JOOLA Chen WeiXing Blade Review

The JOOLA Chen WeiXing blade is a high-quality defensive blade from the Chen series. The company designs it according to the playing style of the top European defensive ping pong player. The racket is just well suited for players who want good control.
The defensive blade has always been one of the popular blades produced by JOOLA.

Now JOOLA officially designed and developed a modern defensive blade for Chen Weixing, one of the world’s best defensive players.

This blade can control the ball when the ball is chopped, but it can also let the player hit the fast and strong topspin.

The ability to combine the two features is because JOOLA added a “BLACK CLOTH” material to the blade.

Quality Built With Premium Material

The blade is built with 7-ply, including 2 Limba, 2 Koto, 2 Black Cloth, and 1 Kiri in the middle ply. It can provide a very good balance between top screw shots and control chops with such a design.

It is categorized as medium speed and extra high control. The weight is approximately 90 grams.

The JOOLA Chen WeiXing is considered to be a slightly top handle. However, there are a few elements that need to be factored in as well.

Larger Head Design

The oversize head along the way to the paddle may vary from an average size blade. Generally, it can be categorized as an oversize blade with a great center of gravity handle.

The JOOLA Chen WeiXing is the perfect blade for modern defensive players with input from the world-class defending player.

The racket offers players a lot more surface area to carry out their chopping stroke by having a larger head design. Besides, it can also give you a very good performance in pick-hitting. The layers of Black Cloth offer a player extra control for them to get hold of.

Excellent Speed For Counter Attack

The blade has an excellent speed required for players when they want to make a counterattack. There is no problem at all for them to perform a powerful smashing.

You need to bear in mind that as the head of the blade is oversize, it can become even heavier if you put two thick rubbers at both sides of the blade.

A Heavyweight Blade

However, there is one recommendation for you to solve the issue if you are concerned with the heavyweight. What you can do is at the time you want to attach new rubber on it. You can adjust and align the rubber slightly further away from the handle. By doing so, it will reduce the rubber mass on the blade.

The JOOLA Chen WeiXing is a good racket that offers a player to play forehand loop to loop and backhand attack (long pips). It has a good protective base, hard top layer, and a great spot that sustained a rebound.

It is very reliable for anyone to play a defensive stroke with a good distance and a neat block of thorns under the grid on the table.

My Experience With The Blade

If the force is relatively concentrated, it can generate a very low arc. My opponent was very uncomfortable with the shot because he missed out on many arc shots from me.


I am playing the chop for my first shot. And I will continue to play the chop whenever I can. If a shot cannot be chopped, I will smash it back. I seldom play with the block.

The shot that I make generally has a lower arc. It is also great for me to drive the ball. I can exert with little strength to drive, and the ball will return to the opponent’s side. The reverse spin is also good. I do several reverse spins, and the opponent just made a lot of mistakes to receive my reverse spin.


Putting long pimples at the backhand is not bad. It has high accuracy. My forehand is also okay, better than I expected, and it should be better for me to drive the ball after some time.

Also, the key to play long pimples with a shakehand blade is to rely on the forehand. If you rely on the backhand and not willing to move sideways, this can be dangerous as your opponent will adapt to your playing style very fast, and they will beat you in no time.

If you love to buy this blade, you can get it from Megaspin.

Which rubber is suitable for the JOOLA Chen Weixin blade?

For amateur players, I would suggest them to choose more sticky pimples in rubber for their forehand. The DHS Celestial Pole 2 is the rubber I think is good for amateur players.

The amateur players can try with the single long pimples rubber first and then adjust the technical level without adding a sponge.

When choosing rubber, it is considerable selectivity as not all long pimples rubbers are suitable for chopping. You need to figure out the rubber that best suits your playing style.

Here are 3 rubbers that I would love to recommend for defensive players.

DHS Cloud & Fog III


  • Hardness: 5.2 (Medium)
  • Speed: 6.6
  • Spin: 5.5
  • Control: 7.1
  • Weight: 2.9

This Cloud & Fog III rubber featured with soft, long, and thin. So it is not sensitive to rotation. The reverse rotation effect is good, and the change of the carryover is obvious.

Especially when performing chopping, the reverse rotation is very strong. The rubber is very durable. Although the price is higher compared to other rubbers, the quality is guaranteed.

Dawei 388D-1


  • Hardness: 3.4 (Medium)
  • Speed: 6.0
  • Spin: 5.5
  • Control: 8.5
  • Weight: 2.3

From the features, we can know that this is an extreme rubber. It is the softest among all the long pimple rubbers. It is very easy for you to do a backspin, and it is easy to score due to the strong sense of sinking.

755-2 from Friendship 729


  • Hardness: 1.6 (Medium Soft)
  • Speed: 4.8
  • Spin: 4.4
  • Control: 8.6
  • Weight: 2.0

It is a long pimples rubber of 729. It has the characteristics of pimples out. The pip density is low, the pip’s size is smaller, and the pip hardness is much softer.

This rubber is very insensitive to rotation, and it is easier to deal with the arc. The trajectory is short, and the defensive effect is excellent.

So for the chopper, the 755-2 may be significant. Simultaneously, because the height of the pip is considered short among long pimples rubbers, it is easier to be used to attack than other long pimples rubbers.
