I have 2 setups:
Setup 1: Clipper blade: H3 Neo Max thickness, Mark V Max thickness
Setup 2: Dawei Genote Quattro X blade: 2008 XP 1.8 mm thickness both sides.
Setup 1 is obviously faster and spinnier. However I lose a bit of control. Mark V is a softer sponge and is more reactive to incoming spin however it is easier to loop.
Setup 2 is a bit slower and less spinnier. However it has more control easier to lift heavy spin serves and easier to hit flat shots and put more balls on the table.
Setup 1 had been my primary setup however off late I recently tried playing with Setup 2 and found that I was able to beat a few higher level players which I had failed to come close with Setup 1. So I have now switched to Setup 1 for my matches and during training I play with a faster Setup 2.
My question is how can I use these setups to my advantage. Which setup would be advantageous against which style of player and equipment. Also which setup is better for me to improve my own game?
