Hello Alois and Jeff,

I have recently been thinking of switching to a fast blade/slow rubber combination as i heard it'd give me the touch shots as well as the power i need for some of the loops i often like to play to finish the point. I am looking in buying flextra 1.7 mm. Would you give me your opinion of the amount of power i would get if it were glues of a OFF all wood blade?

Thank you,


Alois Rosario

Hi Apurva,

I would go the other way and get a slower blade but better quality rubbers.  The rubber is the most important part of the set up.

GO for an allround speed with the blede and a better rubber like Mark V or Yasaka Pryde.
