1.Butterfly Primorac Offensive Blade

Best table tennis blades under 100 butterfly primorac blade

CHECK THE CURRENT PRICE!

One of the best-selling Butterfly blades made of wood without carbon or additional materials.

It is highly versatile and supports all styles of play, from defensive style to attacking. You will achieve this depending on the rubbers you choose for your table tennis racket.

In any case, it is suitable and recommended for loopers. Primorac blade has great ball control and ideal weight. It’s not too light to take stronger punches, and it’s not too heavy to be able to make turns and reactions to changes in the game’s rhythm.

When it comes to service and pimpling, you can do very well cut balls and do short services. It’s a little harder to report counter spins from the table or faster attacks on the first ball. However, with rotating balls or blocks with precise ball orientation, Primorac proved to be suitable.

Control is in the foreground, but you have a certain level of speed at the same time. We recommend softer rubbers with max thickness for players who play with rotating balls.

Firstly, Butterfly’s blades are generally made to the highest quality standards for competitions and top players. Longevity and durability are out of the question.

Secondly, this version is produced in Japan and Europe. The first is a little harder and the second softer, but the durability is certainly significant in both cases.

Thirdly, a balance between control and speed has been achieved, so knowing that 80% of the control comes from the blade and 20% from the rubbers is very important when choosing.

Fourthly and most importantly, if you are a mid-level player in terms of speed, you will significantly improve your game by purchasing the Butterfly Primorac blade.

2.Stiga Allround Classic Carbon Blade

Best table tennis blades under 100 Stiga allround classic carbon blade

CHECK THE CURRENT PRICE!

Very elastic table tennis blade for playing close to the table and keeping as many balls on the table as possible.

For children and beginners, the perfect blade is combined with softer rubbers. The main reason why the Stiga Allround Classic Carbon is in second place on our list of the 7 best table tennis blades under $ 100 is that it is intended for a wide range of players.

Two layers of carbon result in you having extra stability in attacking play and great control in passive style. The design is as classic as Stiga can do, but the stiffness and hardness are average. However, it is compatible with players who do not often train as professionals.

This will transition the game to the next better level for table tennis players accustomed to Allround blades.

Therefore, Stiga has upgraded the version with 2 layers of carbon, which affects the game by at least 30% for the better. This is most noticeable when you play short balls and make a block on the opponent’s topspin.

All in all, great feeling, small vibrations, perfect looping are the main characteristics that separate this blade from the others. For example, let’s say you’re a beginner or recreational player who knows many moves in table tennis but can’t apply them effectively in a match.

Then the Stiga Allround blade affects the accuracy, control, and better guessing of a specific point on the table. This, of course, will happen after a few workouts when you get used to the blade.

However, it is not for aggressive and faster players who are ready for top competitions. On the other hand, it is excellent for spin and chop, which will suit those who have such a style of play.

 

3.Joola Xylo 7 All Wood Blade

Best table tennis blades under 100 Joola Xylo 7 blade

Our favorite table tennis blade for several reasons.

Firstly, it uses a Limba top layer that enhances the topspin game and gives tremendous ball speed. Since there are a total of 7 layers, you get the speed and, at the same time, superb control of the ball.

Secondly, all the inner layers consist of a softer Ayous that provides a sense of security and precision when returning slower balls to the table. The wing part of each side of the handle is polished, which gives it a better grip and balance.

What matters to all table tennis players is that Joola made the blade handle in all options. Second, this is the best choice from Joola in the category of table tennis blades under $ 100.

Generally, 7-layer blades are intended for offensive players, but we should point out the technology used and what makes Xylo 7 special.

It is a technology that has been perfected for 10 years in the Joola company, and now they have produced a precisely constructed model, and the handle is smooth and fits every handle. It’s a little thicker blade than the Xylo 5, but that gives it an advantage in the power of topspins and finishing strokes at the table.

All in all, we recommend fast table tennis rubbers to combine with this blade for professional players who train 5 to 6 times a week.

On the other hand, you can take softer rubbers but max thicker if you are a player who plays for fun or several times a week.

Best table tennis blades under 100 Donic Ovtcharov senso blade

CHECK THE CURRENT PRICE!

The most popular table tennis blade among Europeans.

In our opinion the best choice of price and quality from the top 7. The technology consists of 8 layers of which are the basis of the previously mentioned Ayous and others like Carbon, Anegre, and Limba. The blade chewed with special layers of elasticity and sweet spot.

Donic made it after the top world player Dimitrij Ovtcharov, for whom the precision of returning the balls is a priority. High speed when playing offensively and reasonable ball control when you are passive makes this blade one of the best in the world.

Ovtcharov won one silver and three bronze medals at the Olympic Games from 2008 to 2016. He is currently 12th in the world rankings, updated in February this year.

By the way, Donic Ovtcharov’s Senso Carbon blade is quite challenging and is recommended to top players who are primarily focused on attack and fast balls from near the table.

Firstly, what makes this excellent blade special is the double core made of two different layers. This means that it is glued at high temperatures and under high pressure. Because of that, Donic Ovtharov Senso Carbon V1 has a large sweet spot, and thus you get in control of returning the ball.

Secondly, the contact with the ball is very short, which is why this blade is not for players with high topspins. We recommend it more for attackers who play with fast balls and short blocks from near the table.

Moreover, the precision is perfect, as Dimitrij Ovtcharov once said:

“This blade was a huge help to me on my way to the world’s elite. Donic’s know-how and the Swedish blade technicians have created a blade precisely to suit my game.”

6.Butterfly Petr Korbel All-Wood Blade

Best table tennis blades under 100 Butterfly Petr Korbel all wood blade

CHECK THE CURRENT PRICE!

If you want to speed up your game, this blade will definitely help.

It is produced in factories in Europe and Japan, so it comes in two variants. We recommend it to players who play from a medium distance from the table tennis table and above all, to those who prefer topspins.

Also, rubbers that are adequate for this blade are harder and thicker to improve attack and aggression in the game. It is very solid and requires a few workouts to get used to.

However, if we compare him with Primorac or Grubba blade, then Petr Korbel is, in any case, faster and more efficient with many moves in the game. It is an absolute pleasure for loopers to play with this blade because it provides exceptional ball rotations and, at the same time, absorbs the ball enough if you are not in such a great training process.

From the world-renowned company Butterfly, one of the most popular table tennis blades.

Firstly, it suits all types of players except beginners due to their adaptability on the ball both during an attack and blocks. However, you can choose two handle styles, straight or flared.

Secondly, with adequate rubbers, you can achieve very good and precise balls all over the table. You can also perform pimpling and service with high speed or a short cutting ball. This is because the blade is not too fast for the ball to escape longer than the table, but it is certainly fast enough if you decide to attack with topspins.

One of the best Penhold blades in our selection of top 7 table tennis blades under $ 100.

Players who want an increased feeling of the ball and use the Penhold style of play will surely appreciate this beautiful blade from Yasaka. It has a thicker medium veneer that gives strength and quality to the wood.

On the other hand, softer outer veneer affects game control. For all moves in the game, forehand spin, backhand spin, pimples, blocks the ball. It is not too heavy, and the middle part that contains carbon is suitable for controlling the ball just enough not to lose speed.

Otherwise, very thin special carbon fibers are used. We recommend rubbers like Yasaka Rakza Soft or Butterfly Tenergy 05 FX because of their softness so that you will have the perfect combination of speed and control.

FAQ of the table tennis blades under $ 100

1.How do I choose the handle that suits me best?

Choose the handle you have played with so far, or if you are the type of player who often changes sides from forehand to backhand, then the Straight handle is the best.

If you are playing 70% forehand, then it is best to take the Flared handle. If you have a bigger handful, choose the Anatomic handle because you will adjust better, and it will not slip out of your hand.

Penhold is a short handle for players who play from the table and attack quickly with the style most commonly used in China and Japan.

2.Which type of table tennis blades under 100 suits me best?

There are three most important categories of blades to choose from. The most important thing is to know what type of player you are, and we will help you choose adequately.

1.The Defensive blade is for players who pimp more and wait for the opponent’s mistake. Usually, such blades are slow and heavier than others.

2.Beginners and players who combine attack and defense intending to transfer as many balls as possible to the table. Such types of players should choose Allround blades.

3.The third type of table tennis blade is the most popular, and these are the Offensive blades. They are very fast, and their weight varies depending on the material.
