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 Super Balsa II Blade Review
Comments 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.

Blades come shrink-wrapped, and it looks like the blade face is sealed.

The blade feels fat but also feels light! The handle does not look fancy, but feels quite comfortable  and thick too, probably due to the thickness of the overall blade.

As can be seen from the picture on the right, this blade has a huge inner balsa layer. This results is very fast speed and soft feel, similar to blades like the Cool and TSP 8.5.

This blade should suit a very aggressive close-in attacker for generating great speed on hitting/counter-hitting.

They tend to work very well with a thin (<2mm) soft Tensor style rubber for great hitting potential but also good feel. They also work well for aggressive pimple play, which a thin sponge preferable to make it easier to hit.

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