The blackjack is known for really great small strikes. Although the large strikes might look terrible, by the time the opponent can reach the easily-clearable part of the large strikes, the blackjack user could have made additional strikes that causes the easily-clearable parts to no longer exist.
The blackjack has very good small unbruised strikes. However, due to a change in the blackjack's drop pattern (August 2010), it is no longer a good idea to repeatedly send small unbruised strikes, as fast as possible. The blackjack is still extremely good when moderate-to-heavy bruises are involved, and/or if you mix strikes and sprinkles. In other words, you can still send a lot of strike attacks with the blackjack, but if you are literally spending the first 2 minutes of the game spamming strike-after-strike-after-strike, then you might be a bit of trouble.
Although the blackjack's 3-group single-row sprinkle pattern isn't going to win many sprinkle fights, having only 3 groups will slow down the frequency that their opponents can make strikes. Also, having a group of 4 at the edge of its sprinkle pattern gives the opponent a very easy place to dump all of the balls that they don't immediately know what to do with.
