The Xiom V1 is a very light carbon blade for aggressive close-to-table players. V1 is very hard and speedy with a thickness of only 5.4 mm, which allows sufficient deformation required by modern aggressive top-spin players. Special hard wood is used as surface material, and "Energy Carbon", which provides very high energy efficiency, is inserted directly under the surface. The result is the combination of high speed and compact feel. Both close-to-table topspin and hard smash are very easy. On the contrary, players will easily be able to enjoy extremely precise ball placement with blocks. The stability and security of V1 even gives players the advantage in topspin against topspin.
