Hi all,

I know this topic appears quite often and have read a lot of similar threads but would like some reassurance that i am not making a mistake.

I am beginnerish type player that plays with a couple of friends in a club and don't train much. I would say I have the basics down. I prefer a more attacking style on my forehand and a defensive approach on my backhand.

I currently play with a zero pong combo, lkt instinct with a cream fh 2.0 mm, and super fx bh 1.5 mm. I tried a 2.0 mm fx on fh recently and liked it more and I have had my racket for 3 or so years and would like a new one. Probably not needed but I just had my birthday and want to make a present for myself.

I have a budget of $75 pre shipping/tax. I was thinking of Sweden classic/extra/stiga all around. For my fh i was thinking of Chinese rubber, hurricane 3 neo or maybe stay with fx. As for bh I was thinking of maybe trying a euro rubber but I am a bit hesitant of tensor because of speed. Maybe a Musa I or III or even the Vega intro, read it was slower.

Any help or suggestions would be very appreciated.

Thank You

Blade: Donic Appelgren AllplayV1
FH: Regalis Red
BH: Donic Baracuda Big Slam
Any of those combinations would be fine, though the are differences you will adjust quickly and your results likely to be the same. My advice would be go with the combination that you feel will give you the most confidence and be proud of your bat. That could be because you like the handle or maybe have ahead wanted one of the rubbers.

In a nutshell your choices are good, just get the combo that you will be most excited to to use.
