GAMBLER BLACK WHIRLWIND
Black Whirlwind by Gambler. Black Whirlwind has great control and flex, perfect for the all around player who wants the ability to generate large quantities of spin while maintaining a very steady short game. This blade has great balance and plays very light and nimble. Note that while the blade is stamped DEF, this blade in speed and control lands solidly in the ALL category.
This is a solid entry level blade. You're not going to find premium wood selection on it, but it's a balanced and decent performer.
Very good blade. Has had lacquer finish that even the high price blades don't have. It is ALL- I am a 1650 rated attacking defender and I love this blade.
Awesome blade for the money. Handle very comfortable. Just picked it up again after one year of not using it ( usually use offensive $150-200 blades) not sure why I didn't just save money and use this. Tons of control very linear progression of speed.
