The Midi Blade is a great blade that has a lot of uses for table tennis players, as well as table tennis fans. This novelty midi blade is great for collecting your "favorite players" autographs at competitions. Because the basswood has soft texture, the ink used to sign an autograph will not swear and will be preserved. Both of the sides will accommodate all the autographs of the Pros that you can get access to. When you aren't using the Midi Blade for autographs, it is a great blade to use to challenge your less skilled friend in a friendly, or competitive game of table tennis. The Midi will give your friends a chance to beat you, because this smaller racket means that you will have less area to hit the ball. So, give your friends a chance to beat without having to use your regular racket. Another way to enjoy this racket is to play on a mini table. This reduces the seriousness of table tennis with having a mini racket, and makes it more enjoyable and playful. The Midi racket has a dimension of 8 ½ x 5 in, which puts it right in the perfect range of a smaller racket. And because the basewood is lightweight, the over all lightweight feel of the blade will give a high level of comfort.
