Hi Pavan,

The first thing to check is that you have a rubber capable of generating spin. If you have a bat from a reputable Table Tennis brand and the rubber is not too old, then you should be fine on this account. Otherwise look into getting a new bat or rubber.

Secondly you need to ensure that you have a fine brushing contact when hitting the ball. A topspin ball is generally better off a low ball. This is because the topspin will cause the ball to dip meaning you can hit the ball harder and it will still be able to dip and land on the table. For high balls you can execute the smash which is a much flatter stroke.

As for the brands, it really is a matter of preference. The brands you mention all offer a good selection of Table Tennis equipment.
