I have been playing Table Tennis for almost a year now. For the months I used a cheap $15 dollar paddle. Since Christmas I have been using the Killerspin Jet 500. I am thinking about buying a Killerspin Diamond TC blade and Blast High Tension Rubber. I have been told that it isn't good to buy the good stuff until you are ready. So how will I know if I am? I want something that is good for looping, smashing, blocking, and good service. I have also noticed that butterflys stuff is cost more. Is it really just better or are you paying for the same?

Could you also tell me about different types of rubbers and what they do and what they are used for?

Thank you your lessons are great!

Hi Buddy,

There are literally hundreds of rubbers out there.

We try ti simplify things by recommending a few rubbers the Yasaka Mark VYasaka Pryde and Xiom Vega Pro.  These 3 rubbers progress from a good control rubber to a fast and spinny rubber.

Mark V has good control.  Pryde is a little faster and a little more spin.  Vega Pro is a high quality rubber that will give you more spin and speed and is a rubber that Jeff and I both use.
