I bought this blade after reading many good reviews on Internet. Here is my thoughts about it. PROS(+): this blade looks nice and has comfortable handle. CONS(-): When I tried to play, with Infinity VPS, I was very disappointed by the performance of this blade. There is NO FEELING at all when you play and also the SOUND... It feels like you playing with the log instead of t.t. blade. Seriously, this blade makes some loud and dull sound with lack of feelings.... It was difficult to find right rubber for this blade. Classical Chinese tacky rubbers with hard sponge (<50 degrees) was difficult to use: blade didn't flex enough to produce good kick effect I was hoping for, as a result- less spin on the ball (around -20% decrease). After 2 months of torture, I gave up on Infinity VPS blade and went back to Stiga ALL Round Classic WRB. It is much superior to play with. Better kick effect and tones of spin with moderate speed, whereas VPS is faster and soo many balls ended up beyond the table. CONCLUSION: if you prefer hard and stiff blade with soft sponge rubber -you might like VPS blade. But, if your choice- hard sponge tacky rubber, and you are aiming for MAX SPIN, CONTROL and FEELINGS then look else where. The Stiga ALL Round Classic WRB, Waldner Senso Carbon V1 or Stiga Offensive Classic Carbon can give you better control, better kick effect and much more spin as a result, comparing to Infinity VPS, without compromising feeling during your play.
I hope it helps, PEACE.
Love this blade, FH- andro rasanter v47, BH- andro rasanter r42. For those who want to buy first blade, try this blade first and you will love it.
What a wonderful blade!
Very good feeling and vibration thanx to allwood compostion and vps.
A very good blade for agressive looping with a very good amount of control. Indeed its control due to its speed is unblievable. It is a killer spin-machine with medium to hard rubbers.
Thanks stiga for wonderful material and composition.
Best 5ply blade Ive ever seen.
And its st handle is very suitable and thick enaugh for a good greep.
This blade has long trajectory like a lot of good Stiga blades. It is noticeably harder and stiffer than Stiga Intensity. Looping and blocking are both good. I have trouble controlling my shots sometimes with hard rubbers. I think switching to softer rubbers will solve this problem. Even though this is a pure wood 5-ply blade, its speed and stability are similar to a carbon blade. This is definitely not a blade for beginners. You will need to improve your stroke speed and accuracy to fully enjoy this blade. Once you master it, you can produce incedibly fast and spinny topspin shots. For the quality, this blade is not expansive either. Its definitely worth having. UPDATE: After spending several months practicing with this blade, I now fully appreciates its fine qualities. With DHS Skyline 3 on FH and Xiom Vega Pro on BH, this blade has great touch on short game and powerful topspin on loops. My set up is slightly head-heavy, but overall light weight, around 182g. With Skyline 3 on FH, this blade has incredible feelings. I can clearly feel each shot on the blade. When you put power into your shots, the blade produces lovely sounds.
this is a nice 5 ply blade good for blocking and smashing has a light feel and has a strong feel too , can be used even by beginners but if the timing is used at the right time during top spin and smashes this blade is way to fast it depends how much energy one gives out during hitting the ball, close play and mid to far it is really offensive the handle is very nice, but if timing is not used at the right time the ball runs out or to the net. the blade is nice the disadvantage of this blade is its slightly small than my fang bo carbon , the face of the blade had to be 2mm a bit wider and it had to have a good finish,it has to be sealed and sold , the ball is very fast when it comes to an attacking game I am using the Dhs Hurricane 8 on FH & Tibhar Aurus on Bh I like this setup overall a good blade
Very stiff and very fast, although it is quite light. Mine is 77 g. with ST. You must get used to its speed after moving from Off- / All+ blade. Good block, good shot. After the first training the overall impression is very good.
I put aside my, 3 times more expensive, Timo Boll Spirit for this blade. I cannot imagine myself going back to carbon blades. The carbon layers of the Timo Boll Spirit kill the feeling of the ball, taking away one of the senses needed to play table tennis. Infinity is an aggressive all-wood blade with amazing feedback with some, but not annoying, vibration. It is only a bit flexible which helps generate spin and a nice kick effect. It is very light so I chose hard, heavy rubbers (Hurricane 3 Neo FH and Yinhe Mercury II BH). This combination is a bit slow but gives me amazing feel of the ball, unreal control and enough power to finish the point. Tacky rubbers help me take the initiative as soon as possible with flicks and opening loops. Ball placement, the kick effect, soft touches and the ability to change the pace during a rally frustrate my opponents. Tacky rubbers and the straight handle make these attacks easier. It produces awful vibration and sound when you miss hit or hit flat. The range of the blade is from close to the net to far away from the table. I do not understand why people say it is slow. The flexibility creates a small catapult effect when playing far from the table. I havent experienced any built quality issues yet but the wood is soft and gets damaged when you accidentally hit the table. If you want to improve your technique combine it with hard rubbers. Players with bad technique will initially find it hard to play with a combination like that but advanced players will be impressed by its precision and versatility. Flat hitters and unfit players should go for tensor rubbers. Control is high so it works amazingly well even with fast rubbers like Tenergies. I would avoid soft rubbers.
I have the penhold version, its a bit heavy and thicker... apart from that is a very good blade, fast with a lot of control. the feeling is very nice, i dont feel any vibrations, overall a great blade. Must buy if you wanna take your game to another level. Used by Fan Z.D.
Very good blade especially for who plays close to table , incredible amount of control and dwell time.
Just be sure that , you should seal this blade. Do not use it without of sealing . At the end i highly recommend it to starters . up to intermediate level players. Pro's who whould like to feel the ball and play close to table.
My wood weighs 94 grams over 87 that says stiga, very large variation if you are going to buy it you must weigh it before, I think that stiga minimizes the speed of your woods, I can not believe that stiga OC is classified in latest catalogs like all +, stiga Infinity is probably off +, I feel faster than yasaka overdrive off +, however it is the best woods, buy it you will not regret it.It is very good, medium-fast with good control, medium weight, great sweet spot, consistent, pleasant sensations, very pleasant presentation, requires a bit of sanding at the edges, comfortable handle, almost everything is fine in this wood stiga, good price.pieces of wood are raised when the rubbers are removed, some vibrations and push-ups are felt when the ball is struck
Great for spin and control but extreme power and correct technique absolutely required for away-from-the-table play. Players like FZD might be able to play but rumour has it that this is NOT his blade but Viscaria. :P
vibration is enough and good cntrol without loose your energy from ur blade...
Awesome blade and powerfull with set up FH calibra Lt spin BH Tenergy 80, increase speed and spin is easier.. backhand flick very easy cause this blade is light of weight.. great blade i ever used...
Good to have but i find it hard to believe Fan Zhendong use this blade to win world rankings. Sweet spot is good however can feel the shaky vibration.
I played only for 5-7 times,but can feel too much vibrations(horrific).Speed is not fast with my technique.I am sure Fan Zendong can hit fast with anything,but for intermediate player like me.....does not seem to have good speed.I have andro trieber Z as my main blade,which is super fast and amazing control+sound.I will update as I play more.
Now I have played a bit more,I hate this blade even more,its far inferior to Yinhi T11+,which is soooo fast+great control+ideal amount of vibrations.This VPS is awful in control,I cant return any fast loops on the table....I can easily do that with my other blades.but it shines in close to the table attacking game.Maybe I don't have the right rubbers on ,I use BH baracuda(donic),FH blufire m3(donic).The sound is so bad....like broken wood.I bought from paddle palace,its not their fault.The blade is over hyped.
UPDATE=I have been playing a lot with good player at my club,I have gotten a lot better at looping,attacks,technique.So I now love this blade.Beautiful blade.I am using it with Black-Aurus(Tibhar)+red Bluefire M3.Looping monster.Loops are swinging and curling and spinning crazily off the table.My fault was I was trying to play away from the table.This is a blade for close to the table....all attack blade.magical control/speed/spin when u use it right.Grip is awesome.Very light setup.
I have 2 blades in Legend. 1st one is 86g, head 155x150cm, well balanced with heavier rubbers, but whole bat is then heavier (181g). I both the 2nd one, which was 80g, 157x152cm (so differences are always) and put there Donic Acuda P2 1.8 on both sides so with heavier rubbers it could be a bit head heavy, but not much. Whole racket is 169g. It is lighter, slower and now I can improve my technique. With good technique you can play shots from close to table, mid distance and also mid to long distance from the table. Overall it is very good blade, sealing recommended, sanding edges, too. Legend handle satisfied my big hands and long fingers. For comparison with TSPW, TSPW does have smooth finish on handle, but it could feel like you can through the racket during shots. Stiga's rough handle finish is therefore better for me. I did not try many blades, but now I know, this is what I was looking for. I hope it will last long time even with rubbers changing and won't splinter.
