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


Different blade sizes for table tennis rackets from small to extra-large defensive blade head

Blade size S

high speed

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.

saves weight

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

High speed

A blade in size M ist about 5% slower than in size S

well-balanced

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

CONFIGURE YOUR OWN 

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

medium speed

Exactly tailored to the needs of defensive players

top-heavy

Makes playing rotation-rich balls very easy

large Sweetspot

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 156mm wide and 162mm long
