Dear Alois

I am in dilemma. I have two old blades to choose one for new rubbers (Yasaka Rakza 7 + Rakza 9). Which blade should I use for new rubbers. Conditions of both the blades is good (not excellent).

1. Donic ultracarbon senso (very thin layer of glue is not removable by rubbing despite all efforts; previous owner placed too much local glue on it). Very good blade... I am using it for last one year and its set on my hands.

Carbon blade, 7 ply.

2. Butterfly Joyner. (2-3% part of blade's upper surface (on extreme left  side) is damaged on both sides while putting off the old rubbers). Generally ball never get hit on this area of blade. I used to play with this blade earlier and I like. Main thing is that this blade is light weight and helps me on my backhand strokes alot.

Allwood blade, 5 ply.

Please advise which blade should I use.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Ujjval,

I would go with the Jonyer because it doesn’t have the layer of glue which may effect the performance.  The damage on the sides won’t make any difference.  Remember though that the blade makes very little difference.

Hi Ujjval,

You should be able to get ride of the old glue with some Acetone and hard work.
