Sorry about the grave dig, does anyone have any experience with the OSP Ultimate and Virtuoso/V+ compared to modern offerings of composite blades, out of curiosity? My partner swears by these blades all the time.

Hello, this is my first time to post on this forum.  I have spent weeks here researching the experiences of players with osp blades in making a decision as to which blade to INVEST my money.  I ordered and just got a Virtuoso- from Megaspin here in the US.  I really like the blade! Wonderful touch and control.  I would say, on average,. I keep 2 more balls per game on the table longer so I end up winning the point.
 That is very significant to me!

PLLsystem, when I got my paddle I was very surprised and disappointed to find out that the blade was OVER 2 years old!  The card with it stated that it had been made in 2013 06/24.  Is this common?
I feel like writing to megaspin.  That is what I would call very old stock and would like to have known that before I ordered.  Could that affect playability of the paddle?   Please help.  Thank you.SmileThumbs Up

Patrick, is that due to just aging of the wood, in your opinion, or from changes in the blade from being played a lot?Ermm

Its a matter of preference. An older blade isnt necessarily better per say. However, most older players will prefer an aged wood in their blade.
Again, its preference. Same goes for weight. Half the people here, will dislike a blade is above 90g.
But I cant use a blade below 90g, feels too filmsy. I guess, being 22 does have its benefits. Again, its merely preference.

First: Speed can be achieved by all wood. Composite in a blade is more about structural integrity and maybe faster bounce while offering a bigger sweet spot (same bounce over a greater area); so if we can do that with all wood why not? Ultimate from osp can do it. They are butter soft, fast and not that heavy at a 88g average. The hitting and blocking is phenomenal, really; the rallying becomes natural and the blade encourages playing a game that favors longer rallies. The nice feel and good results give birth to a virtuous cycle that may induce enlightment: This I how I want to play!!!

P.S. your site today give me connection failture (database error)

Yes we had hosting problems thanks for your attention. Well I think it is fixed.
V'King is faster, and a bit more springy from perpendicular aspect.
Also provides koto feeling.
And for sure it is lighter and if you are looking for OFF speed but lighter solution V'King is for you.
Hello mr.Platinus, I bought V king from a US distributor - Megaspin 6 months back however only recently i have started to play with this racket and i simply love its feel and spin. One thing i wanted to point out is mine when weighed said 90.2 g however the tag that came along showed 88g . Could this be due to moisture in air or keeping the blade unused outside for long time ?

Some months ago around february, I sanded down the conic handle on my Expert +. The result was amazing but the handle curls around my palm being attracted by it's temperature,  thus changing the head angle in the process and greatly affects my  strokes, more so in looping where the arc of the stroke is vital when achieving a quality slow or fast loops. 

For this, I've tried so many ways and got so many surprising results but non were permanent due to that bending attribute in the Expert handle.

Tough I've thought of switching to Virtouso which I think is not such a bad idea at al and would surely get one for me later, I've chosen to stay with the Expert for now due to its variety of performance that I continue to discover.  At this time, it is a serious power looping beast as well as an aggressive allrounder  (this is w/o adding or changing anything on the head).

Once again, I have now made a great  shape on that handle and would like to keep it. I thought of ways to harden it before, such as adding hard wood fillers externally, but all end up in disappointment. This time I'm thinking of hardening the handle itself, targeting the soft part that is somewhat gummy.and temperature sensitive,,by dipping it on a wood hardener solution for a length  of time.I don't know if this is a good idea, is there anything you could advice me with on this?

Your thought is greatly appreciated...thanks!

Here is a Special custom made blade by Palatinus of the Old Stiga Oversize Clipper my coach uses. My coaches Shao Yu Oversize clipper blade is no longer made and todays present Stiga Oversize is very different. I have played about a hour on it and it is very similiar to his blade....Very Nice.SmileBig smileLOL

I will hopefully be posting a drawn out review over the next few months. Presently i am hurt with a hamstring strain and will miss the Teams...So sad.

Is it possible that your trainer tries the blade and then tells his opinion?

In fact i had 2 high level players and one of the senior coaches try out the blade. Please note this blade measurements were taken with a digital caliper of Shao Yus Stiga Oversize Clipper blade(8 to 10 years old).

1. Shao Yu(My coach) and former U.S.A. National Team member: He played with it for about 1 hour. He commented this is the closest blade he has tried compared to his original stiga clipper oversize. The handle felt very comfortable. He did comment the blade had some vibrations due to the newness of the blade and has not yet broken in. His original blade has been through countless amount of games and training. His blade feels a little more solid with less vibrations. My Coach did tell me since it is so new, it will take at least 10 to 20 hours of play before the blade starts breaking in. He also mentioned when his original Stiga blade was new that it had the vibrations too. The blade should feel more solid and have less vibrations after some time. Usuallly the older a Stiga blades gets...It gets more solid, more crispy, more dwell time as it ages. This is why people pay so much money for older Stiga blades. He likes the blade and may order one after the Joola Teams events being held during Thanksgiving weekend.

2. GaoYan Jun, Ranked 46th in the U.S. and Coach. He hit with it for about 15 minutes and he liked the blade. He mentioned the blade had alot of feel. But he prefers his blades a couple of ounces heavier. This blade was made to Shao Yus blade specifications and weighs around 90 grams. He was also interested in ordering a blade too.

3. Senior Coach S****s(He helps train Jennifer Yue Wu...USA Team member for the 2016 Olympics) He mentioned the blade was very well made and had good balance. He also mentioned right now it felt like a Avalox blade from the 80s and 90s. He has seen a lot of blades and his positive comment is very welcoming.

My Coach and me will continue to play with the blade. Hopefully it starts to break in more and more. The shape, size are 100% perfect and even the wood grain looks the same. I would say the blade plays about 85% when compared to my coaches blade. This percentage is in fact very high already...My Coach and i have been through all the new versions of the Stiga oversize clipper and it does not play well when compared to his. 

I will continue to update this post and add some more pics when possible. I am happy to answer any questions. If it werent for OSP/Palatinus, i would have never found a suitable blade for me and my coach. Thanks OSP/Palatinus Big smileBig smileBig smile

March 8th 2016 Update

I was out since September till January with a bad sciatica and now i have been back for about 1 month now playing table tennis. I have about 15 to 20 hours of play with the blade now and i can feel the blade getting crispier by the day. As i have played with the Stiga blades before and found the top veneers to start peeling off after a couple of reglues, i have not encountered this situation at all with this custom made OSP blade. I can say this blade is of very high quality and plays better and better as it ages. I can say OSP is the brand i will use from now on. Thanks Palatinus and hopefully will order another blade soon. Big smile

In depth analysis of the OSP Virtuoso CRWi UNI OFF.

After reading a lot of positive things about OSP and their popular model Virtuoso it made me curious what's the fuzz was about. Until end of 2015 OSP haven't had any commercial blades with carbon and when they announced their new carbon blades I knew, I had to get one!

I had to find out who this manufacture was, so I decided to get a blade and chose the new OSP Virtuoso CRWi UNI OFF which is pretty similar in composition as my main blade the DHS W968

Unboxing:
When I opened the box which the blade arrived in I could smell the varnish OSP use as sealing. It was like being in a carpenter's workshop and by the looks and smoothness of the edges of the blade one could easy tell the blade was handcrafted. The quality of the Virtuoso CRWi is so high some would say it is better than even Butterfly blades!

I received my blade according to the specs I wanted and from the data card the spec are
Head size small 157x150
Weight 87.3g
Thickness 5.63mm
Handle FL Custom Master shaped
Balance center/head

Composition: Limba-Limba-Carbon UNI-Ayous-Carbon UNI-Limba-Limba (not confirmed)

The box includes the Virtuoso CRWi UNI OFF blade, the specification and greeting card from OSP and a beautiful ruler for measuring net height and rubber thickness.

Drive
When driving with this blade I could immediately feel the the high amount of control even with hard rubbers like H3 FH and T05 BH. Compared to both IF ALC and my DHS W968 this blade had more feel which made it easy to direct the ball where you want it.

Loop
In the opening game you could really feel the ease to make open ups due to the dwell that the limba outer ply helps create. Controllable slow spinny loops is done with less effort on both sides with a medium arc. You can really feel the ball dig into the bat. When looping from mid distance I could feel the carbon layer being kind of activated and adding extra speed to the loops. To compared the speed to other blades it would be similar to the IF ALC, but maybe a bit less speed. For my personal preference the speed was lagging a notch. The blade plays like if you loop slowly the blade acts like an ALL+ blade and with higher load it acts like an OFF blade.

Short play
In this part of the game the control just made the it easy to receive slow and relative fast incoming services short with good quality. This means low receives and with good amount of spin if you are able to snap the ball.

Flicks
Banana flicks it just amazing with this blade! Again the dwell and amount of control is just evident going over the table and grab the ball like the ball is sticking to your rubber.

Conclusion
The esthetic of the OSP Virtuoso CRWi UNI OFF is just amazing and I can not pinpoint anything negative about the blade or the quality. I personally would have chosen a faster blade if I was to use it as my main blade. Perhaps the Ultimate or Martin would be have been a better choice for me. I would recommend this blade to players who plays close to the table and like to take the first advantage by opening with spinny loops or flicking over the table. Also the player that likes to keep the table with controllable blocks. If you would a carbon blade with an all wood feel this is a really good alternative!

Hello ! I've just ordered a Martin off pro, two days ago. I was hoping it was in stock but it seems not, as the blade has not been shipped for now. I hope it won't take too much time to receive it !
There are not many comments on this blade. I's a little strange, its description is lovely.

I'm used to play with fast blades, viscaria, a long time with DHS 506, and recently DHS W968, Nittaku acoustic carbon... and I read that Ultimate is not so fast, but I tried one from 93g and it's really powerful on my opinion.

Does the power depend much on the weight of these blades ? I asked for 91-92g for the Martin off pro. Will it be much more powerful than the heavier Ultimate ?

I'm so impatient !
