Customize your table tennis blade
Different shapes for your perfect handle
In order to give every player the opportunity to put together his dream blade with a perfect handle, we have developed a range of handle shapes that can be freely combined with each other.
You can choose between 7 straight and 4 flared designs, each in two different lengths and thicknesses. So you have the possibility to adjust the handle perfectly to your own hand.
Every hand is unique – Why do all handles have the same shape?
Who doesn’t know it – you’ve found the perfect blade, but the handle just doesn’t fit. Too thick, too thin, too short, it just doesn’t fit well in the hand or you don’t have the necessary grip – then you start sanding the handle yourself or optimizing the shape with meters of grip tape, but it’s not really ideal. That’s why we asked ourselves:
WHY DOES EVERYONE ADAPT TO THEIR handle INSTEAD OF ADAPTING THE handle TO THEIR OWN HAND?
Actually quite simple, isn’t it? 😉 So that you can finally adjust your rackets handle individually to your hand, we have thought about the following system.
The handle Length
Each of our handle shapes is available in two different lengths – normal 100mm and long 103mm.
It sounds like a little, but these 3mm make a difference especially for players with larger hands.
The long handles are suitable for people with large or wide hands, while normal handle length is good for players with normal sized or narrower hands as well as for women or children.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT FACTOR IS THE THICKNESS OF THE HANDLE. EVERY SHAPE IS AVAILABLE IN THIN AND THICK, WHEREBY THE THICK VARIANT IS ABOUT 2MM THICKER.
Many standard rackets are too loose and unsafe in the hand because the handle is too flat and therefore has no direct contact with the palm of the hand.
To avoid this problem, we recommend combining a flat handle shape on the forehand with a slightly stronger one on the backhand. The stronger handle on the backhand completely fills the palm of the hand and thus provides a firm and secure hold. This is a well proven combination that is suitable for many hand types.
Which handle shape, length and thickness is best for you is in most cases a matter of feeling and depends on many factors and above all on your preferences.
To assist you in choosing the right shape, we have prepared a size chart for you to download. With the help of this printable you can measure your hand and read off the appropriate factors.
The best way to find the right shape for you will be to compare it with your previous blades.
What bothers you? Where does it pinch? Where is the grip missing? Could the handle be a bit longer?
Or you can order one of our test boxes and test out at home which handle combination fits your hand best. (Available within Europe only)
