They made a new 2 sided blade where your hand slots in between them. I am not happy.

No I haven't tried them. It just feels like an unnecessary change

I haven't tried these but I can't imagine they would be better than a traditional blade. Has anyone had any experience with them?

"Broadmann Blades are not yet approved for international competition, although they apparently received a good reaction when recently presented to the International Table Tennis Federation. Company representative Fredi Brodmann told us that they expect the ITTF to approve the Blades later this year."

Uh oh

Hi Ppingskills,

                     Certainly more forward energy-speed can be imparted into ball, but less spin because there is no handle or rather it becomes difficult to rotate your whole wrist to play spin, but heavy backspin can be imparted on the ball.

Also short balls can be received a bit easily I guess because all we need to do is to bend our hand over the table and just throw the bat under the ball.Blocking shot would involve side-on action with this bat, and with handled bats it is a bit square on.

Not to forget that sticking the rubber also becomes easier, and bat becomes a bit lighter since handle part is not present.

 

Those blades actually may transform this game into boxing.

Need to make a separate game for those bats, like hand tennis or something

A set was given out as one of the prizes in a tournament a couple years ago, but I thought they were only a novelty gift...was I wrong???
