You could consider Tibhar and Andro too. They have good ones.

First off. Welcome to the forum. You'll find your answers here I'm sure. It's a great community and you're bound to love it here.

Now off to some questions to better suit your request.

What rubbers are you using. And what is your style? Or do you just want something faster than your Primorac? Do you like to play close to the table or further away? What level do you play at in Greece. I understand that you're at a very good level, but I don't know what level that is in comparison to other Greek leagues. Are you as good as Kalinikos Kreanga or are you a good amateur? Just some questions that we'll need to know to better help you make your choice.

Welcome and ttyl.

Hi Ionas...welcome to the forum:)
Your game is quite similar to mine, mid table. I've been using stiga equipment for a very long time, and I have to say they're top notch. I have an Ebenholz VII, though I don't use it often, it's really good offensive blade. I think you need it to get the most out of your Rakza. very good for mid distance and far from the table attack. Clipper WRB is good too, but you may need extra power or a faster rubber (Calibra or Boosts) to make it perform at a higher level. Rosewood is quit similar to Ebenholz, just a little slower.

You should bring your old Primorac to the store with no rubbers. Bounce the ball on your blade and compare the bounce and vibration feeling with the Stiga blades. Just pick the one you like the most. I think modern 5 ply will be faster than your old Primorac.

i think that i need something a bit faster.
i cant do that because my old primorac is dead.( i gave it to my son and broken it):confused:

I'm using Donic Waldner ultra carbon senso & it's really nice, fast but good control. They also do a Waldner carbon senso which isn't quite as fast.
I also play a mid table aggressive game.

I would suggest the rosewood v. It's 5 ply just like yr primorac but has a stiffer top
ply. Should be faster than yr old blade though

I would suggest rosewood v, vii is too heavy and stiff since you have played with primorac off- for some time. They are quite similar but rosewood v is more solid and should be more powerful. Some of the top women players (Guo Yue, Feng Tian Wei) use these blade. Get your friend to give you more discount or maybe at cost? It's worth a try.

Rosewood or maplewood 5 will do...

with all the siga blades that ive used, cllipper wood is the best for me, but ofcourse its very subjective because its my personal preference but for me it has both good control and power, but on the otherhand its also very heavy, mine is around 96 grms, good thing i like heavy set ups

For the price the Clipper is the best. There is no doubt. It is less than half the price of the others and just as good.

My Clipper is 89 grams. I had them weigh them to find one that was a weight I wanted.

But the other blades are great blades. It is hard to go wrong.

Ebenholz V is the fastest. I like it a lot. It feels very good.

Rosewood V is slightly slower than the Ebenholz but gets more spin. I like this one a tiny bit better than the Ebenholz V. But I would use either of them.

So, for the price I like the Clipper the best, if money was no object, I would consider a Rosewood but I might still end up getting a Clipper for myself. :)

nice clipper weight, i have 2 clippers, 1 is the old flared cilpper i had it back in 1991 and it weighs 95 grams and 1 is recently purchased, straight handle weighing 96 grams, i had them weigh all their clippers but havent found 1 lower than 96 grams, i think anything heavier is too much for me, i had a mazunov which weights a whooping 105 grams and i found it.. alas.. too heavy for my liking
