Hello! I've been planning to start using long pips on my Backhand.

I currently use a Petr Korbel with double inverted.

I intend to use the following rubbers
FH: 999 999T 2.2mm - http://www.tabletennisdb.com/rubber/999-super-999t.html
BH: Galaxy Neptune 0.7mm - http://www.tabletennisdb.com/pips/galaxy-neptune.html

Planned playstyle:

Forehand (~60%): really agressive looping (No chopping)
Backhand (~40%): chopping (with eventual hitting)

I plan to buy one of the three blades in the Topic Title. Here are their reviews and my concerns:

Galaxy W-6: http://www.tabletennisdb.com/blade/galaxy-w-6.html
1) Would my Forehand Loop become too slow from mid distance?
729 V-6: http://www.tabletennisdb.com/blade/729-v-6.html
2) Is this blade too fast for BH chopping?
XVT Two Face: http://mytabletennis.net/forum/forum_po ... ace-review
3) I've heard that XVT blades are quite stiff. Do you think that the blade composition would contribute to that? Wouldn't that be bad for looping and chopping?

P.s.: I actually don't know if I can even chop where I play. The farthest I can get from the table without slamming into the wall is about 1.5-2m. Is that close, mid or long distance?

Thank you very much!

Those are cheap rubbers and a good choice to see if the style you want to play will suit you. Why not choose a cheap allround blade to put the rubbers on, just to see if this new style will suit you. My point is, don't do too much planning for new style that you want to play, especially since you don't know if you CAN or will ENJOY this new style. Once you've tried it with a basic all-round blade, you'll know if you need something faster/stiffer, etc.

Here's a surprisingly good blade - I can successfully chop with it (at least on the forehand) with 2.2mm Chinese inverted:

I can also loop and hit with it. Very nice feel. There is quite a bit of variation in weight, anything from 68g to 80g, since you want to put long pips on it I'd suggest asking for something in the 75-80 gram range.

Considering what it costs - you should buy one anyway. Or two or three.. :lol:

Yes, buying an Allround cheap blade makes a lot more sense. Thanks for the answers!

1) Should I also order Glue Sheets? Or is ordinary glue preferable? Is there an alternative to table tennis dedicated glue?

2) Hmmm... Does the "M8 JUNIOR" mean anything important? It's a standard size blade, isn't it?

1) Use rubber cement. Yeah, it's got VOCs but will your racket ever be tested for VOCs? :lol: In the US, use Elmer's or Best Test (buy at Office Depot or Staples for the Best Test), in Europe, I don't know. The Faber-Castell stuff is too thick. DON'T use anything stronger (I think the UHU in the yellow tube is too strong). Worst comes to worst get some of that water-based stuff, or take Igor's advice and buy some latex body paint.. :lol:

2) The handle is somewhat smaller than, say, the one on my Stiga Allround Classic or my N11. And it's lightweight on purpose. I actually like the size, if it's too small some grip tape (or Elastoplast) will fix that. Makes me wonder if any of the other "Junior" blades sold by other companies are this good. Most companies have at least one.

You might also want to take a look at Yinhe E-3. A soft feeling blade that is easy to loop and chop with. http://www.tabletennisdb.com/blade/yinh ... h-e-3.html

Korbel is better than the three you mentioned.
