The Tibhar Samsonov Force Pro Table Tennis blade is a favourite with Bribar’s Sponsored players!
The original blade of multiple European champion and World Cup winner Vladimir Samsonov, has a relatively stiff medium hard feel and is designed for mid-distance counter and loop play.
As well as speed in mid-distance rallies, our sponsored players also enjoy the ability to ‘Counter loop’ off the bounce with confidence and play tight touch shots at the net.
The Force Pro has a 7 ply wood build, with the outer Limba ply’s giving a ‘catapult effect’ to add speed to attacking shots – putting your opponent under pressure!
Speed 91. Control 75. Weight 85g. Handle – Fl & St.
The Force Pro is the current choice of Bribar/TIBHAR sponsored players David McBeath, Emma Vickers and Emily Bolton – a sure sign of quality!
Phil Thomas, Sales, Technical & Logistics Team explains in more detail why it’s his pick… ‘The Force Pro falls into quite a unique category, it is ideal for players who find a carbon blade too fast and who want to stay within the parameters of an all wood blade but also it is ideal for players who find carbon blades to ‘springy’ but don’t want to lose too much speed. The Force Pro ticks both these boxes! My favourite aspect of this fast blade is being able to ‘counter loop’ off the bounce and retain good feeling close to the net’…
