Hi there coach,
I came to ask if it would be adequate to go switch back to my old blade? One of my mentors said that I can downgrade to my slower blade for some time to serve as a cross training. I am not sure if it would benefit me. I am currently using Xiom Stradivarius with Donic Baracuda on my FH and Donic Acuda on my BH, I am planning to switch back to Stiga tube carbo with the same rubbers, which is obviously a slower and less bouncy blade. Would this improve my strokes once I get back to using xiom stradivarius ,which is a very bouncy blade, after I cross trained with tube carbo? I must admit that my current blade is very hard to control for it is very bouncy, that is why I would like to go back to my old wood, but I am afraid that my game would get worse.
What should I do coach?
I prefer a controlled blade with faster rubbers. Equipment is really a personal choice. From reading your question it sounds like the best option would be to go back to your old blade. I wouldn't do it as cross training though, I would switch and stick with it for at least 6 months. With a slower blade you'll need to make sure your technique is right which is why it is a good move.
Let me know what you decide and how it goes.
