Making a table tennis blade is a craft. A skilled blade maker must be able to combine the various types of wood optimally, work the materials without losing the properties of the wood, ensure perfect accuracy in the tiniest details and possess a feel for wood.
Yasakas blades are produced in Sweden and they are the result of collaboration between professionals: the blade maker and most experienced players and coaches in the world.
All Yasaka blades are developed and produced in Sweden, by an experienced, highly motivated and quality conscious workforce, operating in facilities equipped with the latest wood processing machines.
There are basically two factors that determine the performance of a table tennis blade:
- The quality and playing characteristics of the plywood
- The design (shape, length, wideness) of the grip, and the shape of the blade (plywood).
