Blade: Butterfly W. Schlager carbon
Forehand: Butterfly Tenergy 64-FX
Backhand: Friendship R.I.T.C 729
Question: I am looking to buy a new paddle and new rubber for my backhand. I am a 1900-2000 level player in the U.S. I am looking for a paddle with more control and spin with medium to hard feel. Along with the spin component I do not want to compromise on speed as I prefer to hit the ball flat. Also I need an ideal rubber for backhand to improve backhand looping. Any advice about the combination of paddle and rubber to buy?
Answer: Hi Ajit,
I would recommend the Michael Maze carbon blade. It has excellent speed and a large sweet spot.
For the Backhand Tenergy 25 might be a good choice. It is great for flat hitting and has plenty of speed and spin.
