Reviews of Stiga Intensity NCT (10)
Super for looping. The ball is loaded with spin. Long dwell time (can carry the ball). But not the best blade for blocking and smashing
I consider Intensity NCT the best blade out of everything I own. I have Stiga Infinity, Donic Ovtcharov True Carbon, Nittaku Violin Carbon, Stiga Carbonado 45, and Stiga Maple Wood V NCT just to name a few.
The speed is Off-, but the control is definitely the best Ive ever felt. Plus it has long trajectory with medium throw angle. There is some flex which makes looping very easy, but there isnt any vibrations when you hit hard. The blade itself is also very light.
The only thing this blade isnt good for is blocking. Blocks are ok, but they are not that threatening unless you have good ball placement. But with its good control, you can easily make up for this shortcoming.
All in all, if you want a light weight looping blade with excellent control, this blade is for you.
You may say this is a replica of Yasaka Extra Offensive (YEO) at least initially specifically designed for Xu Xin to win him back as he switched from Stiga Rosewood V to YEO. Anyway Xu Xin has since played with this blade till now but after WTTC 2017 he has said there is a need to change his blade for more speed as carbon blades taking over...
Avoid playing with this blade if you are an amateur or a medium level player that you still improving your game. I was playing 3 years with this blade and suddenly when I changed to yasaka sweeden extra which is an all+ blade I discovered my mistake. Overall is powerfull, spinny but lacks control and I never liked the sound of this blade.
Stiga does not adv size and weight of their products.
This one has Head sizes: 155 x 150 mm. It is actually smaller and lighter then my Bttfy Liu Shiwen which is 158 x 152 mm. A bit higher arc and nearly the same speed and control but feels more natural in my hands then my Liu Shiwen.
Good control, dwelling time, consistency, sound and feeling in one blade. Absolutely well balanced. After 6 months using I realized this blade has more control after drying out. It was a must to get all from this blade. Performs perfectly from mid distance!
I have straight handle and no problem for serving any of mine.
If you are beginner better to use soft sponge rubbers on it.
If you are experienced you can go for hard rubbers on it.
Middle distance 10/10+
Long distance: 10/10
Fantastic game sensation and enjoyment with my medium - hard sponge rubbers. Thank you Stiga. Well done!
Un lemn foarte bun folosit de Xu Xin numarul 1 mondial si de Zhu Yuling numarul 6 mondial . Acest lemn nu este pentru incepatori.
I used this blade with Genesis S on FH and Calibra LT on BH, during this month. and I feel I don't want no more change my blade after I used Hybrid NCT. so I know why Xu Xin is using this blade. It is very light, I have 79 gr. with both rubbers attached on, not more than 180 gr. It has a good control, more dwell time and nice to be used for topspin and good for mid distance play. And also nice to be used for soft play and control in close to table. and when I used for smash, I feel getting catapult power effect and explode, and sound very nice. I can improve my table tennis play fast, because I get more control and I could feel the sense of hitting the ball on. I suggest everybody to try and use this blade, and you will get more control in your fast play.....
Good blade for topspin close to the table but not the best for blocks or smashes. Not very fast. The blocks are lacking power and are easy to be attacked by the oponent. I turned back to my Viscaria becasue it allows me to play a more variate tennis.
