Hi guys!
I currently play with a Crest Off blade.
I really like the it but as a second blade I would like to know if there is a blade with similar characteristics (speed, directness, almost no vibration, control...) but at a lower price.
Thanks

I would go with a Xiom Vega Pro blade, they are fantastic. The lowest price I find is there https://www.spboui.com/xiom-vega-pro-st-blade but I do not know that store at all and the price is VERY low.

The PingPongHouse on Amazon (or ebay) also has them. They are highly reliable sellers. BTW from that store, I warmly recommend you buy that blade: https://www.amazon.com/Pingponghouse-Table-Tennis-Blade-Handle/dp/B07B22ZX66 limba zlc kiri... it's a nobrainer at this price, go for it!

Thanks! I've already tryed the Vega pro Blade.
I was not as stiff and not as fast.
Some years ago I've tried a zetro quad. It's hinoki instead of limba but I liked it though I don't really remember how it played

Crest OFF is a great and underrated blade... Hard to find any cheap substitute for a blade like it.. Very close characteristics of Mizutani ZLC, IMO.

 Maybe you can find a used one to have a backup..

most Vega Pro blades are closer to 80 grams. The best one I tried was 89g but they are rare at that weight. The PingPongHouse ZLC blade is what you are looking for then, at 88/90gr if you can. I think it's the closest you can get on a budget.

I've been searching for some info about that blade but couldn't find any.
Perhaps I'll be waiting for someone who wants to sell it.
Mizutani costs even more.
The best price I can find for a new Crest Off is 105 euros here in Portugal

It has shown "PENDING" for a while I think, it might be available.
