Table Tennis Blade: STIGA Blade Cybershape Carbon CWT Truls Edition flared
Cybershape Carbon CWT Truls Edition – a new member of the Cybershape family
The Cybershape family welcomes a new member! It’s the new Cybershape Carbon CWT Truls Edition – a blade with the same superior characteristics as the Cybershape Carbon CWT, but this time, it’s been developed in cooperation with Truls Möregårdh. The result is an upgraded design and specific weights of 3, 6, and 9 grams that are named for Truls’s three favourite shots: his chop block, backhand push, and forehand slap. The weights are easily attached to the bottom of your bat thanks to magnets inside the handle. This allows you to tailor your bat and find the perfect characteristics for your own play.
The Cybershape Carbon CWT Truls Edition is a 5+2-ply blade based on CCF technology (Close Core Fibre), which means that the carbon-fibre layer is applied directly on top of the wood core. This gives you more control while you also benefit from the carbon-fibre speed. The lightweight, technologically advanced carbon fibre also gives the blade more speed without sacrificing balance. Research has shown that the optimal hitting surface is located on the upper half of the blade.
As with our other Cybershape blades, therefore, the hitting surface and sweet spot are larger on the upper half and somewhat smaller on the lower half, thus maintaining the blade’s balance. This innovation has two advantages: the optimal hitting surface is now larger, but the centre of gravity has not shifted upward on the blade. The higher sweet spot also provides a more stable impact and more powerful shots without loss of control. In other words, this unique shape is not just a matter of looks – it gives the player specific advantages that can’t be achieved with traditionally shaped blades.
Adjust the balance point to your playing needs: Playing style, previous experience, and weight of the rubbers mean that preferences vary greatly from player to player. In addition, rubber weights vary, so it’s possible to adapt the blade weight with magnetic weights – thus allowing you to adjust and find the perfect balance. A lower total weight is suitable for players who stay close to the table and prefer faster play. Increased weight brings more kinetic energy, resulting in more powerful shots.
