Chinese penholder for offensive players who are looking for a blade with high basic speed, but which nevertheless has a soft and easily controllable ball stroke. The Basalt fibres ensure high speed. At the same time they keep the table tennis blade elastic – so a Basalt penholder is much less stiff than other blades with synthetic fibre and is easier to control. All in all, the perfect combination of speed and feel.
Like all our penholder blades, it has a slightly egg-shaped blade in the typical penholder shape.
Basalt fiber compared to Carbon
In contrast to Carbon fibres, Basalt fibres keep the table tennis blade elastic. It does not become stiff, but has a very soft and controlled ball impact.
The fibre ensures that considerably less vibration passes into the hand. This results in a very clear and direct feedback. The sweet spot is enlarged by the Basalt fibre. This allows the blade to be controlled very well and the balls to be placed safely.
