Reviews of Stiga Allround Classic WRB (16)
Firstly, I am using this stiga allround classic WRB with Palio the way 40+for Forehand rubber and Friendship/729 729-08 as backhand rubber. I am a beginner. Before using this blade, I used yinhe n9s and n11s blade. In term of speed n9s>n11s>Stiga alc wrb. In term of stiffness Stiga alc>n11s>n9s. I feel this is perfect blade if you are a beginner and would develop technique.
Ratings for 63g. I have four Stiga Allround Classic WRB blades. The hollow handle makes them lighter than non-WRB version. The weights are 75g, 68g, 66g and 63g. I switched to this blade because it's light and I use very heavy Hurricane Pro 3 turbo rubbers. I use the lightest one now and the total weight is around 180g so my wrist doesn't get as tired and I can react quicker. Balance is not an issue. The blade is on the slow end so loops are landing more often when I go for it. Feedback is very high so I can feel if I am hitting the ball correctly. It's very easy to produce massive spin using hard tacky rubber on this blade. Construction is Limba outer, Ayous 2nd and Ayous core. Blade is flexible and thin 5mm. Head size is 158x151 so slightly bigger than typical butterfly blades, but not like some defensive blades. I use Legend handle, which is the wide version. It's comfortable. Manufacturing quality is good, but you should seal the blade to prevent splintering. Price is good too. The only downside is the lack of fancy marketing. Enjoy TT!
Plies: 5 (Wood)
- 2 * Limba 0.5mm
- 2 * Ayous 0.6mm
- Ayous 2.9mm
Blade broke in half in less than 1 month. The head fell off the handle during play. There are reports of quality control issues with Stiga blades, I've ready of this happening to blades from more than one of their lines. Stiga did not stand behind the product. For the 1 month that I was able to use it, it was a light blade with medium vibrations, medium control, and medium speed. Doesn't really matter once it's broken in half.
Can be as light as 70g, and does everything you need.
Not too fast for me, and quite flexible. Perfect for learning strokes,
going well with all the rubbers I tried so far (light, medium-soft tensors,
and classical rubbers). Made in Sweden.
New to agree with CHOP review. Feel lack of speed if of course paired with too slow rubber but with a dynamic tenergy 05fx on FH and rasanter R37 on BH, feel I can just play without always trying to limit the energy I bring to top spin. You can easily change from passiv to high tempo and engagement on the ball. You really feel what you do. Don't understand why everyone wants carbon and ultra fast blade.
It's fitting all beginners up to confirmed players as well. Really recommended.
This is a very good ALL blade with high control. WRB is all you need to become a very confident player. It's a spin generating machine, if paired with medium, medium-hard rubber(brand and price doesn't matter much). You will understand why by the end of this review.
Many OFF blades are too fast to hit the ball constantly under control with max power using your legs and entire body. Thus many players mentally afraid to hit powerful. the ball will fly off the table. By using FAST BLADE players put themselves under unnecessary mental pressure. They're not able to stay relax and calm during the game. To put it simple: too fast blade= less control=more mental discomfort=more tense muscles=more mistakes. On the other hand WRB Classic has a wonderful feel, flex and it is in the middle on the speed scale. You won't believe how many problems in table tennis can be eliminated by slower blade like STIGA WRB Classic. So, you can play CONFIDENTLY without fear of making mistakes, very powerful, with full arm swing, using your legs, and body muscles, and not be afraid that the ball will go off the table. I found that I was able to generate MUCH MORE spin and power with WRB Classic than with OFF carbon or composite blades using the same rubbers. I know, many players approaching the problem from another side by thinking: SPEED comes from the blade & SPIN comes from the rubber... Such approach often implement the loss of CONTROL and slowing down player's progress significantly. Learn tho use ALL blade and use your entire body with MAX speed and power instead. Do not forget about physical conditioning and endurance you need to have to play effectively with this blade. Conclusion: SPIN comes from the flexible blade with good feeling+ hard or mideum-hard rubber. And the SPEED comes from your legs and entire body. STIGA WRB Classic is a perfect blade to implement this vision. I'm going to stay with this wonderful blade for a long time now.
Simply the best. Paired it with Rasant Grip on fh 1.7 and RP Sponge 1.9 on bh. Control above imagination and enough speed to finish the point for an enthusiastic amateur player like me but it can be surely true for more skilled ones as well.
Update: Conic handle is fabulous. More pace and rotation for your wrist movements than ever so you can generate wicked spin especially during serves!
This blade is a real winner from Stiga. Light blade suitable for classic rubbers and tensors alike. Great ball feel upon ball impact. Pair it with tacky Chinese rubbers to produce good speed and massive spin. Pair it with Juic 999 turbo or Hurricane 3 Neo and you have created a spin monster with very good speed. Some very light sanding need for the handle to smooth out the feel. Seal this blade when new to prevent splintering with rubber changes. Suitable for all levels except advanced power looping away from table. All grips are ok but could be just a tic larger.
As a beginner, I was very nearly persuaded to get a faster, more expensive blade, as I thought 'faster' = better. I'm very pleased that several experienced players suggest I get a good ALL Round blade with good all round rubber as my first, as this would help me to learn good technique for every stroke, before deciding which style of play was right for me.
To begin with, I found it difficult to get the ball on the table as I was hitting too hard - already I was glad to be using a 'slower' blade and I've since learned to control my shots a lot better.
Second, I found the paddle rewarded my efforts with a great deal of spin in serves and my top spins and side spins are equally accented.
The hollow handle is something to get used to at first as it makes the blade quite top-heavy. I'm told this creates a bit more feeling, feedback and power. Though I haven't got the regular ALL classic to compare with.
All in all, this blade does what it says on the box and I'm incredibly happy with it for a first blade.
Using Mark V on both sides.
* suitable for begginers, and intermediate level players. Just keep on changing the rubber as you improve.
* superb control
* love the extra vibration that WRB gives.
* a great chopping blade too! considering the fact that you use the right rubber also.
* Has a heavier head. More likely that ball trajectory/ throw angle will be lower.
* not suitable with hard & tacky rubber. Tried putting DHS Hurricane 3 on it. it just did not feel right. I also tried putting DHS Hurriance 2 neo, also did not feel right. Maybe i did not glue it correctly, i dont know.
* A VERY slow blade. So make sure u pair it up with a fast rubber.
Great blade if you know the right rubber to use!
Xiom Omega IV Pro - Max thickness - on my FH
Yasaka Mark V - max thickness - on my BH
Works superb for me!
A very good blade not only for beginners, but also for intermediates!
Just be careful not to pair this blade up with a wrong type for rubber like DHS hurricane 3, it works horrible!
Currently using Xiom Vega Pro on my FH & Yasaka Mark V on my BH and it is fabulous! I mainly bought this blade, cause I love the vibration this blade gives.
Some may feel it is a VERY light blade. And, yes i have to agree about this, to a certain extent. But you can fix that by using just one heavy rubber either on ur BH or FH.
Giving this blade an 8/10 cause it is a great blade, ONLY if you find the right combination of rubbers to go with it.
I am a top club grade player, aggressive power looper, both wings. My previous blade was sending the ball too long when looping (not enough 'drop') so I decided to test some new blades and thought I would start with something slow with good feel and work my way up to what would suit me. I chose the Allround Classic WRB as my 'slow' starting blade and after about 7 other blades came back to it. I found it light, fast and having amazing feel and control. I play with a Tenergy 05 on my forehand and Omega IV Euro on my backhand and the combination of this 'slower' (not) blade and faster rubbers is awesome. I've been asked by a number of other top grade players whether I'm using booster :-), which I'm not, because of the speed and drop I am generating from this combination. This blade is fantastic and works surprisingly well with quick rubbers. It is also feels really light, being superbly balanced handle to blade.
I have both the Off and All version, and the difference is not much. I played 2 months with this blade, and i have mixed feelings, I hoped that it would compensate the lack of control of the Off version, but it was slightly noticable. The speed was far to slow for my game.
The weight is excellent.
