The Nittaku Barwell Fleet utilizes the original design of the Barwell blade. While the plywood construction is identical to its predecessor, the core plies are noticeably thinner. The main difference is the addition of two synthetic layers. These two Glass-Fiber plies enhance the blade's power and give the blade a harder feeling. Made in Japan.

22/09/2017 Great combo of control and power Review by Kai Ho
The racket is a bit long-ish compared to TSP Black Balsa and Darker Hinoki. The centre of gravity is further away from the handle. I wish the top of the handle was slightly heavier to counter balance this. So this feature of the racket takes a little getting used to.
That said, the long-ish feature makes it slightly easier to do close-to-the-table flicks especially those down-the-line flicks.
Surprisingly for close-to-the-table shots, the racket allows me to do 'dead' balls; it has a dampening character. I can also do near table 'power' shots with it. Further from the table, the fibre kicks in, giving 'power' when needed. It can also help me 'fish' ie absorbing the incoming power of the opponent's smash and looping it back either as a very high ball or a counter-loop-smash.
So overall it gives a great combo of both control and power. Just that price-wise it's a little steep.
01/05/2017 Great Penhold Blade! Review by Brian Wang
I like this blade so much! It has amazing control, full of power even away from table, and makes looping easier. I'd recommend this to any penhold loopers.
16/04/2017 Excellent product Review by Jenny
Powerful and good control. Backhand loop is much easier.
04/11/2016 Like this blade very much Review by xidong313
This blade with Tibhar FX-P rubber on the FH forms a very good combination of
speed, spin and control. Thanks fast delivery from TT11, and will continue to order from it in the future.
