Hi,
I am looking for a C-pen blade which is very good for looping. What are your recommendations ?
Currently I have the following C-pens : Violin, Roots 5, Roots 9, Virtuoso, Taksim and Amultart.

And NONE of those are good for looping? :lol: Maybe go for what Xu Xin uses, perhaps? It's a Stiga somethingoranother.. probably has ebony or some other hardwood on the face.

Violin ..... pure-wood blade ?
Taksim, Amultart ..... composite blades ?

Surely the Violin would make a better "loop" blade than the arylate composites ?

Also personally as a beginner,

I find that soft inner-core + hard top-plies makes more loop-drive and smash possible.

While hard/medium inner-core + soft top-plies makes All-Round game possible.



More flex or springy a blade will make it easier to loop but not drive or smash as effectively.

Does anything I said make sense ? Correct me please :-D

I am sure there is always something better out there but the Violin loops like a dream.

Thank you all for your comments, so I would choose Violin, meaning that I do not have to buy a new blade :)

Surely you've tried it already? :lol: (That sure is one expensive blade..)

Yes, but I never did looping before, now I want to start learning :)

In general,
Root 5
Violin
Virtuoso

Probably better starting point than the other three.

Going haywire :D
I do not have a good faith, so I go from one blade to another. I tried Virtuoso with F2, Borko with Mark VAD, Roots 5 with F2 and Rapscallion with
Rakza 7 soft. I think Raqpscallion is too stiff.
I think I am starting to get some feel on it, my trainer said that my stroke is getting better, but the spin is still far from good. I used to hit hard, so I find it rather difficult to brush the ball :@ .

You might try looping with slower stroke speed, and longer arm movement and aim to land the ball only half-way down the table?

I found learning FH looping, needed lots more controlled strokes with very compact placement.
"Play inside the box" is a typical requirement during practice ( rectangle size of A4 sheet ).

Also I found that if I don't worry too much about how high the ball rises and as long as it comes down half-table, I can start putting a lot more spin on the ball with a faster vertical stroke while still landing the ball in the box.

Now to generate speed I close the bat angle and play the same stroke diagonally with explosive results :rofl: :lol: And yes the ball lands , and on the white lines, and goes phwooom :-D
