Hey coaches,

What type of blade do you think will suit hard chinese rubbers? Soft all-wood blades? Composites? Im using a rather stiff wood blade now. So what do you think about this?

Hi Jack,

I like a softer wood with the harder rubbers.  I think the hard rubber on a hard wood doesn't give you any feeling at all.

Players like Ma Long and Zhang Jike both use a chinese rubber on their arylate-carbon blade. So does it only depend on one's personal preference or is there really no good among that combination?

Yes it is a personal preference.  I just find it difficult to feel the ball with a combination like that.

Generally, softer blades with harder rubbers make a better looping combination compared to a stiffer one?

Certainly for me they do.
