I finally made a choice since I was getting stressed out.

I went with a defensive blade, since the only way to do quick blocks against topspin/smashes with OX short pips is most likely this way; I'll be needing tons of control and braking to block close to the table without it floating off, and although I would like to try this with the fastest blade possible and see how that goes, I really don't have the patience, stress-tolerance, or money to do so.

So hopefully a defensive blade was the correct choice.



You don't feel this is a bit of a contradiction, do you? Defensive blade as the only way to make fast blocks? control and breaking for quick blocks? The style you describe sounds a lot more like a close to the table LP blocker, yet you insist that it is fast blocks you want to make?

You have been given heaps of good advices here but decided to go against them all, so don't blame us if it turns out that you didn't get what you were after. If it actually turns out this was what you wanted, then you failed miserably to describe your style.


Hi Speedplay, I am guessing that the usage of 'quick' might be in terms of ball timing (off-the-bounce) with respect to his description, but let's wait for his statement (a new blade! :D)

Yes, and I appreciate all that wonderful advice, speedplay, but doing quick blocks with sponge and OX short pips is entirely different, and doing a quick block close to the table with a faster paddle will result in the ball floating off the table before it has the chance to drop, not sending it back at them like a rocket as would be the case with sponge, since the paddle could then grab the ball and send it back at them with topspin as well as cause the ball to drop instead of the opposite, which I will be dealing with.

In my test with the Galaxy J-1 and Uranus OX, the only way to perform quick blocks against a high level of topspin without sending it off the table was to back up from the table a couple feet, and in my test with the Tibhar Smash and Magic Pips, the problem lessened a little bit, but I still had to back up in order for it to be effective. Closing the racket angle had no affect whatsoever, since topspin wasn't what caused the ball to arc over the net onto the other side. So the only option to at least allow me to block an incoming ball at the table is to use a slow paddle, so obviously the return will be entirely different, i.e. - extreme underspin instead of topspin, but it allows me to use the same block mechanics for the time being, probably with strategic ball placement in places they won't want since the ball won't be arcing violently back at them. Does that make sense?

I went with the Tibhar CO-S-3, and I'll NEVER order a chinese scooter again, even if it's free!

My guess, he wants to do drop blocks, not punch blocks. Dropping back to block will give to many "gifts" to your opponent. :)
