    Posted: 07/22/2007 at 3:15pm

i know for rpb that a thin blade is best for that and i know this from experience but i was curious what the thikcness should be on a blade for hitting with shortpips, is it desired to be thicker or thinner i figured thicker to have more feel but would it be dramatic either way?

It seems like there are not many penholders using short pips.
Or perhaps it is better to move this topic to the Equipment section to get more viewers ?

i would still say stay with as thin of a blade as possible but try to find one with some power
