I noticed that 7-ply woods are faster and more linear than 5-ply woods. For me, with 7-ply woods it is very comfortable to do fast blocks, and with 5-ply wood blades it is very comfortable to topspin the short balls on the table or close to the table.
For example, before changing to carbon blades, all-wood blades are recommended for beginners. Is there such relation between 5-ply and 7-ply wood blades?
I think it is more about the quality of the wood and the speed that is important. The 7 ply tend to be a bit faster which is why it will feel better for fast blocking and the 5 ply will feel better for lifting the topspin.
I think start off with a slower wood and then progress to faster. Also make sure you find something that feels comfortable for you.
