Hi, its about time to buy a new blade and im wondering what to get.  Ive been playing at clup level for a while now and i want a blade that is light. Im not fond of real heavy blades.  I know you guys sell blades and even finished bats but im looking for something light, any suggestions.  Oh and i dont want to break the bank haha. 


alot of top spin

alot of power

good control

Hi Tyler,

There are literally hundreds and hundreds of really good blades available for sale. The best thing to do would be to ask a few of your club members and try their bats. Then you get to see how they feel. Pick one and then stick with it for at least 6 months so you can focus on your technique.

Because there is so much equipment, I can't (and don't want to) keep up with all the different combinations. To help people out who are not sure what to get we offer a few options that we know are good. From our selection for you I would recommend the PingSkills Touch with Yasaka Pryde. It has good control thanks to the PingSkills Touch blade and you can get plenty of spin and power with the Yasaka Pryde rubbers.

However as I mentioned there are so many good choices. Pick one and then forget about your equipment (you will still need to change your rubbers when they start to lose their grip) and focus on your technique.

If anyone has some specific recommendations for Tyler then please leave a comment to help him out.

the lightest blade I've ever tried is a Donic Cayman.  The one I had was under 50g!  However, it's probably not ideal for an attacking style.  The one I use at present (Xiom Jazz) is not particularly light (at around 80-85g, it's not heavy either) but it FEELS light because it is so compact with a small racquet face and a nice balance (not top-heavy).
