Speeding up of tabletennis called for developing faster and more dynamic rackets. There were different substances eg.: graphit, metal implemented into the wood, that made them stiffer and enlarged sweet-spot. Due to this ‘evolution’ Clipper Wood, Graphit Wood and Metal wood came out for carrying out the offensive minded playing strategies. Meanwhile Stiga tried to raise up the predecessors under the name ‘Classic’ – to average purpose. This term presented the end of ‘old Stiga feeling’. The company has moved out from Tranas respectively manufacturing has moved in to Eskilstuna. At the original place in Tranas started to make Yasaka blades.
We have just released our OSP Musko OFF PRO blade. We developed that racket for Peter Musko our National Champion 2010. He demanded very fast racket that provides power from much of the distances by using incorporated built in glue effect rubbers meanwhile he does not want to sacrifice other advantages covered by OSP blades. At the same time we built a new category that reflects it is a real weapon with very professional features. Musko OFF PRO can easily provide longer but still secured arc than Ultimate to push your opponent back and the head torque gives enermous speed if you want. This racket still delivers the information you need into your palm to feel and enjoy the game.
For those who are keen on sharp offensive playing and want incorporated springs instead of diagonal flexibility we have built the 7 ply OSP Ultimate. Also with Limba outer ply. Softer touch – sharp points.
We have just released our controlled offensive OSP blade. It really controls your offensive strokes. If you like the natural Limba feeling and can cope with its speed you can easily become a virtuose with OSP Virtuoso.
