      It would be nice if you could say stuff like:
      - What is you level of playing / how long have you been playing;
      - What blade and rubbers do you use today;
      - Where can you buy from;

      OR

      You could just buy a Korbel at pretty much any level and be happy for the rest of your life (:

      Well I live India. I used a xiom racket (Xiom MUV prospin) at first. then our coach was changed and he got me a new rubber for the forehand side. It was a GKI Chelonz Hybridz. For my BH I still have that old rubber that came with the racket. If you want to ask any more Questions you are free to do so. please recommend a carbon blade.
      my playing style is attacking and I have been playing for a year now

      I'm pretty sure you shouldn't jump from a premade to a carbon blade, unless your coach told you to do so, and in this case, he should be the one to recommend you the blade.

      Anyways, in you place, If I had to change something, I would actually change the rubbers and keep the blade.

      But let's wait for the actual grown-ups to help you with that.

      Keep the Xiom MUV blade and buy better rubbers only, like Xiom Vega Pro, Elite, or even Intro.
      Later on you may change the blade depending on your development.
      Your budget is too short to change the Xiom MUV with better blade + rubbers.

      Limba-limba-limba ayous.

      I had the blade before anyone had it in most part of the world 2 to 3 yrs ago and introduced it to a few forums and distributors. I think it is thebest 7 ply allwood blade in the market that is also cheap.

      I will give yogi_bear right. Fextra 7 is a fantastic wood.
      I have mine for about 1/2 year now, and im pleased about it.
      Its fantastic with offensive rubber on fh and pips on bh for my play

      DHS PG5 or PG5X is may be good in this price range. or step up a little bit your budget to DHS FANG BO ALC or Xiom FEEL AX.
      I think it good to go.

      Another vote for PG series from DHS. They are cheap at around 30$.
      If you're playing for only a year you should probably stick to all wood blades.
      Some say PG2 is a clone of Hurricane King.

      Just get yourself new rubbers, as someone said. Since you've been playing with your current bat for some time, you should be quite used to it.

      I'd try a 729 Focus Snipe rubber on your backand if I were you. Your premade bat is a pretty good one, but Snipe should be a slight step up. However, if you want something better and still affordable, I'd go for 729 Presto Spin, 42 degree sponge, as it is really good and costs just around $20.
      Keep your FH rubber, as it's your coach's choice for you.

      I know that, I mean, I was asking about sensation, softness, stiffness, flexibility, dwell, linearity, weight, measures. Thanks in advance.

      Yeah, the inbuilt search function is bad, I use google filtering by TTD results only:
