Exist stiff all-round blade? I love Stiga Classic All-Round so I'm looking for the same speed with a little less flex & more stiff.

I'm push-blocker BH LP OX & FH inverted 2.0 Hurricane 3, so don't need blades for soft rubbers.

Tibhar Drinkhall Allround Classic.
This is a blade that has the composition of the other classic Swedish allround blades but is stiffer and has less vibrations. It is a little faster than the Stiga allround, but nothing you can't handle.

The Stratus Powerdefense that has been mentioned is a completely different kind of blade, IMO. It's a hard, low-throw Def blade. But if you're a push-blocker, it might be a good fit anyway.

BH: BTY Challenger Attack 1.5
Maybe too late but I was looking for a similar blade for modern defense and I found exactly that with the Xiom Allround S.
It's stiffer and harder than the Stiga Allround therefore, it works great for flat hitting and with pips (I used SP to chop, block and hit). It has a really clear and solid feedback.
The blade has a low throw so high throw tensors are a better choice.
Also, it has plenty of power (more than any flexible allround blade I tried) to finish points from close and far.
Really a great blade overall.

Maybe one of those five ply blades with a hardwood top ply (like the Ebenholz V or Chinese clone thereof)? These are essentially "allround classics" with a harder top ply. I'm thinking this stiff/non-stiff thing might have more to do with surface ply hardness than actual physical stiffness - it's a feel rather than actual flex.

What about the Stiga Nostalgic Allround .. ? With a Wenge top-ply, it's supposed to be a stiffer, and faster version of the Allround Classic...

I haven't played with it .. has anyone else ?
