Giant Dragon NunChaku
This would have to be one of the coolest looking and
sounding blades on the market!

- Giant Dragon Blade
Nunchaku Off+/5 ply
- Quality/craftmanship: Blade is made of excellent
quality and has a smooth finish.
- Weigh: around 80/85 grams
- Head size: 157 mm x 151 mm
- Thick: 7 mm
Construction: 5 ply blade with center core of some
sort Multy Compound System balsa mixed with ayous and outer ply made of
fineline I think, or some sort of black coloured plywood.
I tested blade with following rubbers On F/H Tenergy05 / B/H Tenergy 64.
I felt like this is more of Off- to botom line of Off blade rather then
marked by GD Off+ compared to Acoustic, Xiom Power Carbon and Violin, GD
Nunchaku is significently slower, baring
in mind I used same rubbers on all 4 blades
Blade is very steady and short game is very good
Blade is very good for serving short serves as its not bouncy and ball
stays bit longer in contact compared to other 3 blades
Slow loop is easy to initiate and produces lots of spin especially when
looping with side spin another thing loops are a lot shorter then with
oher blades which was confusing my opponent.
Looping mid distance:
Looping from mid distance from both wings was ok still have decent power
and very good spin on the ball
Looping away :
Here I felt lack of power compared with other blades and had to dig up
and use more arm power then usual to get decent power loop that would
put opponent under pressure.
Blocking was medium fast with excellent control and easy placement.
Countering loop close to table of the bounce was great as blade isn't to
fast so I had very good control and and counters were mostly strait
I felt like it lacks feel compared to other blades but usually I felt
same for other balsa blades to. Nunchaku
is steady and MCS system did strengthen construction to create more
solid feel on hard impact over all blade has medium feel and no
vibration at all
With Tenergy 05/64 smashing is pretty easy so had no problem here
possible slower then with other
blades but enough to win points and pass opponent
Well to me blade looks really cool but you guy's judgeby the pics, LOL
For the price this blade is very good value for money and for players
that like balsa blades
Blade is for tactical allround offensive game. Very effective with short
serve/push and slow loop to
initiate attack and draw opponent in to lift the ball.
Not to good for fast topspin exchange just because lacks bit of power
but consistent with great control.
