I had this blade ten years ago after a Sardius and Korbel and really liked it. Much more control than Sardius with enough power and better looping. Same control as Korbel but more power in attacks. Perfect for blocking. This was all with old rubbers before the tensors arrive. I used seriver G2 and Bryce and was happy.
I tried it again now at its 40th anniversary and can say its still a great blade. ALC blades are now taking over in looping and far from table attacks without losing control in blocking.
So, if youre playing serious competitions go for ALC but if still not competent in basic techniques, use Cliper till youre enough confident. Its very easy to change to ALC after that.
Im going to try SP rubber on it for FH now as this the famous combination of Liu Giuliang.

I learn my basic using Stiga Clipper and the side spins were awesome. I have own Andro Timber 7 Off/S and others like Avalox P 900.

I still love the Stiga the Legend (FL)handle is really nice. I tried with a hard FH rubber on Clipper Wood for 4 hours . I love it the Loops are faster and more linear and faster.

90g. Soft feeling. If u feel pg7 is to hard then try this. Better for control. Price still on the middle side, not cheap. For built quality, stratus power wood is better,cheaper, and more wood feel. Overall it still a good blade that u should give a try to learn something.

Immensely popular and classic among attackers back in the days of small ball and speed glue but lost steam in bigger ball and water-based glue. Many now prefer carbon blade, until Hirano Miu...

Stiga Clipper is a very good blade for attack and block oriented players.

This blade has a good touch and feeling.
Plays extremely well with new poly ball.

FH Rubber: Donic Bluefire JP 02 Max (Black)
BH Rubber: Butterfly Solcion 1.9 (Red)

Changed from Ebenholz V, IMO I think it need very little adjustment to play effectively (looping game). The clipper is a bit more stiff but soft, yet it is still easy to loop. Smash and touch play are still excellent. (Edit Nov 2015) After using for more than 4 months, I still say the same that it is good blade to play for smasher and power loop drive player. However, I stopped using it and switched to 5 plys mainly on control issue on loop and touch play. Yet I still find that the blade is too thick and heavy for my preference and set up.

The Clipper is very good in most areas. The control feels super and I think the sound of the blade is very nice. The blade is very popular in China and works for both all round and offensive players I think. Really a good blade.

Truly a classic blade and one of my favorite blades in my collection. Good quality for a low priced blade. Clipper is powerful and fast with excellent feel and control. I think it works best for loopers and blockers who likes stadning close to the table. It has good spin due to the soft wood, and has good control because of the stiffness.

Straight handle. Mark V 1,8 on both sides.
This blade is very good. Not as fast as one could expect from an off+ blade.
It's very slow in the shortgame. When I try to topspin or loop the ball, it's still slow compared to flexier blades.
I am not very good in looping. But that's one of the reasons why I bought this blade. I feel more confident in looping, Because this blade needs you to work more for the power.
Normally I play with BT555 and cj8000 36-38 2.0 both sides.

For passive play the ball goes medium-low. In the beginning I had problems getting the balls to the other side of the net. But when I started to put in more power, the ball went over. Like the high throw from the rubbers starts to kick in when playing more offensive. Again this blade needs one to put in own strenght to get out the power.
I don't find clipper much better for smashing than BT555. But it's definitely much better for blocking.
BT555 has more dwelltime and is better for generating spin.
Clipper has a big sweetspot.
I think clipper has better control for forehand looping. And BT555 is better for backhand looping.
I actually think that low-level players can't go wrong with this one.

The biggest reason why I bought this
blade, is the handle. I think clipper and stiga straight handles in general is the best there is.

Clipper is pretty heavy. But not headheavy. It gives a good balance for heavy rubbers. Only making it a little head-heavy compared to lighter blades.

good all wood classic blade, best works well with medium soft to midium rubbers. i use nitaku fastarc both side, does everything well. excellent for looping. balance of weight is not as good as some modern blade, hence try to use light rubbers at least one side. overall still a good blade. fit well in my collection but i must say blade throw is a bit lower than other ones i have, thats testing with same rubbers.

I use a Stiga Clipper (non CC, nor WRB) along with a Donic Bluefire M1(FH) and a Donic Bluefire M3(BH). This blade shines in a Controlled game circunstances, it can pretty much do everything. The drawback is that since it does a bit of everything, this blade has no substancial strengths, such as 3rd ball attacking, flicking, etc. It's possible to improve your game by going with extreme performance rubbers, like T64 for speed rallies, T05 for spinnier 3rd balls, or Chinese style rubbers for attacking everything close to the table.
This blade is one the best options for those who are looking for good and stable learning process in table tennis!

Powerful, fast blade with excellent feel and control.Using boost Tx Max andshort pips Clippa on Stiga Clipper Classic aka wood.Perfect combination. Clipper Classic joining my two other Swedish wood c-pen blades:Hybrid Wood and Avalox BT 777.A quality and well priced blade.Still amazing a true classic indeed.

This is a great blade for loopers and blockers.

the blade is great close to table, because it has good spin due to the soft wood, and has good control because of the stiffness.

loops to kill are powerful, that's why controlled loopers (like me) may like this blade.

block is great.

The blade is almost stiff. you can still feel a bit of flex but much less than the Stiga Offensive series.

I suggest heavy versions of this blade (92 grams and more) because otherwise you may lack the power to finish the point against dead balls, if your rubber is not very fast (no problem with m2, or coppa x1, or aurus, but serious problems with vega pro).

With advent of the 40mm ball this blade is a solid OFF class not OFF+. This blade is a joy to hold and is best for close/mid attackers who vary drives with loops. Slight flex when looping but strongest with blocks and counter attacks. FL handle was rough so needed sanding. Overall balance was excellent with nice feeling thicker than average FL handle. A great blade from Stiga for mid level and advanced players. Changed to a thick feeling ST grip. Provides less hand fatigue during long playing sessions and facilitates BH transitions. Other manufacturers take note. Clipper ST is the model for what an ST grip should be. Used by top players around the world winning many titles. Classic perfection.

Fast, hardness is medium. My blade weight is 83g. Fist time I try it, when I play tennis for 1 year. It's seems to me to much fast and very difficult to control. Only very slow (speed<=6) rubbers make it good for beginner. But now (2 year of play tennis) I like it, control seems good for me. I use it with shot pips (BH) and Stiga Mendo (FH).
(-) Very weak surface, pieces of top layer break off when take off rubber.
(+) Very good handle, super comfortable.

Great blade with medium to softer rubber. A little thick for my taste but a great all wood blade at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Great blade.It is light,s peed is great and the control too.
The elasticity is nerly stiff so it is a little bit flex.

Nice feeling, impressive dwell time for an Off+ blade. A bit heavy and too thick. FL master handle is comfortable and best suitable for topspin strokes.
