Nittaku Violin LG (Large Handle)

Add To Cart
Number of Layers : 5
approximate weight (g) : 85
Blade Type : OFF
thickness (mm) : 5.3
The Nittaku Violin was made using the same principles used in making string instruments. In the instrument blade series, this blade is the lightest and has the smallest head size while also being the thinnest. Despite having a harder feeling than the Nittaku Acoustic, the Violin is slightly slower and has more control. Made in Japan. This version comes with a slightly wider handle. Because of this it could be recommended for players who find the standard handle size is too thin. Made in Japan.

03/02/2022 great blade Review by Silvia Marchesi
Very good blade. Feeling the ball. Forgives the mistakes.
19/01/2022 Would recommend Review by Haavard Salamonsen
Handle size seems like a normal blade. Perfect blade for intermediate player building a good technique.
29/08/2021 Super Review by Vadim
Big delay + hard outer white ash wood - gives you enormous spin potential! I use it with Sieger PK50 right - the perfect combo for me. 3rd ball power attack is very difficult for your opponents, with a good variety of spins and good control for all-round play, you can even chop with it!
Also, Violin has a big sweet spot comparing to other all wood blades. Speed - lower end "off".
21/04/2020 Best all wood blade Review by Mark
Handle not as big as I expected. Actually it's just a bit bigger than normal Violin.
21/01/2020 Fantastic blade Review by FABIO PERCHINENNA
A beautiful blade that gives you everything you need also speed when combined with an offensive rubber. Excellent Tabletennis11 service. Thank you!
16/07/2019 Great blade Review by Milo Sassi
This blade is definitely the best I've tried so far.
If you are looking for a blade that excels in control, rather than speed, I suggest you try it.... very forgiving.
10/02/2019 Very unique blade Review by Antal Istvan
If you want a moderately fast offensive blade with good feeling, this is the perfect choice. The quality of the build is simply perfect. The white ash outer plies are beautiful and special. I don't have big hands, but this large handle version is very comfortable for me. So, if your hand size is average, I can offer this version. It's a flexible and thin blade that's good for looping, but the feeling is hard and solid. The speed is in the OFF- range, but the control is very high. I use Haifu BW on FH, and Xiom Vega Asia on BH. I'm very satisfied with this blade.
31/10/2018 Excellent Review by Chris
Love this blade. Nice handle. Nice weight. Feels right. Easy to maneuver. Great feeling. Pairs really well with a fast spinny rubber.
16/10/2018 No need for Carbon Review by Smash_Fan (MyTT)
Decided to try this out because of its excellent reputation. Did not disappoint.
Tabletennis11 was a breeze to deal with and even sent me the list of weights for each blade they had in stock. Received blade in 3-days shipping in USA at no cost. Second time I've ordered from TT11 and really impressed with this company.

My Violin is 88grams (I typically prefer weight around 80g), and plays like no other wood blade I've ever tried. Handle thickness is awesome and finally I feel comfortable. Balance of blade is perfect, even with the higher weight.

No need for carbon unless you're a top level mid-distance player with this blade. It's all about precision, spin, and feel. Flips on FH and BH banana go over with ease and placement.

Blade has gears as you increase power but there is a limit. This is not a fast blade, maybe All+ to Off-. But paired with Tenergy 05 powerful + high throw rubber it is the best combination for attacking close to table I've used. Craftsmanship and quality equals best I've seen and possibly even a notch above Butterfly.
3-months in, I know that I will be using this for very long time with enjoyment.
20/06/2018 Отличное основание Review by Igor Kossov
Фирма Nittaku порадовала теннисистов со всего мира выпуском этого легендарного основания с ручкой увеличенного размера. Ранее Violin выпускался с тонкой ручкой FL толщиной 22 мм,не очень удобной многим игрокам. В остальном его характеристики не изменились. Скорость на границе OFF/OFF-, исключительное чувство мяча и великолепный контроль. Ко всему прочему, на нем играют почти все накладки, как жёсткие так и мягкие. Violin отлично подходит и для игры шипами, как длинными, так и короткими. Стоит так же отметить изумительное качество изготовления этого основания.

13/07/2014 5 Review by Oleg AVERIN
It's one of the best blade for playing with spin and allround playing.
22/04/2014 Finest all wood blade Review by NS
Having used it personally for 1.5 years i would put my views based on the standard parameters people look for :

Feel : Awesome , very different than usual all wood blades.
Control : Great on loops as well as drives --> point and shoot with dwell time (one needs to get used to dwell if they coming from a faster / composite blade )
Spin : Great rotation on the balls as well as spin on serves.
Speed : More than average of all wood blade ; Smashing is great feeling.

To summarize , this is a blade with unique characteristics for an all round aggressive player. It really excels at the table ; few feet back one should be using ones strength to maximize the effect of play using this blade.

For collector :
The outer layer of this blade is white ash and the finish looks so good that i didn't even feel like gluing my rubber on it.
21/02/2014 Good blade, Great Service Review by Kris
The quality of this blade is undisputed. Excellent finish, and the L handle is very comfortable. (Nittaku should make their reg FL handle like this!)

The performance of the blade is just ok. It should be labeled OFF-. If you are used to dynamic composite blades, or even the Acoustic, you might be disappointed with the Violin.

However, if you are curious about this blade, the low price and great service from table tennis 11 makes it worth it to try.

Great Blade
31/01/2014 great blade, great service Review by JasonWWW

three weeks to get the stuff. Great service.
19/12/2013 Very, very good blade Review by Nikolay Trukhin
Exellent touch, enough speed, very flexible!
05/12/2013 Great Feel and Control Review by Peter Effendy
I put H3 National blue sponge 40 deg 2.2 and Tenergy 64 2.1 on 93 gr Violin Large Handle, Total weight is 186 gr. It's very balanced set up.
Previously I use ZJK ALC with the same rubber.
Although Violin is slower than ZJK ALC, you can use your own strength to produce the powerful loops.
This blade is very good for looping and smashing, blocking is very good, control is very good. You can defend and attack with ease which I can't do so nicely with Composite blade.
I have been using Violin since 2006, I'm looking for heavier Violin large handle, the heaviest I found before is 88 gr, so 5 gr difference is huge.
Now it's my primary blade, Violin is a must try blade if you're looking for good feel and control blade, it's a recommended blade for a beginner to develop his own strength, not relying on the blade to get the power.
24/11/2013 Had to get a spare Review by arg0
Actually, I like this blade so much that I ordered a second one!
24/11/2013 Large ST handle is perfect for my hands Review by arg0
This blade is ALL+/OFF-, has a unique crisp feeling, an amazing control, and is just perfect for a spin-oriented, close-to-the-table game. It's also great for chopping, although I'd suggest Violoncello for a defensive game.
The blade itself is rather flexibile. It shines if paired with harder rubbers.
I had stopped playing with Violin because I could not get accustomed to the thin "normal" handles (ST and FL). Now this L-size ST handle is just the best ST handle I ever played with. Welcome back, Violin!
12/10/2013 Отличное основание Review by Andrey
Использую совместно с Tibhat Evolution EL-P & Palio blitz.
По моим ощущениям вот, что получилось:
Контроль 95 (потрясающий !)
Скорость 75 (средняя)
Вращение 85 (очень хорошо)
Ручка удобная (я перехватываю справа налево)
Баланс немного "в голову".
