I got the Fire Dragon Touch... I've played with a handful of other high end and well known blades... Which makes me sure of myself in recommending this blade... It's a great blade. I've used a couple other gambler blades as well... and this one is the best by far in my opinion. It has great control and great speed/power if you have the right technique.. Highly recommended.
Perfect blade, feeling like a Donic Appelgren Allplay V 1 with a heavy booster by the apparently Kevlar Carbon fiber (Aramid weave) Played with many blades over a strech of 4 decades. I have the following rating Feeling 9.5, Speed 8.0, Control 9.0. This blade is easily compared with the Apolonia Tiago and Lui Shiwen only lighter. NO REGRETS. The handle ST is thin but if Gambler adapts the handle model tothe Donic Appelgren ST it would be a home run hitter for Gambler.4stars is given.
Received the Fire Dragon Touch blade few weeks back after a long time played with Butterfly Zhang Jike ALC and have been playing with these blade every day. It is medium fast blade with medium/hard wood feel. Good for loop, smash, push and serve with very good control. Thanks Zeropong.
I recently switched to this blade and I really like it. It is a pretty fast blade, kind of like Butterfly Timo Boll ALC, but it has a bit more control, which makes it also easy to play defense as well as offense. I have used Butterfly Timo Boll ALC for two years and Butterfly Zhang Jike for one year before I switched to this blade. I gained a lot more speed and power using this blade because of the good speed it provides and that it is also a bit heavier which generates a bit more momentum for my stroke. This is definitely a great deal given the good quality and compare to other ~$200 blades that are of similar quality.
The craftsmanship of this blade is amazing. I equipped it with the new butterfly rozena rubber. All I can say is this blade is fast and have amazing control. The spin and speed of the ball when looping was very low on my opponents side causing him/her make a lot of unforced errors. Try this blade out you will be amazed :-)
I've had the fire touch for a month, it's a great blade. Since it has inner layered fiber, the blade has great control when it comes to short pushes and defense. However, it doesn't take a lot of effort to get your power through to the fiber layer with proper strokes. It's definitely not as fast as blades with outer layered fiber, but it's not slow either. I have hurricane 3 neo on the forehand and gambler shadow on the back hand, I'm pleased with the setup. The blade is larger than other brands but doesn't feel too much heavier. I will definitely recommend this blade to intermediate to advanced players. Beginners are probably better off with a 5 ply wood blade.
