Hi Coach!

 I'm getting a table tennis bat for my birthday and I wondering what brand, type and model I should get.

I've just switched from Shakehand to Penhold.                      

I'm 13.

I'm not small, neither am I tall.

I LOVE spinning the ball,

and I'm not a quick player, I like control.

Money is not an issue.

It's my 2nd bat.

Have you got any ideas for me, coach? Or can you give me a a sponge thickness that suits me.

Plus, does the penhold handle give you any advantages when your playing penhold?

Thanks, Coach.

Hi Josh,

The penhold handle is a matter of comfort.  I don't have any recommendations for a penhold racket.  I will leave that up to the penhold players out there.

If you like spinning the ball you should use a rubber with around 2mm thickness.  Probably a Mark V or Yasaka Pryde.
