Re-Impact Blades are slightly a-symmetric for balance and reduced wind resistance when swung. Thus they come in Right or Left handed versions.
Re-Impact Blades are custom manufactured individually with German Know-How and Precision. No production lines, just care and thought. The blades have some unique characteristics that make them different from other table tennis blades:
1. Light Weight
Re-Impact is owned by master craftsman, Achim Rendler. He and his brother built the company and have gained respect in Germany and world-wide for their quality craftsmanship.
A Re-Impact Blade is almost twice as thick as any other table tennis blade on the market. Most Re-Impact Blades have a high concentration of balsa, a light weight wood that is known in table tennis circles for its soft feel, and long drag time (enhanced spin). Combined with patented gluing process and a slightly asymmetric shape (to reduce air flow resistance), and these blades carry unique and favorable properties.
The Rendler Brothers have designed a line up of Impact Re Blades that fit a wide variety of styles, including possibly yours. Re-Impact blades revolve around for main variables.
1. Blade speed - Each Re-Impact Blade has a different blade speed for the forehand verses the backhand.
2. Drag Time - By varying the wood and ply thickness, the Rendler Brothers can produce blades with different ball "drag time". Long drag time, suits off the table play and longer strokes. Short drag time (high rebound), suits close to the table play.
3. Size: Re-Impact blade is offered in three sizes - Standard, Mid-Sized, Oversized. Standard size blade head is 152 cm high and 157 cm wide, Mid-Sized is 162 cm by 162 cm, Oversize is 166 by 162 cm.
Please note that these blades are highly customized and are primarily suited for experienced players seeking to elevate their game by finding a customized light weight racquet.
