I need a blade to put my FH joola express ultra 1,5mm red short pimple, and my BH Kokutaku Blut. 868 Super Tacky 2,2mm black. BH i loop, block and chop and FH i like to hit the ball and block. I like blades with good control to make the BH flip when im receiving. My favorite blades are BTY Primorac and Stiga Allround Classic WRB or Evolution, but everybody says that i need a harder blade (balsa, carbon) to take real advantage of the short pimples. Can you advise me a good choice? Thanks :)

Hi Alexandre,

A faster blade will mean that you can get the ball travelling faster with the short pimples.  However, if you feel that you lose control and make more mistakes, then faster is not necessarily better.

I think it is always better to make sure you feel comfortable with the blade that you have.  After a while you may start to feel ready to go for something faster but for now stay with the blade with more control.
