Is the carbon fiber racket (Donic Shildkrot Carbotec) approved with ITTF or not?

Hi Saad,

Blades don't need to be approved by the ITTF, just rubbers.  However they do need to fit this regulation:

  1. 2.4.2  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. 

I am not sure whether this fits regarding the percentage of wood.  Others may be able to help out here.
