I’m looking to upgrade my bat. I’m currtly using a unknown blade with back hand butterfly sriver a and forehand yasaka mark v. for spin. Could you please recommend me in the right direction.
This Ask the Experts question was answered by Coach Nan Li. She is one of the coaches at the World Champions Table Tennis Academy in Santa Clara, CA. Coach Li’s response is as follows:
Thanks for your question and interest in Butterfly equipment.
I recommend for you to change to the Petr Korbel blade, which would be helpful in generating spin as it would provide you with more control. I would also recommend playing this blade with Rozena rubbers on both sides. This combination is well balanced for your offensive and defensive game.
Hope you find this helpful and enjoy your new equipment.
