Hi Coach,

I am thinking of an upgrade from my current blade, which is the 729 C-2 All+ 

The rubbers I m using are:
FH Coppa X1 Gold (Max Thickness)
BH Mark V (Max Thickness)

Kindly suggest me a, light weight & moderate priced, blade that would go well with my rubbers and compliment my loop oriented style of play. (:

Cheers! (:

Hi Frendy,

We recommend the VEga Pro but there are hundreds of other good options out there.  If you did want different rubbers we may be able to organise it for you.

IMO, for looping, you need brush contact, your blade should be as light as possible. It would make you feel the ball better, switch from forehand to backhand and vice versa more quickly. You'll use less energy during play so you will not feel tired as much.

Most of the weight of your bat comes from the weight of rubbers, in order to cut down on weight, choose a blade that is light in itself coupled with narrow blade area. Narrow blade ensures that your blade carries less rubber weight. In short, with light, narrow blade, you can stick any rubber you fancy and your blade will still feel light. Don't worry about the narrowness of your blade, because you should hit the ball at the blade center anyway, so narrowness of less than 1 cm will not affect your game.

One such blade I recommend is Andro Super Core Carbon Light. Weight 63 gm without rubber. There are three variants, ALL+, OFF and OFF+. I use OFF and it's great.
