About the Blade

The STIGA Talon is a racket for playing in tournaments. It has many features to help you win games. This racket has good ratings and features such as ITTF Approved Rubber, Shock Dispersion Tube, and Nano Composite Technology. The STIGA Talon is good for people who want to take their game to the next

The STIGA Talon has a blade that is made of wood and then the technology is built into it. When you hit the ball, there is less vibration and sound energy comes up to your hand which helps you control how fast you are going.

The handle of the racket is “Concave Pro” which is a better version of the original handle. It has more grip and it is modified for this reason.

About the Rubber

The ITTF Approved Rubber can help you play better because it has some special technology. ACS technology (introduced in the rubber) helps with high speed and control. The Nano Composite Technology makes the rubber better and it will be good for spin and speed. You can get more spin and speed with this technology.

Pros
  • The 2.0 mm premium rubbers refined by ACS and NCT give the ball high speed and spin
  • Balsa wood is very soft and flexible. This gives the player more control over the ball and makes it more fun to use.
  • The “concave pro handle” makes it easy to grip the paddle.
Cons
  • No carrying case is included to protect the rubber.

STIGA Evolution Performance-Level Table Tennis Racket Made with Approved Rubber for Tournament Play
  • Performance-Level Table Tennis Racket

  • Premium Rubber, 2mm Sponge, and 6-Ply Light Blade


The Blade

The Stiga Evolution features a 6-ply wooden blade that is lightweight, sturdy, and easy to use. The minimal weight makes it less tiring to hold for a long time. It also means you can use the paddle to place powerful shots.

The Handle is made using Shock Dispersion Tube technology that will help you shoot the ball better. It will collect your energy and it can help you be more powerful when you hit the ball.

The handle of the blade is light to hold because it is hollow inside. But there are some disadvantages–sometimes the blade can be heavy on top and cause you to lose your balance.

But I think the rubber on the racket is very special. The whole racket is really interesting because of that rubber.

The Rubber

The extra light blade is put in the rubber and it is ITTF approved to be eligible for worldwide tournaments. The amount of tiny air bubbles inside the rubber makes it strong and lessens the reverb effects after you fire shots.

A plus of this rubber is that it has a lot of speed and spin. It can help you play better in the game. But it is for people who have been playing for a long time, not beginners.

Pros
  • This paddle is good for defense. It does not have a lot of speed, but it has some power on the ball.
  • The 6-ply wood blade did have some power on the ball but not lots.
  • Good for money
Cons
  • We noticed that the edges of the table tennis racket were a little uncomfortable.

Conclusion

In our conclusion, both Stiga Evolution and Stiga Talon are good for beginners. If this is your first time buying a table tennis paddle, buy the Stiga Evolution, if not, you should buy the Stiga Talon.
