hello table tennis daily community,
this is my first post here
I am an intermediate player training 6 hours a week , I am an offensive player on fh and allround tend to block on bh you can say attack on fh and defend on bh (my bh need to improve much more my fh and I want to be more aggressive on both sides)
my racket is a blade taken from a paddle and put two razer rubbers
what is the best blade for me ( my budget is 50 – 70$) that can improve me from intermediate to pro and last too long with just changing rubbers (i dont wanna be an international player just local)
I heard about stiga clipper cr wrb , stiga infinity vps v , dhs hurricane301 , yasaka ma lin soft(or extra offensive) carbon and donic waldner senso carbon
What is the best of these blades? If there are any other blades please suggest to me
And if you could mention the suitable cheap rubbers ( budget for 2 is 50$)
You can say my total budget is 100-120$
I really need you help and appreciate your co operation
thank you

For the budget you are listing you are probably better off getting less expensive stuff from China.

DHS PG7 which is sort of like a Clipper but less expensive. Or if you wanted to spend even less money Yinhe Galaxy 896 blade is quite good and very inexpensive.

And Chinese rubbers. There are so many that might be good for you. Off the top of my head I am thinking:

Yinhe Big Dipper 38 Degrees on FH and
Dawei Inspirit Quatro or Air Illumina Delta on BH

The blade and rubbers will cost much less than what you would get if you wanted to get European or Japanese equipment. And it will still be excellent quality.

However, without seeing you play, I cannot tell what would really be best for you.

I think you could buy an old blade. For example, i have just bought a xiom vega euro blade with only 50$, cond about 90%. Really good for me. With china blade, i think the durability and feeling is not good as expensive blades from good brand such as: butterfly, victas, xiom.... before i bought alot of china blade. Haha
 
Fextra is the best budget blade if you are looking for speed and control. At 35usd each you can even add more budget to your rubbers. You can even buy 2 tibhar mxps at 40 usd each in some places.

I agree with yogi_bear, Sanwei Fextra is a very nice blade, you can get it new for around 20 bucks. But if you want to spend more, Stiga Infinity is also nice (I still have mine). Check also out other classic like Butterfly Petr Korbel.
But well, it's not a matter of which is the best blade, it's more if it fits the way you play.

As for blades, all blades mentioned will do just fine — some more suited than others to a particular play style, maybe, but what I get from OP's description is a mix of styles, with distinctive FH/BH difference.

Maybe my $.02 would be to choose for strength. A BH blocker with a powerful FH loop as his main weapon would probably best focus on supporting that FH loop.

I like the Xiom Offensive S suggestion, given this train of thought. But any of the blades mentioned will do, and acting in defiance of Ba'al's rule 20 it will help to settle on one and just put in the hours.

As far as rubbers go, well, we enter the realm of level-relative and personal preference even deeper there. Within budget, DHS Hurricane Neo 3 will fit, but then again, Xiom's Vega line is also within sight and offers outstanding value for money among the EU/JP type rubber families.

Xiom Vega Euro is discontinued on TT11. Do you know what they replaced it with? I have people who ask which blade they should upgrade to after the cheap pre-made ones. I usually say yasaka extra or mark v. The Vega Europe looks like a decent blade.
Sorry, i bought it from a japan seller after had read yogi review about this blade, and agree with yogi after play this blade. :) you can read again in Reviews on this forum. But the new 100% vega euro is not cheap, about 140$, so we should buy the 2nd from EJ. Haha

and thank you very much for your helping

thank very much for your helping

You could make 4 each Der_Echte Specials for your 120 usd budget.

The D.E. Special is a new896 blade, new xp2008 rubber, and recycle a fh rubber you have.

You could also get an Allround Evolution or similar class wood blade for under 50 usd and BEAST MOD it, and add new Vega Pro or similar 35 usd rubber and you are IN.

I made couple mistakes buying Chinese made cheap blades recommended by someone here. Avoid them! Quality is not consistent, even with expensive blades from DHS.

If you want them cheap you can buy "used" from good sellers from Japan on Ebay. I bought a genuine Butterfly ALC blade for ~$120 and am very happy with it.

so you mean the difference of price between blades i mentioned and xiom offensive s doesnt worth?
thank you for help
