Hello Claus

What blade are you using? I have found Keiler to be very blade sensitive.

The problem with Keiler like many SP or MP with fast blades is that it can be difficult to play passive e.g chops, flicks or short pushes against slow low spin balls.

Hello ChasFox,

currently I play Arbalest Thor 6.0 (was Galaxy/Yinhe Speer). Its Balsa/Carbo and all+/off-.
I will test TSP Reflex Award off.
How do you solve this problem?

Greetings Claus

it really depends on how bouncy the blade is at slow to medium speeds rather than off, off- etc. rating.

You may well find the TSP actually gives more control than the Thor with Keiler due to not having balsa and being more linear.

As regards sponge thickness 1.2mm on a fast blade will definitely give you less ability to hit top spin as it will bottom out on the wood quicker and will have a much harder feel unless the blade has soft outer plies or you are used to playing OX. I can use 1.2mm as I use slow blades with a bit of flex and dwell.

Hello ChasFox,

thank you very much for your advice.
Hm, hard outer pliers give more disrupting effect, I think. So thats a difficult question what is more important for my game.
I will go for testing the TSP Wood after our league games have ended, wich is tommrow.

Greetings Claus
