    "chinese philosophy for equipment" blades: flexibility, stiffness, etc

    So pingsunday made the "Chinese philosophy for table tennis equipment" article, and in it he writes that a blade should be "flexible", soft and have good feeling.
    As I use a 5 ply hinoki outer blade(hinotec off), I'd like to know if the lack of vibrations and different feeling of the blade would affect my beginner-intermediate skill/technique progression.
    Furthermore, I'd like to hear you guys' thoughts on what makes a blade that suits the chinese game play style, I've heard some chinese players stick with stiga 5 plies because they have the feeling, and also recommendations on blades that suit said philosophy.

    Take “pingsunday” with a grain of salt…
    The important thing is that your combo in the beginning is not too fast and not to spin sensitive that’s all.
    The rest is up to personal preference that a beginner has not developed yet.

    That philosophy is a bit dated now. It was for the 38 mm and 40 mm era.
    These days most beginners and intermediate players start with something like the Clipper or similar 7 ply all wood.

    The Sanwei Fextra is a good example of a clipper that plays well and doesn't break the bank.
