Carbonado blades are manufactured in Sweden with carbon technology known as TeXtreme®. The blades are built with five layers of wood and two layers of lightweight TeXtreme® Spread Tow Carbon fibers. This unique and patented carbon is the first of its kind and has never before been experienced in Table Tennis. The special TeXtreme® Spread Tow Carbon is flexible in only one direction, either flexural or torsional, making it possible in the manufacturing process to adjust and improve the ball trajectory and speed to accommodate playing style. The two layers of carbon are applied in a 45 degree angle or a 90 degree angle. Carbonado 190 is constructed with Carbon layers in a 90 degree angle with flexural bendability, giving the blade a stiff feel with great stability and high speed. The longer and flatter trajectory makes it an excellent choice for players who want to dominate play with high speed strokes. The Carbonado blades offer the player a personalized Sweet Spot. The Carbonado 190 with flexural bendability gives a higher Sweet Spot.

26/08/2023 Good balance between speed and control Review by Patrick Lee
I am writing this review after playing the Carbonado 190 for a couple of months and comfortable with the behaviour of the blade.
I was playing with a Carbonado 145 before buying the 190.
First of all, the service at tabletennis11 is always excellent and they shipped me a blade with the weight that I requested in my order.
The Carbonado 190 is an excellent blade with good balance between speed and control. It shares similar characteristics as the Carbonado 145, but the 190 is slightly faster and feel harder than the 145.
I switched to the 190 because I find the 190 is more suitable for my game better than the 145. I drive and direct hit the ball most of the time. The Carbonado 145 is a little slower and has softer feel, the blade holds the ball a little longer than the 190. So the Carbonado 145 is more suitable for lopping and you can hit the ball with a lot of topspin.
A comment on the Penhold grip, I found the Carbonado series Penhold grip is uncomfortable and you really need to sand the wings and the grip down, especially if you use reverse Penhold backhand.
Overall, the Carbonado 190 is an excellent blade with an off to off+ speed and good control, you would be happy if you try it and wouldn’t be regretted if you buy one.

16/11/2020 Good enough Review by Benny Pan
I read on TTgear that said 190 is very similar to Butterfly Timo Boll ALC. So I thought I would give it a try.
The finish is of top quality. It produces a loud metallic sound. Nothing like ALC or ZLC. It's very hard with little or no flex. It feels just like traditional carbon blades.
27/05/2016 5 out of 5 Review by Eric Tjokro
Definitely an offensive+ blade in my opinion, its very fast and I needed some time to adjust to the blade since I was playing with a 5 ply blade. I certainly have tried other 7 ply blades but this is the fastest 7 ply blade i've ever played with. One thing thats lacking bout the blade is control, the speed is really fast but control is just ok. However, choosing the right rubber might cover up the lack of control.
31/12/2015 Nice blade Review by Michael Wong
I like the control of the blade. For a fast blade this is very easy to control. Faster than I need. Even at a professional level I don't believe you need a blade this fast. Even though people say it has a lower trajectory, I believe you can produce any arc with the right technique with this blade. What I didn't like about the blade was the weight. Although it's an average weight mine weights 86g and is considered a light blade for many I like it more on the 70s side. My set up with the skyline TG3 and calibra spin LT weights about 177g. Still can get enough speed for my topspin shots. For wrist shots close to the table might require more effort which can cause injuries.
Chinese hard and tacky rubbers works great on this blade. Hurricane 3 or 8 might be a better option for short game than the TG3. I like the handle a lot. What I didn't like about it is that when you sand it part of the carbon layer will smudge on the surface. Also sweat stains are hard to get rid off. Otherwise if you don't mind any of this. This blade is great. I got this blade for 140$-ish which is very cheap.
09/07/2015 Nice paddle for penhold looper Review by Xin Zhou
This is my second 190 Penhold. The paddle has enough support for rubber, but still feels soft. It has good touch. You can feel the ball on your hand. The forehand loop is very powerful; blocking is fast and has good control. The penhold reverse backhand loop is very good! Maybe the weak point is the front attack; not as hard as a 7-layer paddle. It is for looper.
