It’s great that you want to improve your techniques, which reflects your seriousness in table tennis. In order for you to achieve the level you are aiming, choosing a blade and rubbers that fit your personal playing style is very essential.
If you are interested in switching blades, I would like to recommend Timo Boll ALC that offers excellent power, speed and spin. Because Timo Boll ALC is constructed with carbon layers, it features a great feel for the ball, giving vibration when the ball hits the paddle, ultimately providing a player with more control. You probably know that every blade comes with different weight. From the blade you are currently using, an inference can be drawn that you prefer a lighter blade. May I suggest you ask for a blade that weighs 87g or 88g when you place an order with Butterfly?
My recommendation for the rubbers is Tenergy 05 Hard 2.1 for the forehand and Tenergy 05 FX 2.1 for the backhand. The Tenergy series is excellent for players who look for rubbers that provide better control and power.
Please note that the thickness of the sponge I recommend is 2.1 as opposed to your current rubber of 1.9. The higher number yields more power.
