Please help me identify a Blade for my style šŸ™šŸ»

Hello, would you be so kind to help me?

My style of play is hitting, I'm very bad at topspin, my shots are powerful near the net, and the friction of the hit produces the spin, I think my level is intermediate, my problem is that I don't know which blade is better for a hit style. :

What would be better for my hitting style, a Koto like Viscaria or a Limba like Donic Waldner Ultra Senso Carbon with a sweet spot?

In my opinion, the Koto would be better for my style, however I would like opinions. It should be noted that I currently use the Ultra Senso Carbon with the Bluefire M1 and feel like I need more power, also I have never used a Koto blade.

Thank you!

Seven ply wood blades like a clipper or any clipper clone are good for hitter style. But the sweetest blade for hitting if you don't mind to spend a lot of money is the Darker Speed 90.

Stiga calibra LT used to be the rubber of choice for flat hitters, but it looks like they replaced it with a line called stiga Boost tc.

There is nothing more suitable for that style than a Schlager Carbon and a harder early gen tensor...now that SC is no longer made, maybe Sardius or Primorac Carbon and a sheet of Omega VII pro or similar hard sponges modern esn rubber.

On a contrary note, there is nothing more sneakier than a middle of the road ALL to ALL+ blade and a medium sponged rubber for COUNTER HITTING... such a setup makes it much easier to land those strong counter hits vs strong incoming balls.

Potentially, there could be HUNDREDS of possible combinations of something in this configuration.

After some years of experiments I found the blade for my hitting style: Nittaku Barwell, the all wood version, not the Fleet version. It is discontinued but you can still find it. Choose ST handle, FL handle is too small.
For rubber choose a low throw inverted rubber. Xiom Sigma 2 Euro/Pro seem good. Another option to explore is a fast short pimple like Rakza PO, V>102, Moristoā€¦ still in progress to find the best one for my play.
cheers
