Table Tennis Tips

A real low and short no-spin serve can give you some easy points in matches, as they are difficult to flip hard, and they require good timing to push hard. Mix it up with a heavy backspin in the same spot. Remember to get it short, the ball should bounce short on your side close to the net...

 Giant Dragon Kris Blade Review
Review by haggisv

Giant Dragon has definitely turned a new leaf with this new range of blade. These blade are of high quality and have a very nice finish. The thick and soft inner balsa layer looks and feels the same as found in much higher priced balsa blades, and the different speeds on either side of the blade make it quite unique and excellent value.

Graphics on the blade face looks very cool!

As can be seen from the picture in right, the blade has a thick and soft inner balsa layer, with different outer layers on either side. One side has high catapult making it suitable for offensive play, the other low catapult making it suitable for taking the pace off the ball or for added control.

Although the weight of this blade was specified in their catalogue as 82g, the first batch averaged around 100g, which some people might like, but many won't.

For future batches we insisted on weights no more than 95g which they did meet although it took them longer... it seem all about sourcing the right kind of wood... If the weight is an issue for you, ask the retailer before you buy!

This blade makes an excellent combination blade, with a fast and spinny rubber on one side, and a much slower (and possible pimple or antispin) rubber on the other side. Style best suited would be an offensive close-to-the-table hitter/counter-hitter/blocker style game.

The blade reminded me of the Dr Neubauer Firewall+. It is similarly oversized but does feel a little faster, and of course it has the 2 different sides. The difference in speed is not so obvious until you start blocking passively with the slower side... the lack of rebound in the slow side becomes more obvious....

Considering the price of these blades and the high quality, you're unlikely to be disappointed...
