I still haven't found my "own" racket. I like very powerful off+ blades. And I like the rubber dhs hurricane3 (2.2 mm) very much. For example, I had Stiga CC7 off+ blade and there was hurricane rubber with max thickness on the blade. I liked it very much. Because with it could do very powerful forehand loops and very spinny pushes and good blocks. It was not easy to ruturn them. Even some top players in our club struggled against me. But it was very heavy. I couldn't do backhand topspins, couldn't do wrist movements especially topspins over the table and i couldn't react some fast balls.
Now I am playing with a light racket. My backhand topspins became better, but other strokes became worse. My opponents can return my forehand loops, blocks and pushes easily.
What do you suggest?
I think some compromise is what is required. The rubber you are using is natural heavy so if you can find a very light blade that might help. You could try a Balsa blade.
Other readers may have some good suggestions for you as well.
