This blade originated in Sweden and has found favor with world stars. A new gluing technology was established during the development of the Ovtcharov Senso V1 blade, and was tested by Dima Ovtcharov and Li Ping who were delighted at the amazing feel and power of this blade. This 7 ply blade was developed to overcome the new challenges presented by the VOC ban. The inner plies are a combination of medium hard and medium soft veneers, designed to make this blade well suited to high speed smashes and topspin.Donic is in the process of changing the “Ovtcharov” blade line to the “Original” blade line. The Ovtcharov blades were very popular among Donic‘s customers, so they kept the design and modality of the blades unchanged and have merely revised the print and lens. They are the same blade. Once we run out of Ovtcharov blades we will be sending out the new “Original” version.
