The Top 10 Blades of 2019

27 May 2020  | Posted in: Table Tennis Equipment

10. Nittaku Acoustic Nittaku Acoustic

Our first newcomers to the list, number 10 and number 9 in the top 10s are typical representatives of the heavyweight family. It's a kind of miracle that with the high prices of more than 160 EUR and 180 EUR respectively (incl. VAT) they managed to become so popular. Number 9 in particular is priced at more than double the costs of some of these other blades.

8. Tibhar Stratus Power Wood Tibhar Stratus Power Wood

Our current No 8 was No. 6 in 2018 and No. 7 in 2017. Can we say that it is gradually losing its ground? We rather believe that this dynamic indicates a large and constant popularity in the market.

We could easily pair up each of these blades like we did number 9 and 10. There is a pair of Nittaku blades, a pair of Tibhar blades, a pair of Stiga blades, and two pairs of Yasaka blades, an all-wood pair and a carbon pair.  Our number 7 and number 8 are a pair of Yasaka carbon blades with very similar names. Together with number 9 they are the only 3 carbon blades in the top 10. The remaining seven are all all-wood blades.

3. Tibhar Samsonov Force Pro Black Edition Tibhar Samsonov Force Pro Black Edition

   The current number 3 was on the 2nd position in 2018 and on the 1st place in 2017. Is it a beginning of a long journey down of this only top 10 blade to be comprised of 7 plies all-wood? This, only time can tell.

1. Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive

Unlike the 10th and 9th place blades, the number 1 most popular blade of 2019, the Yasaka Ma Lin Extra Offensive is quite cheap. It is the second cheapest on this list, tied with the Stiga Allround Classic. It made a jump up from 3rd place, where it had been since 2017, and now sits proudly in 1st place.
