photo above is not new Rossi Emotion PBO-c (for those who don't know, PBO=Zylon), but Rossi Emotion (with two layers of 3K-c or "triple carbon").

Puh, I just tested the PBO-C and in my eyes it is an the fast side of Off, more Off+ than Off-,
definitely too fast for me. Therefore I will offer it for sale this weekend

I finally bought the new PBOc version! A REVIEW Joola Rosskopf Emotion PBOc

Handle: Flared (103x25x34)

Weight: 80 – 85 grams

Thickness: 6.3 mm

Plies: 7 ply (Hinoki-Koto-PBOc-Ayous-PBOc-Koto-Hinoki) not actually stated in the Catalog but should be same veneers as JRE, just my guess

Speed: Off (Fast)

Stiffness: Medium Stiff   

Touch: Hard

Trajectory:  Medium Arc

Control: Medium to High

Would love to post pics of my blade but don't know how, sorry.

My main blade these past few years is a Joola Rosskopf Emotion or JRE. I bought this new upgraded version of the blade, the JRE PBOc since this was the newest edition of the premium Joola line,  and I thought would be an improvement. I needed an upgrade which I thought would level up my playing performance. And for such reasons and justifications, like all the other regular equipment junkies (EJs) would resort to I ordered this blade. So for this review, I may compare mostly to my old JRE as reference.

I used Tenergy 05 rubbers on both sides of this brand new blade. I used it warming up with several hundred balls on my robot. I used it to play a couple of games  at our club against my usual playmates. So my review of the blade may only be my initial perception, and I may add some more or fine tune my impression as I play with it more in the weeks to come.

The blade is finely made, precisely crafted. Quality is very high, finish is extra sleek. I suspect the blade may even be lightly sealed as it seemed to exhibit some gloss. No sharp edges that needs sanding. Top plies are smooth with the beauty of the Hinoki grain clearly evident in the ply.

The handle is flared,  identical to the size and shape of  the old JRE, which is relatively small compared to most blades. I use a rubber tube grip which gives me a more comfy chunkier grip.

When hitting with the blade, it produces a high “thok” sound which I found very similar to its 5 ply brother the Joola Nobilis PBOc. Hitting forehand to forehand drills, it is clearly evident that this is a quick blade, with the capability of some power when you exert effort as with most synthetic/carbon blades. I believe that this blade is a tad faster than the Joola Nobilis PBOc.

On soft touch strokes, such as returning serves short by the net, the blade was fairly controllable. Despite using TO5, the blade was controllable on soft short strokes. If you exert force and engage the inner material, then the blade can be fairly quick. And it has power when you go whack with it.

The sweet spot for this blade is large. I never felt a bad feeling even when I hit near the edge of the blade face, so huge sweet spot. This gives bigger tolerance for inaccuracies in hitting the blade.

Hinoki top veneer ensures spin generation is still adequately high, maybe a tad less compared to the old JRE. But this blade makes up with a lot more speed. If trajectory of the old JRE is high arc, this blade would be medium. Not really as flat and long as most fast carbon blades. Speed is fast and would be a notch higher than OFF but still far from OFF+.

On serves, it takes some getting used to, compared to my old JRE. I still need to learn to use it on most of my serves. But on the serves that I could adequately do, like the pendulum side-under, the spin generation coupled with the speed was ridiculously wicked. So the blade has a high potential for spin generation on serves if you know how. Serving short is easy and manageable.

On opening of loops, angle of the blade also needs some adjusting compared to my JRE. Trajectory of the ball is longer with arc not as pronounced. Once you overcome that, the blade has a pleasant feel to loop and drive with power even if you step back from the table. The feeling is pleasant when looping. So this is a fun attacking blade that will allow you to topspin and drive ad infinitum. It is a topspin looping machine on steroids. On blocking it is firm, stable and fast on the rebound. The blade shines in blocking, and punch blocking, nice crisp feeling when you do.

On my old JRE with T05, I can feel the rubber bottoming out with a peculiar “poink” sound when doing counters against strong drives. In the new JRE PBOc this does not happen, the ball rebounds with a strong quick pleasant feel. Probably has something to do with dwell time on the blade.

With T05 on both sides, this blade should be heavy but somehow because the blade is light,  it does not feel that way. So it must be a fairly balanced blade.

The blade demands some skill to use effectively. It is definitely not a blade for beginners, maybe more useful for intermediate to advanced players. Skilled  offensive topspin players capable of attacking from both wings, topspin oriented spin variation players, power spin players  are best suited to unleash the full potential of this blade. This blade will reward the active player more than the passive one.

Speed and power, touch and control are two paired qualities that seem to be inversely proportional in most conventional blades. For the JRE PBOc, Joola seemed to have found the right mix without compromising feeling and control for speed and power. It still is a fast blade with the capability for soft controlled touch. Nice soft touch in the short game and a lot of speed when hitting.

For me the blade is a bit on the expensive side, but for its qualities, it is money well worth spending, if you know what I mean. (wink, wink) 

All these are my  impressions of the blade gathered  from a few sessions of play. Of course I talk and shoot bull more than I can actually play. So all these should be taken with a grain of salt. Only my opinion for whatever it's worth. Should you find this review useless and a complete waste of your precious time, then my apologies.

Compared to Nobilis the JRE PBOc has more Speed, a little bit less Control, same Hardness, a wee bit less Flex.

And no, I have not tried switching rubbers of the Nobilis, Rhyzer and T-88 were the rubbers I tried with it. I presume I will still like Nobilis with T05 and I believe spin generation and dwell time will improve somewhat.

Oh and the Ayous inner ply composition is actually Kiri in the new JRE PBOc
