    Really echo this point about paying more attention to shot construction. I had to switch from my faster Stiga Arctic Wood to a Yasaka Sweden Extra and the slower setup there forced me to work on more...

    I actually get this type of question quite a lot and never advise spending more than £50. My go-to build for those transitioning from prebuilt bats tends to be a Yinhe N11 with either Yinhe galaxy...

    I suggest using a non-stick pan cleaning sponge or a very gentle grade sandpaper to rub on the surface of your blade.

    Curious about the thin aspect. I've usually found my cuts to be much more precise with an 18mm blade than with a 9mm one because the latter is more 'wobbly' and it's more difficult for me to do a...

    I use a store-branded snap off 18mm utility knife to cut the rubbers for the setups I sell - I've found it gives a clean cut which looks professional.

    If you just want a little more speed, I suggest only changing to a faster rubber as it's easier and often cheaper than changing to another blade. Xiom Vega Tour is an option. Or switch to a Xiom...
