CONTROL-Blades with high control ratings are easier to use for steady, consistent play. Blades high in control are usually lower in speed and visa-versa. A well designed blade combining soft and hard wood plies (or carbon plies) can however produce high speed on fast shots with good control for soft play. Note that like speed ratings, control ratings were provided by the manufacturer of each brand for comparisons within that brand and not with blades from other manufacturers.
