HAI NGUYEN Asked 3 years ago

Hello coach,

I am thinking to build another paddle for myself.  I would like to have inverted on FH to play offense and anti-spin; Long pip on my BH to play defense, chop and cut

1. What kind of blade (brand name) can play defense, inverted rubber and long pip sheets; can you recommend me?

2. What kind of Inverted rubber is good for offense and anti-spin 

3. What kind of Long Pimples sheet is good for BH defense?

Please, recommend me brand name, website...I don't mind about the price.  I don't want to buy cheap racket.  Thanks

Hi Hai,

I won't recommend any blade in particular but it sounds like you would benefit from an all round blade.

As far as rubber there are literally hundreds.  What are you using at the moment?

One thing Hai Nguyen-you want to use inverted rubber or antispin rubber?
I am a bit confused by your word choice.

inverted rubber on FH; long pip on BH.  

Right now, I am using butterfly Timo Boll all around with Butterfly Tenergy 5 on FH; and TSP Curl long pip 3 R on BH

I am having butterfly Jun Mizutaki ZLC blade (offense blade) and I am thinking to put Butterfly Tenergy 5 inverted on FH; and TSP Curl long pip 1 R on BH.  Can you give me any advices? Thanks
