So I want to build my own racket. I'm planning on putting Rakza 7 on both sides but don't know about the price of the blade. I want to keep it in a budget for it not being expensive. I was thinking of a 40€ blades for exaple: Donic Persson Carbotec or Donic Burn but I was wondering if I could get away with it being cheaper. Both of the blades in offensive variant .I already have a friend with this type of setup and I really like It. Or maybe you can reffer me to a better type of blade.
If you have tried your friend's setup and really like it - buy that. You are unlikely to get something you like better from untried Internet advice.
You don't really need any more information than what Brs has given you. The rest of the thread would actually be redundant if you had simply taken his advice. It is excellent advice.
But, I may as well give a little more. If the blade you tried was the Donic Burn Off or the Donic Burn Off- those are great blades with really nice feeling. Go for it. If it was not one of those but when you used it you like it, still, what Brs said is really the only information you actually need.
Yeah but does the blade matter that much? If it's cheap or really expensive?
A lot of the time, in Table Tennis, the blades that are more expensive are more expensive because of things like fancy materials like carbon or carbon weaved with arylate and any number of other things like that. Nobody on this forum actually needs a blade that is more expensive than the Donic Burn Off. Many people on this forum are using blades much more expensive than that. But almost everyone on this forum would be fine with a run of the mill, 5 or 7 ply, all wood, simple blade which could cost anywhere from $14.00 to $150.00.
While it is true that some of the blades that are higher priced are better crafted. But, NOT ALWAYS. And if my friend is using a blade that is really nice and cost $150.00 and I am using a blade that costs $40.00, then I could by 3 for less than the price of that $150.00 blade. And the blade won't really make me play any differently.
I have a decently nice, all wood, 5 ply blade. I like it. I use it. It cost about $100.00. It was hand made to my specifications. I got exactly what I wanted. But, I can think of any number of blades that are similar enough and cost between $20-$40 that, are, in the most important ways, just as good as mine and me using them would not change my playing level AT ALL.
Get what you tried from your friend. Save yourself some money. Don't be fooled by the table tennis companies marketing hype. Carbon, or ALC, or ZLF or ZLC or SALC or SZLC or any number of other things you see as composite plies are really not needed. There are pros who still use all wood blades. But, when you are at a decently high level, maybe you will want something fancy with one of those acronyms added after the name of the blade. For now, simple and not too expensive is almost definitely better for your development. Often carbon and other composites make the blade a little too fast for a player who wants to develop and improve.
