Light weight attacking blade with so much control.....more control than my clipper. Fall in love at first stroke...LOL
I have used Korbel Sk7 with soft rubber (2010 to 2015), then Stiga Allround Evolution with hard rubber DHS H3 Neo (2015 to 2019), and now I decided to take the big leap towards a faster paddle (although with control) like the Stiga Infinity (83gr), adding hybrid rubbers ( tibhar hybrid k1 in FH and Yinhe Big Dipper in BH): the result is EXCELLENT. Final weight 186gr. All the balls fall on the table in any rally, easily, my serves are as effective as always, with a lot of effect, the blocks are phenomenal, the short thrust game is almost as good as with the previous setup (thanks to tacky rubbers too), and I have improved in quality of my tops, especially at medium and long distance from the table. I was amazed at how simple it is to defend smashes from afar: I just have to touch the ball so that It travels directly to the table, this gives me a lot of range to improve my technique, and more versatility and security in my game. I can hit tremendously strong flush balls near the table and they will enter like a missile, or improve my BH flick to take the initiative. I am very happy with this equipment, it is not expensive and its quality is enormous.
some said it lacks power...others said it is powerful enough. So I tried my friend's Stiga Infinity and see who is right. Verdict: Yes, it DOES lack power from 1metre away the table. This is a pretty slow blade too. the only good thing I like about it is the CONTROL...which is the trade off you get at the expense of power and speed.
My Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive is a lot better and cheaper too!
People saying this blade lacks control are either beginners or hate Stiga.... This blade has a wonderful touch and for an all wood blade a lot of speech.... Problem might be the rather flat ball curve and the durability of the blade. Because of the extra heated inner wood layer it breaks rather easy. Still a super blade... especially when looking at the price
Good blade but could not find 2 of the same , the blade has occasional variations and its noticeable, I had one with hard feel and one with much softer feel both from same supplier original from Sweden. And I used same rubbers.
This is the one of the best balanced blades I ever played with. Topspin, chops, flicks, blocks, shots whatever is easy. In fact that I prefer hard sponge rubbers the biggest con is short to short. If you don't play active enough the ball will go into the net. But there is training for that.
Plies: 5 (Wood)
- 2 * Limba 0.3mm
- 2 * Spruce 0.8mm
- Ayous 3.7mm
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.
