Dr. Neubauer Barricade: A defensive blade with excellent control Conceived for all players defending away from the table. Also very effective for short blocking close to the table. Especially those players using long pimples and seeking a slow blade for maximum spin reversal will be enchanted by Barricade. It enables very safe and yet dangerous chopping thanks to its relatively slow speed.

Barricade offers an excellent control and outstanding effectiveness for all rubber types: Maximum spin reversal can be reached when used with long pimples. With reversed rubbers or short pimples you can reach high rotation while chopping with Barricade. On top of this you can attack through looping or hitting in order to confuse your opponent.

To sum it up, Barricade provides an optimal balance between control and effectiveness for all passive and active strokes.

Great for blocking and imparting spin.

Excellent Blade

Light weight and great control. Blocks well.

Fantastic Blade for Modern Defense

I find that the Barricade goes great when matched up with long pips, as the ad says. Ive been using it with Tenergy 25 2.1mm and Stiga Destroyer Ox. Even though it is a Def+ blade, I get plenty of speed off of my loop drives when combined with Tenergy. My defensive game has never been better. With a good sense of touch, I can block back even the hardest smashes or the spinniest loops with my long pips. It plays fine chopping away from the table as well. I recommend it to any aspiring long pips modern defenders.
