Hi Andrew,

We recommend using the PingSkills Rook which has ITTF approved Lion 5 star rubbers on it. There are lots of other choices out there though. The main thing is that the rubber isn't to fast. You need to be able to hit the ball on the table to develop your strokes and consistency. If you use a really fast rubber to begin with, you won't be able to control the ball properly and you'll start to shorten your stroke rather than using the correct full swing.
