    Posted: 06/15/2024 at 3:42pm
Dear All

Currently I am using the Xiom Extreme S blade with G1 on forehand and C1 backhand rubber, after some time of use it feels like the speed and spin of the ball is very low (very slow). I have plans to replace my blade from allwood to composite carbon blade, from the following list which one best for intermediate player for budget under 50$ : 
1. Palio energy 05 
2. Palio energy 06 
3. Sanwei C&C
4. Sanwei Pingpangstar 
5. Yinhe Y13 
From the following list which one is the best for intermediate level players with very good speed, feeling and spin for fast attacking spin players

Thanks and Regards
Ray

Add Donic Persson Power Play to your short list... around $25 USD after your 30% discount.

Blade suitable for every level.

Perhaps you just need some new sheets of rubber? Rubbers lose both spin and speed over time. You might be surprised how much spinner and faster a new sheet feels.

I would consider Xiom Extreme S with Fastarc rubbers to be quite fast already for an intermediate player. Fast blade generally have less control and spin, so you might need to compromise a little to decide what's most important to you.

Regarding the rubber that I am currently using, it is still in quite good condition. the reason I want to look for a new blade is because I want to upgrade from an allwood blade to a composite carbon blade to increase ball speed, considering that currently many athletes use blades with composite carbon to increase speed and accuracy.

Did you try bouncier rubbers like Rasanter R42 in 2.0 on the fh? the spin is less than G1 but it's more lively and still pinny enough for an intermediate player. I am asking because your blade is a do-it-all very good one so changing it is maybe too hasty.

The other reason I am asking is that us intermediate players think the best is max sponge under a spinny topsheet but really the fun factor is there with a lively not too thick bouncier rubber on a 7-ply standard blade.

Good luck with your search.

haggisv is right Extreme S is already very bouncy. All you need is to change your rubbers.

Halo Mas Ray,
Salam dari Jakarta.
Sanwei C&C is good, I've tried.
It's limba outer & soft, but stiff though, also easy to generate spin.

And you can consider :
1. Friendship/729 Blue Arylate Carbon
2. Yinhe V14 Pro
3. XVT Black Knight 7
4. Donic Wosik Senso Carbon




Best regards,

~DENDZ~
