Topic: Stiga Infinity VPS V
Posted By: nikk64
Subject: Stiga Infinity VPS V
Date Posted: 04/02/2013 at 8:28am
New product reached the market since 05. 2013. A new technology, and very likely a new high in price.Beer

The Infinity VPS V - with Diamond Touch (OFF) with the brand new VPS technology (Veneer Precision System) is built with two hand-selected middle veneers that are treated with a unique and exact heating and cooling process with precisely measured time and temperature.

The Diamond Touch technology gives the outer veneers extra hardness and the surface an incredibly smooth finish and combined with the VPS technology the result is an offensive lightweight blade with outstanding solid touch and feeling.

Infinity VPS V gives you the possibility to master the key elements in today's modern game: aggressive receives which help you gain the upper hand at an early stage, and the possibility to follow up with powerful and aggressive topspin shots. Developed together with top players from the Chinese National Team, the Infinity VPS V suits the more offensive minded player with powerful topspin strokes!

Speed: 100 Control: 70 Veneers: 5 Type: Off Approx weight: 85 g

Available in all STIGA grips: Classic (Straight), Legend (Concave), Master (Concave narrow), Winner (Anatomic), Champ (Conic) and Pen.

I am wondering why Stiga is so in love with very hard blades.

i hope it is a looping blade that is closer to clipper than the hardwood series.

It will be closer to Clipper than the hardwood series. It is lighter than Clipper.

The price will be around 50-55 euro

the blade however will be positioned between OC Nct Carbon & Clipper

I will have it next week, and will do some reviews if someone needed

The official start is 05.05.13

I spend with this blade 3 session -2 hours each.
I will use clipper & Oc for comparrison,rubbers i used for the test was Aurus Sound FH & BH
Infinity blade is Stiff,quite stiff, whatever the top ply to me look like the NCT to glue rubbers no problem at all

Speed a notch slower than original clipper,good close to the table and mid distance
more than 2.5 metres  i start feel lack of speed
good feel for the ball,aurus sound really "hug" the ball and catapult it with tons of spin

The blade is good for loopers ,blockers and choppers i didnt found it good enought for flats (where clipper shines).

My personal view is that stiga perform this blade to feel the gap between OC and rw v
(and the price gap also ) :)

Overall the control is good i will rate it 8.5 (but this is probably because of the rubbers)

Speed is something very personal but to me it it seems like 8 to 8.2 and lets say clipper is 8.4-5

A person who want a upgrade from OC probably should give a try

but its far more away from rw and eb

finish is tupical for stiga-Bad and rough my blade weight 84.6 grs,which is not bad for legend handle

do you think that blocking is better than clipper?


Posted By: TopSpinNinja
Date Posted: 05/08/2013 at 9:12am
I can block with anything ,but in general stiffer blades block better
which lead to an answer NO

So how does it feel? Hard/soft? Catapult?Dwell?
I hate hardwood series that have hard and dead feel.

for me its medium feel- catapult like clipper
dwell-hm, aurus sound its pretty dwelly

blade is good for loopers,but depends what your level is

some people can execute 30
drills other can do 3

IMHO, the blade in this picture is not a Viscaria.  It does not look like the Viscaria that I have in  my hand right now.

Yes, of course I read the whole thread. In my view, FZD is very unlikely to have switched to an Infinity - it bears no similarity to a Viscaria. The thread linked to is inconclusive, with views both ways. You will note, I'm sure, the civility and courtesy demonstrated there. Perhaps it's something some members here can learn from.

The thread is inconclusive? There is not even the slightest shred of evidence that FZD uses a Viscaria with Infinity VPS handle in that thread. First of all, the ambiguous photo which opens the thread is not an Infinity handle. Second, there's no evidence that the paddle belongs to FZD. Third, the photo I zoomed in on, where we actually see FZD, is most obviously not a Viscaria.

tabten5, you're right, I lacked civility in my response. I tend to get irritated by the propagation of internet hoaxes. And I'm really surprised that you, a member I've always found to be sensible and helpful, would quote something as if it's fact, with a link to a totally ridiculous thread.

Doing a google search of the images, I see that a similar thread can be found on a Vietnamese, Japanase, and Chinese forum. Each time, the isolated photos are shown without ever having such a paddle in FZD's hands.

edited to add: I'm more than willing to believe in a handle-swap conspiracy... but only when it's presented with credibility

I get where Theologian is coming from completely, and I suppose we are all a bit uncivil sometimes (I know I am guilty on occasion). 

Let me give one example of how stuff like this sometimes gets started.  Recently, in a thread about the new ZJK blades, a frequent poster here (who is not a moderator) and who likes to review blades that he is selling wrote this:

"The different with Viscaria, both 93 gr, it has more feel, more whipping effect, more solid feel.
I just wonder if Zhang Jike is using ZJK ALC with Viscaria Handle at the past.
Now Butterfly really make ZJK ALC for public
."

Next thing you know, his "just wonder" will somehow become an accepted fact, at least in some places, no matter how irrational it is.  Why would Btfly have ZJK put Viscaria handles on a blade they are selling for more money?  Wouldn't they rather sell $150-350 fancy new ZJK blades as opposed to $105 Viscarias?  Does it strike anyone that they are that bad at marketing their stuff?  In fact, are they not actually quite good at marketing?  (By the way, the fancy new ZJK blades are not bad, this same poster did outline some of the ways they are actually different from Viscaria, so the thread had value.  However,  it is quite obvious that ZJK himself is not using any of them, as recently as earlier this week.  So why even hint otherwise?).

I've never seen an Infinity blade, so can't say what FZD's current blade is, but I am pretty sure what it isn't.

Fzd blade is infinity. That layering from the picture is infinity. Not Viscaria.
I got several hd blade pictures from latest tournaments and they all seem infinity.
Besides i do not think Fzd is going to lie in his interviews about using an Infinity.

The suspicion has existed before that thread, especially given the frequency of new sponsor handles (Liqin, Ovtcharov, etc, etc.) Logically, it's unlikely that FZD changed the blade he grew up with to one that is so different in most aspects (head size, handle, thickness, plies, feel, weight, speed, and so on.) Without any pictures, I would remain suspicious (as many others do). I'm not suggesting that thread provides evidence which would apply in a courtroom, and rest assured my original reply was meant tongue-in-cheek. The short answer is that nobody here knows what he is using; it could be anything (including the Infinity.)

FZD uses infinityvps and the 2nd layer of spruce is evident on the pic, if it was a viscaria the 2nd layer would have been different. i have seen other better pics and it is infinity for sure that is aside from a stiga insider who is a reliable source than just people who speculates here and yes, that stiga insider also told me about non-stiga rubbers being used by their players so the notion that because stiga sponsors these players, the equipment they are using are not stiga and are just marketing hype

Hmmm, I am sure Ma Long would have something to say about switching from composite to all-wood blades. Wink Just because you establish a logical reasoning doesn't mean it is valid.

I know its hard to get that sweet feeling but i noticed Violin lacked a bit of raw power once you step back off the table and needed lot of power and didn't go so well with Chinese rubbers.

On the other hand Acoustic has nothing to do with violin, it was fine for me on my FH but too bouncy for my BH and well as blocking or short game.

ive been using infinity vps for a month now. as far as i can tell this is the fastest all-wood blade ive used, as fast as my previous blade which was tibhar rapid carbon. its vibration, as you would get from most all wood blades, really gives you a good feel with the ball. i recommend people use this with the latest tensor rubbers, and maybe the tenergys too. the rubbers that i have used with the vps were bryce, bluefire m2, desto f2, h3 national blue sponge, and acuda s1. vps really sucked with bryce, it was really....dead. desto f2 was ok, i just felt the rubber was too slow on vps. same with h3 national blue sponge, although it did bite the ball better, being tacky and having more dwell time because of vps's allwood characteristic. acuda s1 is good on vps, but im not liking the "cracking" sounds acuda s1 makes because it then bottoms out. now comes bluefire m2, this is were i felt vps really shined. the ball had a really good arch with bfm2 + vps and it rarely bottoms out...

ive used neither of them. sorry. ive done a couple of hits with other all wood blades. i dont remember most of them. what i do remember is with the stiga master classic and stiga cr classic, and also yasaka extra carbon and also a few other carbon and allwood blades that vibrate a lot. i can tell you vps is faster than any of the ones i've used or atleast have hit a couple of balls with. the only blades faster than vps are sardius and the t-11

I really doubt it could  be faster that Clipper&neither par with it. Considering the total thickness as well as the ply construction i think it can be closer to a a Korber in terms of speed.

Agreed +1.
And mine was a good weight one.
Do not know what blade is mrdoodzki talking about.
A MM or a Viscaria are quite more powerful and faster blades than the vps. Also a clipper cr. Fast close to a korbel.
Imo the vps is all+-off-. It needs arm power.

Agree with above. VPS is quite fast compared to, say, Rosewood XO but noticably slower than BTY composites. It is rather stiff which makes a transition from composite to it quite easy. You get more control with less power but overall similar feel.

Makes sense since Clipper is 7-ply, Infinity should not be faster. I am a 5-ply blade fan ^__^ Played with Korbel for the last year and thinking of a trying something "new" lol

Mine arrived today morning. In fact, quality& finishing  has improved  from those rough old Stiga Series, although it´s still far away from top-notch BYT-DARKER-Nittaku blade.  I don´t  consider to sand the handle, it´s ok. 
Since I don´t have enough time to try it, i´ll make a brief review once i could tried a few sessions. Ive only took a ball with the bare blade,  and it´s not bouncier than my Acoustic, nearly the same. Knuckle test knock also sounds a different pitch from my Acoustic,  maybe a bit more grave, somehow more compact, harder.

Thickness are also so close, maybe Infinity only a tad thicker.

I´ll begin testing it with 05 FH 05FX BH, but i don´t think i can´t match with Chinese boosted on FH, since looks like powerful enough

I only have one Acoustic, but that's 5.85mm - all my Infinity are 6.15-6.20mm

The Infinity "official" spec of  "5.9mm" is wrong - at least to my experience of 5 different Infinity.

Yes, you´re right. It´s  maybe 0.2-0.3mm thicker

Agreed +1.
And mine was a good weight one.
Do not know what blade is mrdoodzki talking about.
A MM or a Viscaria are quite more powerful and faster blades than the vps. Also a clipper cr. Fast close to a korbel.
Imo the vps is all+-off-. It needs arm power.


no...VPS is slow in mid power but very fast in max power. Look at those powerful shot from FZD..

Well, at last  i could try Infinity V this morning and now i´ve got a closer idea about how it performs.

First of all, I don´t want to dissapoint FZD supporters but i really really doubt he´s in fact playing with Infinity V, in spite he´s got amazing technique, footwork, power etc... FZD he´s for sure  between  5 best gifted pro players all over the world, but  he´s still a humang being, so would swear that it´s almost imposible  to get that super speed with INF-V playing with chinese ultraboosted rubbers. Maybe he plays with infinity handles on something like clipper, how knows. Unless i can prove it& and see it with my own eyes, I think he´s lying about his equipment. 

As Yogi mentioned, i would rate this blade as OFF- mainly. Mine was 83gr, 05fh 05fx bh.  I´ve been  playing Acoustic for a few years so i´ll try to compare both.  There´s less vibration than acouctic, but it´s not as stiff and hard as clipper or hardwood series. 

Speed: I don´t think it´s faster than my former Acoustic, perhaps a tad slower. It´s somewhere between Primorac Off- / Korbel Euro version (oval plastic tag). It´s great for close to the table play, but once you step back a few from the table you´ll feel the  lacks of power. 

Spin: I think i can generate even more spin than my acoustic, at least i believe it  can bite the ball even better . Brushing looping and services are a breeze, loaded with tons of spin.

Control: This is a control based blade, with typical great feeling trademark of Stiga. You can do anything, but if you´re looking for raw speed, then it´s not your blade. It shines on services, as well as service returns, chops, dropshots flicks on the table. Ball placement is great, you can drive easily  with  incredible accuracy. 

I´ll give a more detailed review in a future since i these are my first impressions.

Just because it's not as fast a carbon / composite blades? There are a lot of pros who use 5-ply woods like Korbel off. I don't see that argument having real grounds on whether FZD uses it Infinity or not.

I mean, I wouldn't be surprised if he didn't and it's just infinity handles, nor I am claiming I know what he's using.

Fzd is using the infinity. It is quite clear in the pictures. Not just the handle but the layering.
I have been using it for months. A 87 gr weight sample and it has all the performance to play at any level.
It allows more arm power.
Fzd also talked about selecting the weight.
The infinity is a perfect off- blade to play at top level.

Maybe mine´s too light for 83. Even my Acoustic 79gr was faster than INF-V.  According to the pics, his blade looks quite thin, not as thick as typical clipper so whatever he´s using for boosting his rubbers must have a very strong effect..   I´ve been trying to tune it with Falco tempo long and never could get that amount of speed on any chinese rubber

Where am I comparing to fzd? Can you read properly?

There are thousands amateurs that CAN easily make run the ball faster than any pro, just like my bro who's 193m&95kg. Its not a matter of technique its just only raw strength. So simple.

LOL just wow. 

hao shuai is not a big guy. seeing him play at NA teams, no one's shot thus far was even close in speed. and we have 6'4" football players, weight lifters, ppl even taller and heavier than your bro. 

strength matters, but not as much as you think. seeing world class pros in person, u can really appreciate their speed. overhead cam angles on videos don't do any justice.

I have had the opportunity to watch´em live at 10 metres close to me when La General was playing ECL´S during a few years. I could see Vladi, Timo, Dima, Süss, Primorac, Gardos, Chen Qi, Machado, Juanito... what really surprise me was  their footwork, capacity to read the game and anticipation to their opponents, and well as their skill to hit the ball always with perfect body balance, but once again, i´ve seen many amateurs (not me) that can hit same or even harder. 

Back to Topic i think any bluefire (M1/m2) will suit better that 05 if you don´t want to tune it.

I got a 83 gram, but feel has plenty of power, not sure how it characterizes as a off - blade.
It has very hard ourter layer and soft inside, therefore
it needs some power kick the ball into blade. Is slow in mid power but very fast in full power.
I think infinity is design for high level player. Well, i'm not a high level player but I can see the point why FZD pick this blade. With infinty, it is really with infinity support, it doesn't lock of your power, speed is linear reflect to your power. very controllable loop with low arc, that is exactly what pros looking for.
This blade might not fit 90% of us, but I think FZD is using it.

I'm not sure where are you coming from as this blade has plenty of power. You might really use to slow blade. I would rate it the same as others at off-. It is no where near ALC composite.
FZD referred in the interview as  he has to use self-power. Which means it lacks top-gear and he has to compensate by his strength. 
I would bet if he switches to ALC or super-ALC things, we will see the balls fly. Not sure about his overall game though.

come on..
if so, I think this blade not for you.
as what I mention, it require minimal power to kick the ball into blade before you see the effect, but after that speed will linear reflect to power you put.
I play with ALC, Viscaria too, yes is much fast for blocking and action in slow, but full power loop not as fast as infinity.
All pros has to use self-power, compare with now you think FZD can makes the ball even faster but switches to ALC? No, carbon blade lacks top-gear but not wood. that's why many pros use wood blade like WLQ who play away from table.

All pro has self power for sure. But find the FZD.'s interview and read yourself. He believes he lost some power but gain quality of his balls from using pure wood instead of composite.

I think Infinity VPS/Intesity NCT are not comparable to Viscaria. I played both Infinity/Intensity for about 4 months and now I turned back to my Viscaria. The differrence is huge. I find my Viscaria better in all aspects: control, speed, spin, close or far from the table. Viscaria is very versatile compared to these two blades. Intensity is very good for topspin close to the table but lacks power when it comes to blocks. Infinity has good control and spin close to the table (not better than Viscaria anyway) but once you make a step from the table you feel it lacks power. I consider Infinity and Intensity are in essence topspin + control blades for a close to the table game. But Viscaria is better in all aspects: excelent feeling and control, alows you to play a very complex tennis (topspin, blocks, pushes, chops...etc anything you want, close or far from the table). It is a complete blade for all amateur to top proffesional players.

well, obvious wood more easy to bend than carbon, right? carbon blade faster when ball just kick in the carbon layer but after that the change is small. Let say you put 70% of your power, you will get 80 speed on carbon and 70 on wood. but if you put 90% of your power the effect might be something like 90 on carbon 95 on wood.
for infinity, it designed with very hard outer layer if the outer layer bends a lot it can store huge energy.
just because most of us for most of time not able to do so. I agree this blade not fitting most of us, well, not the best blade for me either. But I can see why pros pick this blade, they don't have off- shots....
me.. I have no problem with FH, ball go deep, long dwell time very fast and controlable , but BH not able to do so.
This blade is for player with fast stroke, someone like Truong and Liang Yonghui with fast stroke will work.
Acutually, I gave my infinity to Liang Yonghui to try. I can fell the ball super fast, but spin not as much as his viscaria somehow.

Let say you put 70% of your power, you will get 80 speed on carbon and 70 on wood. but if you put 90% of your power the effect might be something like 90 on carbon 95 on wood.


Good explanation. Unfortunately most 2-nd-ply composite blades lack feel and top-gear power. They even create the impression of hollow powerlessness when hitting hard.

I manage to get 92.97 gr and 94 gr ( with plastic sticker ) The sticker it self is about 2 gr.
So real weight is 90 and 92 gr.
This blade can be slow or fast because this is all wood blade, it depends on the weight.
I have tried 88 gr and 92 gr DHS 506, the 88 gr is softer and slower.

I did, he don't like the spin, that's what I hesitate contiue to use this blade also. It may not be a good blade for him too.

Infinity VPS has arrived, since mine is 92.6 gr, it's almost as fast as W968...
I will do the testing to compare it with W968.
I use same rubber on both blades so it's a fair comparison.

Thanks ejmaster Beer
I just wonder if FZD's Infinity has the same head size as the commercial one...
The head size of VPS is smaller than Violin...
But I put H3 National Blue sponge and T 64 it feels just right.
If bigger head size, it will be very head heavy.
