The STIGA Carbonado 190 is constructed with Carbon layers in a 90 degree angle with flexural bendability, giving the blade a stiff feel with great stability and high speed.
For the new Carbonado blades, STIGA has taken carbon blade manufacturing to a new level by using a made in Sweden carbon technology known as TeXtreme®. The blades are built with five layers of wood and two layers of lightweight TeXtreme® Spread Tow Carbon fibers. This unique and patented carbon is the first of its kind and has never before been experienced in Table Tennis. The special TeXtreme® Spread Tow Carbon is flexible in only one direction, either flexural or torsional, making it possible in the manufacturing process to adjust and improve the ball trajectory and speed to accommodate playing style. The two layers of carbon are applied in a 45 degree angle or a 90 degree angle.
Carbonado 145 is constructed with Carbon layers in a 45 degree angle with torsional bendability which gives the blade more flexibility and increased stiffness. The high trajectory makes it a perfect choice for the offensive player who looks for good speed and stability combined with excellent control.
Carbonado 190 is constructed with Carbon layers in a 90 degree angle with flexural bendability, giving the blade a stiff feel with great stability and high speed. The longer and flatter trajectory makes it an excellent choice for players who want to dominate play with high speed strokes.
The Carbonado blades offer the player a personalized Sweet Spot. The Carbonado 145 with torsional bendability gives a wider Sweet Spot and the Carbonado 190 with flexural bendability gives a higher Sweet Spot. Experience the result of years of research and engineering. Experience the TeXtreme® Carbon feeling!
The difference is in the angles.

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).
