Hi Amekun,

They are just ratings on the speed of the wood.  Def is the slowest and Off+ is the fastest.  Def is an abbreviation for Defensive, ALL is an abbreviation for All round and Off is an abbreviation for Offensive.

If you are looking for a racket with more spin and less speed an All round would be best.  Unfortunately I don't know which types of woods will give you that speed.

Hi Alois, What are effects of using Soft sponge rubber with off+ /stiffer blade? If possible can you please ellobrate all combinations so players here will get brief idea and can select perfect rubber and blade combination. Thanks, Rajesh

Some advise I'd like to give from experience. The speed ratings for blades is only constrained within a brand. For example, my xiom Allround blade is faster than my LKT Off- blade.
