(eg: i dont have clear idea of soft or hard rubber. and blade, internet so many types of blades and different segment of piles). kindly suggest me what type of blade and rubber should i buy. my budget is medium.

      Any of these blades will be fine - Stiga OC, Yasaka Sweden Classic, Butterfly Primorac, Butterfly Korbel.

      Put on Donic Baracuda on both sides and your topspin will be insanely hard for your opponent.

      Stiga Azalea Offensive, Xiom Offensive S with Vega Intro or Calibra Spin at 2.0mm each. Joola Viva with Joola Energy rubbers at 2.0mm also works.

      Get Korbel blade.
      Rakza 7 on both sides, or Gewo EL Pro 45 or 43, can't remember the number, probably not EL Pro 48, even though its a great rubber, but probably too fast.

      I'd say hold on buying more expensive rubbers if that's your first custom racket and you don't know what you like/what suits you. Let's say buy Yasaka Sweden Classic or Stiga Allround +Palio AK 47 yellow for your FH (medium hardness rubber) blue for BH (soft sponge) and that would cost you around 30 usd for blade and 24 usd for 2 sheets and it's around 55 usd or so. And that's super super cheap. 50 usd is a normal price for one sheet of high end rubber..
