18/06/2023 Best Value for your $ Review by PHILIP DAGODOG
Best blade for all around play. The blade will give you more control of the ball.
I use this blade with ox Grass D Tecs on BH and Yasaka Mark V on the FH and it is amazing. Best value for your money

19/09/2022 Very Slow Control Blade Review by Nathan Schult
Does exactly what I expected it to. Its light and very slow with an oversized head. if you swap rubber between blades this may be an issue. I paired this with C48 (max) and Der Materialspezialist Spectre OX. First time experimenting with long pips. I think its a touch slow and light for me - I think something like MXP would have worked better for my forehand. but the LP side really took pace off the ball, just like I was hoping.

14/01/2021 Beware of FH Review by Bob Afdlin
Good for defense, but not for attacking. If you want to attack on the FH make sure you use a FAST RUBBER! or else you will be dead meat. I made mistake and lost games due to this. But the sound and feel are amazing. Suits pip out as well.
25/11/2020 Handle is so Comfortable Review by Kim
One of the features of this blade is the handle. Comfort in its finest wherein you can twiddle your racket so easily. Perfect for the modern defender!

For Modern Defensive Play, It has very good control.
24/09/2020 Fantastic Donic Blade Review by Heronimo Tolentino
A well-balanced blade for the modern defender!
11/09/2020 Highly recommend Review by Ruslan Gunko
It has super control features and perfect for the long pimples BH and attacking rubber FH. I would say, it's probably, one of the best blades for the modern defenders on the market, especially if you look at the price/quality comparisons. To be honest, in the beginning, I bought it as an experiment because of the good price of it but had plans to buy Victas Koji Matsushita later. I thought it's good to try cheaper in case I'll like it. I was very impressed by the first session, bought the second one already.
P.S. Very sensitive wood, so you should be careful with edges, even with edge protection stripes.
01/08/2020 Like this wood the most Review by Nited Leangsomboon
Wood is cheap but with unbelievably perfect control.
05/05/2020 I like it Review by Eugene Gorlo
Good blade! Light and slow as how it's supposed to be. Bought it with a straight handle. Been using it for a while with long pimples "TSP Curl P-1R" on BH and short pimples "Kokutaku 119" on FH. Enjoying it a lot! It isn't my regular racket though I'm just giving it a try in defensive play.
The straight handle isn't really comfortable for me to use and the handle seems shorter but it's okay.

07/02/2020 Great Blade for Defender Review by Heronimo Tolentino
I bought 6pcs of this blade because it is the blade that suits my style as a modern defender. Normal rubber on my FH and long pips on my BH. This gave me a greater play for attacking and defending.
19/09/2019 Excelente Review by Ezequiel Correas Espeche
Excelente madera! La mejor...flexible y liviana ideal para los que tenemos una defensa moderna, sin resignar el ataque de drive.
10/09/2019 Good control! Review by Alexandr Buss
Отличное основание с очень хорошим контролем. Учитывайте, что это больше размер, чем обычно . Это защитное лезвие , но атака тоже хорошая. Я очень доволен этой покупкой и если Вам нужен контроль в игре покупайте без раздумий.
Excellent blade with very good control. Keep in mind that this is a larger size than usual. It's a defensive blade, but the attack is good, too. I am very happy with this purchase and if you need control in the game buy without hesitation.

16/11/2018 Best low-cost DEF+ blade Review by MATTHEOS KOTZIAS
One of the best (if not the best) low-cost blade for DEF+ (ALL- maybe??) that money can buy.

Excellent in chopping, very good at attacking!
26/08/2018 Nice thin blade Review by Yap Chun
Lots of vibration and used max rubber yet still quite light. Nice good feel on the handle. Overall its pretty good blade.
18/07/2018 Best Defensive blade with balanced attacking Review by Ian Dominguez
Defense is a tricky style. Defenders, espeically modern defenders, are always have to decide where to compromise on elements of defense vs. elements of attack (control vs. speed, spin vs. spin resistance, etc). Some DEF blades attack very at the cost of some safety against pace (Like the Joo Se Hyuk blade) and some are overly defense oriented at the cost of the ability to attack (Toni Hold White Spot).

The Defplay is set in a nice place, not too fast to where it doesn't provide safety and dampening, but not so slow that you can't attack with confidence and put away a point. Blade feel is a very personal decision, but for me it is the best looping defensive blade. it's not the fastest, I would rate it at ALL or ALL+ (but again, that's all subjective). It's flexy, which is a huge plus for looping.

The hollow senso handle is great for feedback, and you can really feel the ball with each stroke. Attackers who use stiff, carbon, muted blades find this to be disconcerting, but if you are a true defender, feedback is one of the most important aspects of chopping and chop blocking.

It has more feel than the JSH blade and the VKM blades. It is lighter than any of them as well. And it has more feeling (again, subjective to the user) than any defensive blade I've tried. And, it won't break the bank!

Wu Yang and Masato Shiono both use this blade proving it is viable at all levels.

15/01/2017 Great Review by Danny
What a bargain. Great feel, amazing control - and overall perfect blade for me. I can hit any shot whether it be FH, BH, chop, loop, side spin or just blocking - this blade is great.

The flared handle seems a bit more flared than most normal flared blades (if that makes any sense) and I prefer the straight handle for this one.
14/01/2017 The weight Review by eun keong park
Defplay Senso V3 offers fantastic control when defending and is very powerful when attacking. I use C7 1.0 on backhand and Hexer HD on forehand. But you had better be careful when you choose the weight of blade,especially if you have weak wrist. I recommend you to choose blade-weight 10~15 gramms lighter than what you have used.It is because the center of gravity of Senso V3 is placed on head-side, feeling heavier than real weight.
06/01/2017 great blade Review by raymond joe
the blade is great, has great feel to it I'm using tsp p4 with .5mm sponge. It provides great dwell time for chops, shots feel controlled and it is light. I would recommend a harder sponge for forehand, it smashes and loops great. Tenergy would work well with this blade too but its a bit rich for me. I use xiom vega asia which I like the feel of

31/05/2016 Great feeling Review by Ivo Thomasson
I use this blade with LP on BH and Vega Euro MAX on FH, it gives great feedback on chops as well as brushy loops and has an overall awesome woody feel. It's also very affordable and looks good, what's not to like?
31/03/2016 Love this blade! Review by Douglas Wruck
This is my first time using a defensive blade, and I absolutely love it! What I was looking for was a setup for a "modern defender", and this was just right. It has very good feel, and I can block and counter hit well with it, while also keeping the ability to win points off of forehand hits and attacks with my long pips.. I can already feel that both my defense and offense are improved, and for the price, you can't beat the quality of the blade. I highly recommend this blade for anyone looking to both defend and attack.

03/02/2014 Very good defensive blade Review by Ahmet Sözmen
Donic Defplay Senso V3 is a very controlled blade. It has a medium soft feel. Combining it with a 1,8 or 2,0 mm attacking rubber you may also produce powerful spin.
23/07/2012 One of the best blades Review by Jason S
This Donic defplay senso is a large headed modern defence blade. It weighs around 85 grams. It's not as slow as you would imagine because although it's quite slow on passive shots it does have a wide range and more than fast enough on the offense. It's a very accurate and consistent blade and makes more topspin when looping than any other blade I've tried (I've use 40+). The blade will be very head heavy with two heavy inverted rubbers due to the headsize, so is more ideally a combination blade.

On the other hand it's good enough to consider adding weight to the base of the handle or even reshaping the head for allround inverted play.

The ST handle is round and fairly small, FL is about normal. The finish on the blade can be a little rough as with most Swedish blades, but the quality is in the play where you really want it.

One thing notable is the bounce, sound and dwell of a ball on the bare blade is indentical to a 1960/70 Stiga Alser. Several profesional modern defenders use this blade and I can see why. Very impressive.
22/07/2012 Great blade at a great price Review by the_theologian
This is one of only a couple commercial blades which have blown me away. All around players should really consider it. This is truly a blade which delivers dizzying topspin.

Mine was 85.0 grams on the nose, just as it was supposed to be.

Thanks tt11 for this great blade.
