You don't need a racket to kiss some ass. I have all confidence in you that you can do so very well without these paddles.

Hi all, sorry for not jumping on table tennis thread sooner!! I'll try and answer as much as I can.

My background: played collegiate table tennis, co-founded the university intramural club, trained with 3 national USA coaches, and played in sanctioned (official) pong tournaments for 13+ years. (I still think I suck though, for the record)



Absolutely correct. Anytime a pong paddle comes pre-assembled and include balls are considered pure beginner level equipment or even maybe a tier lower, comparable to equipment you would find laying around at the office ping pong table.

No decent player would EVER play with those crap balls. Get 3 star DHS or Nittaku balls

(make sure they are poly material, celluloid balls are discontinued and no longer 'legal' by tournament standards)



If you desire to just kick the ass of your friends or office workers, this Killerspin set is fine for that purpose (assuming you completely suck at pong).

If you desire to play in tournaments (and strive to get better), GET A COACH WHO CAN TEACH YOU THE BASICS. Equipment means nothing without the foundation of proper mechanics.

With that said, the mainstream TT brands (most common in tournaments) are Butterfly, Donic, Stiga, Joola, Yasaka, DHS.

A little less mainstream but still popular is Killerspin, Andro, Juic, Dr. Neubauer, Xiom.

I highly recommending starting with any of the brands I listed and getting their pre-assembled paddles, range is usually $25-$75.

Examples:
http://www.paddlepalace.com/Pre-A...oducts/13/
https://www.zeropong.com/assemble...iag6ckju00

Once you get better, consider moving up to purchasing the blade (paddle with no rubbers attached), and the two rubbers separately. This is the way ALL intermediate and above players buy their equipment.

Pong retailers will assemble it for you a small charge usually.



No. The Killerspin set is pre-assembled paddles. The assembly charge for $106 is for a pong table I think, which makes no sense to me.



Butterfly is a great brand but they have been jacking their prices in recent years and players are starting to consider different options now.

Their most popular rubber, Tenergy, used to be $40-50 back in the day and now its $75. Consider that some players go through 5-10 rubbers a year...



A decent table should have a 1 inch top. Anything less makes for a worse playing "bounce" for the pong ball.



Good luck sir. If its your first tournament ever, you will have an eye-opening experience haha.



I generally agree with this sentiment but its not common to see a pre-assembled carbon or 7 ply paddle, those are sold as higher end paddles, not pre-assembled.



Um tournament level gear usually ranges from $80-$300. It's like golf gear... its expensive but if you have the skill to effectively use the equipment, its a night and day difference.

$17 is nothing and this set is only geared towards basement/office/pure beginners.



Hope this helps. Feel free to ask any questions!

Thanks op. However 130 bucks for expert assembly kills the deal.

These paddles are good for beginners. I would not recommend them for medium skill level or advanced players.

Why? Is the rubber poor quality?
