STIGA Sense 7.6 Blade Review

In the classic table tennis blades, as you know Butterfly brand is well-known and widely recognized by table tennis players. Another brand that has a similar reputation is Stiga.

If we treat the Butterfly double-layered carbon blade as a comprehensive symbol, then the Stiga Carbon is synonymous with the offensive.

It is a bit pity that many times Stiga tends to appear in the market as the blades that only cater to amateurs. The lack of control always makes Stiga fail to reach the peak. By releasing Sense 7.6, it has started getting recognition from table tennis players.

Construction of the Blade

The special structure of 7-layer wood + 6-layer carbon of the blade has abandoned the traditional carbon that can affect the feel of the hand when gripping the blade.

The Stiga Sense 7.6 is made of pure wood. It makes the blade faster, stronger, and more powerful.

While maintaining overall spin and speed, and not reducing the feel due to the increase in the number of plies, it is a good choice for a fast attack combined with arc play.

The first feeling of using this blade is that it has speed. The combination of the loop and drive is perfect, and the rotation is also sufficient.

Some players with fast arcs like to do a power shot when the ball is high. This blade is beyond the stability of the normal pure wood board and the quality of the hitting ball is revealed at this time. The blade is thin and hard. It is a glorious genetic of Stiga blade.

My Experience with the Blade

I just bought a brand new Stiga Sense 7.6 blade. The blade is the same way as Carbo 7.6. It has become popular lately and many players are changing their blades to this one. According to Stiga, this blade is used mostly in the Asian market.

The blade is constructed with a special high-quality outer veneer that has gone through a lengthy drying process. It is made from a very stiff wood and provides excessive bounce of the ball. I am delighted with the stiff woods that provide me with a good catapult.

When the ball is coming to contact with the blade, you may feel some vibration of the wood. Nevertheless, it is by no means a mediocre wood or insensitive to the blade. In contrast, I would think the blade is very powerful and it can offer the player fast speed. Besides, it is very controllable and spinny as well.

Playing topspin can be a slow pace and flat trajectory. If you perform a blocking, you can have very good control to play and to place above all. For those who want to play the game a little slow and with more control, this is the ideal blade for you.

I can play precisely with the blade and I would recommend this Stiga Sense 7.6 for the offensive player. The opponents will need to try to make the first ball and be one step ahead with a powerful offensive to score the point.

Sense 7.6 vs Carbo 7.6

This blade is a revision of the Carbo 7.6. It becomes less violent, softer, not so hard, slightly vibrating, and adds a sense of control.

The big difference between Sense 7.6 and Carbo 7.6 is that the outside veneer is harder on the Sense 7.6. The outside veneer has gone through a very long drying process that makes the blade harder and even loses some weight.

The Sense 7.6 like I said as is like Carbo 7.6 which is built with 7 layers of wood and 6 layers of carbon. Therefore, this blade is of premium quality which is well suited for powerful and professional ping pong players to assist them to perform winning strokes in the game.

It is a very good blade, and it is crisp when hitting the ball. The blade is suitable for players who love to play offensively. The blade is hard and thin. The performance of the arc is much better than Carbo 7.6. I think Carbon 7.6 is more suitable for pip sponge, and Sense is more suitable for some arcs.

Features:

  • Speed: 122
  • Control: 60
  • Veneer: 7+6
  • Elasticity: Stiff
  • Stiffness: 8.5
  • Type: Offensive
  • Thickness: 6.4mm
  • Weight: 87g

Even though there are 3 types of Stiga Sense 7.6 blades released to the market, which are Winner, Master, and Legend. I don’t see any difference between them. The price of these 3 blades also is the same. If anyone knows the difference, you are welcome to comment and share it with us.

Conclusion

The combination of Stiga Sense 7.6 attacking power and feel is good. The main premise is in the fiber. Structurally, Stiga uses carbon powder technology and not a traditionally mixed carbon to build this blade.

As we know that the carbon powder is lighter than the ordinary fiber, but the control of the fiber blade is just not as good as a pure wood blade.

Here is a wonderful explanation from a coach at my place. He said that each blade has a triangular balance point. That is, if the score of speed is high for a blade, then the spin and control will have lower scores; if the score of control and spin is high, then the score for speed is lower, etc.

This indicates, no perfect blade exists in this world. For Stiga, the spin performance is the area that the blade needs to focus on improving.

This is my overall feeling about Sense 7.6. I may be right and maybe wrong. Well, actually it doesn’t matter. The best way is for you to grab a blade and try it out yourself. And the real feel you get is the most real one.
