    Hard + Soft Combination?

    Is it better to have a hard blade and then add softer rubbers to it, have a soft blade and then add hard rubbers to it, or it doesn't even make a difference? Name some good rubber + blade combinations.

    btw:

    I generally am a two-wing looper. I like to use a style close to the chinese-style loop (arm is around 135 degrees). I play close to the table mostly.

    Yeah, me too. Medium soft blade/hard rubber or hard blade/medium soft rubber. I find the ball tend to pop up during short games if I use hard/hard combo.
    To improve, we must enjoy the game and above all have fun

    Based on my experience:
    - Tibhar Phantom X (Ultra stiff n hard) with Tibhar Nianmor (Hard) = Uncontrollable Nightmare
    - Tibhar Phantom X with Tibhar Genius Optimum Sound (Softee) = Nice
    - LKT Instinct+ (Medium feel) with Tibhar Volcano (Medium feel) = Joyous control for allrounders
    - Donic Defplay Senso (Soft feel) with H3NEO (Medium-hard feel) = Very nice control with massive spin and schnapps o' amazing loops

    It works different for everyone tho, but I hardly find anyone who is playing comfortably with hard hard or soft soft.

    It all depends on what your personal preferences are. For those that like to smash they will prefer harder blades with medium to harder rubbers. For those that enjoy and all around game they'll go for softer blades with soft to medium rubbers. And for those who enjoy an offensive loop game it'll be any combination that provides your personal preferences. It's really just about learning to feel the ball with the equipment you get and then adjusting as necessary.

    As for 135 degrees if you are snapping your arm into a 90 more often that's still the more modern Euro Style. Chinese style typically will be about 150 - 180 degrees in arm length. Stefan Feth a German player that moved to the U.S. recommends a 135 degree arm for his Butterfly videos. He was trained in Germany and was very talented there, but moved to the U.S. and is now our National Olympic Coach I believe.

    Donic Appelgren Allplay Senso V1 + STIGA Calibra LT rubber is good.

    Also Andro Temper Tech blade with Tenergy series is nice
    Don't hesitate. If you want to reach your goal, just go for it!
