Hi, i've been playing for a year with a premade padlle by yasaka (world tour) and now i've decide to upgrade my Hardware (Also the coach thinks it's time to upgrade).

This is my shopping cart at the moment:
FH: Palio AK-47 blue (2.2mm, 38-40°)
BH: Palio CJ8000 Biotech (1.8mm, 36-38°)
Blade: Yinhe 896, Yinhe W-6, KTL instinct

This build is 35€ ~. (In the Gym EVERYONE uses a 100€ set: Butterfly Primorac + Sriver EL/FX. I don't want to pay this because i'm still a reserve)

I'm an All+ player who like to topspin/smash, i use my BH to block and push (still have to learn backhand topspin).
I've still not figured out which is the best Blade that suits me, any suggest is accepted.

The rubber is fine but I would suggest a Sanwei M8 blade. Less than USD 9 including shipping

I've tried all three of the blades you mentioned, didn't really like any. The Instinct felt clunky, the 896 vibrated a lot, the W6 was a tad too slow and heavy for my liking.

I'd advise against the 896 and Instinct too.

Why can't you simply ask your coach? Anonymous strangers on the internet forum who never saw you play don't necessarily have lots of wisdom to share...

You may wish to consider this classic on offer at TT11 (at the moment but not for very long more)

Agree with pgpg - best to ask your coach. Good luck!

Blade: Donic Appelgren AllplayV1
FH: Donic Baracuda
BH: Xiom Vega Europe DF
You've been playing a year, all those blades will be fine. The main thing is not get something too fast. If looking at Chinese, the Sanwei M8 is worth a go. If prepared to pay a bit more, any Euro All / All + would be fine. Donic Allplays, Yasaka Sweden's, Stiga Classics, Xiom Andro Joola Allrounds. Don't over think it.

The Palio cj8000 is a pretty safe rubber, you could go 2.0mm.

Really like my Xiom. That Allplay on special on tt11 is definitely extremely good value for money.

Is the C-3 the one with the cork in the middle? My opinion - way TOO heavy (for me). And the first time I removed a rubber a little tiny piece of the top ply came loose near the edge (yes, I'd sealed it). I tried this blade back when I was starting to play again, maybe I should give it another shot.
