Stiga Energy Wood WRB Energy - a unique combination of veneer and the special drying process to create a light and fast blade.
Energy Wood is constructed via a special wood drying process that Stiga uses to create a very light blade that offers a perfect mix between speed and control.
This combination creates optimum feel that all players desire. The Stiga WRB Energy is the same as the Stiga Energy but it has the hollow-handle feature of the WRB handle, which enhances the balance of the blade and lightens it. WRB: W=Weight balance. The balance of the blade is scientifically moved to the point contact is made with the ball. R=Rate of recovery. Due to the decrease in blade weight the player improves his rate of recovery after each stroke. B=Ball sensitivity. The scientifically positioned recess in the handle provides extra sensitivity of touch.

Thinking of choosing a Stiga blade? Stiga is considered one of the best blade manufacturers on the planet. Their blades are manufactured in Sweden with precision and care and are reasonably priced.
Stiga incorporates many different technologies into its blades and offers different options when it comes to choosing a blade. Some common ones are:
WRB - WRB is a hollowed out oval near the base of the blade handle that has a hard and light plastic insert. Its purpose is to ever so slightly shift the center of inflection of the blade forward while also giving slightly more vibration and feel.
CR – CR is a hard veneer applied to the blade surface to increase its speed.
Tube – Tube is a middle veneer inserted into the blade with micro channels of carbon. Its purpose is to increase blade rigidity and speed.
Blade Handles: Stiga offers several types of blade handles for its Shakehand blades, including
Conic: A flattened cone shaped handle that widens at the handle base.
Anatomic: A handle that widens in the middle.
Straight: A handle that same thickness throughout.
Flared: A flare handle that is narrower in the middle.
Stiga is the only manufacturer that offers consumers a choice within the Flared Handle Category. The choice of:
Flared Master "FL-MSTR" (the same thickness as a traditional flared handle style);
Flared Legend FL-Lgnd (a slightly thicker handle).
