Hello Alois,

I am a new, trending into an intermediate player and I have been playing with a Killerspin Jet 400 for close to a year.  I like the bat but I have trouble getting enough spin on my forehand loops to get them to land. I like the control but feel it lacks spin.  I was looking at one of the Ping Skills bats as a possible upgrade. Not being around the sport much and unable to try different setups I was hoping for a little pro advice.  Also, I have a 9 year old boy who plays as well so any advice on a setup for him would be appreciated.  He is a beginner but is better than most adults who come play with us.

Hi Matt,

You could probably go for the Touch with Rakza 7 for yourself and the Touch with Mark V for your son.  If you think that he may struggle with the Mark V you cold go for the Rook to start with.  If he has been playing for a year and had the basic strokes right, then the Mark V should be OK.
