Hi, coach!

Sorry for such weird question.

Is it possible to play by penhold blade using shakehand grip? If I use grip tape.

I am asking it because stiga stopped producing my favorite shakehand blade stiga CC7, but they still produce CC7 penhold blades.

Hi Ardak,

I think it is difficult to use a Penhold blade for shake hand because the handle is shorter and will not fit well into your hand.

 Thank you coach! 

Can it be reconstructed, remodeled into shskehand blade, if I give it to wood master? Will its balance and characteristics be damaged? Or its not worth to do it?

Hi Ardak,

That is possible to do if you know someone that has some woodworking skills. It won’t upset the balance and would be a good solution.

Thank you, coach!

In our city there is a man who has good woodworking skils. He repaired many  broken blades as new. He is very famous among  TT players. Thank you, coach!

Stiga CC7 shakehand  blade is my first love. I missed it so much! I  will by its penhold version anyway.  If even after reconstruction it won't be playable shakehand, then I will own it just to feel its bounce when I miss.
