im planning on getting a new custom table tennis racquet I currently have Mark V rubber on both sides with a Joola Carbon Plus blade, for my new racquet I am thinking, tenergy 80FX on both sides with Garaydia T5000 blade, will that be a good combination or not? If anyone has some ideas please let me know, im looking for a racquet with a lot of spin sped and control

Hi Shiven,

The Tenergy will give you a lot more spin and speed.

Others will have some ideas for you.

Hi Shiven,

Sounds like you are ready to spend the big bucks! :) Tenergy 80FX is a huge upgrade from Mark V rubber, good choice there. Your blade choice is perhaps a little subjective. From your selection, I take it that you are a power player who likes to end points very quickly, am I right? The Garaydia T5000 is a heavy blade (93 grams) with the most power and speed in that series (Garaydia) of butterfly blades. It is a great blade for those who end points very quickly. Keep in mind when you go for power blades like the T5000, it is harder to loop the ball. The dwell time is less with more power.  

However, you conclude your post that you're looking for a blade that has a lot of spin, speed, and control. It really depends on upon your style of play. Are you aggressive, well-balanced, defensive and so on...From the looks of it, I think your more offensive minded. 

In my opinion, the Garaydia ZLC is the best in that series because it is more well balanced, easier to loop and yet still has good power and speed along with good control.

Also, the CCA Unlimited from TIBHAR is one to consider.

I'm currently playing with the ITC Premier XC which has less power than my butterfly super zlc. However, the dwell time and power along with it's control are better suited for my style. For more power the ITC Strike Carbon which came out this year is pretty good, another blade to consider.

By the way, I use Bluefire JP 01 Turbo and Stiga Genesis. Genesis is like Tenergy but a fraction of the cost :) JP is a good looping rubber. 

I wish you well my friend :) Good luck, let us know what you eventually do decide on :)

I have used Mark V. Currently using Rakza 7 but when I tried one of my clubmates bat (Stiga Allround Blade with Tenergy 80fx on both sides) I really hated it to fast without spin and feeling. thats what I think
