We believe that CPEN is not only a handle type but a style of playing and thinking of table tennis. We made Martin OFF Pro CPEN on the bases of regular Martin OFF Pro but with different head shape. We redesigned the shape to be more angular for the real Chinese penholder biometry.
This blade is designed to meet the requirements of Martin Palatinus our Junior Champion 2010. This blade is also put into our Pro category remarking the performance and the fact it also needs skilled players to exploite all the blade’s features.
OSP Martin is a result of not only 12 year playing experience with handmade blades but also evolving a succesful offensive playing strategy. We created the final version with collaborating a couple of european pro players who demanded 7ply agressive blade with fine Limba feeling to rule all kind of offensive stroke and overpower incoming effects.
We added some more spin to Musko OFF Pro and due to the different layer construction with Limba surface we achieved a bit more sensitive working at short game as well as serving and returning without losing speed or stiffness. As a result we have an offensive blade with expanded playing distance. Although OSP Martin plays its best from mid distance you do not have to bother about being forced to closer or further. This blade also cooperates well with offensive short pips as the latest test says. Results offensive dead ball effect.
