A classic blade that I bought as my very first blade. It is soft and offers great control, but unfortunately was slightly too slow for me and left me wishing I'd gone for the offensive classic. This blade is great for a defensive minded player who buys rubbers around the 1.5 range, or someone who relies totally on blocking with fast rubbers I could see it working. Still though, the build quality was great and it looks good, and with the legend flared handle it feels great in the hand.
It just lacks the ability to finish a ball by blasting it past your opponent. Still though, I rate this blade highly despite it not being for me.

Flexible, soft, lots of vibrations. Does most things well at a controlled pace. Seems to play better with medium hardness rubbers, as softer rubbers seem to produce more erratic shots on this blade. Paired with the right rubber, you can smash or loopkill through quite a range of ability levels. A decent value, although Stiga's blades are always very rough and unfinished... they require some sanding and sealing to remove the rough edges and prevent splintering from replacing rubbers.

The stiga allround classic wrb is a 5 ply blade which weighs about 75-80 gams which is relatively light, it is a very good blade for allrounders as the name already says, it offers an outstanding control , It is a blade that will suit a beginner and also an intermediatete player, It has nice to very good spin opportunities and is flexible enough, it might vibrate to much for some people though. But the touch you have with this blade is outstanding,
If you are an attacker our powerlooper then this is nothing for you but for defensive and allround players it is a very nice blade

Stiga Allround Classic is a great blade for pretty much any player that is in the beginner to advanced-intermediate level. It is really fast, and the wood is pretty soft and light, so you have really good feel and control. It is great for solidifying your strokes. Additionally, its rather thin tot, so it feels very nice. The best thing is that its only twenty some dollars. This blade is definitely one of the best blades out there for its low price. I suggest to use it if you are looking for a cheap blade. It helped me get my strokes down and my feeling in the hand a lot. Just play with it and it will help you get a great feel for the ball!
