Stiga Clipper CR WRB Master grip Professional Table Tennis Blade - £23.62 with Amazon
Posted 20th Jun 2020

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Recognise it might be a somewhat niche product but it's a fantastic price for the blade that presently sells on Thorntons table tennis for £62.99 before delivery.

Very good table tennis blade for the price and direct from Amazon.

World-famous for its speed and especially appreciated by players who want additional force at their hit. Clipper blade is used by many Asian top class players. Increased speed without losing the "STIGA touch" thanks to the CR system.

Clipper wood was the choice 'weapon' by many top Chinese players for many years and is still a popular choice for it's power and speed.

Lots of guides available online for how to glue table tennis rubbers to a blade

Wow...first proper TT post I’ve ever seen on HUKD thanks(y)


My previous few were removed because deals from thorntons table tennis and bribar TT weren't allowed

Seems like specialist table tennis shop deals aren't allowed here (my perception considering Thorntons, Bribar, and Teesport are pretty much the largest shops in the UK), hence the lack of proper table tennis equipment deals

Ironically just had to buy a new blade and got a Stiga carbon all round from Thorntons.
Love Stiga blades, think this might be a bit fast for me anyway.

What was your previous blade? I've switched from a Stiga Arctic Wood to a Yinhe M201 PLC blade with the new Sanwei Gear Hyper (I wrote a review of it on table tennis daily)

Stiga classic tube, I think it was.
Chucked it is as it had a hairline crack around the handle.
Glad I spotted it before I put the new rubbers on.

Underrated range I think, the tube series. O picked up a cpen Stiga aluminium tube Chinese penhold blade and it was far more controllable than I imagined while still possessing good speed.

Players switch to carbon blades for a variety of reasons mostly to do with speed and power. One downside of carbon blades is reduced 'feeling' during play and overall reduced control (due to the increased speed and power) so I'd only suggest them for those who are already comfortable with all wood blades but need more power to win points.

Totally depends on your style, level, blade, and what type of rubbers you're already using. I don't believe in a 'best' rubber.

Switching from Chinese-style sticky/tacky rubbers to the European-style bouncy non-sticky/tacky ones or the other way around is a big change I tend to discourage players from doing. I'd usually suggest a mid-step to ease the transition.

Let me know your style, blade, and what rubbers you're already using and I can make more informed suggestions

Is this a euphemism?
Can get 2 BATS and a few balls for less than this in sports direct. Cold.

NONE of them are any good. And the ones that are more expensive than this one are vastly overpriced.

Even the prebuilt Yinhe Galaxy 01b bat I tend to suggest to others here (£15 or less) is better than nearly all the available bats at Sports Direct including those that cost £25 there.

It''s not the bat, it's the player.... This bat would be useless unless you're a seasoned and undefeated pro like me and could win with a £2 sports direct bat.

TBF I'm only using a Palio Expert at the moment but I'm disappointed that the rubber is degrading after only 10 hours of play. I'm not about speed and prefer spin but perhaps that's not the way forward. My backhand sucks

That's a decent pre built. With the CJ8000 rubbers you have on it you'll need to clean them regularly with a soft sponge and water. They can last for many months so I'm surprise yours have degraded that quickly.

A slight step up from them is the Palio AK47 Blue. Another good budget option is the Yinhe Big Dipper.

Do you have contact with anyone who could change the rubbers for you? Or, are you prepared to change them yourself?

I suppose I just loved that fresh sticky feeling. Have only cleaned twice so will make an effort to do it more often. Thanks.

Too bad my previous deal posts got removed.

Two very different blades. This will be slower but will give a more woody feeling. Guess it depends on whether you're ok with all wood blades or whether you prefer/need carbon based blades.

The Clipper is still a pretty legendary blade though! Maybe as an experimental setup? It's the cheapest Clipper wood you can get right now after all!

What do you have on your TBS?

I also play with TBS and was wondering if the Clipper would be slower. I want to go have a better feeling so it might be a good purchase. My rubbers are Rakza 7 and Stiga Boost TS on backhand.
Really, really missing my weekly meetup for a couple of hours thrashing around at the leisure centre..........
I use a Carbonado 145 with Master grip.
The grip is not perfect for me and needed to add tape, which resulted in loss of feeling. I am planning to replace this with Carbonado 190 with straight grip, which I would was perfect for me and had good feeling.

I might have picked this blade to try, but the price has gone up to £34

It's going to be quite different from the TBS because of the increased flex. I'd certainly suggest this Clipper for a better feel (and definitely at this price or half the RRP) but just be aware you may need to adjust your strokes a bit to compensate for the increased flex (which would affect spin generation and ball acceleration).

The two rubbers you have pair nicely with many blades though I've felt the Boost TS to be too mushy compared to other European-style rubbers. I'd suggest the Rakza 7 Soft instead or the Xiom Vega Asia/Europe on the backhand (Europe for spin and control, Asia for counter attacking). For newer generation rubbers, I've heard good things about the Stiga DNA Pro M.

Edit: I've also just seen that there are a few red sheets of Stiga Calibra Tour S rubbers on Amazon for just over £23. It generally goes for £35-£40 so this is a good price. 11 sheets available at time of this edit:

I have been using Stiga rubbers for the past 5 years, starting with CalibraLT, Tour, Airoc & Genesis. Of all these, Tour was my least favourite. I am planning to upgrade to DNA ProH versions next.

Maybe on the Stiga Nostalgic VII Classic? Going for just over £40 on Amazon through prime delivery
Price seems to be fluctuating regularly but since it's now £10 above my deal price I've expired it. Mind you, £33 for this blade is still a good deal!
Nice to see a table tennis item on here. Amazon isn't the 1st place I would look, although our club has bought nets through them.
