    New Setup

    Hi guys, I've recently just bought the viscaria with Tenergy 05 on the Forehand and Tenergy 80 on the Backhand both 1.9 mm. I'm finding viscaria too fast for me I don't get as much spin or dwell time as I do with an all wood blade. I like the look of the Andro Simon Gauzy SL off blade with maybe the Rasanter R53 Rubbers or Yasaka Razka 7, or maybe stiga genesis ii s as I think tenergy would be too fast for my liking.
    My style: I'm a very similar player to Simon Gauzy like to use heavy topspin, chop blocks and sidespin and I like to use heavy topspin with a lot of dwell time on my 3rd ball then attack on 5th ball.
    And I'm not sure if I should go up to 2.0 mm or more to get more dwell time and spin
    Should I get the Simon Gauzy blade or is there any other better setups for me or I could stick with a butterfly wood blade but I'm not sure or go to Stiga and get a Carbonado 45
    Thanks

    Brs has a good point!!!

    R53 is fast and not as forgiving to stroke errors, if you don’t like T05 on the Viscaria, then it’s likely to be similar for R53.
    Never tried a Carbonado 45 (C45) but maybe that will be quicker than the Korbel, possibly similar to VIscaria for speed or a tad quicker, similar stiffness between Viscaria and C45.

    If the blade shape and size of the Korbel and Viscaria are similar, you could try putting the T05 onto the Korbel and seeing how that plays.

    Can you explain what you mean when you say you have not seen "any stroke errors on it till now"?

    I think you might be talking about changing the blade listed on your profile. If that is the case, if you click on your user name at the top right hand corner of the page and go down to "general settings", and then in general settings, click on "edit profile", there you should be able to change the blade and rubbers you have listed.
