      Sounds good. Isn't there a non signature blade equivalent? (Like Hurricane Long 2 -> PG7)
      The HH II isn't a cheap blade.
      I'm his clubmate, not his father....

      maybe for christmas though...

      Yeah PG7 is actually one of the most popular among the PG series. It's supposed to play similarly to HH2. I have never tried.

      For the price and numerous reviews I am sure it's a good blade.

      Passionate about TT

      Cheaper Yinhe blades or 729 blades are a good option as well. If his fingers are getting callused it will be good for new CPHplayer

      So i owned a penhold PG7 once. it's a pretty good blade. Really affordable.

      I prefer my Stinga Clipper but that's a little stiff probably for him.

      I'll tell you this. I'm eyeing these sexy new Gambler Fire Dragon penhold blades.

      https://www.zeropong.com/products_new

      They have carbon in them and are clearly trying to emulate some of Butterfly's popular ZLC blades.. They even say so in the description. But i'd go for either of their two thinner 5.8 I think thickness blades for looping. They have a thicker blade 6.something I think (kinda like my clipper) for more drive, power play.

      But to your original post. Yes penhold wings that don't have the sanded wings are the worse. Sand those babies down. I use a dimmel. The end result should look like a completely beveled rounded corner on both sides top & bottom.

      Another tip. I would do this if i was starting form scratch but alast I've been playing this way too long. Teach him to use the RPB 95% of the time. Sure in the cross over point or sometimes with sidespin chop-blocks a la Ma lin the TPB is better but other than that? RPB.

      I have tried & tried to use the RPB more but instinctively on blocks i just use TPB.

      Good luck.

      I'm a lefty also who plays penhold. Have him watch the He Zhi Wen setup type of point with the side spinning pendulum serve breaking wide far off the table. If he can block the opponent's loop down the line, point is over 75% of the time. A good setup to emulate. He doesn't have to play short pips like He Zhi Wen to do this. Can be done with inverted all the same.

      Thanks a lot. Good one. I didn't think of He Zhi Wen.

      You guys are probably right though The HH 2 is probably also good idea.
      A 7ply made be a little stiff for a beginner who is developing.
      Maybe i should be looking for a 5ply.

      I love to watch He Zhi Wen when he does this!

      I am a righty, and similar concept - i serve a rocket serve to partner's BH, and punch it down the line.
      Waldner on Ma Lin: "...Ma Lin’s serve was not especially good at first. He used a stabbing serve with the only variations being backspin and no spin, that is all."
