Can we use 100% carbon fiber made racket ? Is it allowed by ITTF? I read that some minimum wood layer is required.......

Hi Keval,

Here is the relevant section of the rules.

2.04.02  At least 85% of the blade by thickness shall be of natural wood; an adhesive layer within the blade may be reinforced with fibrous material such as carbon fibre, glass fibre or compressed paper, but shall not be thicker than 7.5% of the total thickness or 0.35mm, whichever is the smaller.
