I play with an old version with black gold sign. It's a great blade with hard rubbers. It's only wood blade but the feeling is the same with the ALC carbon feeling. Very but very good blocking against topsin. Good control of the game. The feeling is power and control. Maybe this is possible because the blade is old, my feeling is rating this blade to off-. I am very excited in the rallys, this blade makes me very confident. I paired the blade with Tenergy 05 red backhand, and DHS Gold Arc black on forehand. All shots are easily to make. Strongly recomanded old Grubba versions. My Viscaria is history. Grubba makes me more confident. Gives me more and better posibilities to develope the game. In the better way. Find your Grubba and you wiil be a winner.

Old big Grubba ALL + .Online dedicated to our Polish table tennis legend. There are several versions of this blade. The best known is the old black sign. Great for learning the game. Mistakes.In today's fast tennis unfortunately too slow.
It is best played with hard rubbers

This blade has alot of vibration but in a good way. As advertised a do everything blade for allrounders. Lacks real power away from table but that's not what this blade is about. Great for a controled offense close to mid distance from table. A good blade in the ALL+ class but has a cheap look to the handle design. This blade is faster than a ALL class blade it is ALL+. Pair it with Tenergys and you will have high speed, outstanding spin and superior ball feel. Perfect for just about everyone. A solid 9 overall. Update: New handle designed for 2015. Much better look and slightly thicker feel. Not fast enough?...I suggest Bryce Speed or wait for the new Bryce High Speed. Players who complain about lack of speed usually have poor technique. Update: The new handle design has a better look. This blade has a wide spectrum of possibilities. Can be a defensive blade with thin defensive rubbers, can be an allround blade for control minded players or it can be an offensive blade with fast tensor rubbers. Try a harder sponge tensor and you have fast speed with a lot of spin due to the longer dwell. Tried it with Nittaku Renanos Hold Max...looping was insane with nice speed. Butterfly's " Do All Blade".

This is one of those funny blades. A diamond in the rough, if you will. I prefer it over my Timo Boll ZLF at 1/4 the price. I did some direct back to back comparisons with Grubba, TB ZLF and Viscaria (all with Tenergy 05) in the fields of touch(net play), hitting/counterhitting, service, looping, driving and smash. The Grubba led the way in all tests but counter hitting and driving. This is what makes it a funny little blade. In touch shots, I could easily get double, even triple bounce drops off of the opponents serve. Yet in counter hitting, the ball would rocket off the table somewhat uncontrollably, even faster than Viscaria. Looping, the Grubba had more spin, higher arc and more control than the other 2 blades and better feeling. I would use this blade 100% of the time if I could find a rubber to calm down the counter hitting and still yield good loop results. Otherwise, this blade fits my offensive loop oriented game perfectly.
I rated the blade at a speed of 8 due to the lack of control on counter hitting using Tenergy 05. Gave control an 8 also, which would've been 9.2 had there been no hitting issue.

It's not that slow as rated by now, it's all+ close to off-. Amazing control and feeling, very spinny. Recommended!
