15/06/2019 By far the best bang for the buck Review by Jean ANDROUTSOS
This is a very well made, quality blade, with terrific feedback and good hold. It allows for a faster rubber without loss of control. The small-sized handle is the only drawback of the package, which you can get around with the use of grip tape.
22/04/2019 Fast and Spinny Blade - depends on style of play Review by Zane Cundiff
Relatively stiff until reached 186 grams, then started getting flexy and felt the movement when doing powerful strokes. Feeling is pretty good for a carbon blade, I found it works well with a softer backhand tensor (leaves a dynamic spin vs smash vs block play), I really like the MX-S on the forehand and was a dynamic rubber/blade combo where you have to do a medium amount of input but there was good speed and spin in short play and powerful loops were available on reserve. Overall a pretty hard dense blade that can do a lot. It is a little more so for direct spinny shots and not for lifting or insane sidespin play.

If you play Chinese style, do a lighter backhand to insure a well balanced blade, I made mine too heavy for a while and it was detrimental in speed and power.

Weight: 89-90 grams after sealer
Hardness: 6.5
Flex: (less weight) 4.0 ~ more weight (5.5-6.5 when not hitting sweet spot)

Handle was fine for me, I grip a little more with my pinky in most shots and don’t mind the grip size and I have sausage fingers for my size.
26/07/2018 Good Review by Mordecai
After using STIGA Carbonda 90 cpen for years, I eventually switched to shakehand due to a surgery in my hands. Been using DHS Fang Bo Carbon for around 6 months now.

Very linear just like Carbonado 90. The throw is lower. If you do a loop or loop drive on a backspin, you will be confident that the opponent will have a hard time returning it due to its low arc, but again, because the arc is so low, you will have to use your waist rotation and go more forward to carry that backspin.

Depending on the rubber, I think medium soft rubbers like Butterfly Rozena will suit this rubber. idk about the weights when it comes to sh blades, but I got an 88g one and it looked okay. Heavy at first due to transition from penhold but manageable. I've also heard that some people find it heavy, and I get that sometimes where my hands are just tired after a few games.

The FL handle is just right, fits my small asian hands but may seem small or uncomfortable to people with a larger frame.

I had a Rasanter R47 on fh. Too bouncy. I had the same rubber on the Carbonado 90, this was just too bouncy. It was weird. The ball trajectory was linear ( just like carbonado 90 ) but faster.

I don't recommend to beginners, maybe to people transitioning to more of an intermediate level, I want to say if you're around USATT 1800 then this will be good. Don't get this as your first blade.

As for playstyle, I play close to the table and it works very well with the linear trajectory. More of a counter hit off-the-bounce- playstyle. Think of Tomokazu harimoto or Miu Hirano. Don't get this if you're a fan of looping from far distance. Very good from 1m away from table but you'll need to exert more power.

Looping is good but it does suit the loop-drive stroke. Sweat stains from your hands will be seen in the blade after months of playing. The blade is pink at first, but the colour will go from bright pure pink to a more faded pink which looks cool because it looks like it's been used and can definitely lots of memories. Quality is very good, no edges, no uneven surfaces, and the box it came with was good presentation as well.

Check out Fang Bo in youtube to see what the blade can do.

Хорошее основание, бюджетный вариант Long 5, контроля больше, скорости меньше
29/03/2018 Greate Blade Review by Christoph Braun
I'm using the blade since half a year and think of continuing with it. My blade is 90 g. Not head heavy. Fast but with very good control. It has some flex, but not too much. The touch is hard, but since the outer ply is limba and the arylate-carbon is built around the core ply, not too hard. Very well balanced for me, providing good touch. The outer ply came very dry, so I applied some wood oil used for restauration. Used Xiom Omega V Tour first, but blade plays better for me with a bit of a down-sized rubber (e.g. Andro Hexer).
25/01/2018 Excellent Review by Michael Zurawski
06/01/2018 A stable carbon blade Review by Abhirup Bose
All the blades available in this price segment, this one is the clear winner. Ample speed, a huge sweet spot, good control and feel are highlights of it. One thing to mention it's FL handle is quite narrow compared to other brands like BTY, Tibhar etc. The handle is optimised for looping. Playing close to the board flicks needs practice. Overall a very good blade.
28/12/2017 I like it Review by Arman Zhumagaliyev
I like this blade. It is fast with a huge sweet spot. The only one cons is a handle, I solved it with hand grip tape. Thanks to TT11 for great service and delivery.
25/12/2017 Allround spin & speed Review by Alberto Nicosia
Buona la velocità. Buono il controllo anche sotto stress.
13/10/2017 great product for the price Review by JOON LEE
I tried it and it seems a little slower than my Butterfly Zhang Jike Blue Dragon but the control was better and it has more sweet spot than the wood blades. I am using it with H3 on FH and the Raksa 7 on my backhand. It works well and I can't go back to pure 5 ply wood blades. Great blade!
12/07/2017 Отличный выбор Review by Oleg AVERIN
Хорошая основа за недорого. Осторожнее при переклейке накладок, внешний слой хрупкий, так что лучше залакировать.
11/12/2016 Superb Review by R.Mihnev
Thank you TT11 for the good service and fast delivery. I using H3 Neo Provincial Blue Sponge 41 deg. for FH and T05 for BH. Very fast and controllable blade. The same feеling like DHS Long 5.
18/10/2016 I like this blade. Review by Alvin Sarmiento
A good blade for its price. I find it good to play from close to mid distance. Comparing to my other alc blade this one is a bit stiff. Over all a very good blade any rubber will go well. The only down side is the handle.
