Hi Ian,

No we don't recommend robots at all.  The newer ones do have some good features.  I don't know enough about the individual robots to recommend any of them.

in india we have robos but i hate them cause they give us different spin which are oftenly not used in matches..

Brian, actually, it's worth 399! So I DO NOT think you would like that. And Rahul, go to www.Newgy.com to buy a robot. There are 5 to chose from. Thanks guys!

ALOIS, In an ideal world you would not need a Robot. In rural Canada there are very few players of Table Tennis. I remain unbeaten in a small town but cannot get to competitions etc. A Newgy 2050 robot has been my lifesaver and improved my game immensely. It can play at a higher level than most opponents and I can take a bag of balls and use its' net as a collector. I have had it for two years now and am finally entering a Provincial Championship having had only occasional a'real" games. I can understand you would not need to use them but you might reconsider not ever recommending them.  JD, Nelson BC Canada.

Hi John,

You are right.  I see they have a purpose.  I meant we don't recommend any particular robot.  In your situation they will have a purpose.

Like others, I use a robot because I can't find good people to play with as often as I need to practice. Robots can be good for working on strokes and footwork, but don't simulate a real game very well, IMO. The biggest frustration I have is  that with Newgy's and any bots under $1000 USD, the spin and speed are linked together. In the club I play at, often both players push several balls till someone hits it a little high or deep, letting the other person attack. My Newgy can't approximate that... the balls are way too spinny for a moderate speed backspin. My 2 cents...

Alois, I also should have added that your website has done as much as the robot to improve my game, I watch some lessons and then try to mimic the conditions with the robot. Keep up the good work, fantastic website and you guys explain things so well.  JD

Anybody can send out comments about the Newgy Robo - Pong [not to say though that Pingskills is not as good, Pingskills is BETTER].          Thanks  Guys!
