I have bought Yasaka Mark V both side as it is a good one.

Now am planning to get Tibhar Stratus Power Wood blade.

Is this a good blade for Yasaka Mark V or kindly suggest me some of the blades.

Price should not be very high, as am not a professional player I don't want to.

Thank you

Hi Bidda,

That seems like a good combination.  I don’t know the blade but others may be able to help.

The PingSkills Touch would also be suitable.

Hi sir,

I started playing TT since last 10 months, and  had been improving remarkably within a quick span of time. All these days  was using a very ordinary bat, which is below par.

Now I want to upgrade my bat with a better one. I'm confused whether to buy  "GKI offensive XX" or GKI offensive rago. Please help me choose a better bat. 

Note: My stregnth is fast serve, spin and placements. I moderately attack with forehand smash.

Hi John,

I don’t know what type of rubber is on those two blades.  They look like they are similarly priced so I wouldn’t worry too much which one to select.

Hi Bidda,

I have a suggestion for you...You may want to consider, Epox Offensive blade from Donic. Also, I would recommend BlueFire M2 max on both sides. If you more control, but still have pretty good offense on your backhand, then I would recommend Stiga's Airoc max (sponge thickness). The blade has pretty good control, speed and spin. And the M2, makes it easier to loop, along with good control, power, as well as great spin. Works good with plastic balls. Stiga's Airoc designed for the plastic balls, doesn't have the power as the M2 does, but has great spin, control and loops pretty good.

How do you describe your skill level in playing table tennis ? If u a beginner, Tibhar stratus is a good blade. The combination between 5 ply pure wood blade and mark v rubber give you so much control. Maybe u can think change your rubber to the faster one once you have developed your stroke, since mark v is not a fast rubber. But if you are an advanced player, you can go for carbon blade
