Hello team,

I got Nittaku Barwell Fleet blade, it is 95(!) g of weight. My current set up is 170g, on Butterfly Maze Performance (75g) with Donic Baracuda (46g) and Xiom Vega Europe (42g). 

Any advice on similar rubbers to maintain reasonable weight with the new Nittaku blade? 

Thank you!

Maybe Vega Euro DF. It is softer than Vega Euro so probably lighter
Blade - Xiom 36.5 ALX FL
Forehand - Stiga DNA Dragon Grip 2.3mm
Backhand - Victas Curl P5V with SpinLord Waran 1.8mm sponge

Fastarc S1 is super light. I just weighed it and it comes in at 41g cut for the 2.0mm.

Play with softer rubber or pips on one side.  Or reduce the thickness of your rubbers I'd you use harder sponges and heavier rubbers.  But it is often better to just do a lot of exercise to protect against injury and use whatever weight you want over time and adjust to it.

Sometimes it is more the weight balance than the absolute weight that is an issue.  95g may feel fine to some players if the center of gravity is closed to the handle.  I sometimes use griptape to increase the handle weight. 

Hope all this gives you ideas.
I like putting heavy topspin on the ball...

I taped a coin to the bottom of the handle with masking tape to increase the weight of the handle.
