Hello i had the HL5 and it played very hollow (like the stiga infinity vps) and was too uncontrollable and to fast sometimes, i think i will buy the DHS w968 do you think this is a good blade (good sweetspot ?) and better than the Hurricane Long 5 or will it be similar ?

thank you guys.

It will be similar but different. The W968 that I had was significantly less hollow-feeling than my HL5. The blade was about the same speed than the HL5, perhaps slightly slower based in weight, but I still had the HL5 of the blade sometimes delivering more than you put in, especially on powerful shots. It isn't exactly a linear blade

I'll ask the same question here that I asked elsewhere: given that both blades have "HL5" on their serial numbers, how does one distinguish between them while buying?

The W968 has very thin/narrow fonts whereas the commercial HL5 has rather wide fonts.

The real price of w968 in china is ~200€ but all online shops and prott sell the w968 very expensive. I find It in a small shop for 280 and its original. Attetion for the price mates. This shop request the material Directly to dhs.

Dhs IS not the problem. The problem are distributors and the online shops TT.

My new Blade has 91g serie number 13 national w968. The quality is premium versus hl5
