Hi Alois,

for a beginner like me - would a difference of 0,2 mm in sponge thickness really make a NOTICABLE difference?

(The blade I use which was recommended in a shop is a Stiga Allround Classic with Andro Powersponge - 1,5 mm backhand

 and 1,7 mm forehand. Now I wonder whether changing the 1,5 into a 1,7 mm would be reasonable or exaggerated...)

Thanks in advance!

Hi Thomas,

That would be a reasonable combination.  The 0.2mm won’t be very noticeable.
