Reviews of Stiga Carbonado 290 (7)
am now using the 290 used XVT zlc koto before with ..diff faster rubbers like the R47 .. now with a soft very spinny slower rubber donic Barracuda the 290 is my best choice . Barracuda has v high throw and the 290 seems low throw and stiff... play close to the table love the b-hand flick with this setup
I switch from DHS301 (Cpen). FH Xiom Vega X, BH Xiom Omega 7
After 2 weeks of playing, i slowly understand the blade. Is very fast and able to produce sharp hit. Near to mid table is very great. You need a good agility body to pair with the blade.
I would say this blade suitable with hard sponge rubber in order to produce better stroke. the harder you hit the higher quality it is.
9.2/10 for OFF style. FH/BH: Donic Bluefire JP 02, 2mm, 46g (0.23g/cm^2), 45 degrees (ESN), 36 degrees (Shore A). Blade: Stiga Carbonado 245 / 290, 93g, 156mm x 150mm x 6.1mm (Width x Height x Thickness). Plies: 7 (5 Wood + 2 Composite): Limba - Textreme - Ayous - Ayous - Ayous - Textreme - Limba.
Simply the best blade I have used. As with most things, it's different strokes for different folks but as far as, feel, flexibility (number of gears), spin and control are concerned the Carbonado 290 ticks every box and then some. When it arrived in the mail, I was expecting a heavy racquet (the rubbers I ordered were medium/heavy) but it was not heavy in the hand. It is a solid feeling blade, beautifully balanced and gives confidence in your shots and gameplay. Excellent for loops, topspin and short game, amazing for blocking, pushing and chops. Rated as OFF+, the 290 is certainly that but is a terrific all-round and defensive weapon as well. I have used many bats over the years - mostly Butterfly, but also a Stiga Clipper and a Darker Speed 90 - all of which have been good in their own ways the Darker is a different creature altogether, almost alive, great to play with yet hard to win matches. The Stiga Carbonado 290 is as close to a perfect table tennis bat I have experienced. I wish I had bought it a couple of years ago. But je ne regrette rien, I am now at one with the Carbonado - with black Rasanter R47 2mm on forehand, and red Xiom Omega VII Asia 2mm on backhand.
This is my new setup after a 2.5 year break from table tennis, and this review highlights the changes I've noticed from my previous setup. My old racket consisted of the Primorac EX with Hurricane 8 Mid on forehand and Tenergy 80 on backhand. This blade has Hurricane 8 Mid on the forehand and Stiga Mantra M on the backhand. The most obvious difference was how direct and linear the ball would come off the racket. Topspin to topspin rallies were very close to the net and looping backspin required a more vertical stroke, especially on the forehand side. Since I am still out of practice, I needed to make more adjustments in my strokes to get the ball consistently on the table. The shots that did make it were very spinny and fast, thanks to the carbon. Service was easy, and the blade performed well in the short game. Blocks were also returned with a lot of speed but requires a lot of feeling, which I thought the blade provided, to get the ball over the net. Compared to the Primorac EX, forehand was definitely a lot faster and spinnier, even though my technique is not as polished. The Primorac EX does offer more feeling and control, though, having a softer outer layer and I vary the ball placement better. Backhand, the Carbonado 290 is faster and has a stronger punch, even though I did not use Tenergy 80 again. I am quite pleased with this new setup and will use it for the foreseeable future. Likasumbooty so fas, so stronk, I duh totally recommend.
