Top 7 fastest? Slowest? Most expensive?  Least expensive? Def/Def+/All/All+/Off-/Off/Off+?  Most popular? All wood or composite?  Used by Pros?  Used by amateurs?  Discontinued?  Still in production?  Shakehand? Flared, anatomic, or straight?  PH?  CH PH or JP PH? 

See why your question can't be answered?  And since you only want opinions, everyone's list will be different based on their own experiences.  Good luck finding an answer to your question.

You should specify what kind of a player you are and what you have liked so far. That way, people who are similar to you can post their favourite blades, and you will get a more useful list.

(I am assuming that you are asking for this so that you can buy a good blade for yourself. Correct me if I am wrong.)

I'll just put the blades I've had the most fun playing with.

Waldner Dicon JO shape- thin and soft but surprisingly stiff, with classic shape
Joo Se Hyuk- basically a large offensive blade, which is kind of uncommon
Allround Classic- great control and flex
Firewall Plus- light and stiff, excellent reversal with OX LP
Persson Seven- better feeling than Clipper and cheaper
Gergely T5000- lots of fun to play with, satisfying hard feeling with a unique handle and headsize
R*1- the craziest blade I've ever played with, like Firewall Plus cranked up to 100
Alis volat propriis

Gergely

Actually, with a sufficiently large answers data set, statistics can be used to answer almost any question that reasonably comes to mind, and more... even Neural Nets could be employed. This is why this one could be a clever OP, after all... Thumbs Up

Ok boyz don't be to harsh on the new member, where is ur welcome to the forum,etc,etc?????

To the OP....if u are young/not so/retired ,or recently started ,if u play with any blade Now ,what grip, etc...like the others asked u would be better if u post that

If u are young and have close friends that u play with,and they have Big name blades,buy yourself one close to that, u know for the sake of keeping up with them...If not, u gonna go back to ur old father asking for more money a month later

Since there is no other info what u like....and after buying 50 blades myself and as many rubbers I got to the conclusion that for the regular basement at the beginning with more and more trips to the PPong club and down the road some private lessons with a high level player,start with 5 ply and go no more higher than 7 ply all wood TOPS ,Soft Feel and some flex and little vibrations

Forget about reading to much into this forums, there were many asking the same though.....ask uncle google,he knows them all ....lol

My own preference right now are,of what I have, but depends a lot in what blade u actually get,cause there can be a lot of variation in same blade feeling model.....5 ply wood,in this order ....I buy them @ 85+\- 1 gr
     OSP virtuoso-.....osp virtuoso+...Osp V-king....made custom for ur preference,grip and weight @ $100
     Nexy PeterPan can go from 78-86 grams....@80 go are flexible,soft, I use 5 gr weight alround the head@ $80
      
                    7 ply
     Tibhar Force pro blue handle. 84 grams   Soft, some vibrations,    86 and up stiffer than 5 ply but still soft feel. $ 50
                        For my game better than Force pro black handle and Clipper .have 3 of each
                         Even better than Nittaku Ludeack 7 pl for me....soft but stiffer ,although very good blade
i use over grip on my blades and recently found the best till now and I bought many of them to be ...HEAD super comp...
Bought it from Amazon $6 set of 3 made for tennis racquet, but U get 6 pieces long enough to cover p pong paddle handle and can be stretched so won't add much weight....but that helps with the paddle balance anyway
      
Ok,my longest post ever and u may comeback now saying that actually u play with ZJK SZLC and are 2200 or higher player.....LOLOoooLLLL

OP probably means top 7 favorite blades. If I remember correctly there was a similar thread, but for 5 favorite blades instead of 7, and there was a lot of interesting choices.
