I'm not sure if this is a question that can be answered, but I thought I'd give it a shot: how should I go about switching a blade that I used as a junior that isn't manufactured anymore? The blade is Steffen Fetzner Topspeed (Joola). (I started playing again after almost 20y hiatus.) You can see the blade in the first results here: https://www.google.com/search?q=fetzner+topspeed+joola&espv=2&biw=1268&bih=931&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjKgOSs1ZLRAhXIKiwKHaz8DssQ_AUICCgD&dpr=0.9

I do like the blade (now with Tenergy rubbers), but the fact is that it's pretty much irreplaceable and not in the greatest of conditions either.

I haven't quite followed the equipment scene and I'm not quite sure what to look for. I really like the feeling of the blade and I guess it's pretty fast too (not comparable to modern fast blades, sure, but anyhow). There's a thread on some forum about the Fetzner blade: http://mytabletennis.net/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=64448&title=joola-fetzner-topspeed-from-80s

So with the multitude of choices nowadays I'm not even sure where to start. Anyone got any suggestions based on these pretty vague descriptions of the blade? :-)

Hi Jarno,

Let's see if anyone has any suggestions for you.

It would be good to find something comparable for you. Or someone may even have an old one lying around...
