    Posted: 05/20/2012 at 6:01pm
I have been playing penhold for over 20 years, and had a few chopping / fun games and always wanted to try Def style one day.

I was thinking of getting a defensive setup, with long pimple on BH and a spinny rubber (for chopping) on the FH.

My friend (reseller for Yasaka) has a Sweden Classic, which he can offer to me at a good price.

Another friend has Grass D-Tecs OX, which I understand is difficult for beginners to control. He also has a Joola Def blade - but I didn't get the model name yet.

Would you say the Sweden Classic is a decent blade for me to learn Def play, and what rubbers would you recommend.

Thanks in advance

I have a Sweden Classic set up for defence as a fun chopping blade
I have T05 on forehand and 802-40 (short pips)  with 1mm sponge on backhand.

The spin and spin reversal is not as funky as long pips but it is super consistent for chopping forehand and backhand


I like this set up better than Joo with long pips or CWX

 Sweden Classic is a great blade for beginners, allround control style, and defenders. It has huge dwell time and the quality is nice. The one I own has a large ST handle.

Sweden classic seems a great blade to learn with. On the other hand if you are a competent player already compared with a very good ALL or ALL+ blade it's left lacking in the feel and general ease of play department at my level at least and also has almost no dwell compared to a flexible blade. There's very little kick in the blade and it feels very... well lacking in both power and control. If the control was there then that would be fine but it's not there either.

I'm just talking from the perspective of a general allround blade and it maybe better when used with specific chopping rubbers, for some reason I just feel like it wont be. You might be able to say it's a good blade when compared to a limited number and limited quality of blade but it's definitely not at the pointed end of elite allround blades or anywhere near it.

I will add the Sweden classic I hit with has improved with age and is a better blade at one year old than it was when new but it's still not where it should be
