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.
