I have chosen to get the Palio CJ8000 Biotech 36-38 degree rubber and i dont know which blade i should get. I am just a beginner so i don’t know which one to get. Should i get a slow speed rubber with a high speed blade or a fast speed rubber and a slow speed blade?

Hi Varun,

I like a slower blade and get your speed from the rubber.  However, if you feel you are a beginner then get a slow blade and slow rubber as well to allow yourself to develop your skills without having to focus on touching the ball slowly enough.

How fast do you think the bat rubber should be out of 10?

Should i get a rubber with like a 7 or 8/10 speed, 9-10/10 spin, and  9-10/10 control?

And then combine this whth a blade that has 5-6/10 speed 9-10/10 spin, and 9-10/10 control.

Thanks again Alois For your help and remember i am just a beginner

I would go for a higher level pre-made bat.  The one we would recommend is the PingSkills Rook.  This will give you enough speed and a good amount of control to learn the strokes well.
