I have been playing table tennis for 3-4 years now in informal games with friends at least once a week. I have used the Stiga Evolution paddle followed by the Stiga Pro Carbon paddle and am looking to replace my paddles now.
My strengths are Chop / Underspin, Backhand flip (topspin) and Forehand loop
My weakness is that I get in a locking position too often with my backhand as I tend to get defensive and have trouble converting a side/underspin to a forehand loop.
What is the good paddle I should buy to get to the next level? I have heard about rubbers like Mark V, Yasaka Razka, Tibhar Evolution MX-P, Killerspin Fortissimo, Butterfly Tenergy V, Sanwei Target National etc. With so many rubbers, it is confusing to decide on which one to buy.
Would it help if I can send you a video of my style with a practice robot. What kind of drills should I send a video? Thanks a lot for your help! Regards, Jay
I think you are on the right track with your equipment.
Get something with a rubber like Mark V as the next step. It can be confusing but keep your choices simple. I wouldn't go with anything too fast like Tenergy.
We offer an option on our site of the PingSkills Touch racket with Mark V. Take a look and see if it would suit you. PingSkills Touch.
