Reviews of Stiga Celero Wood (8)
5 ply wood. Limba - dark wood? - ayous. No one actually knows what wood is used in the second layer.
The feeling of this balde is crisp, similar to koto.
I's thin flexible blade. Flexible blade need attention when blocking fast topspins. Much easier to counter with short topspin or drive as opposed to just plain block. Due to flexibility, the incoming topspin ball has a tendency to shoot out off this blade high into the ceiling. Blocking medium topspin balls is good enough.
Very good control. You can add to the spin, you can overpower strong shots, you can slow them down. Slow loop, backspin, flick, topspin do anything you want. Flat hitting? I am not sure. You need something stiffer. People buy Acoustic for looping.
Above medium throw angle. Brushing will make a medium high arc and land on the table with nasty kick forward. This is the key element. The stronger you loop more chances to put ball on the table!!! This blade is made to be hit hard with the force! The harder you hit the more you feel like the center area of Celero blade "bends" and grabs the ball.
Solid OFF- Slower than Korbel, Primorac (5 ply), Ebenholz V. Do not buy Celero less than 87g. 87 - 90g is good. When hitting hard do not flat hit, instead - brush! If you want more speed then adjust your contact point. Basically, for high speed do what physics suggests - do not touching ball next to the handle or close to the center of the blade. Instead, aim for a touch point to be in the top third. Blade will flex and ball will fly fast.
1m - 1.5m away from the table is ideal. 2.5 - 3m is difficult.
Avoid soft rubbers. Other than that blade will probably take the most of rubbers very well. Being flexible will benefit from hard rubbers. Unboosted Chinese - possible but you know, you need to be strong. Boosted Hurricane 3,8,NEO and similar will do. STN - very good. "Lively" linear rubbers work well here.
