      For an offensive player that loops and counters I'd say a Yasaka Sweden Extra with a few slabs of Vega Pro would be hard to top within that budget; should be about €90.

      If the petr.korbel is still playable why not just change rubbers instead?

      If not, try the new sanwei A9 or Fextra blades and then pair it with xiom vega europe and pro rubbers

      Yeah, Petr Korbel is a great blade. If it is in working order, there is no need to change that. Just get rubbers. If you are at a decent level, you may even think of getting rubbers like Tibhar Evolution MXP. Or Yasaka Rakza 7. Or Xiom Omega V Pro. Or Ransanter. If all you need is rubbers, you have much more available to you since you don't have the cost of the blade.

      And you will be hard pressed to find a setup with a blade as good as the Petr Korbel and 2 decent rubbers for less than $120.00.

      I dont have Peter Korbel anymore , cuz I broke it. And Yasaka is 4-5 years so its slow, thats why I want to change it. And the budget is not more than 150$. Mates I need quick rubbers, something like Morgan Trulls has , but his Carbonaro and Mantra H are very expensive for me

      Ur flag says Ukraine... ought to be plenty of places in Europe to get what you need. Isn't nexy.eu based out there? For 150 USD you should be able to get peter pan blade, Elpis and Karis M Plus for close to that.

      An alternative Stiga Allround Evolution with tibhar mx-p and tibhar genius should get you right around 120 bucks usd...

      Yes, and there are many more suggestions to make. Truth is, there are plenty excellent blades to choose from, even in the lower price range; some were mentioned, more exist. There are a lot of really good rubbers out there, although the choice of really great rubbers with a non-premium price tag is maybe somewhat more limited (hence the Vega suggestions).

      And all these things are different, with different strengths and weaknesses — or they just cater to different tastes. In the end, any of the recommended setups will do just fine. Pick one, stick with it for a while to adapt to it and you'll do fine. All good, no worries.

      Some companies make almost that number of blades and rubbers in that price ran ge, so there are hundreds of possible bats one could have.

      Have fun deciding, but I wouldn't agonize over it.

      That's always the case
      Read some reviews, check which ones of these are the easiest to get and maybe are on sale and remember that 90% of the result depends on your skill, 10% on equipment

      I remember that from the time I had one match with a girl who is a pro and plays in Bundesliga. She was after a big trauma, didn't play for some half a year, didn't have her racket, so took some pre-made "sh**" from somewhere and beat me

      Chinese made blades nowadays have very good quality. You should try sanwei a9 for a 5 ply blade. It is slightly faster than the korbel and a tad harder.

      After reading all the comments, I would suggest getting a new blade
      Peter Korbel + you can select fast rubbers from below
      - Evolution MXP
      - Omega V Pro
      - Rasant Grip
      - Rasanter R or V 47
      - Tibhar Aurus Prime
      - Tibhar Genius

      Based on experience never advisable to change rubbers and blade at the same time.
