Dear TT players,

For an Intermediate TT player looking to Advance,
15+ years of amateur hobby TT experience,

For Christmas presents for myself, subject to a total budget < £350 for 2 bats, am thinking of these selections, would you have an expert opinion?
(Having seen the revspin user reviews)

1. Yasaka GOIABAO 5 FL handle + RAKZA 9 2mm + RAKZA Z 2.3mm


2. VICTAS Wood Koki Niwa Straight + Victas 15 Limber 2.3mm + Donic Bluestorm Z1 Turbo 2.3mm

Q3 > Would a Victor Fishbone Grip extreme grip tape help performance?
Q4 > Is JOOLA Table Tennis Rubber X-Glue good for DIY work to paste the above rubbers to the blade
