I personally like playing with light bats.The current bat that I am using now weighs about 120 grams. Is this type of bat common, as I would want to buy a new one soon.Please also include some bats pre-made or custom bats that weigh about the same.Many Thanks!

Hi Jun Hao,

That is very light for a bat.

What kind of bat is it?  Others may be able to help you out with this one.

It is probably a speed rating.  Hard to tell unless you compare it to what they have as ratings for other bats.

Sponge-less pimples players gain a lot of weight on their setup and can therefore afford to use heavier blades and forhand inverted rubbers. 120g with 2 inverted rubbers is possible, but exceptional. You'd have to use the lightest blade (about 60g) and the lightest rubbers (very soft and thin sponge). The whole thing would be very easy to use for short and quick action shots (like the flick), but it would surely lack power for smashes or fast topspins, and stability for blocks. So I'd say it's probably better to develop your technique with a racquet that has a more realistic weight. On average I'd say 170g.
