Hello. I played tt competitively for 3 years, ages 11-14. I am 24 now, and am getting back into the game. When I left, I was 1500 USATT, and though I haven't played "for real," in a while, I have played a little here and there (game room pong, etc.).

I intend on playing a close/mid table Chinese attacking style attacking game. I have been watching youtube clips on Chinese footwork, and I'm really excited. Have found a lot of flaws in my game, and feel I will soon exceed my former level. I also intend on using a more Chinese style forehand, with less "chicken winging" and more body torque/arm extension.

Anyway, I have bought some new equipment.

FH Rubber:

DHS Hurricane 2, H3 neo provincial

BH rubber:

Palio CJ8000 Biotech 36-38°, Friendship/729 Focus 3 Snipe, CTT National Pogo LP (to play around)


Galaxy N-9, Stiga Allround Wood NCT


The stuff is in the mail, should be getting it pretty soon. I initially ordered 1 paddle, the stiga blade+H3N+Palio. Later, when I saw such a cheap Off+ blade, I decided to buy another racquet. The 2nd bh rubber actually seems better than the palio, so that's good. It seems that the best combo should be

729 snipe
Stiga Allround

But that would leave the H2 to go with the off+ blade, which might not be a good idea? It's my backup racquet though, so I shouldn't sacrifice the primary one to help the backup..

Any input/advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

another cheap offencive/all blade you could get is galaxy W-6( comparable to yasaka extra)

how does w-6 compare with stiga allround nct? which would do better with pips?

dont realy know. i havent played with the nct version of allround ive played with a tube version.

if tis anythign liek the Tube all then.. W6 is definitely faster. more flexy i guess... didnt play much witth he W6 as it was for someone else. only dried it very quickly
