This Stiga Emerald VPS V blade with a flared Legend handle is assembled with Stiga Airoc M max red and black rubber.
The blade: The Emerald VPS V is a lightweight 5-ply offensive blade built around two hand-selected middle veneers that have special temperature treatment (VPS). This gives the blade a unique stability. Combined with the new, beautiful green Ebenholz outer veneers, the Emerald VPS V offers sensational feeling, ideal for offensive players who demand great speed combined with control. The final finish with Diamond Touch technology gives the outer surface extra hardness and an incredibly smooth finish.
The rubber: STIGA Airoc utilizes STIGA's new OCS sponge technology (Oxygen Capsule System) to increase catapult effect without changing the spin ratio. This allows aggressive players to maintain the same spin/speed proportions they have always enjoyed. The key to this evolutionary advancement is the delicate balance between the size of the air pockets within the sponge and the elasticity of the top sheet. STIGA's engineers tested many different pips designs and tensions to achieve the perfect rubber for the attacking player. Poly Ball Optimized!
Airoc M is the Medium sponge version. Airoc M increases the catapult effect without changing the spin ratio.
