Butterfly Table Tennis Question and Answer

Question:

Good day,

I a beginner to low intermediate player looking for a suggestion of a blade and rubber for my game. I’d rather play a defensive / control game to set up points. Pushes at the table to chopping away from the table to set up points to smash/drive when available. What would be a good recommendation of blade and rubber for this, keeping in mind that backspin / defence / control are the primary concerns.

Thanks.

Your Ask the Experts question was answered by Jon Ebuen. He is the head coach at the New York Table Tennis Academy in New York, NY. Coach Ebuen’s response is as follows:

Hi John,
 
First of all, thank you for considering Butterfly as your equipment of choice.  My suggestion for you is:
 
Blade – Hadraw Shield 
 
This would complement your style because of the defensive and control of the blade.  While the rubber will give you balance in attack whenever you need to generate speed and spin.  
 
Hope this helps and good luck with your game.
