Its the ma lin carbon. Costs 60% more than the gatien carbon. Very light at 76gm but hard in feel.

OMFG..! The Ma Lin carbon blade doesn't weight 76 gm, it weights 90 gm. ALso it's not more expensive than gatien carbon.

How's it compared to the Gatien Carbon? Or other carbon blades, e.g., Gergely, Sadius, Kreanga? I found the 2nd handed one in the market and am very tempted to try.

I don't know how it's compared to other blades, because I have only used 3 blades.

i think jake_my was confusing it wit the soft carbon yasaka which is roughly around 76-78 grams.  But i dunno about the 60% more expensive, but i know that in Japan and some other countries in asia where they sell the ma lin blade for a really expensive price.  i saw a chinese site where they were selling over 100 dollars and not 65 bucks just because it has ma lin's signature and all.

Thanks a lot

Sabito it's a little bit hard questions. The first blade I have at my won was a Stiga blade with some weird rubbers called triumf or something. It was a cheap pre-assambled blade. After that I try buying me a blade at my own, I bought Andro supercore def. I played in long time with my andro blade, but I didn't like it, it was to slow and the head-size was to big. Well after that I bought Yasaka Ma lin carbon, and I like that blade. The blade feels a little bit hard, that is maybe because I have varnish it. Compared to my andro blade the yasaka is faster and the sweetspoot is very big, so it is like I have really much controle in my strokes. I can easily feel my rubbers, because the glue soften the sponge up.

The Ma Lin carbon was definitely 76gm from the shop scales. No mistake! But I thought the stiga optimum was cooler in looks(same weight) and I bought that (that ws a mistake!). The Ma Lin carbon costs about $85 from the same place that Fadli told me. Fadli bought his gatien carbon for <$60. Fadli, what is the weight of your gatien carbon?

BTW, the weight of 76 gm for the Ma Lin carbon was for a penhold. I was surprised that it was so light for a carbon blade and closely examined it. It was very thin and thought that it was a little flimsy for the price. Chops, can you tell us how it plays?

I would say it's a good looping blade for the spin offensive. It works well with hard rubbers like: Rapid and Torpedo, I can easily get spin because the glue soften the sponge. The thing I was most impressed by, was I feel the blade has much more control, than my old Andro supercore def blade. That is maybe because the yasaka blade has a huge sweetspoot.

Thanks chops. Sounds like my ideal choice, the ma lin carbon. Do you think that it will work well with bryce? Best guess pls.

Well I can't say how it works with bryce, because I have not tried that rubber. The only thing I can say is Bryce gonna be my next rubber, when my torpedo has lost it's juice!

If you want more information about bryce try look at this topic http://mytabletennis.net/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=4798&KW=bryce

I use Bryce on most of my blades now. Cermet as an alternative if they don't have bryce. Excellent rubber. But blade combination is important too. So do let us know when you change.

Hmmm....Ma Lin soft carbon, that is pretty light for a blade.  is it really 76 grams?

it's pretty cheap too. about the same price as here but including shipping and handling as well.  Men people are ripping us off here.  I guess i will order from iruiru from now on.

i am currently using ma lin carbon... wow .. this blade got better feel then " Huricanne king " i use it with harder rubber such as chinese rubber... they are better combination as you can have the solid sinking feel into the sponge and catapult out from the blade... very good for fast block and couter loop with medium hardness sponge... so far i have tested with many rubbers and the ones with best solid touch is sriver,almana, H3,H2 , skyline 2 and 3  and 999 -T4... however, soft rubbers is not good on malin carbon as it is easier to pop up the ball when receiving and it doesnt stick to the top sheet as much when serving hence producing uncontrollable spin and trajectory... some of the rubbers that is not suitable for this blade is hammond pro , pro alpha, and tension rubbers... It is definately faster than gatien carbon yet has good control over block, spins and the best part is loop drive... my control on and off the table has significantly improved and that makes my third ball attack more threatening... hope this helps...

I have used Stiga super carbon and butterfly primorac carbon and both gave me a hard time when it came to blcoking but with my stiga optimum sync, i can block a lot better.

I don't want to get too many blades but would love to get either the yasaka gatien Extra or Ma Lin SOFT carbon after I can out which on is more like my Optimum sync.  The reason why I want to switch blades even though my current one is good is because I feel uncortable holding the blade during play and when doing rpb.  and i have heard people said that yasaka penhold blades are best for rpb and comfortable grip.

PLEASE HELP

I am planning on buying a new blade, but would like to know how much of a difference i am going to expect.  Currently, i am still using my sig. setup with the 896.  I am not too fond of the hard feeling of carbon, but everyone is praising the ma lin carbon as some super control loop machine.  My choice really boils down to the ma lin carbon or hurricane hao. Since hurricane hao is 5ply wood, i am probably more inclined to buy it.  Yet, there are absolutely no reviews on the performance of this blade. I really want the desire to choose the ma lin carbon, so somebody please impress me.
