This Nittaku Flame Carbon blade with a flared handle is assembled with Stiga DNA Platinum XH 2.3 red and black rubber.
Blade: The Nittaku Flame Carbon is designed using their “burning wood” technology and is loaded with kevlar/carbon. The result is an incredible offensive blade with increased speed. The Flame Carbon is a new approach to carbon table tennis blades.
The rubber: Stiga DNA Platinum is the latest addition to STIGA's DNA series that features a new generation of table tennis rubbers from Germany. The unique rubber composition provides an excellent grip, allowing the player to strike the ball from really challenging angles. The short pimples together with the thin top sheet means that DNA Platinum can accommodate a thicker sponge (up to 2.3 mm), which gives you additional speed and power in the game. Thanks to the PSC (Power Sponge Cell) technology, you get a longer ball trajectory with more power in your stroke and an aggressive arc in loop play. The sponge pores also enhance the contact between the rubber and the blade, which means that you get that sought-after, crisp sound in your stroke. The extra hard sponge has been developed for players seeking the highest possible speed. The rubber provides the power and speed required to complete duels in a very quick and efficient way.
- A sponge hardness of 52.5 degrees is ideal if you seek a rubber that offers the highest possible speed.
