The "Rock Solid" is the big brother of "Loop'n'joy". They are very similar. Only change is that the rubbers have slightly harder sponges. This means that you need a bit more power in you shots to get the feeling of everything just doing what it's supposed to.

It is a combination of our Columbia blade and medium hard Vizion rubbers with 1.7 mm sponge. LC Power on the forehand and AR Accel on the backhand. The Columbia blade is a real allrounder in the best sense of the word: Easily controlled in the passive game, where it provides great ball contact an a rather "slow" feel. In the active game it feels very accurate and has stiffness enough to handle even the hardests shots.

The Vizion LC Power is a great rubber for making topspin shots, and can sustain even the hardest shots. It gives great power and stability, but you also need to have some power in your shots. But don't worry too much: The 1.7 version isn't that hard to handle. The Vizion AR Accel is very versatile - not quite as great in topspin play as the LC-versions of the Vizion series, but easier to play in almost every other aspect of the game. It also has a medium hard sponge which requires some power to get the most of.

The racket is for players who play a lot of topspin shots from the forehand, and play a controlled backhand using a wide range of shots.  

For beginners it is too hard to handle, but for table tennis players with good experience and some power, this could be the perfect solution.

When it is time to replace the rubbers, you don't have to change the whole racket. The old rubbers are easily removed, and since very few players will ever need a "stronger" blade than the Columbia, just changing the rubbers on the blade is often a good solution.

The Inzone "Rock Solid" comes with 3 different handles - read more about this in the "Choosing the right handle" section.

  • Blade: Inzone Columbia
  • Forehand rubber: Inzone Vizion LC Power 1.7
  • Backhand rubber: Inzone Vizion AR Accel 1.7

At beginner level you need a racket with good spin that is easy to control. When your level increases, you need a racket that supports the increased power in your game.

The ADVANCED racket is matched perfectly for young players with some or good experince with table tennis - and a good forehand topspin.

Watch the Inzone Team test the Advanced Racket:

At Inzone we have 6 different handle types, and choosing the right one isn't always easy. Not all handles are available for all blades and rackets - eg. Flame Series is made for children, while Safe Series are made for adults, and both are only made with the recommended handles.

Here is a little information about the different kinds of handles:

STRAIGHT. The straight handle is completely straight, almost squared and quite thick. It supports a firm grip and usually best fits in rather big hands. For children this is rarely a good solution.
STRAIGHT (SLIM). The slim version of the straight handle is more rounded and supports a more loose and flexible grip. It fits most hands, but for men with big hands it could be too small,  and for children up to around 12 years of age it could be too big.
FLARED. The flared handle supports a firm grip, and fits the hands of most adults.
FLARED (SLIM). The slim version of the flared handle fits most children from 10 to 14 years of age.
FLARED (XS). The XS version of the flared handle fits most children up to around 11 years of age.
ANATOMIC. The anatomic handle is mostly used by men with big hands as an alternative to the flared handle.

A table tennis racket consists of 1 blade and 2 rubbers (usually one red and one black). All Inzone rackets are assembled in our workshop i the Inzone Table Tennis Center in Aarhus. So when you buy an Inzone racket, it is ready to use at delivery.

It you decide to make your own combination of blade and rubbers, we can also assemble the racket for you. Just leave a note when you make the order. Racket assembly is free of charge.

You are of course also welcome to assemble the racket yourself, or to buy rubbers and blades to combine with equipment from other brands.

Anyway: All Inzone rackets are delivered fully assembled and ready to use, but if you order separate rubbers and blades, you need to tell us to assemble the racket - if that's what you want.

We use real table tennis glue, which means that the rubbers can easily be removed from the blade. This is a big advantage, since this makes it possible to change the rubbers on the racket. The life time of the blade is usually many years, while the rubbers will need to be replaced sooner. 

During your development as a player, your needs change as your level increases. This way you don't have to change the complete racket, but can upgrade the rubbers - this is usually quite a bit cheaper.
