Reviews of Nittaku Acoustic (42)
I like the handle on this blade. It's quite small. This is a classic looping blade. I do sometimes feel it's a bit too slow for me, but the control and ability to feel the ball is really good.
I have waited a while to be sure before writing this review as I have tried dozens of blades and the euphoria wears off. But after playing with this blade for several months, I can now say with certainty that I will not change again as it really is the only blade I've owned that allows me not only to do everything, but do it to the best of my ability, with a maximum amount of spin, control and good speed. As a two-winged controlled attacker, this is the ultimate blade. You can load loops with huge quantities of spin, push long and short with lots of spin, smash hard and accurately when the opportunity arises, block easily with accuracy, services and receives are the best I've known. Flips are also very safe. Even defending is a piece of cake. In sum, hard to find any weaknesses that don't stem purely from technique problems. The feedback is also unique. This review is based on my current setup: FH Andro Hexer Grip, BH Stiga DNA Pro AM. I tried other rubbers such as G1 on both sides and it didn't work as well for me. You really can't go wrong with this blade if you play close to the table or mid-distance. Can't recommend it enough.
I started table tennis with Butterfly carbon blades such as Viscaria and Timo Boll Spirit which got me up to 1700 USATT with mainly club play and no coaching. I stayed there for about 3 years and decided to switch to Nittaku Acoustic because people said wood blades have great "feel" and carbon blades don't. I never understood what "feel" meant until playing with Nittaku Acoustic, and now that I know, I recommend every developing player to consider starting with a wood blade. The reason why "feel" is so amazing I noticed is with wood blades the blade will literally vibrate differently when you hit the ball correctly, and you will "feel" this sensation in your hand. I'm literally being coached by my blade that's telling me when I am hitting the ball correctly or not and it has helped me improve up to 2000 USATT. Amazing blade and give it 10/10. I could not be happier and glad my table tennis equipment search is finally over.
The only blade that feels an extension of my arm. Perfect balance of speed and feeling that can be tweaked by rubber combinations. The small handle was not an issue with the flared handle but I had to add grip sleeves to beef up the straight handle.
Top ten in the world in sales, and that is not strange
