I was wondering if players can use offensive rubbers and play offensive when using a defensive blade?.....just wondering

Hi Diego,

Yes you can play offensively with a slower racket.  I think it is actually a good way to get setup because the offensive rubbers will provide all the speed you need.  The slower blade will give you the control you also need to keep your strokes consistent.

but a defensive bat is larger and with the rubber the weight can be to heavy

That is a good point Martinand.  That would be an issue.  I guess I was more talking about the slower blades such as the All Round blades.

I am sorry...but large head does not mean heavier always
My bat has an enlargened head (15mm more on each side) and weighs 60g

DK, they meant assuming you used the same type of rubber as you already use.

Sorry if it seems a bit too late for this but the defensive blade that I have is a Joo Se Hyuk blade. Any opinions?

Joo Sae Hyuk blade is definitely one of the best DEF blades.

I do not have personal experiences with it,but according to forums it is great blade,and the fact that many defenders play with it supports it.

I read that it is rather harder blade suitable for thinner rubbers.
