Hey guys, I'm ready to upgrade my paddle! I've been playing for about a year with the paddle under my user, unranked, and I'm a Modern Defender who plays mid to long-distance defense with close-mid distance offense. I'm looking for something that'll let me be defensive when I get pushed back, but very fast and top-spin heavy when I'm pressing the table.

The current things I'm looking at:

Donic Defplay Senso
Feint Long III
Donic Acuda S1 Turbo

Does this seem like a good setup or should I be looking at other rubbers/blades?

Gunna be a long learning curve for the LPs, not to say you cant use them. Why not try a really thin sponged inverted rubber for bh defense and see how it goes?

www.colestt.com (http://www.colestt.com) will ship you inexpensive stuff in USA. If you want new gear, go for something with some flex adn enough kick. A W-6 all wood blade with Inspirit Quattro Ultra light in your favored hardness and a thin sponge of inspirit (say 1.3-1.5) for starters can work out fine. You can prolly get that as a combo shipped with a case for near $50-$60 USD

It seems to me you want everything here.
Either you want a slow setup to defend, or you want a fast setup to attack... It seems hard to combine the two...

That'd be nice! But let me be a little more specific... I have the LPs for defending and chopping and I want a faster FH rubber so I can loop and attack (as well as balance the slowish blade). Similar to Joo Se Hyuk's style, but I like Euro/Japanese style spin way more than Chinese. The LP paddle I played with uses these LPs and Tenergy. Kinda want a setup like that, but not quite as fast.

I was gonna do that, but I've already upgraded my FH to the Hurricane III's and I played with LPs for a little while and I did really well with it (I chop with my Focus III as it is, so I just had to adjust a bit). Thanks for the idea though :)
