I am an intermediate table tennis player who has just joined a club (would definately not have made it this far without your videos )
I am very happy with my current bat (a pre-made Palio Master) however I was thinking whether or not I could mix a fast blade with slow rubbers, as the next bat I get will probably be customised.
This means that you could start off with slow rubbers (which should make it medium speed overal) then when you want better, faster rubbers you can keep and save money on the blade.
What I've just suggested is probably what a lot of people already do (unless there's a flaw which I haven't realised), but then I don't understand why people would buy a similar blade to their rubbers when they can do this.
Please can you say whether you would recommend doing this or not
Glad we have been able to help so far.
I am not a big fan of fast blades as I think they give you less feel. You can get as much speed as you want or need out of the rubbers as you step up.
I think a control type blade with a medium speed rubber to start with would be best. Then as you progress from that you can just up the speed of the rubber.
