I'm Only Happy When it Reigns says:

*Hello guys. The BEST way to choose equips is to buy the most expensive setup out there and if it does not suit your level, buy the 2nd most expensive gear. Work your way down until you find the best setup.*

hey _voidz_
friendship 729 fx is a cheap and out of the age rubber. it’s out of the 70’s or 80’s. Nevertheless the top sheet (rubber) is of good and long lasting quality, especially if your playing outside. For learning it is not good, because of the sponge.
You can get now 729 fx lightning oder super soft, with a lot better sponge to practice the technics. in your case I would recommend the lightning with a thicker sponge, that you used with the regular or old fx, which aren’t much more expensive.

Roy Judge says:

super videos guys; I’ve just back into the sport after 30 years absence and using my 60 year old bats! I’m looking to buy a new bat and have taken note of your advice. However, in passing, i noticed Alois serving seemingly illegally. He seems to throw the ball up and back into his bat and wondering how he gets away with it???? Roy

horst hartmut says:

for all of those starting to begin playing table tennis. one of the most important things is, that you find a bat that suits you right. that means a bat with a handle that fits to your hands and technics. small hands small handle, large hands thicker handle, and whether straight, konkav or anatomic the one that suits you right ! : )


Hello guys, I am playing now for almost a year with a DHS 6002 and is time for a new paddle, a new level: I just bought the Killerspin JET800 SPEED N1 Table Tennis Paddle for almost $100 and after watching this and other videos I am not so sure about it.

Hi Guys! In a video from EmratThitch, I’ve heard that in chinese tt philosophy, the most important part of a bat is the wood (80%), then come the rubbers (20%).
