What should I expect when transitioning from a 5 ply all wood blade (Limba/Spruce/Ayous) to a inner carbon blade (thin carbon) with the same wood composition but overall slightly thinner (5.8mm to 5.4mm)? Would the Nittaku Sieger PK50 or the Nittaku Fastarc-G1 complement better the carbon blade. I play both of these rubbers presently the G1 being a bit softer and bouncier and the PK50 being tackier and harder. I'm an attacking player 48 years old playing 2 to 3 times a week at the local club.
The carbon may be a little faster. I would stay with the same rubbers so that you can feel the difference in the wood first.
If that doesn't feel right then you can think about making a change to the rubber. If you change both elements it will be difficult to tell what has contributed to any changes.
