Same shape,same thickness, same quality wood so same blade since KTS. Only real difference is the backside cork. They have not been released yet.

That's the same blade as the discontinued RSM G-MAX.

Is it a better idea to invest in rsm gmax while still available? So in 10 years, they will be as super expensive as kts nowadays.

Even 30 years from now there will be still jpen players! Everybody thought this style was obsolete in the 90s and then the Koreans produced Olympic champion.

I think it is sold out at most places and the ones left are around 80-85 grams and they are not good.

I think the new Gmax print design is much better, it looks much more refined. There will still be players in 10 years but I doubt anyone cracks the top 10 or wins an Olympic medal. The plastic ball has hurt choppers and speed based players. It's harder to drive a ball past good players at mid distance. Shakehand and Cpen are better for the modern game.

I don't quite understand. Why light weight 80-85g means not good? Thanks

It all depends on what you like. There is no best weight. Some jpen players believe the heavier the better. I know one player who only prefers blades over 100g and another who prefers less than 90g.
