    You aren't entirely wrong, but let's look at T05 vs Dignics 09C

    I find Dignics 09C to be significantly less sensitive to incoming spin, and much better for serve return than T05.

    I also find it...

    Sorry, I did know that but force of habit in referring to "Euro" rubbers as "ESN".

    No, I find T05 or 05FX to be very poor at serve receive unless you are confident in your strokes.

    Likewise, the answer to your original question is highly dependant on you.

    I prefer 05, my...

    It’s really hard to offer advice without seeing any video.

    You described yourself as a beginner, and taking money out of the question, no one would recommend a Viscaria as a beginner blade.

    I appreciate this is not an “overnight” change, but I hold the bat much lower down on the handle.

    I find it gives me more options down the line, and helps the transition to backhand.

    There has been many comments on this already (I’ve already made a few myself).

    “Better” is subjective in this context, but I personally believe D09c is better than T05 for a number of reasons.

    Simple answer - No.

    More complex answer.....

    If you *can* see it, I'd imagine the standard of play is not particularly high, and the level of spin is very low.

    But even the dead shots at a...

    Hey Enzo,

    With the blade change suggestions, if I'm completely honest, they are all very very similar - If you want to decrease the speed, I would look for something slower.

    I'll be honest, this is a bit of an odd thread now, and I'm not really sure if you want advice/help or not?

    I’m not sure that line of thinking helps your case with “breaking in”, because my definition of “breaking in” a shoe, is certainly not applicable to a new table tennis shoe being too grippy.
