I keep a sample of Hadraw VK almost like brand new, but that's another handicap: it's discontinued nowadays and i don't fancy to shell out an arm and a leg for another collector blade.

I also gave it a shot  to the JRE in the past.  For me, it was the most hideous, crappy and dissapointing blade i've never ever tried; perhaps I had  too many expectations about it du its hyped, or maybe i tried with some rubbers that couldn't match but in fact, i  felt too mushy, o it  was too rubber-dependant but it wasn't my cup of tea neither.

About other such least know blades i'm not got to hesitate at all; they're not distributed in my homecountry and it's not worthy such hassle. Better to go for anything easier to find, affordable such as any Samsonov Force Pro (the blue one) or that classic Persson Powerplay. Actually there's no risk since they pretty affordable.

Sorry for being that picky, but i own more than 20 blades and tried dozens in the past.

 I tried Clipper CR & Ludeack: not my cup of tea. CR felt more catchy and softer, but somehow bouncier. For me it's a hassle when grabbing those thick blades specially the snap during the service. It was weird but i had the feeling I  wasnt able to generate  the same amount of spin as RW5.
I'm so used to it to my former RW that can't handle anyone.

I've come across with a replacement: Ma Lin Extra Offensive is really affordable, easy to find, hard outer layer (walnut), and woody feeling.  Maybe it's a tad slower but it definitely fits the fill.

Great..... Clap

I actually started using Yasaka Extra Offensive for the last two weeks.  I have the blade since it was introduced.  I remember that I did not like it that much during the smaller ball era, but I find it very good now.  It suits me well.

I was kind of torn between Donic Waldner Offensive JO shape vs. Infinity vps vs. YEO, but I settle now with YEO.

have you played with it? I thought the head was a little larger than your required specs. I am using either the YEO (yasaka ma lin extra offensive) and it is very nice and very controlled. Not super fast, but it seems super precise. I am stuck between that blade and an older discontinued 729 two speed blade (Hao Shao champion carbon) with a smaller head. 

This is a fun thread to read thru with some of the older wood blades mentioned.

I didn't feel head heavy at all... It was a bit slower, more flex and more pleasant feeling.  There's no point in any Innerforce o any other costy blade since I can do EXACTLY THE same. At 1/5 to 1//7 it's price tag.
