Roots 6 Basalt – Elastic offensive blade
The ROOTS 6 BASALT is a blade for offensive players who are looking for a table tennis blade with high basic speed, but which still has a soft and easily controllable ball impact. The Basalt fibres ensure high speed. At the same time, they keep the table tennis blade elastic. That’s why Basalt blades are much less stiff than other blades with synthetic fabrics and are easier to control. All in all, the perfect combination of speed and feel.
Basalt fibre compared to Carbon
In contrast to Carbon fibres, Basalt blades remain soft and elastic. It does not become stiff, but has an elastic and controlled ball impact.
The fibre ensures that considerably less vibration passes into the hand. This gives you a very clear and direct feedback. The sweet spot is enlarged by the Basalt fibre. So the blade can be controlled very well and the balls can be placed safely.
The special handle design
The combination of handle shapes of different thicknesses provides the optimum feeling. The handle lies firmly in the hand and does not slip away. The combination of G3 and G4 results in a wonderfully rounded handle, which makes it easy to turn from forehand to backhand. There are no annoying edges to disturb fast turning.
