    Stiga AC vs Stiga OC for beginners

    Hey guys, I'm new to this forum.

    I'm not so beginner, I used to play SH for 4 years, then switched to PH in the last 2.5 years.

    I played with a Yinhe N8s for 1.5 years (in my PH) then switched to a Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive due to the thickness of N8s killing my wrist.

    However, this Yasaka blade made my strokes weird, and I have been losing too much for the last year, more than with my Yinhe N8s, my consistency with my FH loop has gone down a lot, even with extensive time for training in the pandemic. It is as if I were back to a beginner again.

    I think that's because this Yasaka blade is too fast for me.

    I'd like to relearn all the techniques with a classic Stiga blade.

    Which blade should I get?
    - Stiga Offensive Classic
    - Stiga Allround Classic
    - Stiga Offensive CR
    - Stiga Allround CR

    Any opinions would be appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    If you are a penhold player, and want to slow down a bit, I think Yasaka Sweden Extra is a good option.

    In fact, Ma Lin and Wang Hao used the blade (was named Yasaka Gatien Extra back then) for a few years before switching to another blades.

    Stiga Offensive Classic is too flexible for current 40+ plastic ball. (thickness is only 5.4 - 5.5 mm if I am not mistaken).
    Stiga Allround Classic is too soft / slow for the current 40+ plastic ball. (thickness is around 5.5 - 5.6 mm if I am not mistaken).

    The CR variants only give harder feeling (compared to the original) due to varnished top-ply.

    They are not bad, but I think Yasaka Sweden Extra is more suitable (thickness is 5.9 - 6.0 mm).
