The Blade sizes
WHAT EFFECTS DO THE DIFFERENT BLADE SIZES HAVE ON THE PLAYING CHARACTERISTICS OF A TABLE TENNIS BLADE?
So that you can adapt the playing characteristics of your blade even more precisely to your playing style and preferences, you will find each blade in 4 different blade sizes in our configurator. From the small and light table tennis blade in size S to the extra large defensive form DEF.
THIS IS HOW THE BLADE SIZES AFFECT THE PLAYING BEHAVIOUR OF A TABLE TENNIS blade:
THE VIBRATION BEHAVIOUR IS ESSENTIAL
High-frequency vibrating blades accelerate the ball better than low-frequency vibrating blades
THE BLADE SIZE INFLUENCES THE OSCILLATION FREQUENCY
SIMPLIFIED ONE CAN SAY: THE SMALLER THE BLADE, THE HIGHER THE VIBRATION FREQUENCY, THE FASTER IS THE BLADE
Influences the balance
Control the balance of your racket – large blades shift the focus to top-heaviness, rackets with a small blade size tend to grip-heaviness
Conclusion: Rackets with a small blade size are faster than bats with a larger blade size
Use the blade size to control speed and balance of your table tennis blade
Blade size S
A small blade size makes your racket faster
tends to grip-heaviness
Due to the small blade size, most rackets can tend to grip-heaviness. This makes the already very light blade appear even lighter than it actually is Tip: You can counteract this by choosing a lightweight handle material.
enlarged sweet spot
There are no disturbing vibrations, which makes the ball stroke very sensitive.
Useful for players who want to relieve their wrist. Keep in mind the speed an balance factors above.
Blades in size S are 150mm wide and 153mm long
Blade size M
A blade in size M ist about 5% slower than in size S
The slightly enlarged blade size shifts the centre of gravity a little more towards the centre of the blade. Control the balance additionally by choosing the right handle shape and material.
slightly enlarged Sweetspot
The sweet spot is also slightly enlarged at this blade size, which requires a good ball hitting point. Vibrations are dampened well here as well.
suitable for offensive players
Good combination of high speed and low weight
Blades in size M are 151mm wide and 156mm long
Blade size L
a little slower but easier to control
The speed decreases slightly with increasing blade size, but the blade is much easier to control
tends to be top-heavy
A blade with a large blade size is usually a little top-heavy, but this can be compensated very well with the appropriate handles.
slightly reduced sweet spot
Depending on the blade and the vibration behaviour, the vibrations increase slightly, which reduces the sweet spot a little bit.
very suitable for all-round and defensive players
Easy to control at moderate speed
Blades in size L are 152mm wide and 159mm long
Blade size DEF
Exactly tailored to the needs of defensive players
Makes playing rotation-rich balls very easy
In the defensive game, the large hitting zone forgives many mistakes
Ideal for Defensive players
Classic defensive blade slightly egg-shaped that brings a lot of control into your game
Blades in size DEF are 156 mm wide and 162 mm long
