the stiga optimum sync is a 3 plie blade and is a relatively light blade weighing about 80 grams and available in 32dif handles, stiga calls their handles different from other companies just for your info, FL is legend, ST is peter and AN is winner,the sync is a quite fast blade in the allround to offensive range, the control part is really nice to good, topspin is ok but it may lack some power, so is hitting, blocking is ok, the best part is that it is a very good blade for a controllable allround game,

I have been using this blade for about 3 months now with PenH grip. With Palio Macro Era for FH and Palio Macro Pro BH.
In my opinion this blade is great for close quaters quick attacks. Control with this blade is really good to an extent forgiving, with quite a large area of sweet spot.
One thing for sure, before you glue your rubber to it, try hitting the ball with this blade and compare it to your previous blades.
It gives you the feeling that its a very hard blade, just adds confident or the illusion that your shots will come thru very fast and furious.
Overall, I am happy to have this blade in my collection. Just bought the Hybrid Wood NCT and will like to see how it fairs with this.

Just a note, according to my own exp with this blade, the Palio Macro Pro rubber seems to be a better match with this blade with an all round fast attack and looping experience.

Optimum SYNC is a REALLY LIGHTWEIGHT BLADE!!!! Be careful before you buy, as it is really thin (only 3 layers i think) and extremely light, so it is terrible for attacking. It has nice control though, if you are a defensive player, this might be the blade for you. Its misleading how Stiga lists this blade as an OFF blades, because it is definitely not an offensive type. The wood is not terribly durable, so make sure to seal well. The shots are pretty fast, but contain little force. In my opinion, not really worth the money.
