The STIGA ProCarbon is our go-to choice for tournament rackets because we wanted to take the optimal mix of affordability and quality.
This racket is meant to destroy your opponent with power because a 5+2 blade made out of wood and carbon is hard enough on its own to powerful strikes, but when the S5 2mm rubber is added to the blade, you have guaranteed power.
Spin and control aren’t forgotten either, which is ensured by the semi-tacky rubber, although some people have reported that it loses its tackiness quickly. The shock dispersion tube on the handle absorbs vibration and transfers energy out of the handle, which guarantees control and a confident feel to your game.
This racket is also lightweight, allowing you to react to your opponent’s moves much faster than with a heavy racket. Despite its lightweight, its construction, sponge, and carbon layers ensure that it is powerful and durable. This racket is ITTF approved for tournament play, and it’s the best of its kind when thinking of both quality and affordability.
