I think these guys miss the point. To me it's not about weight/wind resistance, it's more about weight and the size of the sweet spot. Bigger blade, bigger sweet spot, less mishits...and with OX long pips on one side weight is much less of an issue. :lol:

Hm....I read it, and personally, I don't think wind resistance changes that much with different head sizes. You might be more prone to hit the table with a larger head. I definitely agree on weight being definitely affected significantly by the head size not only because of the blade itself being larger, but there being more rubber on it. And yeah, MNNB, I think sweet spot size is more important than head size, but that they are correlated. BUT different blades of the same size might have different sweet spots, so.....

What the guy at the bottom said about small blades being bad at looping underspin....hm, not sure if I agree there....

From Paddle Palace:
Quote:
Another factor to consider is the amount of rubber that it takes to cover the racket. Smaller head blades will be lighter because they require less rubber to cover the surface. Large head blade will be much heavier and become slightly top heavy with the added weight near the end of the racket.

From personal experience it's the effect of head size on rubber weight that makes the difference. Apart from one premade bat, all of my blades are oversize. One is a very respectable 87gm, but once loaded with rubber it's much heavier than the average bat.

I agree with mnnb about the size of the sweet spot, but suspect that blade composition may be a more significant factor. For example, composite blades have large sweet spots relative to their size.

Lots of foolishness written about blades, this blog article would seem to qualify.

What a goose :P anyone might read that and think small headed blades are good when there's nothing further from the truth, better to get the biggest head you can before the disadvantage of weight starts to overcome the better power and consistently of a large head

I think blade size depends where you want to be. How much vibration you want ect.

The bigger blade adds vibration but that's also wood dependent and the makeup of the blade. Bigger blades do have bigger sweetspot but if you are a close to the table player who loops and hits and blocks a little a compact head isn't too bad. In fact it should theoretically add a little speed and power... science science science blah blah blah...

Bigger blades are great for choppers because not only do you get the gigantic sweet spot, but you have more room for error because you are so far from the table that an extra 3 cm on your blade all the way around makes a gigantic difference...

I would say 150mm width x 157 height is about average/medium.
