I have a a friend who wants to get more into playing table tennis but he has always recreationally played with a hardbat with short pimples all his life. Eventually he wants to play in a league with me which means I have to find him a legal bat for him to play with. If I remember correctly ITTF does not allow hardbats, so I think he would have to switch to something with a bit of sponge. Is there a good bat you recommend with short pimples and a thinner harder sponge, something more akin to a hardbat? He has tried my bat with inverted rubber and a thick sponge and he does not really like that sort of bat. For his style I think he would probably want to defend and chop more. I want to work with him but not sure how to help him as far as getting him a bat that he would like.
Any help is appreciated.
