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 NunChaku Blade Review
This would have to be one of the coolest looking and sounding blades on the market!

 

Review by Purger (published with permission)

  • Giant Dragon Blade Nunchaku Off+/5 ply
  • Quality/craftmanship: Blade is made of excellent quality and has a smooth finish.
  • Weigh: around 80/85 grams
  • Head size: 157 mm x 151 mm
  • Thick: 7 mm

Construction: 5 ply blade with center core of some sort Multy Compound System balsa mixed with ayous and outer ply made of fineline I think, or some sort of black coloured plywood.

I tested blade with following rubbers On F/H Tenergy05 / B/H Tenergy 64.

Speed:
I felt like this is more of Off- to botom line of Off blade rather then marked by GD Off+ compared to Acoustic, Xiom Power Carbon and Violin, GD Nunchaku is significently slower, baring in mind I used same rubbers on all 4 blades

Short Game:
Blade is very steady and short game is very good

Service:
Blade is very good for serving short serves as its not bouncy and ball stays bit longer in contact compared to other 3 blades

Slow loop:
Slow loop is easy to initiate and produces lots of spin especially when looping with side spin another thing loops are a lot shorter then with oher blades which was confusing my opponent.

Looping mid distance:
Looping from mid distance from both wings was ok still have decent power and very good spin on the ball

Looping away :
Here I felt lack of power compared with other blades and had to dig up and use more arm power then usual to get decent power loop that would put opponent under pressure.

Blocking:
Blocking was medium fast with excellent control and easy placement.

Counter Loop:
Countering loop close to table of the bounce was great as blade isn't to fast so I had very good control and and counters were mostly strait winners.

Feel :
I felt like it lacks feel compared to other blades but usually I felt same for other balsa blades to. Nunchaku is steady and MCS system did strengthen construction to create more solid feel on hard impact over all blade has medium feel and no vibration at all

Smashing:
With Tenergy 05/64 smashing is pretty easy so had no problem here possible slower then with other
blades but enough to win points and pass opponent

Babe Factor:
Well to me blade looks really cool but you guy's judgeby the pics, LOL

Final conclusion:
For the price this blade is very good value for money and for players that like balsa blades
Blade is for tactical allround offensive game. Very effective with short serve/push and slow loop to
initiate attack and draw opponent in to lift the ball.

Not to good for fast topspin exchange just because lacks bit of power but consistent with great control.
