The Nittaku S-Series S-5 is the perfect combination of German
Craftmanship and European Spruce wood. This is a classical 5 ply blade
that has opted to use Spruce wood instead of African wood. Spruce trees
are famed for their use in musical instruments and these same qualites
make the wood perfect for table tennis blades. With the S-Series,
Nittaku introduces an affordable blade that is made from the highest
quality wood. The S-5 is a midweight offensive blade. A laser mark seal
protects the beauty of the Black Cherry wood handle. Made in Germany.
