Another question concerns the Stiga Pro Carbon. It seems this racquet is among the best ping pong paddle for intermediate players of much interest.
Let me compare STIGA Pro Carbon and STIGA RAPTOR
|STIGA Pro Carbon||STIGA Raptor|
|Blade||5 wood layers + 2 carbon layers||5 wood layers + 2 carbon layers|
|Rubber||STIGA S5||STIGA S5|
|Sponge||2.0 mm||2.0 mm|
|Weight||204 grams||544 grams|

It is difficult to compare 2 table tennis racquets with equivalent specifications.
Both of these blades have 2 layers of carbon, so beginners should not use them.
Skip the aftermarket benefits, if you have a workout partner with you. Whoever wins regularly, one should use the Stiga Raptor, the other should use the STIGA Carbon.
That’s because the Stiga Raptor is a bit heavier than the STIGA Carbon. The weight of the heavier racquet will make your control better.
